    Anytime those hypocrites can be shown for what they are, is a good time.
    Uh, this Democrat doesn't expect that. Don't talk like all Democrats speak with one voice. It's just as absurd as saying all Republicans do.

    Not at the expense of the mentally retarded.

    I don't know what kind of people you hang out with though.

    Too soon. Give it about another week or two. I won't disappoint.
    Too soon? Come on, you're the tough guy who thinks no joke is off-limits.

    I'm a liberal and I stand behind Palin 100% on this issue. So cut it out.

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

    Only at the expense of homos, polacks, blacks, blonds, etc...amirite?

    Well, no, not them either. Maybe a blonde joke or too.

    Here's a rough idea - if you can't say it in front of them, don't say it behind their back.

    If you told a crude joke about blacks, for instance, you'd be assuming that I approve of it. I don't. I would say so.

    Why is it "too soon" to tell dead Haitian jokes? Why?

    The only people who would defend it are liberal. Not all liberals are defending it. Kind of like the rhombus/square relationship. All squares are rhombuses but not vice versa.

    That's a load of crap. You can't prove that.

    Someone already posted a good example in this thread of Ann Coulter using the term in an insulting way.

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

    This kind of reminds me of this:

    Vice President Dick Cheney apologized Monday for what his spokeswoman called "an inappropriate attempt at humor" that implied that inbreeding is common among West Virginians, a remark that elicited outrage from the state's senior senator.

    Asked during a question-and-answer session at the National Press Club about the fact that a search of his family tree found he is a distant relative of Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential front-runner, Cheney said the two politicians were unlikely to hold a family reunion.

    He said that the Cheney line on his father's side of the family dates to 1630's, and a Cheney family line on his mother's side dates to the 1650's.

    "So, I had Cheneys on both sides of the family - and we don't even live in West Virginia," Cheney cracked. After pausing for laughter from the crowd, Cheney added, "You can say those things when you're not running for re-election."
    "This Administration will constantly strive to promote an ownership society in America. We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest that more people own their own home. After all, if you own your own home, you have a vital stake in the future of our country."" GWB
