Is Mrs. Palin Retarded?

Mrs. Palin is calling for Obama to fire his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, for calling a group of liberals “fucking retarded” during a private meeting.

How dare that big Jew use this hateful slur in a private meeting?!?

In a sanctimonious rant on her Facebook page, entitled “Are You Capable of Decency, Rahm Emanuel?”, Mrs. P compares his use of the word retarded to the use of “the N word.” She goes on to say: “Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities — and the people who love them — is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.”

Jesus, this woman is a piece of work. She is beneath shameless. Is there a word for that (besides “cunt?”) She even asks in her idiotic Facebook screed, “Have you no sense of decency, sir?”   I know that she employs a ghostwriter for her Facebook communiques, but what do you think the chance is that Mrs. Palin knows who made that phrase famous, and in what context?   If she did know, would she be stupid enough to compare Rahm Emanuel to Joseph McCarthy?

I don’t like the way Mrs. P has positioned herself as the public defender of the disabled. Just because she happened to get herself a Down Syndrome baby, she doesn’t get to represent Down Syndrome. Her exploitation of her child’s disability is deeply immoral. This photo of her, posing with a “constituent,” is what’s heartbreaking.

Sometimes, in private, we use words that others might find offensive. I know I like to scream “you fat pig” at people on TV, for example.   The first time I heard Bob Woodward on television, I asked my husband, “Is that guy retarded?” It was a real question: Woodward speaks very slowly. Every time he’s on TV now, my kid or my husband calls out, “There’s that retarded guy.”

Big fucking deal. I am a special needs mom, and I know where my heart is. I don’t need some self-appointed Queen of the Disabled Community to scold me or Rahm Emanuel.

Does that retarded bitch have no decency?

    ‘piece of work’ seems the right descriptive term to use here…

    “would she be stupid enough to compare Rahm Emanuel to Joseph McCarthy?”

    She might not but I would, and off the cuff, I’d suggest that Emanuel is approximately 10 times more dangerous to America than McCarthy ever was – and that’s if you assume (as I do not) that McCarthy was ever an enemy in the first place.

    But, yes, you are right that my darling Sarah made a mistake by joining the Language Police, but I’m mildly amused that a ‘free-er than free’ speech exponent like yourself rears away in fright from the word ‘nigger’, reducing it with all the delicacy of an Edwardian Lady to its initial. I have just finished watching the first series of ‘The Wire’ in which all the niggers regularly called each other, er, niggers. Good for them!

  3. I like a man who can saying ‘fucking retard’ it suggests he might be a bit frustrated and would enjoy some sexual frisson – but my fantasies aside and word of the week usage, of course Palin is educationally and intellectually challenged.
    Why would you call for some one to resign if you want to make a point about the use of the word ‘retarded – does she know what it means? Had he called Palin retarded then he would have been implying she was underdeveloped mentally and might only have an IQ of 70 to 85.

    What does she not want Rahm Emanuel to challenge stupidity or poor performance. You can’t jump from the use of the word retarded to an implication of offence to a community, not all people with disability have low IQs.

    The Special Olympics have a campaign to stop people using the word retard, which includes a device that counts the current number of uses of the word retard across the internet. I think we may have bumped it up past the number of 26,734 (as of yesterday)
    Sarah Palin is what I would refer to as a “full retard”
    Busting Rahm Emanuel’s balls about this is superfluous, go catch some real criminals, like the fucking fundamentalist (I love how most of that word is made up from the word mentalist) christians that do no believe in evolution.
    Wow, rant over, I’m off to make pastry. x

  5. arline says:

    She will use anything she can to vilify her opposition.

    I am sure the ones that will most likely respond with as much hate are the ones who have most likely used racial epithets, in private and in public, about our president.

    I loathe how shamelessly manipulative she is, and how much she has used her special needs child, to make her look holier than thou. Rarely does she ever mention her other children. Why? Perhaps they cant serve her agenda.

  6. Appletree says:

    Girl is just plain crazy. The fact that so much of the GOP base likes her is just plain scary.

  7. arline says:

    I used hate and really I should have used the word idiocy.

  8. boops says:

    the only person she cares about is herself. she is despicable.

  9. deja pseu says:

    Speaking as a mother of a child with mental retardation, Palin can kiss my ass.

  10. OMGGMAB says:

    I do not advocate the use of the word “retard.” I do find it offensive, but I hear it all the time from all sorts of people, young and old. It has become common lingo, sitting alongside words like “idiot” and “imbecile.” I still don’t like it, but I don’t believe we should be asking people to step down from their jobs for using it.

    And in a typical display of double speak, Palin reams Rahm for what she is guilty of herself. “I want to hold Tripp, not the retarded baby” (meaning Trig.) Ms. Word Salad is a mean spirited forked tongue lizard who has no business telling anyone they should step down from office for things they have said. Don’t make me start listing here the nonsense that has spouted from her mouth and the people she has offended.

    As for the comparison of Rahm Emanuel to Joe McCarthy, wtf? McCarthyism fostered an era where people who were so afraid of their own shadows, they turned on their friends and neighbors, called them communists, and made them out to be criminals. Lives were disrupted, careers ruined for no reason. People allowed their imaginations to run wild, which provided them the rationale to persecute others. The McCarthy Era is analagous to the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Both were tragedies born of ignorance and misplaced religiosity. Now just what has Mr. Emanuel done that compels you to believe he is advocating similar action?

    Back to Sarah Palin and her teabagger party. Let them take over the nation, who cares. I can be an atheist in some other country.

  11. annemarie says:

    Well, come on, he compared retarded people to liberals. That’s disgusting.

  12. Jenny Dunville says:

    Arline – Palin only cares that she’s in the news, it matters not why. OMGGMAB – yes, Levi said she called her own baby a retard, but her approach; bold confidence, massive ignorance, gum popping cuteness absolves her of any actual responsibility for her bloviation. Especially among her retarded followers.

  13. dust says:

    No, that would be insult for the retarded. She’s just power hungry stupid cunt.

  14. MJ says:

    I’ll always love Emanuel for the immortal utterance “fuck you, fatso” during the Blago mess – just because I love anyone as willing to utter FU as I would be if I could (damn workplace pussies).

  15. JK says:

    If it were spoken that a dam on a river retarded the free flow of water, would a President Sarah draw down the lake?

  16. erika says:

    I use retarded to describe only myself, in the way that sometimes I honestly do feel mentally challenged. No disrespect to anyone at all.

  17. HelOnWheels says:

    That f*cking Rahm. I loved and hated having him as my Representative when I lived in his district. He was always good for either a laugh or horror. I wish I had the freedom to swear in the workplace like he does.

    Mrs. Palin is an idiot and needs to get off that cross. And she should look at a dictionary once in a while.

  18. erika says:

    Now this is retarded :
    Wife: SC gov didn’t want fidelity in marriage vows

  19. hammie says:

    no, she’s a fucking spaz!

    (oops) xx

  20. Sister Wolf says:

    David – Hey, I’m just quoting your psychotic girlfriend! She wrote “the N word”, blame her.

  21. cker says:

    Hmmm, this rant from a woman that referred to her own child as “the retarded one”. It would seem to me that if she wanted to stand on the “politically correct” platform that she would censure her own venacular with the less emotionally charged phrase “mentally challenged”. Our dear sweet Sarah refered to her own baby as the retarded one as compared to Bristol’s son, the normal one. Will she ever shut the fuck up?

  22. JK says:

    Don’t regular people get in trouble for this sort of thing?

    I seem to recall some elected Democrats’ve taken some heat.

  23. you are killing me.
    i am with you all the way.
    she is a huge turd.

  24. Faux Fuchsia says:

    I don’t get Mrs Palin’s appeal…. Do people think she’s fab because she looks nice and has tonnes of kids? Don’t they notice that a lot of what she says makes little or no sense?

    Meanwhile, I’m wondering how long Bristol can keep this Celibacy-as-a-life-choice-thingamy going.

  25. Pam says:

    Being British, I don’t know quite what to make of the word ‘retarded’. I have a 12 year old daughter with cerebral palsy and a learning difficulty and it wasn’t that long ago that she would be known on as a ‘spastic’. This was a perfectly acceptable word to use and the main cerebral palsy charity in Scotland was known as ‘Scottish Spastics’. It was the way that the word was used that made it derogatory and I suppose the same has happened with the word ‘retard’. It’s even becoming wrong to say ‘learning difficulty’ in this country, the acceptable phrase is now ‘additional support needs’. I’m sure that will change in time too when enough people have used it as an insult.

  26. Talisa says:

    Rather than dwell on the use of “retard” (which I might add I do not like) in the english language let us focus our attention on Ms Palin herself and her inability to use any part of the English language effectively. She is one ignorant “slut” and needs to be “on the bus”

  27. Juri says:

    I though that the First Dude looks odd with glasses and without his goatee, until I realized It’s not Todd but some unsuspecting special needs fellow Sarah has hijacked for the photo. There’s something in his smirk that troubles me. What is going on? It looks like he is expecting something as a reward. Did Sarah promise him to let him touch her boobs afterwards?

    I wonder how long it took for her to dump that kid after the photo.

    Trigg looks pretty pissed off.

  28. hammie says:

    Pam: I am an Autie Mum and I am laughing at “additional support needs” – where does being politically correct become making a disability sound like shopping for a Girdle or Bra?

    There is a crew in autism world who argue over “has autism” and “Autistic”. I have been “unfollowed” on Twitter for using the wrong one!!

    I guess it is just how you use it. And I will often describe an individual with poor expressive communication or a strange manner as “Special Needs” as in “That Special Needs Dog Walker just scared the shit out of me” when you could easily sub in retarded.
    I’ve yet to hear someone use autism or adhd as creatively or derisively.

    Oh and we had a Beauty Pageant in Australia for the “Spastic Society” – which today sounds like social commentary.

  29. Aja says:

    Watch it Duffster, just because they use it on the Wire doesn’t mean you should go throwing it around.

  30. Iron Chic says:

    Did you watch her speech at the Teaparty convention?
    I don’t even know where to begin but I am worried for America right now.

    I saw a sign somewhere that read “Teabagging for Jesus.”
    haha…what rock have these freaks been hiding under?
    And when will one of them just come out and say “we hate that our president is black.” That is what it all “boils” (pun) down to.

    I’m so glad the Canadian Prime Minister is a non-controversial bland piece of boiled asparagus.

  31. Juri says:

    That black communist is not their President. The teabaggers are faithfully waiting for Ronald Reagan to come back from Heaven.

    Palin’s crib notes at the convention were priceless!!

  32. hammie says:

    I’ve changed my mind. I’m not going to say Retard anymore because it hurts people I care about.
    Yes Sarah Palin is a cunt, yes the enemy of my friend is my enemy (or something)

    There are plenty of other really good insults that could be applied. I have a list if you need it. xx

  33. Yuri Norstein says:

    What a lame worthless site. Derisive, divisive and derivative. Nothing original. Nothing except a display of low intelligence.
    And woefully out of date.
    Hey, you self-absorbed twit! Ever bother to update any of your crap?

  34. Sister Wolf says:

    Oh, kiss my ass. If you don’t like it here, begone with you and don’t come back.

  35. Dj says:

    Wtf Yuri Norstein!
