So, I come back from a week’s vacation in Mexico. And what’s the first thing I see? Sarah Palin’s still whining about comments made about the mentally disabled.
Give me a freaking break. Who died and left her Head of the Language Police?
First, it was Rahm Emanuel – who should be fired, she said, for using the phrase “f–ing retarded.”
But, of course, it’s OK for Rush Limbaugh to call people “retards.” Because, you see, Rush is a Republican and Rahm is a Democrat.
Now Sarah’s on the warpath against the TV show “Family Guy” because one of the characters, a woman with Down’s Syndrome – played by actress Andrea Fay Friedman, who actually has Down’s Syndrome – tells her date: “My father’s an accountant, and my mom’s the former governor of Alaska.”
Palin’s condemned that innocent remark as an attack on her son, Trig.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of being preached to by Sarah Palin. But I’ll make a deal with her.
I will never again utter the word “retarded” – as long as she agrees to stop exploiting her son for political gain – which she’s done non-stop since the day John McCain named her his vice-presidential running mate.
That’s my parting shot for today.
