Palin Tells Rahm Emanuel: "Ewe Lye"
By DP Fleming, D Pressing News Senior Reporter
Rahm Emanuel said that Joe Barton (R-Texas) typified the GOP "wide stance" when he apologized to BP for not providing a larger body of water in the Gulf of Mexico for the oil giant's spill. The comment was made on ABC's This is Week. Sarah Palin took umbrage, tweeting, "ROM, ewe lye."
"In case you forgot what Republican governance is like, added Emanuel, "Joe Barton reminded you." Palin posted, "ROM E Manule=dark skinned and missing his ring finger...gay?"
Barton called the $20 billion in damages BP will pay a "shakedown." "That´s not a political gaffe," Emanuel said, "those are prepared remarks."
Palin tweeted, "Come to my tea party, Rom, and I'll go shake you down on you. Whatcha think of that?"
