Last night at dinner I was reminded of the most recent controversy swirling around the Obama White House… You know, how Rahm Emanuel has a foul mouth. Oh wow. How amazing. This old news is in the news because Sarah Palin is all offended… so much so that she took it to her Facebook page. Gasp. You Go Girl. So here is the deal. SPalin is totally offended that Rahm Emanuel referred to liberal politicians who were not supporting the Obama health care plan as “Fucking retarded.”
So Spalin, the woman who called her own Down’s Syndrome child, the one she is now defending – along with those pesky liberal Dems she normally hates so much – yes, you guessed right: RETARDED.
Personally, I think that Sarah Palin is really dangerous – she has what has often been referred to as “retard strength” in terms of her public sway. I am not sure if it is to do with her innate abilities in this area, or if it is more of a statement towards the collective brain power of her constituents. Either way, they are sofa king re todd did. And today she is in the great state of Tennessee, telling the Tea Baggers that “America is ready for another Revolution.” Yes, this from the lady who keeps going on about being so sick of “talk talk talk” that she quit governing, wrote a book, went on TV, and gives speeches.
Emanuel is sort of known for his use of colorful language. And you know how I feel about the use of the “F-Word.” I think it is fan-fucking-tastic. But Lil’ ol’ Sarah, she sure is hurtin’ for certain. Funny, she didn’t seem so offended when Dick Cheney told Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont to “go fuck himself.” Anyhow, of course Emanuel apologized, because this is the sort of shit we need to be worried about:
Today Emanuel apologized for using the phrase. “The White House remains committed to addressing the concerns and needs of Americans living with disabilities,” says a White House aide, “and recognizes that derogatory remarks demean us all.”
It is assumed Emanuel stands by his use of the word “fucking.”
I thought the following comment with regard to the whole thing was pretty funny:
Does anyone understand that the words ‘profanity’ and ‘obscenity’ do not mean the same thing? It is another of the many shames of the current occupant of the White House that he can joke about teaching profanity to children. Profanity is not a joking matter.
Naturally ‘obscenity’ is great fun… and very suitable for children.
This post is relatively redundant in the vein of Sarah-Palin-Needs-to-GFH. But I feel better now. And here is a little Holy Fuck interlude to brighten your day.
