    I'm not insulting children, and frankly, if you want to show me one female who has control over her genetic structure to the point where she can pick and choose the mental aptitude of her kid from conception, then i'll concede that said mothers are being insulted.

    Till then, no.
    Um maybe it had something to do with the fact that you were calling the special needs baby a "retard?" If you had apologized it would have been one thing, but you didn't, you kept saying it over and over. To me that's the mark of an immature person.

    I guess we'll have to just agree to disagree on this issue.

    I listened to the whole thing. I didn't want to but you have to know what you are arguing against. It was a good speech, but I doubt she even knew what she was talking about unless it was about her family. I really don't care about all the gossip in her family etc. I am worried if McCain is elected and drops dead, she doesn't have the intelligence, savvy, or experience to take over. No matter how many good speeches are written for her, nothing trumps her lack of experience.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    She is the first one to actually have a shot at winning. Geraldine never had a chance in '84.

    While retard may not be used as one of the lighest terms, especially among kids these days, it is still an official medical term. Sorry, but people can't keep being politically correct and sugar coat it by saying 'special needs' all the time. Sorry, but the kid's retarded. He has downs syndrome, a disease that's just a LITTLE bit more than a special need.

    I couldn't listen or watch. I think she may be the devil and I can't bring myself to watch this. I have talked to a lot of people today and almost all of them, even the ones I respect, said they think she is wonderful. I couldn't believe it. I am scared for our country.

    You should probably re-evaluate your respect for them.

    I wasn't impressed by Palin's speech. But since she looks like Tina Fey it's hard to take her seriously anyway. I loved how she kept taking swats at Obama, considering that this time last week most of the country didn't even know she existed.

    And pimping out her kids was a nice touch. Although I did laugh when her husband just dumped the baby off in one of the kids lap.

    My boss said the same thing when we were all watching Palin's speech at work. That accent was killing me.

    Because those mentally challenged cannot speak up for themselves like other groups. I know many "retards" who show more humanity than most. Alas, I get off topic....carry on.

    It doesn't work that way. You can't just click 'report' and it'll automatically give said member an infraction. There can be rejection, and it has to be a legit reason to be reported for.

    Thanks for the definition (and I'm well aware mental retardation can be used in a valid way depending on the context)- but it has a lot more to do with the way in which it was said (in a joking, derogatory manner) than the word itself. Most people can discuss politics without resorting to mocking mentally challenged babies. I mean let's be honest, Palin's qualifications can be ripped apart on their own without all these attacks on her family.
