Ed Rendell, the Democratic governor of Pennsylvania and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told Fox News on Saturday that the Tea Party movement reflects the anger many Americans feel about the current state of the economy, but dismissed the notion of the Tea Party as a legitimate political movement.

I make the Wee Wee look smarter than Albert Einstein
whistling past the grave yard
Oh! Really? And the word "Legit" in the title implies "Illegitimate" as in the Fraud who inhabits 1600 Pensylvania Ave. WeeWee'ed indeed!
Thank you, my crooked shyster socialist overlord, for reminding me to send a donation to the illigitimate Contract From America.
Which I just did.
Anyone sporting a “comb over”
Big Fat “Tub o’ Lard” Fast Eddy Rendell
a real POS for the hard working citizens of PA
And you would have to PAY 100,000 people to attend and bus them in. Such is the support for the Dem astroturf.
My sentiments exactly.
Can we reject him as govenor?
YES! He is not going to convince anyone of his declarations. This is a grass roots movement and the power of it will be felt in every corner of this nation. Ed Rendell is just another knee jerk socialist who reminds me of someone from the Supranos. Anytime he is on FOX with his opinion, I find something else to do.
I reject your reality and I substitute my own.
I have totally rejected anything from the Federal Government.
When was the last time average, middle class people stood up in large numbers to resist the federal government? Not in my lifetime.
Our tyrants are rightfully frightened at the resistance that is brewing and growing.
Rendell will eventaully regret his statement.
Typical Marxist obfuscation.
Their rally against ObamaCare in September, 2009, only attracted a few dozen people, far less than Rendell could get for puppies or any other cutesy cause.
In contrast, the Coffee Party movement has real clout.
In seven months, this movement with no clout will have a message for Rendell: "Real Americans can see the Potomac from the House."
#12,,,I have NEVER seen such crowds of voters, all over the country at anytime since the 40’s. It’s unpresidented in my lifetime. Rendel might as well take a long walk off a short pier. Come to think of it, this is the largest turnout of citizens since the celebrations at the end of WW 2. How’s sucking lemons grab ya Rendal.

Beware! Those who threaten her now!

What makes something a legit political movement?
Governor X is
July 24, 2009
One of Eliot Spitzers call girls seems close to spilling the beans on another sitting governor that she serviced:
Now the elegant blond courtesan, whom well continue to call Annie, is talking about three dates she allegedly had with another states chief executive, who well call Gov. X.
Though Annies former boss, ex-madam Kristin Davis, corroborates that Gov. X was a client, his spokesman flatly denies that the married politician has ever hired hookers
He was a very standard client. He didnt take the full hour. There was no exchange of money. Michael handled the payment.
I had two more dates with the governor. Never in public. Always for just an hour, around dinner time. Hed arrive at the apartment in a suit. I never had a problem with him, like I did with Spitzer. He was always nice. There wasnt a lot of conversation. It wasnt a girlfriend experience, but he was relaxed. He was very appreciative, like I was giving him a sort of affection he wasnt getting elsewhere. Later I found out he was married. His wife is quite prominent in her own right. (Annie and Davis say Gov. X is free to say he didnt pay for sex, since Michael took care of the bills.)
I went through all U.S. governors and left out females, those who arent married (Corzine in NJ), those who were not governor in 2006, those who were not married in 2006 (Crist in FL), and Sanford in SC for obvious reasons.
The criteria set by the NYC call girl was that the male was governor in 2006, married, and his wife was quite prominent in her own right. She also strongly implies that he is still a sitting governor.
So I read the NGA bios of all 25 first ladies whose governor-husbands meet that criteria. Only six or so first ladies can be considered quite prominent:
CA Gov Arnold Schwarzeneggers wife, Maria Shriver
MN Gov Tim Pawlentys wife, Mary (district court judge from 1994-2007)
PA Gov Ed Rendells wife, Marjorie (3rd Circuit US Court of Appeals judge)
VA Gov Tim Kaines wife, Anne Holton (district court judge in Richmond)
Less prominent, but still more so than others:
NH Gov John Lynchs wife, Susan
TN Gov Phil Bredesens wife, Andrea Conte
WV Gov Joe Manchins wife, Gayle
The call girl would have known instantly that Arnold is married to Shriver. Hes by far the most recognizeable of the seven listed above and his marriage to her is very well known, so she wouldnt have found out later that he was married, as she said she did.
The last three governors listed have less prominent wives than the first tier, who are all federal judges.
Obviously, out of those three, VA and PA are the closest to NYC (although we know the initial meeting happened outside of New York).
Lots of circumstantial evidence here, true, but still interesting nonetheless. I wasnt going to post any of this just yet, until Rush said this today:
Theres also some news that another governor has been tagged as a client of the same hooker that Eliot Spitzer used. Well, I know who it is. I know who its being reported, but I dont have a source thats firm enough. Yes, its a blue state, a lot of eagles in this state. Not an inordinate amount of eagles. What, Snerdley? Well, what do you think? Im not going to mention any names. Its a blue state, lots of eagles. These birds dont fly, but theres still lots of eagles.
Rush also linked to Deus Ex Malcontent:
Well, during the interview [with Opie and Anthony], she admitted that someone she called Governor X employed her services at least ten times during a year-and-a-half period. She apparently wrote his name down on a piece of paper and showed it to Opie and Anthony, who then proceeded to spend the next ten minutes dropping hints that a 4-year-old couldve deciphered.
Between my research, Rush, and the hints on this radio interview, Id say the good money is on Ed Rendell, the Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania.

Could brewing sex scandal mean Ed Rendell will have to hightail it out of Harrisburg?
Friday, July 24, 2009 at 07:05AM
Gawker says “The thought of Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell having sex is utterly horrifying, so he’s one we’d rather not even think about.” Still, Fast Eddie makes the short list at 15-1 as the mystery governor with a “prominent wife” who also paid for sexual services through the same madam whose escorts knocked Eliot Spitzer’s socks off.
Marjorie Rendell, is a federal judge who sits on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the guv is only an hour or so from New York, but serial skirt chaser Arnie still is Gawker’s morning-line favorite.
Now comes this tantalizing exchange from the Opie & Anhony satellite radio show, as reported by Deux ex Malcontent.
The hosts were interviewing Kristen Davis, who spent four months in prison over the Spitzer hooker scandal. She wrote down the name of Governor X on a piece of paper, showed it to the boys, and then listeners were left to decipher the sneaky pol’s identity:
“What, did he pay her in coal and steel?”
“I guess he had a little filly on the side.”
“Did he used to be an Eagles scout?”
The whole thing ended with show regular Jim Norton making a hysterical Freudian slip during the plugs for his upcoming gigs.
“I’ll be in Pennsylvania this weekend,” he said, then corrected himself to the sound of everyone’s laughter.
Don’t sound like no Arnie to me.
The MSM has done everything possible to discredit the Tea Party and the tea partiers still keep coming.
Just wish this guy was still the Dem leader as he is completely off his rocker.
See, somebody in Pittsburgh likes Ed Rendell! Former Pittsburgh TV news reporter Leslie McCombs lobbied the state government to pass a $75 million film-industry tax credit that would benefit her client, Lionsgate.
But Leslie didn’t register as a lobbyist. And state senator Jeff Piccola said that’s a big no-no. Rather than refer the matter to the state lobbying commission, Piccola said he was going to hire a private investigator to look into the matter. And by matter he meant steamy affair between McCombs and Rendell.
McCombs did little to dispell the romance by attacking Piccola in yesterday’s Philadelphia Daily News.
“Clearly, it is being suggested that I have an inappropriate relationship with the Governor. That suggestion is disgusting and insulting, and I am appalled that an elected public official can get away with such slanderous behavior,” McCombs wrote in the e-mail. “It is deeply hurtful to me and my family.”
Fair enough, pretty eyes. You can deny the allegation, but Harrisburg scuttlebutt says your a frequent dinner guest of the Guv. And here’s a photo of the lovely couple sitting next to each other at a recent Pirates game (Rendell says there were five other people at the game, including McComb’s son).
Piccola claims his private-dick isn’t digging up dirt, just doing an honest day’s work. John Baer, the astute political observer at the People’s Paper says ‘hogwash.’ But Baer, like the Dee-N editors, can barely contain his glee at this emerging between-the-sheets peccadillo.
There were 40,000 plus across from the Washington Monument on the evening of the 15th, I was there.
What Ed's democratic mind can't get it's arms around was there were 800 other rallies that day and more before and after from coast to coast.
I really get tired of the “Uncle Ed” nice guy routine.
“has no ability to bring a lot of people to key sites at key moments in time”
Unfortunately for you dims, they only have to go to the ballot box.
Okay, thanks Ed. I guess that about wraps it up.
Fast (and Fat) Eddie, Millions upon Millions reject out of control government spending. You prove the fact that denial is not just a river in Egypt.
The blessings of Katy Couric and Brian Willilams, in the eyes of the DC Beltway cocoon.
See you in November pumpkin-pie-faced, bad-comb-over, sleazy-politician, POS-domestic enemy.
Liberals feel they can say anything they want, create any alternative reality, because the mainstream media will back them up and present evidence that up is down. The tea parties were at first completely ignored by the MSM, but were forced to report on them by the internet, talk radio, and Fox, not to mention the sheer magnitude of the phenomenon. Liberals feel betrayed by the MSM because it in the end had to tell the truth about certain aspects of the tea party movement.
Tea partiers don't care whether they're "legit" or not. It's come down to this pitiful state for the left, a condition of having no better ammunition to fire at us than to "whip" us by calling us illegitimate, when we don't need legitimacy to vote liberals out of office.
They’re afraid and this is their way of showing it. Fast Eddie can talk all he wants. We’ll do our talking in the voting booths this November.
So another DemacRAT lays down the Fatwahhh on the Tea Party supporters, lets see how well that works out /sarcasm.
The Tea Party movement has a certification of birth record known as The Constitution. Get over it.
Where do we go to reject Dumbocrat Rendell as a legitimate politician?
For the life of me I can’t understand why Fox constantly has this bag of excrement and propagandist for the Democrat party on constantly.
When he comes on you can see he is clearly a hand puppet operated by the progressives.
Why don’t’ they simply record his last visit and then play it back every time we need a Democrat response to anything. It will always be the same.
Another bad comb over . . . .
Rendell is an idiot.
He must have meant “legitimate party”. Anyone with a High School education can see its a “movement”. But then again many Dimwits have never grown up past high school so have an obstacle before them called reality.
Rendell needs an EEG.
We had a quasi Tea Party/Concerned citizen rally in my sleepy little town on main st. last week. There was about 3-500 people there which was astounding. I have NEVER seen a crowd like that in my town protesting in my 47 times around the sun.
So these dipwads can whistle past the graveyard all they want.
PLEASE FORWARD these links to anyone who has been lied to by the media and politicians about the Tea Party Movement, which of course is everybody.
The True Face of the Tea Partiers
If the TEA party is such a minor movement, why bother to mention it?
Remember, November 2nd
I would check his phone records to see if Obama called and told him to make an ass out of himself so the Sunday shows would not be talking about the Chicago trial today
yes thats right i live in pa i will certinly do my part to oust this anal pain of mine. i would say he has destoyed the commonwealth of pa to the commonpoor.
I'd vote for "Eye Brows" Kaine.
