    Default Sarah Palin wants Rahm Emanuel fired for calling liberals 'retarded'

    Dating back to the time he worked in the Clinton administration, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has developed an almost notorious reputation in Washington for being a brash personality with a penchant for profanity-laced diatribes. Conversely, his intense nature, in addition to his sharp mind, are what many attribute to his success and effectiveness as a Washington power player. But a remark he made recently in a closed-door meeting attended by White House aides and leaders of liberal special-interest groups has irked many, prompting him to issue an apology.
    Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Emanuel, exasperated upon learning that liberal special-interest groups were planning to run ads against conservative Democrats not supportive of health care reform, blasted the plan as "f------ retarded" over the summer. Naturally, some outrage ensued after Emanuel's words came to light, with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin taking to her Facebook page to call on President Obama to fire him for what she saw as the equivalent of a racial slur.

    Palin, whose son Trig is afflicted with Down syndrome, said she was informed of Emanuel's comment by a fellow parent of a special-needs child and pleaded with the president to "show decency" to the political process by "eliminating" the Chicago native from his inner circle.

    In a post titled "Are You Capable of Decency, Rahm Emanuel?," Palin wrote, "Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the 'N-word' or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities — and the people who love them — is unacceptable," adding, "it's heartbreaking."

    In response to the outrage expressed by Palin and others, Politico reported today that an administration official informed them that Emanuel had already reached out to Special Olympics chairman and CEO Tim Shriver, who recently launched a campaign to end the use of "the R word."

    "Rahm called Tim Shriver Wednesday to apologize and the apology was accepted," the unnamed official said.

    It should be noted that Emanuel, who is rumored to have once mailed a dead fish to a former coworker he disliked, has not offered any apology to the liberals his slur was aimed at, and it's highly doubtful that he ever will.
    Obama chief of staff’s 'retarded' insult brings fallout, Palin criticism
    More of Palin's fake outrage to keep herself relevant. This is David Letterman all over again. Rahm was wrong and he apologized.

    And considering what Palin's father said about her own views of minorities in Hawaii she's the LAST person who should be bringing up decency or racial slurs.

    Yes, Sarah, Rahm definitely had your son in mind when he made that remark. Now, back under your rock.

    He was definitely wrong for using that word, but considering that he apologised, asking for him to be fired is beyond excessive.

    Also, I had to fight the urge to disagree with her just to be contrary. And like considering she's a misogynist and a racist, she's the last person to be lecturing people on sensitivity.

    Shouldn't she be a little more worried about blatently and obviously money laundering her PAC donations into her own income?

    I would say the timing of this ghostwritten FB post is a FAIL of epic proportions to take the attention off her grifting.

    All of Sarah's screws popped out a long time ago.

    Sorry but I have a problem with people getting all in an uproar over this. It is different if you call a person a retard as in insult. In this case he stated their plan was "fucking retarded." That use is correct.

    re⋅tard  /rɪˈtɑrd, for 1–3, 5; ˈritɑrd for 4/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [ri-tahrd, for 1–3, 5; ree-tahrd for 4] Show IPA

    –verb (used with object) 1. to make slow; delay the development or progress of (an action, process, etc.); hinder or impede.

    –verb (used without object) 2. to be delayed.

    –noun 3. a slowing down, diminution, or hindrance, as in a machine.
    4. Slang: Disparaging. a. a mentally retarded person.
    b. a person who is stupid, obtuse, or ineffective in some way: a hopeless social retard.

    Another fine example of Palin exploiting her kids. As I recall, she referred to this particular child as her little "retarded baby".

    So - STFU.
