Coulter and the “R” word

25 Oct

After the foreign policy debate Ann Coulter tweeted her support for Romney being nice to “the retard” referring to Obama. Not only does this prove that women can be just as ignorant as men, it clearly shows the turn politics has taken in recent years. I can’t imagine anyone saying something like this about the President 10-15 years ago. She has gotten a lot of backlash for her comments from reporters, the Special Olympics, and parents of children with special needs.

 

As someone in a position to be a role model for young women, she did a very poor job at setting a positive example. It’s become common knowledge that using a word like that is completely inappropriate and someone in a position to show a strong, independent woman just threw all her respect out the window.
