More Rendell Hot Mic Comments!!! Palin ‘Not A Genius’ But Has ‘Very Good Political Instincts’

Dec 4, 2008 5:41pm

Further examination of the videotape reveals that Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell’s comments about Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano’s not having a life (and thus being the perfect nominee to be PEBO’s Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security) weren’t the only ones he made on the hot mic in Philly.

The stocky Democrat and chair of the National Governors Association also weighed in on another colleague — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Parts of the comments are inaudible, but here’s what you can hear:

"Look, she has a right to be here," Rendell said. "I think she has great instincts. She’s not a genius, but she has very good political instincts."

Rendell, the former mayor of Philadelphia, went on about the former mayor of Wasilla: "I think what she’s going to say is we need to give the new administration a chance and we’re going to cooperate where we can because that’s what the American people want to hear. They don’t want to hear any bulls**t."

In Palin’s remarks, she did not use the word bulls**t.
