Fun and Stuef at Wonkette

A liberal political web site called Wonkette hates Sarah Palin so it makes fun of her 3-year-old son on his birthday for having Down syndrome.

Initially, the editor of the site Ken Layne boldly defended the piece and later tried to explain that the intention was not to make fun of the child but of his mother, who is, he claims, a disgusting person and horrible mother because she uses her son as a "political prop."

Anyway, Mr. Layne's excuse didn't convince many people, including several of his advertisers who pulled their ads from his site.

He has since issued an unapologetic apology. The writer, Jack Stuef, has issued his own unconvincing apology for writing this among other things:
That strange man yelling unintelligibly at Sarah Palin? He’s merely a lowly shepherd proclaiming the birth of our savior. Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.) It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we are privileged to live in a time when we can witness the greatest prop in world political history. [...]
Incest jokes and making fun of a 3-year-old's dreams because "What's he dreaming about? Nothing! He's retarded."

Very funny.

That's Stuef in the photo. His alma mater must be very proud of him.

I am happy to report that I had never heard of him before this ignorant posting of his. I am pretty sure I will never hear from him again.

The Palins are a tough bunch, having to endure everything they have.

Didn't Obama use his race as a political prop? Oh, wait, nevermind, the media did...

Threats from advertisers worked.
Hmm...What if advertisers withdrew from the Daily Times because of its anti-Catholicism?
