Republicans Hate The Disabled

I am not making this up. Former US Surgeon General Richard Carmona, in testimony before Congress, said that his activities were interfered with by Bush political appointees pursuing a political agenda to the point that, "he was prevented from attending a Special Olympics event to talk about health and disabilities."

He said, "I was told I would be helping a politically prominent family, [and] why would I want to help those people?"

Yes, it's true. Because Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of Edward Kennedy, founded the Special Olympics, the Bush regime has apparently decided, politically, that supporting it wouldn't be supporting the disabled, it would be supporting Democrats. Yeah. Because everyone knows a Kennedy founded the goddamned Special Olympics. Oh, wait, nobody does. I didn't. Not until today.

Don't forget that these assholes are the ones out claiming that the Democrats want to stop the calamitous war in Iraq solely for political reasons. Even if this accusation were true, and I'm sure that for some Democrats it is and for some it isn't, it still isn't at all as low as boycotting the fucking Special Olympics because of politics. Jesus H. Christ on a popsicle stick, man.

Not to mention that complaining that the Democrats wanting to stop the politically-motivated Iraq war for political reasons is pretty goddamned ironic. Hello pot, this is the kettle...'re black!
