Way to go, Sarah. My brother-in-law has downs, and I find the word offensive, too. Keep up the good work, but please, don't run for president.

The great man has really surrounded himself with class acts. I read on Drudge there was an F-BOMB in front of the Retarded part. Can't we report the entire truthful story?

"Rahm called Tim Shriver Wednesday to apologize and the apology was accepted,"

Then I would imagine tearful hugs were exchanged. Barf Barf Barf. Welcome to the United States of America, where everyone is offended all the time by everything.

If Rahm worked in the private sector, his constant use of the "f bomb" would have gotten him fired a long time ago, if not sued for harassment.

A great glaring example of the false, sanctimonious, two-faced fakery of liberalism and this administration. Now both he and Obama have made a indecent comment about the mentally challenged. Sickening phony jerks.

Rahm Emanual was trouble during the Clinton administration as well. For one thing, he can't keep his fat mouth shut and tells the media confidential things he shouldn't be discussing. He can't be trusted. Now maybe he was already lectured to straighten up his act, but here he saying inappropriate things. For his age, he's very immature.

One might assume that Emanuel was a Republican if not for the fact that he is part of a liberal White House.

Hey Emanual, Pot, meet kettle.

And the infighting continues.

I have to admit that it would be good entertainment if it weren't for the dire straights we are in as a country.

And his apology distracts from the fact that he made the statement to begin with. Go with his original statement folks......that's what they're all about.

Our country has gone from the theory of "sticks and stones" to the theory of "I have a RIGHT to be offended". Truly a sad state of affairs.
