What is it with Democrats, and the privilege of language that they assume? They say things that would never be allowed if uttered by an opponent. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel called progressive Democrats “retarded.” All over the nation, retarded Americans were insulted by the comparison.
This isn’t the first time the Democrats have insulted the mentally challenged. Remember, Barack Obama compared his bowling to the “Special Olympics” and Al Gore called Oliver North supporters “the extra-chromosome Right.”
Meanwhile Harry Reid continues to receive little criticism for mentioning Barack Obama’s “Negro” dialect. He was however corrected by Vice President Joe Biden, who pointed out that the politically correct term is “clean and articulate.”
