UPDATE: Emanuel has apologized, but cleverly, he's only apologized to the people who are demeaned by "retarded," not the idiot Democrats he was berating. I still think he barks and barks but his time with Obama so far really bites, but I did like this outcome.Sarah Palin is so offended by Rahm Emanuel's well-known penchant for swearing and for his allegedly having used the word "retarded" (which she considers the same as the N-word) that she's calling for him to be fired. Emanuel could call for her to resign except she already did.
If "retarded" is as bad as the N-word, shouldn't we be calling it the R-word?
Even more interestingly, she seems to be inviting a revisitation of Levi Johnston's accusation that she once jokingly referred to her own child—who is the unspoken prop in her Emanuel war—as "my little retarded baby."
Then there was that rumor that Palin once said of Barack Obama clenching the Democratic nomination, "So Sambo beat the bitch?"
Oh, Sarah. Emanuel should be forced out of his position, but not for having a potty mouth.
