    Tell me, dear aps, if he were talking about a "nigger-rigged" economic plan, would you still feel the same way. After all, we are just talking about an idea and not an actual negro (even if it is sans the associated dialect).
    would depend on how many valid definitions there are for the word. Retarded has a few, not all refer to a person with mental handicaps.

    What she did say was that she found it offensive that such language could be used by a public official in scolding other public officials and that she knows how hurtful it can be because of her own situation.

    As a public figure, herself, who has already had a history of championing these causes from a personal inspiration in her life, it would have been odd had she remained silent on this issue.

    Personally, I find the word "retarded" to have more applications in modern language. While I would never use the word in the mixed company of mentally challenged individuals and the people close to them, I find no offense in the use of the word to describe retarded ideas or comments.

    For instance, I think that, in addition to being a classless and dangerous thug, Rahm Emanuel is socially retarded as evidenced by his lack of discretion in what he says and how he allows his emotions to rule his rhetoric far too often for anyone in public office.
    Damn jallman just when it seems I have lost patience wth you, you come up with something so beuatiful as that statement.


    Well said my friend............

    nigger-rigged

    retarded

    Sounds to me like they are pretty equal in meaning, offensive origin, and demeaning connotation.

    So really? What's so irrational about Palin's association of the two within the context of how they degrade their respective groups?

    I'm sorry...did I make a wrong turn on my way back to the Palin/Emanuel thread and find myself in the wrong place?

    Or are you simply deflecting from the conversation at hand by howling about someone's signature?

    I think it's the latter of the two...
