Got something in the mailbag this morning taking me to task for my use of the term "retard" to describe Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia who evidently thinks outlawing cunnilingus is a good way to help the GOP gain the mainstream appeal it so desperately needs. "Years ago someone challenged me on my usage of the word and I'm glad they did." the letter says "Using retard as an insult is simply offensive and derogatory and to many people it makes you sound unintelligent or uncaring or both"
Then he goes in for the kill.
"In addition, I doubt many "retards" would appreciate being grouped with Mr. Cuccinelli."
A point to which I have no choice but to concede. To lump anyone in with this terminally obtuse simpleton is to do them the gravest of disservices. Point made and accepted.
Cuccinelli shall now be known as a numbnut.
