My God, Bob McDonnell is a deplorable human being:
“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically,” he reportedly said. “Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children.”
“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord,” he added. “There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”
I wonder why Palin isn’t in arms. But then again, she did contemplate aborting Trig. Maybe God knew what was in her heart and afflicted the poor child with Down. But she did flip out over the whole Family Guy retard joke. Speaking of:
“I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor. I thought the line ‘I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska’ was very funny. I think the word is ‘sarcasm.’ In my family we think laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life. My mother did not carry me around under her arm like a loaf of French bread the way former Governor Palin carries her son Trig around looking for sympathy and votes,” – Andrea Fay Friedman, the girl with Down Syndrome who voiced the character for Family Guy.
