Kolan McConiughey is shown at Colonial Lanes in Ann Arbor, Mich., Friday March 20, 2009. McConiughey, who is cognitively impaired, has bowled five perfect games since 2005. President Barack Obama made an offhand remark on "The Tonight Show" Thursday comparing his bowling to "the Special Olympics or something." He quickly apologized and told the Special Olympics chairman he wants to have some Special Olympic athletes visit the White House to bowl or play basketball. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

Personally, I think it's partisanly retarded to get offended by Barack Obama's non-telepromptored gaff. Curt makes it a point that the real issue is in hypocrisy and how big of a deal it would be had a Republican president made the non-PC comment.
Certainly, as President of the United States, he comes across as a retard for having made it. Such moments of spontaneity does reveal something about his character and lack of quick judgment.
About as stupid and retarded as my insensitive use of the word "retard" in this post.
