Rice opened her mouth and said "birth defect"
Advertisements [?]

neo cons don't say anything by happenstance.

I think it was disgusting of her to use that phrasing. so why did they chose birth defect.

it doesn't fit the situation. are they trying to make the situation fit the words birth defect?

birth defect/woman, can't separate the two.

thus it is woman's fault?

what came to your alls minds when you heard her say birth defect?
