With the recent dearth of real issues to contend with in DC, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (wow, that goes together like Alcohol, Tobbacco and Firearms, doesn't it?) unanimously approved the bill that will, if passed, become Rosa’s Law. From The Hill:
Rosa’s Law, introduced by Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), had strong bipartisan support.
It would replace the terms “mental retardation” with “intellectual disability” and “mentally retarded individual” to “individual with an intellectual disability.
It doesn’t take a Cro-Magnon to realize how much better off the American people are with the Senate tied up on issues like these. I mean they could be actively screwing us over like they did in December, remember?
But it does leave us with one nagging question. What do we call Joe Biden? Let’s face it, while “the intellectually disabled Joe Biden” does carry a smidgen of humor it will get old. Fast. Will the ‘tard suffix still be usable or will that be illegalized as well? If they take that away from us it eliminates several of my personal favorites!
We can always use the Wicked Witch of the West’s advice and “Wait till its passed to find out what’s in it” but I, for one, would like to have my adjectives prepped and ready to fire when needed. And we’re going to need them Monday when Biden opens the gaff-o-matic at Arlington.
I’m going to need the help of all the Progressive DoucheBag Watchers for this one. Open thread, have at it…
