Ann Coulter's "retard" comment
« on: October 25, 2012, 08:18:20 AM »
Disgusting, of course (and very strange, given Obama's reputation as a "wimpy intellectual" among his detractors). And a Special Olympian has responded, eloquently and more kindly than that, er, individual deserves:

Not only is this a gross insult against people living with a disability, it is also the kind of taunt one expects of bullying seven-year-olds. Oh well.

I really, really dislike Ann Coulter. I think she's one of the worse people on the planet, along with idiots like Rush Limbaugh and the like. Ugh. Unfortunately, it seems the more outrageously stupid you are, the more folks gravitate to them. Ann Coulter is a best-selling author, believe it or not. And Rush Limbaugh has millions of listeners.  ::)

Damn. As bad as Ann Coulter is, then there's Richard Mourdock saying something totally fucked up about God and rape. I don't want to comment further as I think my head will explode.  :mad2
