Sarah Palin-Endorsed Idaho Congressional Candidate Loves Barack Obama's Speeches
Idaho congressional candidate Vaughn Ward was so happy when Sarah Palin came to endorse him and help him raise $50,000 from nearby fat-cat potato planters last week, even though Sarah Palin lost her clothes and had to steal new ones, probably from Vaughn Ward. Ward, considered the Favorite going into tomorrow's GOP primary, may be in for a terrible next 24 hours, however, as news is going Viral about how he borrowed some hip-hop lyrics or Koran verses from Barack Obama's 2004 DNC keynote speech.
This revelation has been spreading around "Idaho political circles" (Facebook for potatoes?) for the past 10 days or so, and now a Republican fellow up there named Lucas Baumbach -- who owns a paint shop in Boise and asks you to buy paint from his paint shop in this very same video -- has spliced video footage together. THE POLITICO picked it up earlier today and now it is a big scandal among Washington DC bloggers, who will cast decisive votes in tomorrow's Idaho primary.
Here’s what Obama said in 2004: “As we stand at the crossroads of history, we can make the right choices and meet the challenges that face us. If you feel the same urgency that I do, if you feel the same passion that I do, then I have no doubt the people will rise up in November and this country will reclaim its promise and out of this long political darkness, a brighter day will come.”
And here’s what Ward said in January: “As we stand on the crossroads of history, I know we can make the right choice and meet the challenges that lay before us. If you feel the same urgency and the same passion that I do, then I have no doubt that our voices will be heard in November. And our country will reclaim its promise and out of this darkness, a better day is on the horizon.”
This is nothing. Vaughn Ward said that a better day is "on the horizon," which is considerably more Conservative and deficit-reducing and Christian than a better day simply coming. Sarah Palin knew this and that's why she endorsed him, duh.
STOP RAND-PAULINIZING VAUGHN WARD.
