The former Rhode Island Republican Senator who supports Obama tells a D.C. crowd Palin’s selection has had the unintended effect of energizing the Democratic side.

“People were coming into my office, phone calls were flooding in, e-mails were coming in, ‘I just sent money to Obama, I couldn’t sleep last night’ — from the left. To see this cocky wacko up there,” he says to laughter.

Adds that the Alaska governor has revived a “lackluster McCain candidacy.”
