Do have a link to what Maher supposedly said. In other words, do we have ANY proof that Maher made an offensive comment?!!!

Sarah Palin rips Bill Maher on Trig comment (Maher allegedly called Trig "retarded") - Democratic Underground
You should at least read the headlines in your links, really.

Sarah Palin rips Bill Maher on Trig comment (Maher allegedly called Trig "retarded")
Bold added to assist some posters.

As I said in my last post, this was discussed in the first several pages.
Yes, Futrell said he didn't remember what was said.

Try again?

Some people are challenged to differentiate between some and all. It's a cognitive thing.

ok.


According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a former local television host and “outspoken conservative” Ron Futrell said that during the live show that Maher described Palin’s son, who has Down syndrome, as “retarded.”

So this is all a big pfft! Futrell, who is a far-right blogger, could have made this all up, since it hasn't been verified, or he could have misheard it, or taken it out of context. Much ado about nothing.
