    Re: Palin Blasts Emanuel for Calling Dem Idea 'Retarded'

    I actually agree with Palin on this issue, although I think calling for the guy to be fired is a bit overboard.

    I used to use the term "retarded" all the time for things that I thought were stupid....just like some people will say that something is "gay" if they don't like it.
    Although I don't believe in censoring speech, etc....I do recognize that using such terms are insensitive to many people and personally, I try to control my own verbiage to avoid using them.

    Tell me, dear aps, if he were talking about a "nigger-rigged" economic plan, would you still feel the same way. After all, we are just talking about an idea and not an actual negro (even if it is sans the associated dialect).
    First, when Strucky agrees with me, it says my opinion is not based on the person making the assertion.

    If Palin was not the person who was making these allegations, would you feel the way you do? jallman, you are not objective here. When MyOwnDrum, who voted for McCain/Palin can see how ridiculous this is, I know I am in a "reasonable" state on this subject matter.

    That didn't answer my question.

    And again, this is a red herring. It does nothing to answer my question and only calls on your irrelevant political differences with two people outside our conversation.

    Now would you like to go back and actually address my post?

    Palin just wants to be in the news again, she's an attention junkie I think.

    Its just her going "look at me, I am so special because I have a mentally handicapped child." There's no news here.

    I have never heard the term "nigger-rigged." Calling a plan "nigger-rigged" would not be something that would bother me, I don't think. And if someone used that term and it was directed at a plan made by Obama, I could see that would cause problems. But when an idea is called retarded, I just don't see how someone can take offense to that. Now, for me, I never use that word. I think it is incredibly immature. But to demand that he resign because he used an incredibly immature word directed at an idea is nothing less than ridiculous. If he used that word TO HER or IN FRONT OF HER, I could see her being offended. But he used it at a meeting that she was not present. I think her offense is weird, and rather sad.

    RealClearPolitics - Politics - Feb 02, 2010 - Obama's chief of staff sorry for 'retarded' remark

    rahm personally is a thug, he always has been

    and character counts

    also, too many of obama's crew lack the sensitivity and CREATIVITY to express themselves without having to go THERE

    it's not really news, in that many of us have always known

    but many probably don't, to them it might be news

    Whoa. I don't even know what to say to that after all the times you joined in on the "jallman's racism is disgusting" chants when it came to jfuh and the eggroll jokes.

    It bothered me even typing that word in a completely academic context. And you are gonna claim that it wouldn't bother you?

    Wow, your lack of objectivity when it comes to Palin is so bad that you even sell out core values you've expressed for years at this forum just to maintain a point against her.

    Wow. I think this conversation has pretty much run its course for now.

    It's like the word niggardly. I know that word, and I know it's not a racist word. There was a big thing about this several years ago in DC on that word because DC's mayor (a Democrat) was black (someone who worked for the Mayor made the comment). He didn't think it was a big deal, and neither did I.

    If you have evidence to back up when I called you a racist, please post it because I have NEVER called you that or even thought you said anything that even resembled that of a racist.

    You know, jallman, if I was the ONLY person in this thread who thought Palin was a joke, I might re-think my stance. But when I am joined by people who voted for her, I'm not concerned about your foolish allegations of my lack of objectivity. What a joke of a comment that is. Look in the mirror when you say that. You're blinded by your undying love for Palin.

    Now, would you like to actually address the post that you were responding to or are we just gonna snipe at each other while you pretend that your appeal to the popularity of your stance is somehow a validation that you are correct in your blatant dishonesty over something as obvious as the disdain you (and I) have over a word that uses "nigger" anything?
