Skip to comments.(Former Senator Lincoln) Chafee: Palin a 'Cocky Wacko'
Posted on 09/11/2008 12:35:53 PM PDT by nickcarraway
So much for a respite from personal attacks in the presidential race.
Former Senator Lincoln Chafee, the Rhode Island Republican who is backing Democrat Barack Obama, today stood by his remarks calling Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin a "cocky wacko."
Chafee told an audience Tuesday at the New America Foundation in Washington that Palin has revived a "lackluster McCain candidacy," calling her surprise selection "this firestorm, this tornado, into the whole presidential election."
Responding to an audience member's question, he said her speech at the Republican National Convention had also energized Obama supporters. "People were coming into my office, phone calls were flooding in, e-mails were coming in, 'I just sent money to Obama, I couldn't sleep last night' -- from the left. To see this cocky wacko up there," Chafee said, according to the Associated Press account.

Isn’t HE what most people would consider a real wacko?
I thought Sausage-Link Chafee left the GOP.
This is a long video- he says it at about 53:00
So what is new. When a liberal is faced with something that threatens tehm, they call it ‘stupid’, ‘racist’ or some other name.
Man oh man am I waiting for a Palin swearing in ceremony. We should have an email list to send reminder notices to.
I am quite sure that the expression “cocky wacko” is perfectly designed to apply to the likes of ..... Lincoln Chaffee.
This must be a case of “projection”.....
I guess the Obammie camp isn't checking their mail. This money has't been showing up yet.
FORMER Senator. I like the sound of that.
He is a wacky cocko.
Lincoln who? I really want to hear a former liberal RINO’s view of Palin. Yup. Really I do.
Is it fair to call Chafee a wacky cock?!
I LOVE IT!!
The more these idiots do this, the better it is for us.
In fact, at this point, they lose face if they stop and they lose support if they continue.
It’s win-win for McCain Palin from here on out.
This meathead is about as Republican as Mike Bloomberg.
The party was a convenience label.
President Bush Gave more support to Chafee than any other Republican running in 2006. He diverted support to many other candidates to get this guy reelected.
As close as I can come to putting this in words that Mr. Chaffee might understand: His statement is proof that Lincoln Chaffee is a feminine hygiene product.
I think you will reconsider that statement if you carefully consider the first word of that pair (of words).
THIS IS A MAN THE RNC HAS SUPPORTED FOR YEARS.
An amazing thing happened today, someone taught a bag of crap to speak, what next will Chaffe be able to do with(!)?
How lovely that he can come out of the closet and be himself at last.
So when is the commitment ceremony?
Thank you RNC, NRSC, and Bush for supporting this piece of shit.
Charles Nelson Reilly without the glasses or sense of humility?
I had hope that we had heard the last from this sorry POS. One of W’s failings was his support for this POS in the 2006 Republican primary against a far better opponent. Not only was Chafee a closet Rat, but the SOB has endorsed ZeroBama. He is in the same category as John sKerry—a traitor.
The pickins are pretty slim in RI.
Its after Barry divorces Michelle. LOL!
I am a woman; I am OUTRAGED!!
SEXIST BLACKGUARD !!
I believe that if one posts what is is that they would be banned.
Bump for later use.
There goes our chance of carrying Rhode Island.
Another reason why you need to give money directly to conservative candidates instead of the RNC.
You mean like “The Butt Hut”, “The Spanking Monkey”, “The Poop Deck”, or “Buttpluggers” (a fun queer rip-off of Fuddruckers)?
Lincoln Chafee -> Former Senator, Full Time Twerp!
Like wheat from the chaff, Sarah Palin separates real men from the counterfeits.
Yup. His opposition to the death penalty for Osama bin Laden qualifies him for that distinction.
Hell hath no fury like a dweeb scorned. Bet the guy never had a date with a pretty girl in his life. You can just see the nasty little wheels turning in his fatuous head: I”ll get ‘em all back for the way they shunned me. There, take that!
We have to find some way to make sure the opposition keeps calling Governor Palin names. What could be a better badge of honor than having Chaffee call you names?
Hey Chafee, cram it where the sun don’t shine, @$$wipe.
He is clearly as screwed up now as he was in the senate. Good riddence...
Inside his head?
When will this Man stop embarrassing an entire State! Seriously, we used to be neighbors, and I watched him spend several minutes feeling tomatoes and scratching his head. He just kept looking at the grocery list his Wife obviously gave him, with a screwed up look on his face. He finally gave up, without making a decision. Should we expect anything intelligent to come out of his bobble headed mouth?
The use of the term “Cocky Wacko” shows a strong command for the English language. There may yet be a reason why he is a “former”; although I am surprised he was “ever”.
The rantings of an in-the-closet poof.
and Chafee is a wacky cuckoo.
Why wouldn’t he? He was against the Iraq War and against the Second Amendment. This guy is in no way a real Republican, and I’m sure Sarah offends his delicate sensibilities.
I’m so glad Whitehouse beat him in the Senate race. I rather have a real liberal than this poser stabbing the GOP in the back.
Lincoln Chafee is a joke. It’s just too bad that he was elected in 2000. The Democrat candidate that year (a pro-life moderate-liberal) was the better choice.
I know. I endorsed Bob Weygand in 2000. He was a lot less creepy than Missing Linc.
