    Did she go on national TV and make a spectacle of herself over his comments? I was under the impression she made a blog post on facebook. Perhaps you know something else that I don't...

    What are you talking about? I just provided the evidence.

    Thank you for pointing out the part about her having it brought to light by someone else and how it clarifies what prompted her to speak out about it. Just further proof that she was simply championing a cause that is obviously very close to her.

    And there's certainly nothing wrong with that.
    The amount of on this is quite amazing. So what you are saying is that Palin didn't do this for political reasons? Rush Limbaugh is now using the word on his show and not a SINGLE word from Palin over its use. That alone is proof enough that she went after Emanuel for political reasons alone.

    No, you did not. You made conjectures but you provided no evidence.

    No it isn't. It may be proof that she finds Rush Limbaugh irrelevant.

    You're shallow and self serving analysis is retarded.

    ZOMGWTF if the next post isn't Palin condeming my use of the word retarded, then she's just political and hypocritical.

    And what does that have to do with the issue?

    Her Timing: After being made aware of it
    One week late and word of mouth. People regularly use the word retarded on television and I've never seen Palin show public outrage at it.

    The Circumstance: Having a special needs kid of her own and having it brought to her by the parent of a special needs kid
    A week late, heard from 2nd hand and nearly 8-9 months after it happened.

    Her Alleged Outburst: A blog posting on facebook.
    Which has now made its way to FOX News. The company that Palin just happens to be working for. Coincidence I guess.

    Yeah it seems pretty clear her motives are crystal clear...to comment (you know, she is a commentator now) on issues that affect the American public (you know, she was a politician) and from her own experience (because you know, she is a human being).

    So...what were your thoughts on her motives...since obviously you can determine them despite what she and all the evidence say they are?
    No. I think the fact that she got so insulted by it that she now demands Rahm Emanuel to be fired is quite indicative of her motives. She is asking the people she lost to to fire one of their own because she wants to pretend she truly is insulted by something she heard from somebody who read an article a week ago on something that happened 8 months ago.

    It would be more accurate to say she's laying off Limbaugh for political reasons. She has every right to criticize Emanuel, though she went way overboard in calling for him to resign. Emanuel was being a massive, immature, asshole, just like anyone who would use innocent helpless people to represent an insult, not to mention mock them openly. Don't you think?

    Rush Interviews Governor Sarah Palin

    RUSH: We are going to open this hour with a rare personal interview, a rare guest. It doesn't happen much on this program, but we are happy to have with us former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, whose book, Going Rogue, hits the shelves today and it's already headed for I think a record in sales. Governor Palin, thanks for making time. It's great to talk to you again. We spoke last Thursday in an interview for the Limbaugh Letter, but it's great to have you here on the radio.
    You know that is not true.

    He didn't openly mock anybody. He called a few people retarded behind closed doors. That you are trying to lie about the circumstance surrounding the use of the word is quite telling. More phony outrage I guess.

    That there may have already been some previous motivation there? I dunno, it was worth pointing out that he already had a reputation for inciting controversy.

    Exactly. After she was made aware of it. Thank you for conceding that.

    People regularly use the word retarded on television and I've never seen Palin show public outrage at it.
    Hold up!!! Stop the presses!!!! Politician takes exception to the words of a rival faction's politician before going after the South Park kids. Who knew?


    A week late, heard from 2nd hand and nearly 8-9 months after it happened.
    The first week day after the story was brought to her attention after it making the news for the first time. I don't see anything odd about that. But of course, I'm not creating issues to smear someone with, either, so....


    Which has now made its way to FOX News. The company that Palin just happens to be working for. Coincidence I guess.
    Wait!!! Stop the presses again!!!! FNC makes story out of pundit's comments. Who knew?

    No. I think the fact that she got so insulted by it that she now demands Rahm Emanuel to be fired is quite indicative of her motives. She is asking the people she lost to to fire one of their own because she wants to pretend she truly is insulted by something she heard from somebody who read an article a week ago on something that happened 8 months ago.
    OK, I just fail to see how she was made aware of it has any bearing on her motives. If she heard it, read it, saw it, signed it, got it through a medium...that doesn't change the fact that she is responding to something that did happen and made the news.

    Red herring much?
