    Good thing a union leader wasn't there with his Downs' Syndrome daughter. I'm sure anti-union thugs would have harangued him from the time he set foot on the grounds.

    Really. Really. Poor taste.

    You mean like cutting the budget for the care of disabled children or cutting the budget for special education?

    The credibility of the left is gone. They are so partisan they defend scumbags that interrupt special needs. this not defensible and shows the left is a disgusting bunch of immoral spoiled brats that care nothing about anything except their selfish agenda

    The left even call historians liars because they can never admit Palin is right . The partisanship on the left so extreme they are a lost cause/ Wait no they are just far out in left field they are lost

    How about the next time you're at a concert, with front row seats, I get a dozen people to stand in front of you and block your view.

    You good with that?

    You're most likely correct, considering the union paid for the makeup and shirts.

    Instead they could not even see the Governor who was honoring them.


    Shows what scumbags unions are
    could not see the governor...who was there for a photo op, a little good press.....hmmmmmmm....you are mad at the protestors because you don't like the message, but are you ok with the governor using the special olympics as a platform for a quick photo op, a way to generate a little good press for himself?

    please cite your evidence that this was nothing more than a photo op for the governor. Credible sources, links, etc.

    He is a politician, who has been under fire for months, who is going to be recalled, who badly needs some good publicity....common sense man, common sense, and politicians of all stripes do this..it is like shaking hands and kissing babys while you campaign...trying to make yourself look good.
