Rahm Emanuel's remark this week about certain congressional Democrats has left me wondering. Yes, I'm a bit slow on the uptake. It's the weekend and this is officially old news, but it's increasingly difficult to tell if the news out of Washington is real or imaginary. Does it really warrant a click? What moron Republican could possibly take offense at calling a bunch of Democrats retarded? Had he referred to them as intellectually challenged or mentally disabled, would these same Republicans be equally incensed that he had likened the retarded to politicians? Can't we just call each othere liars like we used to and be done with it?
