Selective Outrage?

Ann Coulter calls the President of the United States "a retard" and no one seems to care:
Ann Coulter called President Obama a "retard" on Monday night.
She made the remark on Twitter after the third and final presidential debate between Obama and Mitt Romney."I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard," she tweeted
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that multiple people were upset because President Obama reminded the world that the military uses fewer horses and bayonets during last night's debate.
TMZ spoke with multiple people in the bayonet industry who tell us they were shocked and even offended when Obama brought up the weapon during last night's debate.
So it's acceptable to insult the President's intelligence but not acceptable to make wry observations about the changing military. I've never served, but I doubt a horse and bayonet are effective countermeasures against a drone.

On a positive note, I haven't read anything indicating that the horse lobby feels slighted.
