    Fox's 'Family Guy' takes on Sarah Palin by appearing to mock her son Trig's Down synd

    Fox's 'Family Guy' takes on Sarah Palin by appearing to mock her son Trig's Down syndrome

    Fox could be heading to Sarah Palin's doghouse after the animated show "Family Guy" appeared to mock her son's Down syndrome on Sunday night.

    In the taste-challenged episode, one of the show's characters dates a woman who apparently suffers from Down syndrome. The woman makes comparisons to Palin's 22-month-old son, Trig.

    "My dad's an accountant, and my mom's the former governor of Alaska," the mentally disabled character said, without mentioning any names.

    Will Sarah Palin now quit her job on FOX News as a result of this? Or will she demand that Family Guy be cancelled? I predict that this could go either way but I doubt she'll quit her job on FOX.

    Score another hundred thousand votes for Sarah.

    Good job Family Guy writers.

    It's free speech, it's protected. I think, if the scene happened as described, it crossed the line and should have been avoided, but it's not as if anything can actually be done.

    The whole situation boggles the mind.

    First of all, Family Guy didn't...even make a joke with that line. The line, spoken by a girl with down's syndrome, was "my dad's an accountant and my mother is the former governor of Alaska."

    ... Where's the joke in that? This character has down's syndrome like Sarah Palin's child does?

    It's not even "taking on" Sarah Palin. It was just... a useless line designed to make people mad. Way to go, Family Guy writers. Seth MacFarlane is seriously the biggest smug douchebag I've ever seen.

    The show sucks anyway. Cartman is right.

    I honestly don't see the big deal. Family Guy crosses the line all the time. Their jokes are completely tasteless and do often go below the belt. This one was no exception. They make fun of everyone and have made it clear that there is no topic too taboo to go after. Why should Sarah Palin be an exception? If you don't like the jokes, don't watch the show. It just seems silly to me to get that bent out of shape over a stupid joke that was made on a cartoon show.

    Cheap shots like that are only going to piss people off and garner her more sympathy; make the Leftists look more and more like the bad guys.

    Of course it was a cheap shot. Family Guy often takes cheap shots. That's the whole point. But if you really think that a silly joke on a cartoon show is going to garner her a significant amount of votes you are seriously kidding yourself. It may make some feel bad for her, but I highly doubt that it will make anyone suddenly want to vote for her more. The fact that she may deserve sympathy in this particular instance has nothing to do with her credentials as a politician.
