Charles Rangel Calls Sarah Palin “Disabled”

By Wyatt Earp | September 20, 2008

Well, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black.

No offense, “Congressman.”

NEW YORK ― Already under fire for his tax troubles, Manhattan Congressman Charles Rangel really put his foot in his mouth on Friday.

In a CBS 2 HD exclusive interview, Rep. Rangel called Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin “disabled.”

The question was simple: Why are the Democrats so afraid of Palin and her popularity?

The answer was astonishing.

“You got to be kind to the disabled,” Rangel said. (H/T - WCBSTV)

Stay classy, Charlie.

The funniest reaction I have heard to this story was from Ace, whose headline read, “Man Who Didn’t Realize $5000 Per Year in Luxury-Home Rentals Was Taxable Income Calls Sarah Palin Mentally ‘Disabled.’” Heh.
