Family Guy Under Fire…Again

This past Sunday’s episode of Family Guy has been chastised by Sara Palin and company for mocking her downs syndrome son Trig, in a “Coulda been funnier” episode. You think retarded, you think funny, this wasn’t the case in this…case. The episode has Chris getting the courage up to finally ask out a girl he’s liked for a long time, she just happens to have downs syndrome, and during their date she mentions her mother was the governor of Alaska.

Sarah Palin has lashed back the only way an adult woman should with fame, money, and a brood of children…She blogged on Facebook. Handing over the responsibility of taking care of the media, Palin recruited her teenage daughter…Also a very mature move, to write a blistering response to a cartoon:

“Insults directed at [my] youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet. As a culture shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed.”

They didn’t “Direct” an insult at Trig at all as a matter of fact, mostly the girl in the episode was belligerent and mean, showing everyone that even someone with downs syndrome can be an asshole. It wasn’t even that funny an episode really. The Palin’s just haven’t been in the media for awhile and took this opportunity to add a few minutes to their 15…

I think that Bristol has her own kid to watch, so stop texting, get off Facebook and shut the fuck up…The joke was at Sarah Palin, not Trig.
