Charles Rangel Calls Sarah Palin "Disabled" - Twice

Unbelievably, not only did Charles Rangel call Sarah Palin "Disabled" once, but twice. Here is the transcript from A video is available at the website below.

"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.

That's right. The chairman of the powerful House Ways & Means Committee called Palin disabled -- even when CBS 2 HD called him on it.

CBS 2 HD: "You got to be kind to the disabled?"

Rangel: "Yes."

CBS 2 HD: "She's disabled?"

Rangel: "There's no question about it politically. It's a nightmare to think that a person's foreign policy is based on their ability to look at Russia from where they live."

He later said that "Disabled" was not the word he meant. In fairness, I can not imagine that Charles Rangel actually thinks Sarah Palin is disabled. Still, that has to qualify as an almost unbelievable mistake. Especially given that he said it not once, but confirmed it on a second prompting.
