Okay, so there’s been this big thing about “Family Guy” versus Sarah Palin over the last couple days, and I’ve tried to avoid it because nothing sucks the funny out of TV news quite like politics. But, if you’ve missed it, here’s the rundown: Sunday’s “Family Guy” featured a character with Down syndrome who said, “My dad’s an accountant, and my mom’s the former governor of Alaska.” (Watch the scene here.) Naturally, Palin got all pissy about someone talking about her retard baby Trig, because being sensitive about Down syndrome is the hot-button issue here in the year 1989.
The story finally stopped being boring when Andrea Fay Friedman, the actress with Down syndrome who delivered the line in question, wrote an email to several different news outlets addressing the controversy:
I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor. I thought the line “I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska” was very funny. I think the word is “sarcasm.”
In my family we think laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life. My mother did not carry me around under her arm like a loaf of French bread the way former Governor Palin carries her son Trig around looking for sympathy and votes. [via Gawker]
Oh, SNAP. Someone get to Western Union and send Sarah Palin a burn notice, because that retarded girl just OWNED Palin and her mongoloid loaf of bread.
