Oh, Facebook. That’s the medium Sarah Palin chose to urge President Obama to fire White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel for his offensive comment back in August where he referred to some liberal groups who opposed President Obama’s health care reform as “f***ing retarded.”

As the mother of a baby with Down Syndrome, Palin took great offense to Emanuel’s use of the “R” word, and wrote on her Facebook page: “Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities—and the people who love them—is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking. Our president is doing himself a disservice by seeming to condone Rahm’s recent sick and offensive tactic.”

As for Emanuel, he’s been doing damage control ever since the scandal broke last week. He made a private phone call to Tim Shriver, head of the Special Olympics, to apologize. But many believe that is not enough.

Emanuel will now also be hosting a delegation at the White House with members of the Special Olympics, where Emanuel will be asked to take “the R-word pledge at and to join in the March 3, 2010 Spread the Word to End the Word campaign, as well as invite him to be a leader of change surrounding the pervasive and damaging use of the R-word,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
