Why doesn't she want HIM fired too?

Sarah Palin called for Rahm Emmanuel to be fired a few days ago after he called a political strategy "f*cking retarded" back in August. He has since apologized for this remark. However, when Rush Limbaugh used the term on his radio show, calling Rahm’s meeting yesterday with advocates for the mentally handicapped a “retard summit at the White House" Palin called the remark "crude and demeaning" but didn't demand that Rush be fired. Why the double standard?

  • They have different standards on the other side. They have incredibly thin skins and she plays perpetual victim.

    This was all a big diversion because she did not pay property taxes in AK.

  • If Rush was going to be fired, he would have been fired a long time ago. I think they both should have to chew on a bar of soap, personally.

  • Rahm Emanuel is public employee of the American People (we're technically all his boss).

    Rush Limbaugh is not.

    Both were insensitive, but only one is our employee.

  • One is in politics, the other is in entertainment.

    One is supposed to represent the American people. The other is supposed to be controversial in order to boost ratings.

  • The political "our employee" said it in PRIVATE, the ignoramous said it MULTIPLE times on the airways. He is a pig who also make some ignorant statements about women....I don't understand why people haven't written to the radio stations in their area to complain and get him off the air.

  • He was quoting Emanuel and paraphrasing. He was very redundant, maybe he should appologize for that.

  • You seriously have to ask this question? Ohhh my. Rush wasn't APPOINTED by the President of the United States. See, he's a radio talk show host. It's a FREE market.  Don't like him?  Don't listen to him.  Rush wasn't put into his job by a man 53% of American's voted for.THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.OMG, I can't believe you asked this question...

  • Because she needs the support of the moronic that believe in Rush.

    Pull your panties out of your butt, Rahm won't denounce Olbermann for the same reason.
