Special Olympics Statement
We at Special Olympics are astounded and appalled by a political flyer being distributed in Tennessee, showing the head of President Bush superimposed on the body of a Special Olympics athlete, saying, "Even if you win, you're still retarded."
We cringe at the thought that any one of these capable and courageous athletes would ever have to endure the agony, embarrassment, pain and suffering that this flyer would certainly cause.
Sadly, this type of ignorance and bigotry is not uncommon. Comedians in the United States regularly mock people with intellectual disabilities; a common playground taunt even today is “retard”; people with intellectual disability remain the last to be respected or included in our schools, health care institutions, and society at large.

If I even hear Limbaugh or a Limbaugh fan complain about this, I swear to God my head will explode.

I actually giggled a little bit when I read this. Obama FTW! Just don't let him get on your bowling team. I bet if this had never never been reported to the media or said on TV then this would effect absolutely zero people. Everyday Americans would go on with their life and it would be as if it never happened. But wait! ZOMGWTFBBQ! THIS IS A BIG DEAL HURRRRRR!
