Sarah Palin released this little gem after Obama's gaffe about his bowling like someone from the "Special Olympics"
She says--“I was shocked to learn of the comment made by President Obama about Special Olympics. This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world. These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will. By the way, these athletes can outperform many of us and we should be proud of them.
I hope President Obama’s comments do not reflect how he truly feels about the special-needs community.”
Apparently the conservatives are getting their own back, using the liberal weapons...a friend of my wife's, a right-winger who believes Obama is Hitler, has contacted her company's Human Resources division because an obese, African American salesgirl was promoted to buyer.
This woman feels that Caucasian employees are being discriminated against, and besides, fat women shouldn't be allowed to choose what clothes customers should choose from!
What's so sad about this is the conservatives are the non-complainers, say what you like and don't get blamed for it. It's all about individual effort.
Apparently not--you'd think a woman like the moose-killing Palin would,despite having a Downs Syndrome child, would realize that people say stupid things like "I bowled like a Special Olympian."
Ronald Reagan's wife once said, "It's so nice to see so many white people here" at a Chicago gathering, and apologized for that...now Obama had to apologize to Nancy Reagan for another inappropriate remark..
Truthfully, Obama is not a funny guy. He shouldn't make jokes, probably. But don't you just love the right wing running to tattle?
