Sarah Palin Goes Spastic

by | 25th, March 2009

DID you hear the one about Obama and the Special Olympics. Ha! Ha! The Obama sure in funny. But he’s not the funniest person Michelle Obama knows. Her mother is one “the funniest person I know”.

Hey, old ma-bama’s older than Spazbama’s bowling average. Now that’s pretty, pretty, pretty funny.

You want to know what else is funny? This post – it’s Sarah Palin’s not-the-full-ten-pins boy:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who has a child with Down Syndrome, today blasted President Obama’s attempt at a joke which insulted people with special needs.

Quite right, too:

Said Palin: “I was shocked to learn of the comment made by President Obama about Special Olympics. This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world.”

This comes on the same day that Palin refused to accept over 30% of the federal economic stimulus money being offered to Alaska. According to the Anchorage Daily News, “the biggest single chunk of money Palin is turning down is about $170 million for education, including money that would go for programs to help… special needs students.”

Jim Treacher:

See, this is “ironic” because the government is the only entity that can help anybody. If you take a stand against unrestrained government spending, you’re not allowed to be offended by a slur against people like your own son. Made by the President of the United States. On the Tonight Show. Because by trying to impede the government from throwing around a whole bunch of taxpayers’ money, by standing on principle, you’re actually hurting your own child.

Spare a thought for Trig… Geddit?! Spare. Bowling. Dur!

Going Spazmo 4 Obama!
