Special Olympics for Obama?

By far the best response to Obama's gaffe on the Leno show about Special Olympic athletes has come from one those athletes, who has challenged Obama to a game:

"Kolan McConiughey, a Special Olympics competitor who has bowled three perfect 300 games, tells TMZ that the Prez has to score a lot higher than 129 to beat him. Kolan says he bowls an average of 266.

Kolan - who works at a grocery store in Ann Arbor, MI - said he'd love to go to the White House to beat Barack on his own lane. Kolan said, "He's cool, but he can't beat me." We posed the challenge to the White House. They said "no comment.""

The left-wing media has basically let Obama off the hook on this one. But imagine the horror with which the New York Times would reacted if Bush had made this remark? Which is to say that the NYT would not have genuinely been horrified; it just would have seen an opening to stick it to an ideological foe.

This is a good time to be reminded that Obama fully supports abortion for eugenic purposes. He thinks it should be legal for anyone wanting to abort a baby that might be born with a disability. But he is an abortion moderate. Jim Wallis and the NYT said so.
