What If Karl Rove Called Something “F#@&%*&# Retarded”?

 Bookmark and Share    Liberals are annoyed again at Sarah Palin. Once again, she is sticking up for handicapped people. She just can’t “act like a lady” and let them be maligned, can she?

Along with Sarah, several advocacy groups are jumping on a remark made by President Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rham Emanuel. The remark was said in a meeting of White House and DNC Strategist regarding the suggestion that Demoicrats run ads against Blue Dog, conservative Democrats who did not jump aboard the government healthcare takeover scheme.

To it, Rhambo, as he is often called for his aggressive and sometimes ruthless political decisions, said the idea was F&*$!@% retarded.

The truth is, the idea is f’ing retarded. But the negative context the word retarded was use in has many advocates of the mentally handicapped up in arms. Personally I think they are being too sensitive. But I will say this, I do hope they hold Rham Emanuel accountable because what if George had called an idea F&%$*@! retarded. The left would have been calling for his impeachment or at least his lynching.

The remark was said in private and it was not meant to denigrate mentally handicapped people. It was also not meant to go public. So even though it may have been privately insensitive, I do not think the episode warrants congressional hearings. But I do think the application of the liberal double standard has to stop. For that reason, Rham Emanuel and the Administration should be pressed just as hard for that which they would deem as politically incorrect and insensitive remarks, as they would had it been Karl Rove who said such a thing.

In the meantime, the really sad part of this is the fact that so many fronts are bothered by the President’s Chief of Staff using the word “retarded” but we have heard nothing about his use of the word f#@$%.

  1. Oh,,,,so It is alright for partisan attacks when they are from the hypocritical left, with their double standards, but when a Republican, which is a name one takes when they are partial to one ideology over another and therefore partisan, exhibits partisanship, that is bad. And by the way, how come those on the left do not oppose their own partisanship? Why do they peach “bipartisanship” but never practice it?

    As for Sarah Palin, of the entertainer, Rush Limbaugh and his use of the word she stated, “crude and demeaning name calling at the expense of others is disrespectful.”

    It is important to note that Rush Limbaugh is not helping the President of the United States set the tone and policy direction of the nation. Rham Emanuel is. Rush Limbaugh is not working for you or me, Rham Emanuel is. There is a biig difference. But in any case, since Sarah Palin did make her objection to Limbaugh’s comments, I guess now you owe Sarah Palin an apology…….unless of course your inherent liberal hypocrisy and partisanship prohibits you from such decent protocal.

  2. Hey Kevin, are you slow? The whole point is, that the left wants to hold Limbaugh accountable to pc laws but they make excuses for those on the left who brake the same pc laws…..like you did. Perhaps the word in question here applies to you? The hypocrisy of the left certtainly does.

    big deal… the kid is retarded. look up the definition of the word: under:developed. not fully developed

  4. The question is, will Palin call Limbaugh is his recent use of the term “retards”. If Rahm is taken to task over this…so should Rush.

    Otherwise, this is just a partisan attack…
