    but I bet they make fun of the fact he was a cripple.

    "Would you really trust a cripple? We all know he just used Social Security to supply his cripple-habits such as: wheel-chairs, canes, and twizzlers.

    George W. Bush: A true, non-crippled leader."

      ex:  but I'll bet they make fun of the fact that he had a disability/used a wheelchair

      I also have a disability, but I am a person, not a disability.

      Others who have disabilities are people too.  Look past the disability and at the person.

      Thank you.

      •  You do realize. (none)
        That it was a satire aimed at the right, where nothing is sacred. I by no means meant to offend anyone, and completely agree with you. I'm just letting off some steam after work aimed at the right, that's all.

        •  Understand. But, (none)
          what I am saying is for us to concentrate on the use of the language/terminology and focus on the person, not the fact that he/she may have a disability. (That's just a pet peeve of mine.)

            in that context, that's the very kind of language that must be used; he's talking about what the right wingers would say.

            If you were doing a satirical representation of the KKK, would you have them talking about "African-Americans," or "People of Color?" No - I think you'd have them using the N-word.

            my weblog and my website - they're, uh, in progress, OK?
