Not sure how anyone couldn't be ashamed of this -- the blog Wonkette published a post making fun of Trig Palin having Down Syndrome. The post is so disgusting that it's not even worth being linked to and giving it the traffic. It's an entire post dedicated to crude comments that definitely wouldn't pass any Leftist sensitivity test.  Here's a choice one:

 "“Why just celebrate tax day today, April 18th? It’s also Trig Paxson Van Palin’s 3rd birthday. His mom went to a lot of trouble to leak amniotic fluid over 8 states to make sure that he arrived in this world somewhat alive,” writes Wonkette operative “Barbara_i,” reminding us of the occasion. “Sarah went to a whole lot of trouble to name him ‘Van Palin,’ a ‘Van Halen’ reference he will never get.” Indeed."


Apparently, what precipitated the post was the fact that it was Trig Palin's birthday, and Team Sarah made a post celebrating that fact on the website.

Slow news day, Wonkette?
