And, Well, Retarded Republicans

posted by on March 20 at 14:32 PM

So, Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA.) has some recommendations for who should fill the spot of purged U.S. Attorney John McKay.

One is Interim U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Sullivan, who, during a judicial conference in the 1980’s when he was a Yakima County Prosecutor, used the racial slur “wetback” to describe undocumented immigrants

Sullivan also initiated a policy requiring rape victims to take lie-detector tests.

p.s. This all from a Democratic Party press release (with cites).

For FUCK'S SAKE, stop demeaning people with cognitive disabilities so you can take a shot at people you don't like.

I'm fed up with this biased-against-people-with- cognitive disabilities shit from the media. That's so gay.

Oh, wait. 'That's so gay' isn't an acceptable slang slur term, is it?

is "retarded" a headline requirement for you today?

I think it would have been worse if he called the Republicans cognitively disabled. That would have insulted the cognitively disabled.

Josh is 15 years behind in his politicaly correct lingo.

I agree with Mike @ #5, because like you point out, number dos, the cognitively disabled are not retarded.. Dave Reichert is.
