More silliness from Sarah

So, Sarah Palin wants President Obama to fire his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, for saying that attacks ads against the Democratic health care plan are "f--king retarded."

First of all, I doubt Obama is taking advice about high-level staffing from Sarah Palin.

More importantly, though, if every political figure in Washington is going to be fired for using bad words and saying offensive things, then our nation's capital will be an awfullly empty place.

And P.S. to Palin: Stop trying to score political points off your baby son having Down syndrome - the basis for your faux anger over Emanuel using the word "retarded" - especially when you know full well that the comment had nothing do to with people who have developmental disabilities. It makes you sound like an ever bigger idiot than you are.
