Thinking him more electable in liberal New England, the Republican establishment backed the moonbatty RINO Lincoln Chafee in his unsuccessful bid to hold onto his Rhode Island Senate seat instead of Steve Laffey, an actual conservative. Now this act of foolishness has been repaid:
Former Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee, who left the GOP after being defeated for re-election in 2006, called Sarah Palin a “cocky wacko” […] Chafee said that he “found much of Palin’s convention speech objectionable, particularly her ‘mocking’ assertion that Obama was overly concerned with al-Qaeda terrorists getting” their rights read to them. That “got to the core of everything wrong with the last eight years,” said Chafee. “I consider that wacky, and certainly her tone was very, very cocky,” he added.
Chafee is actually backing Obama, the most extreme leftist in the entire Senate, against a moderate from the party that kept supporting him even after he had been poking it in the eye over confirming John Bolton as UN ambassador.
Chafing’s seat was taken by Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse, the second-most extreme leftist in the Senate. Extreme leftist #3 is Joe Biden.
Promote sniveling liberal RINOs like Chafing, get burned. Promote conservatives like Palin, shoot up in the polls. Hopefully the Republican Party is learning from these experiences.
