    It All Started earlier this month when Emanuel used the R word and then Pallin and Many other GOPers called for him to step down then not to long ago Limbaugh Calls the Dem's FN ___ "fill in the blank" and everyone including Pallin calls it "Satire" then Recently on family guy they had a quick pallin refrencehttp://current.com/items/92154298_palins-respond-to-family-guy-another-kick-in-the-gut.htm Which both Palin and her daughter respond to using the word, calling it c Hartless etc, So then Last night Pallin was on Oriley last night and had this to say.

    No, it's not Politically Correct for you to say that. Don't worry, you are not PC.


    When I've heard 'R word', I thought they meant redneck. I didn't know why Palin would say something so stupid. Wait... :D

    I guess the 'R' word is said by "liberal" on "liberals" = requesting {firings on said liberal who said it} by Republicans ...

    But if Republicans say the 'R' word on liberals etc then its {satire} but its no requesting {firings} of Republicans by Republicans ... :rolleyes: :confused:

    I agree. Total double standard. (what retards) ;)

    IMO, she shouldn't bother to speak out against a comedy (Family Guy) that thrives on deliberate "tongue-in-cheek" humor. Seth McFarlane is loving this! Palin, as a politician shouldn't lower her self to the level of an irreverent comedian. Where's her integrity?

    BTW, Original Poster: Palin's with 1 L.

    On a serious note, I'm sick of hearing about this woman, she's pathetic.

    I never thought I'd say this--in Palin there exists a bigger loser than Dan Quayle. When you hit rock bottom why rent a jack hammer?

    He's been airing new episodes this week? I know he taped one from Vancouver, but so far I've only seen him in an interview on NBC...

    After watching that clip I have an odd feeling someone told her to say that Rush's use was satire and she really has no clue what the word actually means...

    It's been extremely amusing watching the right -- who for decades has decried 'pantywaist' liberal effetes attempts to 'impose their PC standards' on language -- suddenly deciding that political correctness in language is something THEY are suddenly for!

    Ha ha ha!

    I thought I remembered getting bitched at by one of the liberal crowds for arguing for the use of "retard" and a few other word choices that have nothing to do with the actual group of people.

    I have to say that as much as I wish Palin were not a figure in American politics, I agree with her outrage at the use of the word 'retard'/'retarded.' The word is or has been used as a form of abuse towards mentally disabled people and really doesn't, in my opinion, have a place in public discourse. People are sensitive(ish) about racial epithets these days, but are clearly not quite so sensitive about disabled people. Even Obama made that comment about the 'special Olympics.'

    I don't think Rahm Emanuel (was he a porn star in a previous life? what a name) needs to lose his job over it, however. I also wish that I didn't have this feeling that Palin's outrage is 90% manufactured.

    Even more hypocrisy from Sarah Palin.

    VA Lawmaker: Disabled kids are god's vengeance for abortion

    Crickets from the Palin camp. This schmuck has said that Trig is god's punishment for Sarah having an abortion. You'd think she would want to condemn it, but no. I bet if it was a Democrat who said it, she'd be all over it.

    I guess the "only" people to use that phrase is Republican / Conservative ... If Democrats use that word then its {evil} / dirty / fire-able Offense ....
