    Well, you're both entitled to your opinions. She took offense, you don't. Different strokes... and political opportunism and all that jazz.

    Also, Rahm Emanuel gives me hives.

    That is all.
    Rahm Emanuel is a classic, sleazy, backroom politician. He would make a good character on the TV show Law and Order, who gets caught in bed with the Mafia and brought to justice.

    OMG! Is that all you liberals know how to do is just declare some stupid declaration like 'Epic Fail'? and name call? When you decide that you want to be honest, and actually debate an issue then come on back will you? Until then.

    Correct. And can you define the word 'Schmuck'? And can you define the word 'putz'?

    Emanuel was elevated to BBF status to help pacify the nervous Jewish vote. Now he is dispensable. Obama is a wolf in sheep's clothing regarding the Jews.

    There's nothing wrong with Palin taking offense at the word, even if she's doing it for face-time.

    What bothers me is that, as I understand it, the word was used in a private meeting.

    Taking public offense at something which was said in private when you weren't even in the room to begin with is, well, retarded.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Calling a person retarded is one thing, calling an idea is another. Palin is pathetic. Oooooh, everyone is directing the use of this word at me or my son! *rolls eyes*
