    No health risk? You don't really know much about what happens during a woman's labor phase of pregnancy, ehh? If it wasn't any risk to her or the baby's health then why didn't her doctor give her permission to fly to Alaska when told Palin's water broke? Actually, her doctor said afterwards that she had not given the OK, though Palin said she did check with her doctor. More of Palin's double speak?

    Palin was supposedly 4 weeks early with a Down's Syndrome baby, she claimed afterwards. Find a maternity doctor who would say it would be ok for a 44 year old, in that situation, to not get to a hospital asap, let alone to fly for 8 hours.

    Her judgement, if not her truthfulness, come into play whenever such a dolt judges someone else.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    The discussion takes part around 4:30 into the video clip.

    Here's the interview with Glenn Beck:

    case and point, my above usage of the word idiot, does anyone find that offensive? If you take offense to the usage of the word retard, then idiot should be even more offensive.



    Idiot | Definition of Idiot at Dictionary.com:

    This whole issue is just pure hypocrisy, over an accepted connotation and derivative meaning of the word retarded. Its usage was not even intended as a derogatory slur.

    Whining about political correctness one day, then taking offense over a colloquially accepted usage of a word the next day is rather hypocritical IMO.

    And Misterman, as to your post above about family of the retarded.. that is I, my brother is mentally retarded, and in fact would fit the definition of idiot I posted above

    Making an issue of this is both ****ing retarded and hypocritical. She is using her handicapped child for an excuse to play the victim here, she chose politics, she chose the national stage, don't tell me that she is this thin skinned, it is all a front for some gimmicky political points.
    Moron, Idiot, and Imbecile all were originally medical terms.

    Moron= Mildly Retarded

    Idiot= Moderately Retarded

    Imbecile= Profoundly Retarded

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mental_retardation]Mental retardation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    The term "mental retardation" is a diagnostic term denoting the group of disconnected categories of mental functioning such as "idiot", "imbecile", and "moron" derived from early IQ tests, which acquired pejorative connotations in popular discourse. The term "mental retardation" acquired pejorative and shameful connotations over the last few decades due to the use of "retarded" as an insult. This may have contributed to its replacement with euphemisms such as "mentally challenged" or "intellectual disability". While "developmental disability" may be considered to subsume other disorders (see below), "developmental disability" and "developmental delay" (for people under the age of 18), are generally considered more acceptable terms than "mental retardation".

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

    So basically, no matter what new term the Word Nazis come up with in the coming years to label a 'mentally handicapped' person, school children will hijack that term and use it as an insult, which will eventually incorporate itself into the language in its slang form. This will require, then, the creation of a new term, and so it goes...

Amusing as hell tho.
    I'm highly offended at your usage of the word 'idiot'! I'm shocked, actually. You need to apologize and meet with mental disability advocates immediately.

    As an aside, I think Rahm sounded like an asshole in using the terms he did. Come on. You work in the White House. Show some effing class and don't use profanity and yell and scream. I was disappointed when Obama picked him as his COS.
    Tell that to Nixon and LBJ while you're at it, will ya!?

    Not her judgement as it never happened. Trig isn't her child but is her grandchild. Common Sense tell us that.
