As mayor of Quitsville and president of Facebook, Sarah Palin is tasked with the awesome responsibilities of reading every single newspaper in the world and expressing the outrage of a nation via social networking. Today the target of her fauxtrage is Rahm Emanuel, who, in a closed-door meeting with liberal activists, said — quoting the Wall Street Journal here — “F–ing retarded.”
Yes, he was referring to the activists’ decision to campaign against conservative Democrats who opposed health care, but Sarah Palin isn’t exactly one to read an entire story. So naturally she saw “F–ing retarded” as a slur against the world’s most perfect political prop baby, TRIG PALIN, and she rushed to her IBM Thinkpad to call for Emanuel’s resignation — or firing — on Facebook.
The Obama Administration’s Chief of Staff scolded participants, calling them, “F—ing retarded,” according to several participants, as reported in the Wall Street Journal.
Whoa there, Sarah Palin! Watch the language, you betcha! I believe you mean “Fucking r–ded.”
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. No comment from his boss, the president?
Gah! If Sarah Palin paid half as much attention to grammar, sentence structure and diction as she does to every perceived slight against herself, she’d still have enough time to be governor.
Anyway, you’re on notice, Rahm! People on freakin’ Facebook are calling for your head. It can’t be long now!
