My whole thing here is, is that I realize people slip up, say things that they shouldn't have and of course he didn't mean it to be mean, or so he thought- sound familiar?? Why couldn't he say something like "Yes, I bowl like a 3 year old"- I realize this is not that funny (but we all know most 3 years olds can't bowl yet- you get my point) and he was on Jay Leno but who in the world picks on the Special Olympics?? If you do, you're just plain mean! And I've always felt this way so this isn't all because of Bennett. I've never understood why on earth anyone would make fun of the "short bus" or Special Olympians or anyone with a disability. Do you think these people asked to be disabled?? Picking on someone that has unconditional love and would never make fun of someone else? Why would you make fun of someone for something they can't help or control?? This is just common sense I think, really nothing my parents taught me (although they taught me and raised me well!:))
He better apologize without a teleprompter and him alone, not one of his staffers!
For what it's worth, if Bush said it I would react the same way, but he didn't.
There, I'm done.
