(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.

Am I the only person who thinks getting pissed off every time someone publicly uses the word "retard" is... oh I don't know.... retarded?

I for one would like to applaud Ann Coulter for her attempts to liberate the language from the shackles of political correctness. First she called John Edwards a 'fag' and, while it turns out she couldn't have been more wrong, we should applaud her courage in refusing to be restrained by silly PC considerations. Now she continues the good fight by throwing the word 'retard' around. I feel must hail her courage by following her brave example and saying that she is an ugly, anorexic, Fascist c*nt. See how great is is not to be the slightest bit concerned about using offensive language? Thank you Ann.
