Rangel’s Sorry. Really.

Charles Rangel, giving a little speech this morning at the Association for a Better New York breakfast while a full crowd waited for a tardy Hillary Clinton in the Grand Hyatt ballroom, made a full apology for his recent trashing of Mississippi.

“For all of you from Mississippi, I’d like to extend my deepest apologies,” he said. “I promise I’ll visit as soon as I find a food taster. My brother David Dinkins isn’t available.”
