Ann Coulter's use of the 'r-word' criticized
She's not bad looking for a lady in her 50s
Parents of children with special needs are demanding an apology from conservative political pundit Ann Coulter for tweeting after Tuesday's foreign policy debate that she approved of "Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard [Obama]."
It appeared to be a response to critiques of Mitt Romney's debate performance, but it wasn't the first time Coulter used the "the r-word" during this election season. And, it's not the first time blogger Ellen Seidman has called her out on it.
"At this point, I'm thinking the woman must surely be aware that the word is offensive, and she chooses not to care. That's pretty vile and heartless," said Seidman, the mother of a special needs child who shares her world on the blog "Love that Max."
Still, the comment was favorited 1,215 times and earned 2,993 retweets as of this writing, presumably by a number of people who didn't find it offensive.
Obama's views are VERY retarded from a conservative viewpoint. He is still fighting the old Marxist class wars. The Soviet experiment showed where that leads.
My comment above attached to the pic was of course designed to arouse ire from the boiler-suited brigade. The fact that it true probably makes it even more "offensive"
