It just seems silly to me to get that bent out of shape over a stupid joke that was made on a cartoon show.

    Think what you will of the show's quality - but it's still the highest-selling TV show on DVD in history. It's previous season it averaged about 8 million viewers a week in first run; about 4 million in reruns in syndication; and about 1 million on Adult Swim. It's also the second-most viewed show on HULU.

    So, not even including internet viewings or DVD - on an average week, at least 13 million people watch Family Guy.

    A little more than zero.

    And once again, someone says something about her and she screams "Victim! Victim! Victim!"

    I find it ironic since she said that Rush could say "retard" because "that's satire". But as show that IS satire can't do something that satirizes her.

    She'll take ANY opportunity to point out how people attack her. She loves being the victim.

    Here's an idea: If you can't stand the heat; get out of the kitchen. If you are in the public eye, people will be mean to you.

    As far as I know, Obama doesn't Facebook the world every time someone calls him a name. Hell, even Bush could take the bile flung his way.

    Palin? She cries on Facebook every time someone says her glasses are crooked.

    Seriously, this wasn't even family guy making a joke about Sarah Palin.

    How do I know?

    Because it actually made sense in the realm of the story.

    Now if they had Peter comment about the girlfriend going "Wow, she's dumber than an Alaskan with Down Syndrome" followed by a cut away to a shot of Sarah Palin going behind a podium at the convention going "You Betcha!".....THAT'D be a family guy joke.

    Everyone knows the only jokes are the ones the manatee's create for cutaways

    1-Im not a Palin fan
    2-I agree...she isnt doing herself any favors and needs to grow a thick skin.
    but...
    3-Its NOT an attack on Palin...its a dig at her children.

    There was a time when children were off limits in politics. By and large, democrat children are still off limits.

    Having seen it, I didn't take it that way at all - and I come from a family with a severely mentally disabled member.

    In fact, the character is portrayed as strong, beautiful (Chris has a crush on her), and having a bad personality NOT based on her condition.

    As was stated in the other thread on this, the actress who portrayed the character has Downs Syndrome. She's saying, "Lighten up." And that the joke was meant toward Palin and not her son.

    I seem to recall McCain calling Chelsea ugly; and I was little, but I remember a LOT of insults hurled at Amy Carter.

    Just sayin'.

    The Palmreading Queen only raised this in trying to look like a victim AGAIN and gather more sympathy votes. I watched that episode and it did not look like they were making fun of Trig's Down Syndrome. Only Palmreaders Anonymous members would think that and then whine about it.

    STOP that! You're not allowed to use facts to expose hypocrisy. Some folks will break out in hives.

    And this has what to do with Palin? I'll answer for you....NOTHING, not a ****ing thing.

    EPIC FAIL
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Ohhhh...Wow. You proved a point.

    Or - what is abundantly more clear - is that you didn't read what I was responding to; which was this:

    "It used to be that politician's children were off limits."

    So, I stated that Republicans used to pick on Chelsea Clinton and Amy Carter. Thus suggesting that people have been making fun of politician's children for at least a while.

    So, who owns the EPIC FAIL?

    Can I get you a mirror?
