Sarah Palin's not a fan of the Family Guy...

As you probably all well know, this last Sunday's episode of "Family Guy" has created quite an uproar with Sarah Palin.  The son on the show, Chris falls in love with a girl who has Down Syndrome.  She says that her mother used to be the Governor of Alaska which of course, was a barb directed at Palin.  Sure, it was in bad taste but the show always pushes the envelope in regards to their ideas-this is why it's Family Guy and why it's so popular.  It's called having a warped sense of humor.  The character was a girl not a boy and they didn't mention Palin by name.  This is coming from a woman that two weeks ago didn't even raise an eyebrow over fellow neo-con, Rush Limbaugh's use of the word, "retarded".  In fact, she defended him.  Don't you think she contradicted herself.  Family Guy is a cartoon and Rush Limbaugh is a real person.  He's in the public spotlight with his radio show and can be quite offensive for his neo-con views.  Why is she giving him a pass? Is it because he's a fellow wingnut?  Must be!

I'm with you here. How odd that Palin found Limbaugh's reference to Democrats as "retards" to be funny and satirical". I knew that when it was turned in her direction she'd have a completely different opinion--even if it WAS actually used in a satirical fashion. Never been a big fan of this show myself. Strange that it runs on Fox...

Very interesting.  I heard about this episode, but I've yet to see it myself.  Good point in bringing up that incident with Rush Limbaugh the other week.  By the way, if you look to the right side of the page, you'll noticed that I changed the name of this topic to the name of this episode of Family Guy (because that's what you're reviewing!), added a wiki, some tags, attributes and a photo.
