You may have seen the post at Wonkette yesterday that mocked Trig Palin on his birthday (normally I might not have linked to it to contribute to their ad revenue, but since so many of their advertisers have pulled, I figure it’s not as big a deal). It was the typically tasteless hatred very poorly disguised as “humor” we’ve come to expect from some on the left when it comes to the Palin family.

The Wonkette folks and anybody defending them over this no doubt loved the Glenn Beck advertiser boycott, but I doubt they’re loving it when the tables are turned:

JJIll: “All: Please know we do not condone the Wonkette story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have taken action to remove our ads.”

Holland America Cruises: “Thanks for letting us known, we have blocked that page from running our ads.”

Nordstrom: “Thanks for letting us know. The ads have been removed. We’re sorry to disappoint you.”

Reliant Energy: “Thank you for alerting us. We did not choose this site and are working to have this removed immediately.”

Bob Evans: “Our ad is not supposed to be running on that site. Agency has been alerted to pull it immediately.”

DealSwarm: “We’ve pulled our ads from the site — we wouldn’t have approved them running next to that blog post. (Trig is a cutie pie.) Thank you for alerting us — we weren’t aware our ads were running alongside a blog post like that. Ads have been pulled.”

MetroPCS: “We don’t condone @Wonkette, have removed the ad and ensured that our ads won’t appear on this site in the future. Thanks for bringing to our attention.”

The “reasoning” for the Palin fail at Wonkette is the same lame excuse that’s usually made when the PDS afflicted left mocks Trig’s Down Syndrome: “We’re just pointing out that Sarah Palin uses her son as a campaign prop.” Sure — and if she never appeared with her son they’d accuse her of being ashamed of him and of being a bad mother. Whatever. What this kind of thing boils down to is that people like this Wonkette idiot believe that Trig should have never been born. Well, if the author of that post is the definition of perfection, give me a million Trig Palins over one Jack Steuf (the alleged name of the author) any day of the week.

Speaking of the author, in a nice sort of “f-you,” somebody bought the domain name JackSteuf.com and the site now redirects to the National Down Syndrome donation page. Heh. Well played, Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous.

You’ll now see at the top of the Wonkette post, the author has supposedly apologized for calling Trig “retarded,” but not for calling Trig a “political prop.” I don’t know, maybe the author’s parents just weren’t as proud to take him around with them as the Palins are to show off Trig, but that’s hardly the fault of the Palins, Mr. Steuf.

You know it’s bad when even the Huffington Post is distancing themselves from these “Trig truther” fools.

Update: As you can see, the post has been removed. “Poor comedic judgment”? Pah-leez. “Hate-filled unfunny rant that backfired horribly” would be more honest.

    I went there yesterday – it was completely disgusting and the comments were the most vial things I have read (to date, because the depravity of the left knows no bounds). It made me sick to my stomach to read the filth and stench that the lefties, who claim to want peace, love, civility and compassion for all, have posted.

    In all my travels of the conservative blogs I have NEVER encountered this kind of commentary. And in those same blogs I have NEVER seen one comment about Obama's kids – not one!

    "And in those same blogs I have NEVER seen one comment about Obama's kids – not one!"

    And wasn't it laughable HuffPo and others made a talking point of their "drawing a line"? Like you're kidding. Then in typical fashion they draw fast and loose "parallels" to Birthers. Please. We're talking about 'your' dirty laundry.

    It was absolutely vile.
    Jack Steuf and Wonkette deserve the blame for this. Not "Lefties."
    Signed,
    A Lefty who was up all night last night writing advertisers and asking them to pull their ads from Wonkette.

    I think it was clear I was talking about the PDS afflicted left… and if that's not you, congrats.

    I highly recommend reading Kingsjester's post about it.

    I once met a young man on a local news site who was challenged. In his 21 or 22 years he has managed to get a job and pay for his living expenses without assistance from the government. He was an advocate for stopping the R word. What a story he was. He crushed all the "retard" bashers when told his story. He drove hours 2 or 3 times a month to tell his story of becoming self sufficient and how hearing the R word was like being beat with stick. Here's to James R Meadors or Trig Palin !
