Former GOP Senator of RI Lincoln Chafee calls Palin a "Cocky Wacko." CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Former GOP senator calls Palin a cocky wacko - Blogs from CNN.com If I had the ability to vote back in 2006, I would of honesty perhaps voted for this man. He was the ONLY Senate Republican to vote against the Iraq War. He's a Republican turned Independent. And he is 100% right about calling Democrats out who originally voted for the Iraq War and have since changed position on it while said Democrats make like they been against it all along. Glad to say he's from Rhode Island which where I've been born and raised.
