    I find it telling that Sarah Palin, who claims to be a "political correctness hating" good old girl got her panties all in a wad over this.

    Those of you on POTUS who are counting on Palin in 2012 had better wake up and smell the coffee.
    What a joke!!
    I don't think her "pantys are in a wad," I think she is pointing out the hypocrisy of your side.
    Sort of talking out of both sides of your collective mouths!!

    You give her much too much credit. A more complete quote from her FaceBook page:

    "Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the “N-word” or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.

    "A patriot in North Andover, Massachusetts, notified me of Rahm’s “retarded” slam. I join this gentleman, who is the father of a beautiful child born with Down Syndrome, in asking why the Special Olympics, National Down Syndrome Society and other groups condemning Rahm’s degrading scolding have been completely ignored by the White House."

    You may very well be correct on that.

    Or.....maybe you don't give her enough credit.
    I believe she is doing what she set out to do.

    I suspect that the Special Olympics got some heat since, as is noted in the story, it would be presumptuous for any organization to pretend to accept an apology on behalf of the population of mentally challenged individuals. No one can.

    you mean get media attention? it's no secret.

    point out a double standard? that's what both sides are dying to do to the other on every issue. it's gonna happen. R's say retarded stuff as well as the D's. Just so happens that the R's get pointed at more for it because they more often back up their ideology with exclusive terms including race, gender, religion, and sexual preference. R is an exclusive party. It's plain to see. And RK eats it up relishing each morsel of "hypocrisy and hubris"

    If you pronounce it ra-tard', like Alan on "The Hangover", it is not so offensive.
