President Obama compared his poor bowling to being in the "Special Olympics."
After which, a Special Olympics bowler who has bowled three perfect games challenged the President to a bowling match:
It certainly won't hurt him with his supporters among the "Palin is a bad mother for not aborting her Downs Syndrome baby" crowd.
Okay, it was an off-the-cuff joke, and I think we should give the President a pass. I mean, if Bush had demeaned the Special Olympics in a joke, we'd have never heard of it again, from Democrats or the Media, right? Like we never heard that Dan Quayle misspelled "Potato" reading from a card the school gave him that used the sometimes-given second spelling "potatoe"!
So we should be as charitable to President Obama as the left and the media always were to President Bush and other Republicans. Maybe even a tad more.
