When an isolated is not isolated by a known track record of being funny and reads about "retards making fun od retards" and is delivered deadpan, it is not readily interpreted as being funny, it read as a deliberate spiteful remark, delivered properly it could have been funny, ad i would have laughed
only side I am coming from is that there is a difference between deliberate hate speech (which is how your post read), and making a big fuss over a joke.You are coming from so many sides its just not even funny.
"my mom was governor of alaska" - couched in a comedy show renown for satirical humor, and it was funny.
"Nice...a retard who is only hired BECAUSE she is a retard being used to make fun of a politicians retarded kid.." - delivered deadpan by an unknown person in a random internet debate site is not so obviously funny, it reads as deliberately hateful. (especially when you then go on and continue hateful posts about peoples fat asses ect, your tone is 100% hateful, how can we automatically know the difference?)
I am not spun up at all, I am just pointing out that your post came across as being offensive, and illustrating the difference between what the show did and your statement, and there is a HUGE difference, so sorry if you fail to see it.I AGREE...Ms Palin isnt doing herself any favors. I AGREE...its probably been blown out of proportion. But look how spun up YOU are...and no one implied your daughter was a slut ALA David Letterman or a retard ALA Seth McFarland.
Point is simple...attack politicians...thats a time honored tradition. Leave their families and especially their children out of it.

Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
Exactly how is it playing vicitim to point out it is offensive to those who have kids born this way? Explain your bs.Let's play victim, victim, victim!
Boy do you have a reading comprehension problem. Take a deep breath and try to follow along because I'm running out of crayons to help you out.Denigrate hate crimes legislation; deride political correctness; but let's get our panties in a knot when a functioning actress with Downs Syndrome makes a joke about your Goddess-upon-a-Moose.
The point I made was not about the joke but attacking someone who actually does have a child with this illness if they take offense.
Next time try to actually read the replies before your emotions take over.
Isn't there a gay cowboys eating pudding movie you need to get back to?

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
That said, Palin's an idiot and also a huge hypocrite for excusing Limbaugh for doing the same thing. And I think it's awesome that someone who actually has DS is involved in this, and on the side of humor. Palin got nailed on this one.

Overreacting doesn't do anything to change things. This is the third poor reaction over this issue from her in a very short amount of time. First, she overreacted about Emmanuel. Then she said that it was okay for Rush to call people with special needs "retards". Now this.
You're not playing the victim, but she sure the hell is. She even justified Rush's use of the word because "it was satire". THEN, she criticizes a show that IS satire.
