So the daily show asks what's worse - the N-Word, or the R-Word?
But there was time, not very long ago - when Palin had a completely different position on the "N-word"....
Many people may have forgotten in the face paced world of the corporate media, but not that many months ago Sarah Palin called for Rahm Emmanuel to be fired because he called some people (Democrats actually) Fucking Retarded.
In the Facebook posting entitled “Are You Capable of Decency, Rahm Emanuel?,” Palin called for his firing for comments attributed to him in a Jan. 26 Wall Street Journal article where he called plans by liberal groups to run ads against moderate Democrats "F—ing retarded."
“I would ask the president to show decency in this process by eliminating one member of that inner circle, Mr. Rahm Emanuel, and not allow Rahm’s continued indecent tactics to cloud efforts,” Palin said in the posting.
“Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the “N-word” or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking,” the post continued.
And does anyone remember when Sarah Palin came after David Letterman for a joke where he confused Sarah Palin adult daughter (who'd already had a child out of wed-lock, for her 15 year old daughter who hadn't - yet).
(CBS) On Monday's "Late Show with David Letterman," the comedian came out swinging, saying, "One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game. During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez!"
It turned out that many people took offense at the joke, especially the Alaska governor and former GOP vice presidential candidate and her family.
In a statement, she said, "Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is .. disgusting."
Than again, maybe she was really just mad at Letterman because of this...
(Nice Catch from Comments:) Remember when Rush Limbaugh used the "R-Word" and Palin said...
On Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel, she said his comments calling liberal groups "f-ing retards" was "indecent and insensitive" and cause for his dismissal.
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."
Colbert: Palin is a F-cking Retard!
Limbaugh is a satirist, but David Letterman isn't? Emmanuel should have been fired, but Dr. Laura is having her "Free Speech" attacked and should "Reload"?
Also do you remember when Franklin "Muslim Seed" Graham was disinvited to the Pentagon National Day of Prayer?
"It's truly a sad day when such a fine patriotic man, whose son is serving on his fourth deployment in Afghanistan to protect our freedom of speech and religion, is dis-invited from speaking at the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer service." Palin wrote on Facebook.
"In my years of knowing him, I've never found his tempered and biblically-based comments to be offensive - in fact his words have been encouraging and full of real hope."
"Are we really so hyper-politically correct that we can't abide a Christian minister who expresses his views on matters of faith?" Palin asked. "What a shame. Yes, things have changed."
Why was Graham disinvited? Because in the wake of 9/11 he said this...
Graham: Islam is a very evil and wicked religion,
Yeah, that's not appalling at all. That's not unacceptable. That's not something you should ever hear from a public figure as prominent as Billy Graham's Son. Yeah, we're just all so "politically correct" when someone says the religion of over a billion people is "wicked and evil".
Let's see now Palin was offended by Letterman, offended by Emmanuel, offended by the community center two blocks from Ground Zero which will include a Memorial to 9/11 open to all people of all faiths - but was NOT offended by Dr. Laura telling a black women she was being too oversensitive because her husband wouldn't defend or protect her as his friends and family demeaned her and used the N-word in her presence, not offended by Limbaugh calling Liberals "Kooks and Retards" and not offended by Graham calling every Muslim in the world "Wicked and Evil".
The woman is completely two-faced and her outrage is absolutely phony and purely calculated to do one thing - attack democrats and liberals, period.
Aren't you glad the she isn't our Vice President serving in John "Build the Dang Fence" McCain's Administration?
Unfortunately she is one of the scheduled speakers at this weekends Taking America Back to Hell Rally with Glenn Beck.
