    Or it may mean that she loves her child and doesn't want to hide it in the closet somewhere because of its affliction. The child needs to know that it's loved, not something to be hidden away.

    Please prove that I know it is a lie. I have explained it numerous times, as one who listens from time to time I make an informed opinion. You are taking him out of context in an effort to slam palin.


    There is no lie, and you would do well to be more honest in your posting.

    Would you not agree however that there is a large difference between doing something as a parody and in a mocking way (mocking towards Emanuel's callous use of the slur, not mocking towards those the slur refers to) and someone doing it as a legitimate insult?

    For example...

    If someone states that a bunch of the kids running around their apartment comment are "Acting like a bunch of classless niggers" would you say that's on the same level, and worthy of the same condemnation, as someone who was recalling in a joking manner Chris Rock's famous "I love black people, I hate niggers" rant?

    Rham used the word specifically and purposefully as a means of insulting democrats by comparing them to mentally impaired people.

    Rush used the word as a parody and mocking of Rham's tasteless use of it, specifically even mentioning that he's doing it because the media would take it out of context and act like its the same as what Rham did if not WORSE than what he did in the way they cover it.

    Whether or not what Rush did was wrong or not, I don't see how anyone other than a complete hyper partisan hack would say they're equal in their "wrongness" and that Palin in any way should react the same way to Rush's parody as she did to Rham's actual insulting use of the slur.

    Would you not agree that someone doing a parody or a satire is not quoting the subject of the parody or satire?

    Nigger is not comparable to retarded in any situation.

    You're right, Rushbo's was very very very much worse. I don't see how anyone other than a complete hyper partisan hack would think calling ideas and strategies retarded is anything like calling people retards.

    Your presence in this thread, where the comments of El Rushbo are the subject. Unless .... you are commenting about something you actually know nothing about?

    Oh. So you DO know that it is a lie to keep repeating that El Rushbo was just quoting Emanuel?

    I suggest you re-read what I highlighted Jack and what I said about rush and hyperbole, and try again.
