Gov. Sarah Palin just released a statement on President Barack Obama's gaffe about the Special Olympics last night on the Tonight Show.
"I was shocked to learn of the comment made by President Obama about Special Olympics," said Palin, whose son, Trig, was born with Down syndrome last year. "This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world."
"These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will. By the way, these athletes can outperform many of us and we should be proud of them," Palin added. "I hope President Obama’s comments do not reflect how he truly feels about the special needs community."
Yeah, right. At least he apologized and took responsibility for his remark.
We have never heard Sarah Palin take any responsibility for anything at all.
Ah, and she's a champion of children with special needs!
Sarah Palin has just turned down $74 million dollars that could have been used to improve the education of children with special needs and of those in impoverished areas.
