Rahm Emanuel's R-Wordgate Rocks Facebook, Blogs


White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel allegedly referred to liberals as “fucking retarded.” This caused great anguish to Sarah Palin, who noted that, “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.” (Palin herself has allegedly used “the R-word,” although she has denied it.) A chastened Emmanuel apologized to any R-words he may have offended for his unflattering comparison to liberals. And now everything’s okay again in America.
