My Friend Simon – UPDATED



“…This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world,” Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate, said.…”

Earlier this evening I emailed Stephen Mallory, and mentioned I think The One (incompetent) did this on purpose – and he should not be given a break.  Sarah Palin had just turned down portions of the “stimulus” package, and Obama has an ostrich egg on his face.  He is petty, thin-skinned, and will do just about anything to make his primary competition – Sarah Palin look bad.


Last night Barack Obama made a really nasty comment about bowling and the Special Olympics.  The liberals are treating it as a “learning” moment.  If “liberals” were true to what they preached, they would be enraged.

I have a friend named Simon.  He is in his mid 20s, and is quite ‘functional’ with his Downs.  My friend Simon has a job here in town and makes huge tips – everyone gives him a five spot.  You need change for a $50?  Simon has it, and proudly makes change.  Then is quite appreciative of the five dollar tip he is receiving.

He is kind.

He’s a bit of a flirt.

Simon has a wicked sense of humor to the point where he’s quite proud of the fact that he’s a smart ass, and quite good at it.

Simon is a Christian.  He attends a local church, regularly.  He was quite proud of the fact that he was a Wise Man in their big Christmas Play.  He is full of love.  Simon comes up to you, gives you a big hug, says, “I love you.”  He also says, “You know, I’ve been praying for you.”

One other thing – my friend Simon is the New Mexico Special Olympics Gold Medal winner in bowling!

One of these days Trig Palin is going to be participating in the Special Olympics, with a mom who is out there, standing up for the little guy.  He may even be joining Simon.  These are the people – the babies – Barack Obama and his little Democratic friends want to abort.

It’s okay, Mr. President.  Simon is praying for you.

Frankly, I think the whole thing was designed as a slam against this:
