I have just started the long journey of healing when a close family member suffered a severe brain injury that caused a major impairment of function. It has been one month and it just seems to get harder as challenges mount up ranging from financial to my education. I have to reshape my entire life, making great, great sacrifices to accommodate this beloved member of our family.
Now, in a gratuitous appearance on late-night television, once again proving his narcissistic belief that he is some kind of Hollywood celebrity, President Obama likens his poor bowling skills to those “like the Special Olympics” to get a cheap laugh. This would be offensive coming from Cosmo Kramer. Coming from our new President who was elected on a promise of bi-partisan peace and love, this is ear-splitting and nasty.
Mr. President, you are an asshole. You have no idea how much your words hurt and I truly hope you never do have to face the challenges I do today. I would imagine that the taste of eating the words you shat out of your mouth last night would be utterly Ipecac-ish. I hope that your little laugh was worth it. You lost the faith of a large part of the country and hurt many of us to boot.
Great job, Mr. President. I am ashamed of my country (for the first time in my adult life…)
