And whoever green lit it, because it's a virtual carbon copy of the headline for the TPM story from last night that got 1000 comments.

To do what?
 
2009-03-20 04:08:12 PM  
This is the third Special Olympics green light. I'm ok with that. I think Obama needs to bowl with the champion that challenged him and maybe hire someone, that would be cool.

It just bothers me that there was only one recent thread about innocent captives in Guantanamo (and so very few responses comparatively).
 
2009-03-20 04:10:02 PM  
He should just have the bowling team over for dinner and let them roll a few games in the White House.

Well, the issue of Guantanamo comes up at least once a week, but this is the first time I can recall a President making fun of retarded kids, so its got a kind of novelty to it, you know? Besides, this is Fark, where we thrive on the trivial.
 
2009-03-20 04:16:19 PM  
You know what is better then winning the gold medal in the Special Olympics?

Not being farking retarded.

Hmm... Interesting point.

Okay: This is the first time I can recall a President making fun of retarded kids on national television with a milquetoast comedian host lobbing softballs at him.

Well, the same organization he insulted would be more insulted if he'd referred to them as 'retarded kids', so I guess we can be glad he at least used a euphemism.

Though it would be somehow awesome if he just said, "I know, I was like some kinda retard to make that statement."

Or if he said "Special Olympics? Sorry about that. I meant Para-Olympics. The cripples, not the retards".

I was just going to say this. Yeah, the more important stories generally show up here, but the main goal is to highlight funny and weird stuff. Don't whine at Fark when the story you think is important doesn't get greenlit. Write a funnier headline for it.

I think I see a new Patton Oswalt routine there, asking which one a retarded cripple would be eligible for.

There have been enough retards in the White House, thank you very much.

Read the comments on the article if you really want to know what stupid is. Lots of idiots are actually saying Obama should be impeached over this.
 
2009-03-20 04:59:55 PM  
Oh, hell, let's just go ahead and make it a cabinet-level position.
 
2009-03-20 05:00:11 PM  
He's already on the bowling team. he doesn't need ANOTHER representative from the special O-lympics.
 
2009-03-20 05:01:56 PM  
Another Obama article...talking about Bush.

I think I've just come to an epiphany:

Obama's fark-uppery is directly proportional to the B-b-b-Bush from the left.
 
2009-03-20 05:02:20 PM  
Mnemia: Lots of idiots are actually saying Obama should be impeached over this.

Well, Obama was technically saying he is less competent than a retard, so I think that we need to have him examined by doctors who will issue a Certificate of Not-Retard, just so that the ugly rumor that he is, in fact, a retard doesn't gain any traction.

I mean, what's Obama afraid of? Why won't he get not-a-retard certified? What's he hiding?

To bad, Bush has a higher IQ than Chairman Obama, so he does not qualify.

By the way, Has Chairman Obama's poles come up? Passed Bushes yet? Or are they still falling?

I've never seen this Certificate of Not-Retard. Have you? Why won't they just show us the the Certificate of Not-Retard? What are they trying to hide?!?!?!?!

The Special Olympics wants President Obama to consider hiring one of their athletes to work in the White House.

As WHAT?

I can understand asking for an apology, that's the right thing to do.

I can understand inviting their bowling champion to the White House for a game, it's sporting and a good way to make amends.

But THIS? This is just... Just RETAR-...!

.....

... Oh.

WOW - In before the phone-tree alerts the hordes that there is another Obama thread to get into....

Seriously just admit it was a stupid stupid thing to say - we all know it makes you feel better to somehow equate it to Bush in some way - but seriously its been 2 months of the same damn thing - if you make it to two years of the same damn thing I think we are pretty safe in saying that Obama will be a one termer.

Retarded postings on fark is not the application process.

I wouldn't argue that. I just don't think it's that big of a deal.

And at least he called the Chair and personally apologized. And not one of those "sorry you're so sensitive" apologies, either.

I thought elections were every four years?

Screw being politically correct, you're retarded sir. And not one of those good at something special olympic retards, you're just a plain ol' sit at home and drool on yourself retards.

They're the same folks who scoff that everyone is being too PC.

Instead, why don't we have a certain ex-president compete in the special olympics. I think he'd qualify.

Oh gosh that one really stung - you sir, are the complete moron - I am QUITE aware that we only have to go through a presidential campaign every four years - and I thank the heavens on a daily basis for that. And while I personally don't agree with most of President Obama's policies I hope and pray he has success at quite a few things. It's been two months and I (along with many) are not ready to judge the man - however, if in 2 years we're still making the same excuses and the BEST that the democrats can come up with is "well at least that's better than Bush" then, yes, he will be a one term president.

I know there was a lot of words in a row there, some of them with more than four or five letters, but here's to hoping you can understand them all :)
