    Of course you'll pretend he didn't say it.. He's a Liberal douche like yourself. Gotta stick together.

    I can't imagine why he would have a reason to refer to Trig Palin at all, much less as "retarded" (the allegation that he called him a 'retard' is unsupported by the Breitbart link) which is why I would like to see what he actually said.

    Fair enough. Innocent until proven guilty. But, here is an actual quote from 2011:

    “And when I point out that Sarah Palin is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a whiner, a professional victim, a scold, a know-it-all, a chiseler, a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a strange family of inbred weirdos straight out of ‘The Hills Have Eyes,’ that’s not sexist. I’m saying it because it’s true, not because it’s true of a woman.”
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywo...ing-Trig-Palin
    Now, in all fairness, he didn't use the word "retarded" there, but he did compare Palin and her family to a group of hideously mutated cannibals. Got anything to say about that?

    There seems to be no way to verify that he did this. A single blogger reported it, didn't even provide a qoute of it, just said he did it.

    I'm not saying Maher didn't, he's exactly the type of ass muncher who would, but the proof of it is anything but concrete.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Their is an awful lot of detail for Ron Futrell just to have made it up and Bill Maher or no one else has stepped up defending Bill Maher saying he didn't make the joke.
    The only place I can find where anyone thinks it may not have been said is here at conservative underground.

    I'm not familiar with the movie. I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm just not a big movie goer; the last time I went to the movies it was to see Hairspray The Musical in its first run.

    Sarah Palin's family is comical, and not because Trig is Downs, but because the whole aw shucks former beauty queen married to the fisherman and outdoorsman (or whatever he does) with the daughter who got pregnant at a most inopportune time for a family values candidate to a loser son in law who seemed destined to be making porn with Tonya Harding- I think I might have compared it to Northern Exposure and that also would not be a commentary on Trig's condition.

    It doesn't cost anything to wait for the recording or the transcript.

    All proof aside my opinion is that she should ignore people like this and not even acknowledge their existence.
    You lower yourself when you speak to them.

    So we get upset when people try to be too PC in today's America but get upset and want to raise Cain when someone throws a not-so-PC comment at the direction to a conservative family?

    This is America. Maher has that right. You don't have to like it.

    One more reason why Palin should ignore it and move on.

    This is something that bothers me about Obama, as president he is constantly mentioning detractors by name when he should be ignoring it and be above the fray.
