You stay classy, Huffpo (updated)
This is beyond Palin Derangement Syndrom. It is just plain nauseating.
Headline from post at Huffpo by Erik Sean Nelson:
Palin Will Run In '12 On More Retardation Platform
Not surprisingly, it goes downhill from there:
In Sarah Palin's resignation announcement she complained about the treatment of her son Trig who always teaches her life lessons. She said that the "world needs more Trigs, not fewer." That's a presidential campaign promise we can all get behind. She will be the first politician to actually try to increase the population of retarded people. To me, it's kinda like saying the world needs more cancer patients because they teach us such personal lessons.
The quote above comes to us via Pundit and Pundette because Nelson was forced to remove the offending article. Hot Air has a screen grab if you want to read the whole thing. Just make sure you haven't eaten for a couple of hours before you do.
Nelson gives a bizarre explanation for taking the post down:
“No one was seeing the absurdity of Palin hiding behind her children, so my piece was not accomplishing anything good.”
What a bunch of baloney. When did "not accomplishing anything good" EVER stop a lefty from publishing something as sickening as this piece? And maybe "no one was seeing the absurdity" because they were too shocked that any civilized human being would make fun at the expense of a Downs Syndrome child. All he had to do was apologize and let it go at that. Instead, he pretends that he's too smart for the rest of us - we just can't comprehend his nuanced sense of humor. So not only is he a rat, he is an arrogant prick as well.
Nelson is a liar - and a very bad one at that. He crossed way over the line and knows it and was surprised when many of his lefty friends joined conservatives in condemning this filth. This makes Nelson a coward as well who runs away at the first sign of criticism from his friends.
I sincerely hope Ariana Huffington does the right thing and banishes this jerk from ever posting on her site again.
Update: George Joyce adds:
Thanks to an avalanche of immediate criticism from our friends over at Free Republic the Huffington Post has removed Nelson's pathetic and disgusting attempt at political humor. While the Huffington Post bills Nelson as someone who writes for "several comedy websites" their decision to post his offensive essay should have tremendous negative repercussions in the coming days and weeks.
The coming storm soon to engulf the Huffington Post will also stir up memories of President Obama's casual insult to Special Olympians on the Tonight Show back in March. Compassionate leftists, in other words, are about to have their cover blown.
The Huffington Post has crossed a very dangerous line by posting the Nelson essay. With Obama's poll numbers dropping and his foreign and domestic policies facing mounting criticism the last thing Obama needs right now is to be identified with his adolescent supporters over at the Huffington Post.
A final thought: the continuing liberal assault on Sarah Palin and her family will backfire with American voters. It will also make Sarah Palin as tough as nails in 2012.
