Trampling the Weak
Marianne Leonne, whose quadriplegic child died in 2005, recently came across a shirt targeted to hockey players -- and presumably hockey moms -- that said "Trample the Weak. Hurdle the Dead." Writing in the Boston Globe, she says, "In the warrior culture espoused by self-described 'pit bull' Palin, there is no place for the weak." And the records of McCain and Palin on disabilities show they "are more likely to continue the brutal and failed Bush policies of trampling the weak and hurdling the dead."
