Sarah Palin ignores comedian's "special needs" joke at tea party event (ADDED: Video of her speech)


So far, only Parts 1 and 2 are available. That's enough, trust me. Note: All of it is posted now. Watch at your own risk. My snark-filled livetweets of Palin's screech can be found here.

In the past, Former Half-Gov Hypocridiota McSelfServing has made a big, showy to-do about any questionable references to special needs kids because she has a child with Down syndrome:

Washington (CNN) - In February 2010, Palin called for Rahm Emanuel, then-White House chief of staff, to be fired after he called liberal groups thinking of running ads against Democratic lawmakers “retarded.”

When an episode of Fox’s “Family Guy” mocked Trig that same month, Palin wrote in a post to her Facebook followers that it felt like “a kick in the gut.” [...]

“As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate,” Bristol wrote. “Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny?”

Well, now, as luck would have it, just before Palin went on stage to share her wisdom and fine speaking skills, comedian Eric Golub told a few jokes that "compared liberal political ideology to 'special needs children'.” You can only imagine how offended Sarah the Self-Righteous was. But that can wait. First, more about Golub's tea party rally humor.

First he praised the Former Half-Gov for raising Trig while being a working mom. How thoughtful of him. Then he had this to say:

“For that reason alone, the left should worship Sarah Palin and adopt her as one of their own... Because the leftist haters are an entire political ideology of special needs children... And unlike Trig, they aren't very lovable... “All you hear from them is give me, give me, I need, I need, I want, I deserve, I’m entitled – no you don’t.”

Yes, he made those insensitive cracks right there in front of Sarah and all her adoring tea bagger pals!

CNN is reporting that he made similar jokes at a 2010 convention for the conservative organization Young America's Foundation.

Yet nobody running the Tea Party of America event seemed to object to what he said at that gig, and instead, threw down the welcome mat for him and invited him to be Palin's opening act.

Palin's response?
