HBO's Bill Maher said something in his latest show and it ticks me off that he said it... I just went onto his website and got the transcript of what he exactly said...

"Honestly, maybe the reason they haven’t attacked us again is they figure we’re already suffering enough. [laughter] No, it pains me to say these things because I know, deep down, George Bush has something extra. A chromosome. [laughter] [applause] Wait, wait, wait. You see, wait. I did that on purpose. Was it cruel? Maybe. But it saved lives, dammit! [laughter] Because by doing the “extra chromosome” joke, I sent a message to a young Muslim somewhere in the world who is on a slow-burn about this country, and perhaps got him to think, “Huh, maybe the people of America aren’t so bad. Maybe it’s just that rodeo clown who leads them.” [laughter] [applause] [cheers] “Maybe the people get it!” We do, Ahmed, we do!! [laughter] [applause]"

I never have anything related to politics on my blog, I choose to stay quiet about that subject but this really upsets me. Whether your a republican or democrat, for the war or againist it, it doesn't matter. What he said is very innappropraite.

Like Patrick just said, "I knew he was an a-hole but not that big of one". I also agree with something that All 4 My Gals said too, "Again, why in the world do comedians think it's okay to make fun of our disabled citizens?"

I just read your profile to the right on the sidebar.

Our grandson has Down's. He was not supposed to live beyond the age of 5 and he's now 17 (and I also read about Chris Burke, from the days of TV show "Life Goes On"...he's now 41!!!)

Bless little Joey.
