What do you think of Sarah Palin defending Rush Limbaugh's use of the word Retard?

I was almost about to admire her for taking a unilateral stand in defending children with intellectual disabilities, but now she has kissed Rush Limbaugh's ring, and said it was okay since it was 'satire.'
Does anyone think this is somehow okay?

  • while I find her to be an imbecile, I do have to say kudos to her for being able to take things for what they are and not be offended by satire.

  • Her defense didn't make sense since she issued a statement yesterday saying she was upset with his use of the word too...now back pedal..it's OK!! lol


    Kind of like when Michael Steele called Rush a name and apologized teh very next day


    I'm starting to think Rush has sex tapes or naked photo's he threatents release if they don't back off him!

    Ummmmmm truealaskanmom.......I seem to recall a very huge big deal happening when David Letterman made a "joke" about Palin's daughter. She didn't seem to have a sense of humor then when it really was just a joke.

    What I am tired of is hearing about her day after day.....she needs to go back home and take care of her children.
