The satirical political blog Wonkette found itself in the midst of a firestorm on Wednesday, when conservatives found a post that its Jack Steuf published Monday which featured images and video mocking Sarah Palin’s son Trig, who has Down syndrome, along with a number of tasteless jokes about him. At one point, Steuf wrote of Trig, "What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded."
The post led to outrage among conservative bloggers, and to a daylong campaign on blogs and Twitter that led Papa John’s Pizza to announce that it will stop advertising on the site.
