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?
