Is That an Invitation... California?

"...Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) came out swinging against Republicans in Congress on Saturday as she addressed the unemployed during a forum in Inglewood.

The event occurred a day after new statistics were released showing that California's jobless rate last month went up to 12%, from 11.8%. California now has the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation, trailing only Nevada at 12.9%, and its jobless rate is well above the U.S. average of 9.1%.

Waters vowed to push Congress to focus on creating more jobs. "I'm not afraid of anybody," said Waters. "This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned, the 'tea party' can go straight to hell..."

Exactly! This is all one big misunderstanding! She meant to say "come", not "go"! Give her a break! ...for our children!

Maxine looks like an older M.O. Sounds like her as well.

Oh great my word verification is "coonda"

The ethics investigation for Waters is stalled behind Rangle's.

She is one of those professional (African American) victims much like Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton and appeals to her district in much the same way that they do.
