Ex-NY Mayor Ed Koch stands up for Civility

Mayor Koch has always been one to speak his mind. His comments regarding that recent attacks on Sarah Palin are no exception:
The fools in politics today in both parties are those who think she is dumb. I've never met her, but I've always thought that she is highly intelligent but not knowledgeable in many areas and politically uninformed. I don't believe she will run for president in 2012 or that she would be elected if she did. But I do believe she is equal in ability to many of those in the Republican Party seeking that office.

Many women understand what she has done for their cause. She will not be silenced nor will she leave the heavy lifts to the men in her Party. She will not be falsely charged, remain silent, and look for others - men - to defend her. She is plucky and unafraid.

Well said. I tire of listening to Newt Gingrich and Charles Krauthammer complain that Palin should remain silent... they join the Democrat comics and commentators who just want Palin to shut up. Apparently, this was the one thing they all liked about President Bush, that he will not defend himself. It makes it so much easier if those you slander and libel just take it in silence.
