Yep - it's true. Rep. Charlie Rangel, when asked why Democrats are so afraid of Sarah Palin and her popularity, said, "You got to be kind to the disabled."
The reporter then questioned Rangel on this, to see if he did, indeed, mean Sarah Palin. He did.
If I had been the reporter, I probably would have turned the comment back on Rangel by interpreting the 'disabled' to apply to the Democrats who are so afraid of her...but that's just me.
I realize that there is a lot at stake with a national election - but this is just too much! However, the more they talk like this, the better the chances McCain-Palin have of ending up in the White House.
