CHICAGO - How merciful is the Left to disabled children? Well, it depends on who your parents are.
A shocking display of political animosity crossing the lines of decency was displayed Thursday and Friday after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision was made public. The Left used the opportunity to hoist Obama's chief campaign strategist David Axelrod's adult daughter and to insult conservative activist former Governor Sarah Palin's toddler son.
Axelrod pulled his disabled daughter into the political fray by reliving the difficult time their family endured during his daughter's battle with epilepsy. At the same time, his Leftist devotees took to Twitter to degrade and insult Governor Sarah Palin's young toddler son, challenged with Down Syndrome maladies. In an plea for Obama support, Axelrod wrote Friday afternoon:
Yesterday's Supreme Court ruling was very personal to me.
Thirty years ago, my daughter Lauren, then just seven months old, began having grand mal seizures. They wouldn't stop for 18 years.
Lauren's epilepsy robbed her of her childhood, some of her capacities and, very nearly, her life.
We were young parents then, just starting out, with lousy insurance I got from my job. And we very nearly went broke paying for Lauren's uncovered care and medication.
I was moved to tears when the Supreme Court affirmed the Affordable Care Act, because I know that other families won't have to face the terror and heartache we knew.
And that's because of a president who had the courage to defy the politics and all the obstacles in order to fight for people like my Lauren.

At the same time Axelrod was using his disabled daughter to drum up support for the failing Obamatax, his Leftist supporters let loose on Governor Palin after she reacted to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision, here as recorded on Twitchy.com
Think this campaign won't be the dirty and nastiest campaign yet?
