Come on lainer and you ardent republicans, anything to say about her hypocrisy in demanding Rahm Emmanuel's resignation for using the word Retard, but when Rush Limbaugh does it in the exact same manner she defends and even explains why it's ok? It's the same thing. Sarah palin is a fucking retard.
I endorse that mans feeling

I listened to that Rush episode, he was using it as a satire on Rahm.... =/
I hate Palin as much as I do Obama, and have a love hate relationship with Rush (he gets me pissed off as many times as I agree with them), but do put credit where credit is due, Rush didn't do anything wrong, and I really could care less if Rahm said 'retard.' Palin is an idiot for giving a shit about Rahm saying retarded, and hypocritical for then noting that just because Rush used it in satire, its ok. Either its not ok, or its ok, it can't be both. IMO, its ok in both accounts. But then I'm also the person who tries to use the word 'nigg ardly' whenever I can just to screw with people. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controversies_about_the_word_%22dly%22)
But Rush said That it'd be a summit of retards. That's not really satire, he doesn't understand satire.
Trust me, you have no clue how his satire works, you gotta listen to him diligently to understand it. Hell, I love when he'll say that he's about to say something simply as a test to see if it'll be in the left wing news tomorrow, and how they'll twist it. Then he'll say it, then again state that its gonna be in the news, noting that he does it on purpose just to screw with the left. Sure enough, it'll be in the news the next day. He's just fucking with people, and imo, its funny shit.
I can't listen to him long enough to figure that out to be honest.
Then don't get pissed off when he's trolling. ;)
At least I know you are the kind of republican who is afraid of Palin's affect on the party too ( I hope)
I don't really like calling myself a republican, though I do vote for them simply because I would rather help a party that can win instead of a third party and just throw my vote away. Personally, I'd call myself a libertarian of the old school, classical literalistic movement, like von Mises, Hayek, Rothbard, etc, and ideally I love anarcho-capitalism, although I know it would never work in real life as it would eventually, by the aspects of the market, create a government, so it would be an unattainable dream.
If you want to refer to me as a republican, call me a Goldwater Republican, he was one of the last major republicans who fought to the death, literally, against the christian fundamentalist movement in that party.
