If Barack Fucks Up and Nobody Thinks About It, Does It Make a Sound?

With all the AIG mess, you may or may not have missed Barack making fun of the Special Olympics. Rather, making fun of himself by comparing his bowling ability to a Special Olympian.

There was some media scrutiny over this, but not much. Could you imagine the firestorm if George W. Bush or Sarah Palin had said something like that?

I'm not offended by Barack's comments. I don't get offended on other people's behalf. But I'm disturbed. I'm disturbed at this iconic civil rights figure who doesn't think homosexuals have the right to get married, and thinks disabled people are a joke.

I'm even more disturbed by a public and a media that can dismiss this as just a mistake, a slip of the tongue, just a joke.

I'm not trying to make too much of it. I don't think this makes Barack a bad President. His socialism makes him that. I don't even think this makes him a bad man. It would just be nice, in this volatile period of history, to have a public that questions its leaders instead of blindly worshiping them.
