Governor Palin posted the following statement to Facebook:
Bill Maher is free to attack me, but not my child, nor other innocent, beautiful people. And I’m not a Word Policeman, but when President Obama mocked people with special needs who participate in the Special Olympics, his words cut through the heart and reminded me how powerful mocking words are when aimed at the innocent.
– Sarah Palin
She included the following video which suggests that the “R” word has no place in discourse, regardless if it’s coming from Bill Maher, or Ann Coulter.
