Sam Stein at the Huffington Post, reports Gov. Rendell of PA calls out Mrs. Palin and her crooked ways.

Gov. Ed Rendell decried a double standard in the treatment of Sarah Palin on Monday, saying that if it was he who was at the center of the "troopergate" investigation, the press would be calling for his head.

"She [claims to be] a reformer," said the Pennsylvania Democrat. "And yet she is being investigated on the charge that she used her power as governor to fire someone who was going through a messy divorce with a relative of hers. Could you imagine if I was doing the same thing in Pennsylvania? You would be calling for my impeachment."

He goes on to say,

"[The McCain camp] has tried to again obscure the facts about Gov. Palin. 'She is a reformer and against earmarks.' No she isn't, when she was mayor of that town she hired a lobbyist to get earmarks... 'She was against the bridge to nowhere.' No she wasn't. She was for the bridge to nowhere first... She is a budget balancer. But she left the town in greater debt then when she became mayor, so she is not a budget balancer."

After hearing Ed attack Barack with the populist message during the primaries, it's great to see him work on behalf of the party. Kudos to Hillary and Ed. Obama needs to step back and let these operatives slice and dice Palin. Rendell is exactly right on the money. If he is skinny but tough, now is the time to show it.

Above all else, I think our country needs to change the last eight years of foreign policy mistakes of the Bush administration and their ultra-Neocons. We can't afford another four years of the Neocons.

Please, also Digg this.  

Update: Thanks to TomP, Here is a video of Obama in Michigan today saying she is basically lying.

Update: Youtube is blocking this video from being shown on Daily Kos, So here is the YouTube link.

Thanks to Everyone for my first trip to the Rec list. Let's stick together to fight these Evil, Lying and Corrupt Republicans Nationwide. The real Tip Jar is Here. Thanks Again.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
