If she’s disabled perhaps she can have Rangel’s parking space.

Isn’t it going to be fun when McCain introduces Sarah Palin to Washington!!!

Now now, people. You know that it's not allowed by the Established Elite to criticze liberal blacks. You can go to jail for that sort of thing.

Here is a website created by someone who has worked with Sarah Palin on corruption in Alaska. It’s worth a look for some reference material.

http://www.palinfightscorruption.com/palin/

[snip]Sarah’s entry onto the scene was out-of-the box, to put it mildly. She displaced former U.S. Senator Frank Murkowski from the Governor’s mansion and immediately set out to reverse years of preferential oil company policies. She rejected the oil companies’ gas pipeline plan in favor of an open, competitive process that resulted in the first concrete steps to significant gas production in Alaska. When one of the oil companies failed to develop a gas and oil lease that it had held for decades, she began forfeiture proceedings against it.

But more importantly, she wanted to clean up politics in Alaska. With total disregard for her own political future, she boldly took on her own party, holding it accountable for its ties to an oil contracting company that has since been connected with the bribery of several Alaskan legislators. This angered the state GOP leadership and long-time party activists who benefited from significant campaign contributions from oil.

As recently as this past spring, during the Alaska GOP state convention, she asked GOP delegates to turn their back on corruption and choose new party leadership independent of oil lobbyists. But using blatantly illegal parliamentary tactics, and creating an exodus of disgruntled delegates in the process, the party avoided that change by the thinnest of margins.

Frankly, that explains the current intrastate campaign against the governor. When the Alaska state senate president attacks Sarah for lack of experience, one need only investigate that GOP senator’s deep and unseemly connections to the oil industry. Even on the other side of the aisle, internal attacks are explained by connections to oil or, in the case of the legislator purporting to investigate her for ethical lapses, gubernatorial aspirations.

So what about the people who know her, her constituents? Unlike the disgruntled political adversaries and oil company lobbyists, real Alaskans from all political stripes endorse her with a resounding 80% approval rating, the highest of any governor nationwide. Why? Because they know she’ll never sell out. Pundits concerned about her advancement to the Oval Office should take some comfort in that.

What is going on with the America I grew up watching?

America is being destroyed by the inside....

Just like Israel...Although Israel is a few years advanced into its own destruction, Americans should take note, you are following in Israels foot steps, its time to give the muslim guy running for president the royal boot.

This crook should be in jail. Two months to go, and we haven’t seen low, yet. By the time this is over, the Dems won’t be able to reach high enough to touch bottom.

The more the likes of Rangel and the elite, leftists liberal indivudals and organizations (like the MSM, DNC, NOW, etc.) treat her this way, the more her fame and affinity with the rest of America will grow...to the point of burying them in a political landslide that has skirt tails reaching well into congress IMHO.

Let them keep at it.

Charley is mentally “challenged” by the way. Not disabled, rather a government school trained drone.

Take the high road and just retire.

The fact that morons like Charlie Rangel, Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha are in the House of Representatives tells me everything I need to know about their constituencies, so if I were Charlie, I wouldn’t be waving that “disabled” word around.

Hell ole Charlie likes to play the I speak straight game. He called Zell Miller a mean Son of a B***. Then when he gets called on the carpet for it he says, hey I am telling it like it is. I'm surprised it took him this long. In reality Charlie is the mean SOB. Also a low life, but he's a Dem and that's par for the course.
