Let’s see… Rahm Emanuel called some people “f—–g retarded,” Sarah Palin said he should apologize (which he did), and Andrew Sullivan is now saying that Palin doesn’t have a leg to stand on because Palin mocked people with mental disabilities long before Rahm Emanuel did.

How did Palin mock people with mental disabilities? That’s a simple one: Todd and Sarah Palin named their son “Trig” because it’s some sort of code for Down Syndrome:

The medical term for Down Syndrome is Trisomy-21 or Trisomy-g. It is often shortened in medical slang to Tri-g.

Is it not perfectly possible that the very name given to this poor child, being reared by Bristol, is another form of mockery of his condition, along with the “retarded baby” tag? And does the way in which this poor child was hauled around the country on a book tour, being dragged out in front of flash photographs in the middle of the night, barely clothed, suggest someone who actually cares for children with special needs, or rather sees them as a way to keep the spotlight on her?

C’mon, Levi. Write that book. Expose this fraud.

Or… now stay with me Andrew… but is it not even more perfectly possible that “Trig” could be a Norse word which translates to to “strength, bravery and victory” — or that Trig might be named after his great uncle who was a Bristol Bay fisherman?

Good lord, what a reprehensible uber-douche.

Of course I’m only assuming Sullivan wrote that, but it’s entirely possible that he didn’t.

    I think Andrew Sullivan writes this crap because he is auditioning for his place on one of the Little Three CBS, NBC, ABC. He would fit in quite nicely – you think? Chrissy Tingles would never allow him on MESSNBC and Rick Sanchez at CNN does not need another person in his midst that hates him. And I don't even think National Enquirer would want him. Harry Smith really does need a twin on the morning show so he should apply there – oh wait – CBS is laying off hmmm……

    It would be an amazing coinidence if Sarah Palin named her Downs Syndrome baby Trig and "tri-g" happened to be medical slang for Downs Syndrome, don't you think? Sullivan pretents this with a lot of hate, but he's actually probably right about that being the true origin of the name. I found some evidence through Google that "tri-g" is sometimes used as slang.

    Well, LoafingOaf, since Andrew is a homosexual, then it would also be an amazing coincidence that his last name is sometimes used as slang for anal sex… does this mean his parents were mocking him?

    Well, LoafingOaf, since Andrew is a homosexual, I've also found some evidence through Google that "Sullivan" is sometimes used as slang for anal sex… does this mean Andrew's ancestors saw it coming and were mocking HIM?

    Just because you find it on the internet doesn't make it true LoafingOaf. I'm a physician and I've never heard anyone in the medical field refer to Down Syndrome as "tri-g". Gimme a break.
