    Former GOP senator calls Palin a 'cocky wacko'

    Chafee says the governor has revived a 'lackluster McCain candidacy'

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Former Rhode Island Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee has called vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin a "cocky wacko" and said her selection as John McCain's running mate has energized supporters of Democrat Barack Obama.

    Chafee left the Republican Party last year after losing his bid for re-election and now supports Obama. He told an audience Tuesday at the New America Foundation in Washington that the Alaska governor has revived a "lackluster McCain candidacy."

    "They've just thrown this firestorm, this tornado, into the whole presidential election," Chafee said in response to an audience member's question about whether the Obama campaign should worry about Palin's presence in the race.


    He said her speech at the Republican National Convention had the unintended effect of energizing Democrats and 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 to laughter.


    Chafee said in an interview Thursday that he found much of Palin's convention speech objectionable, particularly her "mocking" assertion that Obama was overly concerned with al-Qaida terrorists getting read their rights.

    That comment "got to the core of everything wrong with the last eight years," he said.

    "I consider that wacky, and certainly her tone was very, very cocky," said Chafee, a visiting fellow at Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies. "So I thought they were appropriate words."

    I can't figure out if he is praising her or chastising her. Or whether he is saying her inclusion energizes the McCain ticket or the Obama ticket. He seems to be all over the place.

    The article title says "Wacko", but there is quote saying "Wacky."

    Wacky as in: Her sense of humor and personality makes me laugh .

    Wacko as in: She gets nude and hunts down people at night in the park.

    You are right the guy is all over the place. He flip flopped 7 times in the writing of this article.

    "Chafee left the Republican Party last year after losing his bid for re-election and now supports Obama. "

    So he loses an election in RI, which is a heavily democratic state as a Republican...That is no real surprise, but then he leaves the Republican party after he loses ??

    It says he supports Obama now after he lost ? What if he had won ?

    Is he even affiliated to a party now ? Not that he has to.

    Wacko and wacky are making more sense now.

    I think many go in wide eyed and fired up then come away years later rich and full of rhetoric. They sit in back rooms smoking cigars laughing at all of us...

    Oh they play us as fools. No doubt in my mind about it. The rhetoric about this or that as talking points and watch us run around like chickens with our heads cut off knowing they don't have a real care in the world about those points they argue about in mock rage.

    Sadly the majority of americans eat it up and continue to vote for one of the two big parties. Why would they stop doing it if it is working.

    Vote third party, send a message...even if it can barely be heard.
