    Recenlty, White Chief Hours of staff Rahm Emanuel, known as Obama's right hand man, came out and called a group of liberal activists f-ing retarded.

    So my question is, does this include himself?

    It's convention to source your paraphrased quotes in the Debates forum. It's also quite clear that it's your question, since it's in your post which opens your thread.

    I think Palin is trying to turn the Alinsky rule, i.e. "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." against Rahmbo. While that is somewhat amusing, I think the whole thing is stupid.

    I thought Obama was funny on that clip.

    Then again, I thought that Hillary's line about Gahndi was funny too.

    But, of course, she got lambasted for it.

    Politicians just aren't allowed to be funny any more.

    Or Something.

    Its just a light hearted thread about liberal political incorrectness. In fact, I wonder how Harry Reid would refer to Rahm? These guys just crack me up.

    In all seriousnes, however, those who suffer from various mental challenges are outraged by the word retard being used by Rahm. Could you just imagine yourself being mentally challenged and being compared to those who are brain dead? At least the one who suffers from mental challenges has some synaptic ability. This is an outrage!!!


    Of course, to be fair, Rahm apologized to the Special Olympics. I just wonder if we wil hear any talk of resignation like we did Harry Reid and his comments. Probably not.

    As the article indicates, Rahm is known for his profanity and a loose tongue. It just makes me wonder why it took so long for a story like this to break.

    He's not left enough to be a liberal. He's nowhere close to being a marxist.

    I'd almost call him a republican. After all, when he wants to get something done he only attacks the liberals.

    You never see him calling republicans retards do you? Nope. He only calls liberals retards.

    Yeah, a centrist cleverly disguised as a liberal, he he. There's a lot right wing claims of leftism on the parts of some, which puzzles those of us that ARE on the left. Emanuel is just another centrist.

    Well now we have Rahm being a Republican and a centrist. How so? What policies indicate this or is it just the fact he calls liberals like you retarded?

    So are there any liberals, or anyone else for that matter, who is offended by Rahms use of the word retard?

    Only Sarah Palin I think. She called for him to be fired because of it.
