Palin vs. Limbaugh

Forget Rush, Sarah Palin should call out herself. After all, she said the "R" word in her interview with Chris Wallace:
"I didn't hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with "F-ing retards."
Aha! She said it! She should call out herself!

Rush Limbaugh was obviously mocking Rahm Emanuel. Media: "But he said the "R" word..." Yeah, and so did most of you in reporting this story. Should Palin call you all out?

It's absurd. I don't like anyone using the word in any context, but there's a clear difference between the usages.

The media doesn't actually care about any of this. If they did, they'd rake everyone over the coals who has used this word and not just Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh was using satire. Satire is cutting and often shocking. That's the whole point. All the media wants to do is create a controversy between Palin and Rush, and neither one of them is going to step into that trap.
