DUBUQUE, IOWA Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is throwing down the gauntlet in the first-in-the-nation state of Iowa.
The former Philadelphia mayor and chairman of the Democratic National Committee is calling on Democrats to help him match the political star power of Sarah Palin.
In an e-mail to Iowa Democrats, the tough-talking Rendell is promising to draw a bigger crowd at the state party's upcoming Jefferson-Jackson dinner than Palin was able to muster at the GOP's annual Ronald Reagan dinner last month.
"Sarah Palin was able to get 1,300 people to show up at the Republican Party of Iowas dinner last month. I can do better than that at this years Jefferson-Jackson dinner," Rendell predicts in a message to drum up interest in the Oct. 16 event, where he is the keynote speaker.
Late Wednesday, Iowa Democrats said they were only 250 tickets from surpassing the turnout for Palin. Rendell said besting the GOP's attendance mark would "send Republicans and tea partiers a message," and then went on to take a swipe at the former vice presidential nominee.
"While Palin has offered nothing but extreme rhetoric and a repackaging of failed Bush-era policies, Democrats have provided real leadership, and our nation is better off because of it. As someone who has served at all levels of government, I can spot a real leader when I see it, and Sarah Palin is anything but that," he wrote...

Love this comment at the site: She has a 22% favorable rating and she is selling out venues all across the country. 22% favorable and everyone is clamouring, will she or won't she run. 22% favorable and she sold 3 million copies of her first book with a second book and book tour ready to be unveiled in Nov. 22% favorable and she has her own show coming out in Nov on TLC 22% favorable and she is either #1 or#2 in every search engine in the country.My Gosh what would happen if she hit 35% favorable.
Wow...They is scared.
That’s freakin wonderful...
Ed Rendell - Ed Schultz? Are they related?
Fast Eddie is skeered.
Actually, Fast Eddie....I’ll hold your arms behind your back and let her have as many swings at your pie hole that she feels like taking.
You are the kind of weasel that would hit a lady, aren’t ya boy? Disgusting little germ.
So damn true..that comment rocked!! Ed Rendell is such an idiot..first he goes on and on about how she is irrelevant and stupid, yet he needs his whacko supporters to come to Iowa to “Defeat her” LOL why is he trying to beat her if she is so irrelevant..Poor Mr. Ed, it must suck to have an IQ below cockroach level
Count on Dums to beat an idea to death.
With the 10.1 Umemployment stats, he better worry it’s not a lynch mob.

I’ll bring tar if you bring feathers.
I saw Sarah Palin in Dubuque in the last days of the 2008 campaign, and the joint was packed and jumpin.
If Sarah Palin could charge rent for living in these guys heads she’d make Warren Buffett look like a pauper.
Pathetic Rendel is begging Marxist democrats to attend, and Iowa's Republican Dinner Event with Govenor Sarah Palin as their keynote speaker, was a complete sell-out in less than 2 weeks.
I continue to me amazed at how much time the Dems are spending on such a "loser". Hahahahaha.
Rendell knows he can’t fill a room on his own so he uses Sarah. THEY KNOW lol
Rendell is a loser and a cry baby that sees his libtard world coming to an end very soon.
He’s a thug. He has no business even mentioning her name. He’s too much of a lowlife.
Right. Rendell is a typical slimeball, democrat thug used to rigging elections. I can’t stand to look at him. Seztac is going down hard, and deservedly so.
Wouldn’t that be a laugh riot. Rendell running away like a vampire from sunlight.
YES. I’d pay to see it. I’d pay to see it again.
He's always nauseated me. And he's been a disaster of a governor. It will take PA a long time to dig out of the damage Governor Cheesesteak has wrought.
I take comfort in the fact that some of the stench emanating from Harrisburg will dissipate once Tom Corbett takes office in January.
Perhaps Fast Eddie should spend a little more time trying to save PA from utter ruin and wait until he is no longer governor before moving on to his next job.
Oh, and if Ed, his judge spouse or the teamsters are reading this, eat sh#t and die. [Sidebar: I post with my real name a$$holes]
Rendell is so full of shite that you can smell it when he appears on TV. Typical Dim.
