Haven't seen any context of how Rush used it, so not understanding the connection. If this is a word he uses randomly for fun, then I can sort of see what this is all about. If he was using it satirically, as is usually the case right after some major Democrat gets outed for saying something stupid, then this sounds like liberals taking things out of context once again.

He called the same people that Emauel called retards. And even if he was playing around why does that matter if its so horrible to use? You think I can say the n-word on here and just say I was playing around?

She is a big hyopcrite. I also saw a tape of Beck using the retard word on his show back in January several times.

Also Gov. Perry's aide used it just recently in much the same way (calling something retarded he disagreed with). She issued a rebuke, but didn't ask that he be fired. Dennis Miller uses it all the time as well. It is in poor taste no matter how you use it, but most anyone if they are honest as used it in similar terms. "That is retarded" is different that calling someone a retard.

And Gov. Perry's aide? She is campaigning for him so I guess that is what makes it different.

No, Rahm and Rush.


Rush makes millions from saying things like that (out of context or not), while Rahm is a high ranking government official that SHOULD be held to a higher standard.


That is the difference.

Palin needs to STFU. She is constantly hurting the Republicans.

Can anyone name someone that has never called someone/something retarded before? I understand its not exactly seemly, and it's not part of my go to "fuck that" collection, but I'm sure I've used the word a handful of times without thinking.

Now, I know a lot people, especially those with special needs family members, are offended by it, so it's probably not a word you want to sprinkle in your speeches. But man, get over it. At some point this entire crisis just becomes... Well you get the point.
