Stubbed Toe "As Bad As 6 Million Jews Killed"

Charles Rangel calls for an end to all ox goring.
Charles Rangel(D, NY) stubbed his toe Monday while leaving a radio interview with WWRL Radio's Steve Malzberg and Karen Hunter. Wincing in pain, he declared his injury equal to "the Holocaust."

The incident occurred due to a frayed piece of carpet, which caused Mr. Rangel to trip and kick his foot into a chair leg. Examining the damaged carpet after his fall, Mr. Rangel was incensed that no one had warned him to be careful walking through the clearly dangerous area. "This is just as bad as six million Jews being killed. The whole world knew it and they were quiet about it, because it wasn't their ox that was being gored."

He angrily emphasized that the building maintenance company, his interviewers, and even his own aides made sure that any oxen they were leading were steered well clear of the worn carpeting and any chance of being gored.

Paramedics treated and released Mr. Rangel on the scene, after examining the toe for fractures and recommending an extra-strength Tylenol to control the pain.

Mr. Rangel was unrepentant after the incident, when asked to clarify whether he really wanted to compare his stubbed toe with the demented slaughter of an entire people. He angrily denounced all of whom had failed to warn him.

"I am saying that people's silence when they know terrible things are happening is the same thing as the Holocaust, where everyone would have me believe that no one knew those Jews were killed over there."
