    What pathetic hypocrisy! Bill Maher referred to the Palins as 'inbred weirdos' in regard to their Downes Syndrome child, Trig. He has used the most VILE terms to describe women with the blessing of the democratic party. He HEADLINED a democratic fundraiser in Alabama. The democratic party enables him, excuses him and by accepting his money, CONDONES his vicious attacks. Axelrod has reached a NEW LOW in his attempts to excuse the president who claims to 'take the high road' and 'lead by example'. Thanks for the awesome 'teachable moment' in 'civility, tolerance and respect'.
