    I guess it's O.K. if Rush uses the term though.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    Well, it's one of those cases where you're allowed to use the slur if you're part of the group.

    "But the former governor went to great and sometimes awkward lengths to insist that when conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh used the same exact term to describe the same exact group, it was simply in the role of political humorist. "They are kooks, so I agree with Rush Limbaugh," she said, when read a quote of Limbaugh calling liberal groups "retards." "Rush Limbaugh was using satire ... . I didn't hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with 'f-ing retards,' and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there.""

    She named her son Trig for Trisomy-g (Down syndrome). She has been exploiting the child since day one.
