    Palin is not somebody you want against you. Good play, Rahm. Just apologize so it will go away.

    Rahm Apologizes for Privately Calling Liberal Activists "Retarded"

    White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel apologized to the head of the Special Olympics today after the Wall Street Journal reported the fiery Chicagoan privately called a group of liberal activists "f---ing retarded."

    And there's a difference between bitching about PC and taking exception to a total lack of decorum and professionalism. Not that I would expect you to think that clearly when you hear about that 'icky ole Palin'.
    There is no bigotry here. Retarded is a commonly used term to refer to something stupid. He was not being a bigot towards special needs people.

    If this was in public, then you would have a point. It was not though.

    It was in an official capacity with public officials by a holder of one of the highest public offices.

    And obviously, it wasn't so private that confirmation of his use of that slur didn't get out to everyone in the country.

    My point stands.

    If he was in the right, then why did he apologize to the head of the Special Olympics? or was he just securing his place for the ass clown relay?

    Every thing gets out these days, and I have commented repeatedly on my thoughts about that. People, be they republican or democrat, liberal or conservative, should not have to worry about every single thing they say 24 hours a day 365 days a year getting out. I am 100 % consistent on that belief.

    Look at this thread. it's simply easier to apologize and let it die than to not.

    So first you complain he makes Obama look bad, then when he tries to be political and not make Obama look bad, you complain.
