    Yeah, you better check that, sport.

    Newsflash: Rush was only quoting Rahmbeaux. Unless you can prove otherwise, stop telling the lies.

    Here you go. You can hear him yourself. Responding to Palin-Emanuel controversy, Limbaugh says liberals who complained about health care reform "are retards" | Media Matters for America

    Actually, Limbaugh made the statement that "'There's Going to Be a Retard Summit at the White House.". This was after he stated that Emanuel was meeting with disability advocates to apologize for his using the term F---ing retards. So when you think about it, Limbaugh's statement was ever worse than Rahm's because unlike Rahm, Limbaugh was actually talking about people with mental disabilities.

    So what was Palin's response to this? Did she call for Limbaugh's resignation? Did she ask Limbaugh if he had any decency at all? No, she put the following statement out through her spokesman: "Governor Palin believes crude and demeaning name calling at the expense of others is disrespectful."

    Wow, tough language huh? She will be campaigning for Rick Perry, whose top adviser uses the term retards often. Sarah Palin is nothing but opportunistic white trash with a following.

    Ok, that' the same clip I heard when this first hit the air and all I hear--still--is Rush quoting Rahmbeuax.

    The Liberal slobbering over this and CYA'n is funny as hell.

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

    So I go visit my mother last night, and cook dinner for both of us, while we are having chit chat in the kitchen she brings up this whole issue over the retard situation and talking about how stupid and overblown it all is. This is remarkable for 2 reasons, 1) she rarely comments on stuff like this, and 2) She is also the mother of my mentally retarded brother.

    Later last evening we also watch the Colbert Report together.. he spends a couple of minutes on this subject (after the hand crib notes), Interestingly enough was what had mom laughing the most hysterically during the show, it was when Colbert said we should all call Palin a "****ing retard" (it was satire).

    episode is available here.. the last 2 minutes or so are directly related to this topic, and quite entertaining - even to the mother and the brother of a mentally retarded person.

    [ame=http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/264042/february-08-2010/sarah-palin-uses-a-hand-o-prompter]Sarah Palin Uses a Hand-O-Prompter | February 8, 2010 - Jonathan Safran Foer | ColbertNation.com[/ame]

    I have a hunch that Colbert is soon to be reviled for his satire being too non satirical though.. time will tell, but my money is on Palin outrage over his comments.


    edit: I didnt expect the vid to embed, if you follow the link at the top of the clip it should take you directly to colbertnation and the segment I referenced.

    So, when Palin calls PBO a porch monkey, you gonna be ok with that, right?

    I think what's happening here, is that the Liberals are crossing into territory that they don't comprehend and will be most sorrowful for going there.

    Not quite true:

    Here's his exact quote:
    “Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards."

    So, he is calling liberals "retards" and saying that they shouldn't be bothered by being called "retards" because they are "retards".

    To say he's merely quote Emmanual is stretching the truth. He's expanding on something Emmanuel said, but he's adding his own indignant layers to the insult.

    Plus, "retard" is much more insulting than "retarded". Retarded is an actual word. "Retard" is nothing but insulting slang. If anything, Rush's words are much worse than Emmanuel's.

    To excuse him while calling for Emmanuel's head is hypocrisy at its finest.
