    She cried "I'm the victim of the media". Not in those exact words, but close enough.

    Also how do you like my expert photoshop skills?
    Your photoshop skills are great. Purdy much all you have going for you in this thread...

    Dude...seriously. You cannot have a rational discussion about abortion, religion, or Sarah Palin with that lot.

    Just walk away. It's easier than getting their mouth foam all over you when they go rabid with irrationality.

    Not those exact words. I thought you would understand implication.

    She's complained about how sexist everyone was in criticizing her. You couldn't critique her policy or lack of experience without it being called sexism. You and other claim Obama complained about racism - and admittedly his supporters did.

    Palin on the other hand griped about Hillary saying that she gets treated differently for being a woman; and then publicly complained about being treated differently for being a woman.

    She insists Democrats be fired for using "retarded" as an insult; but let's Republicans slide - indeed, backtracks to say it's okay for them to use the term - as long as it's about Democrats.

    She quits because she's tired of being criticized and she's tired of it.

    Nothing - not a single thing that went wrong since she became a celebrity - has been her fault. It's the sexist media and the Democrats fault. All of it.

    Victim. Victim. Victim.

    Well, it's the show's references that are remembered, but not their supposed main plot.

    Anyways, I always came to the conclusion that Seth MacFarlane was a piece of crap anyway. Most of the time, the shock humor is just MacFarlane trying to appear controversial without enough of that self-humor to trash his own material taking itself too seriously.

    The reference will come and go, and the controversy probably will not last long, if it even really hits the radar for most people.

    Palin, on the other hand, called every criticism "sexist". Let's not forget when Obama used the common phrase regarding lipstick on a pig, she immediately assumed that he was calling her a pig, because she had made a joke about lipstick. Even though, she was never referenced in his speech. Sexist!

    Katie Couric asking her about magazines? Sexist! They're out to get her, that liberal media! (Never mind that that was probably the softest lob in the universe.)

    She screams "I'm a victim!" with EVERY criticism.

    Look at her barely-in-the-English language resignation speech. It was about what a victim she was. To put it more succinctly that she could (leaving out stories of moose and bad basketball metaphors): "I'm leaving because people said mean things about me."

    You know who she most reminds me of? NY Governor Paterson. They both have to make HUGE public statements any time someone says something about them. This only gives credence to the critic. She doesn't know when to pick a battle. She tries to fight all of them.

    You can think so all you like. If you want Obama back in office, then nominate Palin. She has too much baggage. Yes, she has rabid supporters. That's undeniable. But her negatives STILL are higher than Hillary Clinton's were before she ran.
    I think there was truth to her complaints (well, the media and liberals went above and beyond the call of duty to trash her and her reputation), but she ended up being completely in tune with the lack of dignity of political discourse.

    I have never watched an episode of The Family Guy. Am curious how many here honestly say they watched this episode of The Family Guy before Palin brought attention to it. Am guessing zero.

    No doubt the joke was about the Palin clan. I think she should have called him up directly on the phone. Talked to him directly and ask why he chose the low road. Or better yet have her and Trig visit him in person. That would have been most powerful.
    But instead she decided to get some mileage out of this as some other poster said she gather so many voters. She gave herself some PR and the show some PR.

    Never forget she is a politician like the rest. Oh, they all try to say they are different.

    Look...I dont know what the big deal is. Yes...the Family Guy is a cartoon show and yes...they tell tasteless jokes. I'm sure there have been MANY jokes told about Obamas backseat dalliances with his drug dealer in Chicago, and Michelle Oboma's ENORMOUS Ass (and really the absolute comedy of HER being the Obesity Czar) and the very OBVIUOUS fact that Obamas children bear a FAR more paternal resemblance to the right rev Wright than Stuttering John Obama...who we KNOW swings from the other side of the plate...

    Ms Palin really should just chill. You start to look like you dont have a sense of humor after a while.

    Check out Michelles fascination with Boob Belts...its funny...because waist belts wont stay down because of her GUYNORMOUS badonkadonk...

    Wait...I just realized...Seth McFarland is doing the double slam...because MO-Bama looks just like Clevelands ex-wife! And Cleveland looks an awful lot like a young Rev...just sayin...
