(User Submitted) – Is it time for "mama grizzly" Sarah Palin to maul yet another user of her hated R-bomb? This time it was conservative pundit Ann Coulter in a tweet: "Great video: head of GOProud interviewed by retarded person on MSNBC." That "retarded person" is MSNBC host Cenk Uygur, who questioned the conservative credentials of Christopher Barron, a member of the Republican gay rights group.

Coulter's less-than-PC tweet creates an awkward situation for fellow Republican Palin, who called for Rahm Emanuel to be fired after he called a group of people "f*cking retards" last year. Rush Limbaugh also used the word, which the Huffington Post notes, "earned him a (much less passionate) rebuke" from Palin.
