"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

You're at it again:
New York Daily News - Rangel flexes his funny bone:

"Rep. Charles Rangel: Harlem statesman, powerful politician and now, comedian.

Rangel showcased his comedic chops by ripping into the White House during his standup debut in midtown Saturday night - all in fun, of course.

'More than any other President that I can think of, you have really, truly shattered the myth of white supremacy,' Rangel told a Bush impersonator during 'Laughing Liberally,' a traveling lefty comedy show that stopped at Town Hall.

Rangel (D-Harlem), who is to become chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, one of the most powerful positions in Congress, told the President Bush look-alike he shouldn't be fearful of impeachment.

'I want you to rest assured that I will be out there trying to protect you against articles of impeachment,' Rangel said."

If that tickled your funny-bone (like it did mine), you can get the rest of the good laughs from Rangel's standup performance here. (Any bold emphasis added is mine.)

Now (as I adjust my tinfoil hat) I must wade into the conspiratorial waters here. If this is all in good fun, and as Rangel says "I will try to protect you against impeachment", what is he really saying? Is this ..... dew - doooooo .... dew-dooooo..... dew-dooooo..... like a double negative? If you are saying something as truth ...... but ...... being funny about it at the same time ....... does that make it 'un-true'?

That would mean what? That Rangel will be pushing for impeachment??? Oh, how I like a good conspiracy.
