Sarah Palin Takes On Family Guy Over Down Syndrome Joke

February 23, 2010 by  

Sarah Palin takes on Family Guy over Down syndrome joke Fox News commentator Sarah Palin said she was disappointed with the animated comedy Family Guy’s joke in which the character Chris falls for a girl with Down syndrome who says her mother is "the former governor of Alaska."

Palin, whose youngest son has Down Syndrome, wrote on her Facebook page that she felt like she received "another kick in the gut," and asked "when is enough enough?" quoted by the Associated Press (AP).

Various members of the former Alaska governor’s family also weighed in, with her daughter Bristol stating that the producers of the parody show that airs on Fox were "heartless jerks" for what she said was an act of mocking her brother.

This is not the first time Sarah Palin has been caught up in a "political correctness" controversy surrounding the way public figures have used terms that may refer to people with disabilities in a derogatory manner.

Earlier this month, she blasted White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel for calling some Democrats "f*** retarded," something which Palin said amounted to a "racial slur."

The former GOP vice presidential candidate called on President Obama to remove the Chicago politician from his inner circle.

    If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Politics is a dirty game, and Sarah is very much a part of it. Oddly she seemed to ignore Rush’s retard remarks.

    • http://www.cubasi_kastrono PETER MARTORI

      This is not about taking the “heat” pal…
      this is about a low, coward and unsensitive way to attack
      a person, by the bias of of an innocent memeber of the family
      who is not a candidate, and would not be in the campaign in 2012,if that is what you guys are afraid of.
      Sarah palin has more guts than what you can even think of.
      But one thing is to stand to frontal and face to face coward attackers and another is to be attacked from a treacherous flank as is the case here.
      Who is the coward here , Sarah Palin or the miserable guy who uses her a parody where a human being is targeted to offend another human being who happens to be the mother of a child with that Syndrome ?

      Would that same guy do a joke like that in front of the father of the child ?I am quite sure that he does not have that kind of guts.

      And this is the issue here….not the fear to take the heat ,but to face an attacker of her privacy in an irrelevant point and because the plain cowardice of using an innoncent with a handicap to attack a person you don’t like or who you might be afraid of.

      Is that an argument , a political one or just plain unfari and slimmy cowardice ?

        It is typical leftist behavoir. They portray themselves as the party of compassion, but in reality they have no problem with stepping on anybody that gets in the way of their goal of Absolute Power.

        • Phil

          Dave, things change… Remember when you republicans use to claim you were the Moral party?.. Ya don’t claim that anymore do ya…personally I don’t believe either ( any) party has the corner on morality..

          • DaveH

            I’m not Republican.

      • michael

        I agree the parody was not fuuny. But to argue that it was the liberal media that created it, get real Family guy is on FOX. The station you guys pander to.

        • Phil

          Michael… Good point about Family guy being on the Fox network….. Its owned by they’re own propaganda network..

          • usmadgirl

            Michael & Phil,

            “Family Guy” is created by Seth McFarlane, a very “left-wing” disgusting goon. All of the Fox News people were appalled by & opposed his tasteless topic for this show & most of what he does.

            Fox News has absolutely nothing to do with the programming on that Fox channel.

      • Norm
      • Joe H.

        Peter,
        ABNORMAL has obviously never raised a handicapped child! I have and I almost got in a lot of trouble over knocking a jerk on his butt for making a rude remark about my son! It really takes a man to pick on a child that can’t defend himself!!!! The person that would do that is less than sub-human!!!

      • Yandle

        Peter, You are so correct!

    • c

      you are the problem. she can take the heat. it is another liberal low blow. they have nothing real too use so go extreme. and rush was repeat one of your stupid liberal politicians. the best thing we can do is get rid of sheep like you. you make me sick.

      • Norm

        It was on a cartoon show!! I never watched it because I only watch fox when I need a good laugh. This however wasn’t funny, but neither are the BS and nasty lies spread about a sitting president.

        • steve

          Ok lets not pick on your president (i dident vote for him) lets lash out at your first lady $75000 a day for a vacation oh I mean to console a friend over the loss of her father over a month ago more smoke and mirrors

    • J C

      How sad and how pathetic of the folks over at “Family Guy”.
      And Norm…that’s it. You Sir are the most unbelievably low and ignorant form of reptile there is walking on two feet. I can only wish you a seriously debilitating surprise from your proctologist.

      • s c

        J C, it goes deeper than that. The central issue is the utter willingess of a TV program to take part in an attempt to LEGITIMIZE an unconscionable act. Speaking of wacko ultraliberal progressives who tend to be without a conscience [but constantly pretend to rush to the aid of a constant stream of 'victims'], it is one thing to be born retarded. It is something else to go out of one’s way to ACT retarded [a very accurate way to define most politicians AND ultraliberal progressives].
        What these two-legged vermin REFUSE to admit is that if a conservative or a conservative-leaning TV program did what Family Guy did, the lamestream, prositute media kookoids would be all over it like flies on stink. You know it. I know it. Every conservative knows it, but certifiable ultraliberal progressives will deny it to their dying day.
        If the shoe fits, WEAR IT! And brother, does that damned shoe ever FIT!

        • michael

          AGAIN I WILL REPEAT THE SHOW AIR ON THE FOX NETWORK THE SAME COMPANY YOU GET ALL YOUR LIES FROM AND TREAT THEM AS FACTS

          • Blue

            Michael,

            You’re right. FOX does have a moronic cartoon as a brilliant strategy. To attract the morons to the FOX network so that MAYBE, by osmosis, they may lean something from the more intelligent programs on it. For those of you who are religious, Christ associated with criminals and lowlife, not the good, so that he could “Smarten them up”. Glad you notice Michael.

          • Norm

            michael
            These fools never admit they are wrong. Look at Blue’s response. Amazing.

          • DaveH

            Once again the Norm Pot is calling the Kettle Black.

          • Sweetness4Rock

            There’s a huge difference between Fox News and the regular shows that are not related to news that Fox has. I mean, if you really want to use the “association by name and or network of entities” tactic to say that us right wing nut jobs should bite our tongues….. just look at the name of our president, do I honestly need to type what I mean or can ya put it together…(Uh, yeah, you started it.)…

          • steve

            TROLL

        • eyeswideopen

          s.c. why don’t you complain, or get a petition going like the Dem’s did against Beck? Hey, it is your hollowed network, make them behave.

          SC,
          I had to laugh at5 your first line after what JC wished on him!!! It was quite funny I almost fell over in my chair but I read on and saved myself!!!1

    • DaveH

      Leave it to Norm to stick up for low-life behavior. And this from a guy who sticks up for left-wing Democrats, the very same people who invented “political correctness”. Also, the same people that have for years whined about the Republicans and their “mean” spirits, and their negative campaigns. With Democrats, it’s only OK to wage negative campaigns if they are their own. What a bunch of colossol hypocrites.

      • Norm

        DaveH
        For a guy who wants to put the poor and unemployed in concentration camps, you don’t have much of a leg to stand on.

        • DaveH

          Spoken by a guy who wants to take us back to the days of Slavery. You have no conscience do you Norm? As long as you get what you want, you could care less about who you enslave.
          By the way, your Saul Alinsky tactics don’t work on me. Unlike you and your fellow Liberals, I am swayed only by legitimate facts, not personal attacks.

        • Yandle

          Norm, You would need to stand on stilts to look a snake in the eye!

      • Phil

        Dave, you posted that us Liberals keep Sarah in the news…. Dave, I understand most of you republicans and so called conservatives are terminally confused , but this artical is on a rightwing site…. Not liberal…pay attention to where you are…

        • DaveH

          And you’re a Liberal. Your point is?

    • Robin from Indiana

      Norm… I thought all Dems were politically correct? How would you feel if it were your son and family that were being attacked? Barry has made it clear that his children are off limits, but Sarah’s are fair game? Any one who would slur a toddler with Down Syndrome is a loser. It’s falls right in line with men who beat up women and kids!

    • Claire

      Norm–I don’t think Palin or anyone else would want Rush on her/their case. He is pretty mean talking. She needs to keep on the good side of him.

    • Tom

      Strange… I wonder what would happen if the downs-syndrome child had belonged to the President. I bet you libs would be all over this like stink on s***.
      Let’s face it – it’s not about *what* is said, as far as liberals are concerned – it’s about *who* it’s directed towards.
      Furthermore, when it comes to Democrat’s family & friends, they’re off limits. But the republicans don’t get the same respect. Why IS that?
      Liberals/Democrats/left-wingers are the worst hypocrites this world has ever seen!

    • Faithbeliever

      Shame on you Norm. Just remember you may one day have to defend one of your family members because of something someone has said about them. Then we’ll see what your response is. Her son has done nothing wrong to anyone. All I can say is, what you give out you get back three-fold.

    • Dennis Freels

      (Word Removed) is one of those Democratic hypicrytical idiots that justifies the attacks on a handycaped baby. You should be ashamed (words removed for offensive content).

    • Yandle

      Norm, You are the lowest form of creature on earth!

  • jomama

    To everyone who is offended by Seth McFarlane’s ‘Family Guy’ episode of poking fun at ‘Down Syndrome Girl’:

    Nobody is exempt to the craziness & slander of this show!! It’s just a cartoon!! Lighten up!! You’d think someone tried to sell him to the black market or something. Geez – get a grip.

    • J C

      So let me get this straight…”Down’s Syndrome” is “funny” according to you?

      • Joe H.

        JC,
        I wou;ld love jomamma to come take care of my son for a week and then tell me how funny handicapped kids are! Or even easier go volunteer at his local MRDD school as they are all over the states! Jomamma, please go volunteer for just one week, see if you have the guts to last just that long and then tell me how you feel!

    • Harold Olsen

      Yes, it’s a cartoon and like most cartoon shows these day it is not one bit funny or even slightly amusing. I’ve tried watching it a few times and have yet to laugh at a single thing in it. Mostly, I am just disgusted by it. The fan base of shows like this must really be of extremely low intellect. I’m not surprised that this show is on the Fox broadcast channel, though. They have the most disgusting shows on TV. I can’t think of a single one of their shows that I like or even watch, though I’ve tried watching some. They make me want to puke.

      • independant thinker

        I tried to watch the program and found it so offensive as well as stupid I have not watched it since and have no intention of doing so.

    • Claire

      jomama—I have never watched this show since I refuse to waste my time watching ignorance. To you it may be entertainment but I don’t get my laughs at the expense of disabled people, or others less fortunate. A person never knows how it feels until, or unless a disability befalls them or a member of their family. I have respect for the human race.

  • jomama

    If you don’t like it – don’t watch it. Simple as that.

    • http://www.cubasi_kastrono PETER MARTORI

      je, je, not only I don’t watch it, ..I just don’t like the cowardice of A.H. who take on little or innon=cent persons…
      or use them as a way to get to someone…
      And that is the issue here…COWARDICE, LOW LIFE ,PETTINESS.!

    • Claire

      jomama–Yes, it is as simple as that. And I won’t watch it. However, this tells me what type of person you are.

  • Phil

    It’s only Ok to call someone “Retarded” if it’s Rush Limbaugh…..Sarah also believes her sons disability is a racial issue (slur)…that’s interesting….For someone that called herself a ” pitbull with lipstick” , she’s pretty thin skinned….Maybe she should concider not using her children as her political props..

    • c

      rush did not call anyone retarded, HARRY REID DID. GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT AND QUIT SPREADING LIES.

      • Phil

        It was Rahm Emanuel….not Harry Reid…. Get your facts straight….

        • s c

          Phil, to obummer, biden, pelosi, reid, schumer, dodd, specter and all ultraliberal progressives everywhere, conservatives say in a single voice, JURASSIC!
          All interested and thoroughly confused parties who don’t get it, please call BR 459 and ask for Mary Poppins.

            SC,
            HEE HAW!!!!!!!

      • LynnPA

        “C”, great strategy, forcing Phil to correct his own original mistatement! “When one spins too much, you get dizzy and fall down!”

        • Phil

          Lynn, I didn’t change my statement or post….I had Rahm Emanuals name correct …but I can understand today’s republican or conservative being confused..

          • LynnPA

            I was referencing your ‘original’ post – (It’s only Ok to call someone “Retarded” if it’s Rush Limbaugh), not your ‘Correction’ (It was Rahm Emanuel….not Harry Reid).

            Once again, thank you for correcting your ‘original’ mistake: “It was Rahm Emanuel…not Harry Reid”… not Rush Limbaugh either, as you so nicely point out for us. Must be very rewarding having someone like Rahm on your team.

            Remember, too much spinning will make you dizzy! :-)

        • Phil

          Lynn, once more,,, you don’t know what you’re talking about… It was Rahm Emanuel… Not Harry Reid…. And the next day after Rahm used the term for some democrats Rush Limbaugh used the term over a dozen times on his radio show… You really are confused…

        • Dale

          I noticed that too!

    • eyeswideopen

      Phl, waiting to hear her response to Bob Marshall, who thinks that children with disabilities, mothers, are being punished because they must have had abortions, that’s why they have disabled children. Where is the outrage against that stupid statement? htp://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2010/02/22/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry6232759.shtml

        eyeswideopen ,

        So what did you expect from a woman who has so much love and guts at the same time ? Abortion ?
        At the time she was fighting for her people in the State of Alaska
        as a governor, raising a bunch of kid at the same time,under pressure on many fronts, and working to put order and defend the alaskans patrimony resources, she had become pregnant of this kid who happened to be striken with the Down Syndrome. Also attending conferences and meetings all over the States. Howeve, this woman that some in here treated as a person without braveness, went over all those pressures ,stresses and had that baby , sticking by her principles and love ! Love of God, and faith in God !
        And Principles are the things that must matter the most in Politics if we really care for the country state of affairs,

        • michael

          HEY you did not answer the question posed by eyeswideopen.

          • libertytrain

            I believe he did, in a different post.

        • eyeswideopen

          Peter, I expect her to come out and raise hell with Bob Marshall’s stupid statement that disable children are born to mothers as a punishment. That’s what I expect. Not as an Independent, Republican or Democrat, as a women, I expect her to stand up to such insane, morally reprehensable statements. To suggest that children with disablities are a punishment is outrageous. To suggest that if you have one, you must be guilty of getting an abortion is stupid. If she can flap her mouth about everything else, she sure as heck should stand up on this one.

          • American Citizen

            Who’s Bob Marshall?

    • Harold Olsen

      Palin did not call it a racial issue. What she said was that it was similar to making a racist comment.

      • Phil

        Harold….Do you know what a ” Racial Slur” means…..

      • Phil

        Harold; Maybe you should read the artical again…. Her words were” it amounted to a racial slur”… Unquote …. I understand your confused..

        • Joe H.

          Earth to Phil!!! Amounted to and is or are equall two different things!!! She did not say it was the same thing as just that it amounted to wich it carries the same amount of hurt, if you can’t understand that then you are dead from the shoulders up!!!!

    • Bill

      Don’t believe she used her son as a political prop, she just wanted her family by her side as do all politicans when on-stage. For anyone to attack a persons family or one of their family members is nothing more than a display of a coward. No, I am not a Republican or Democrat. I am not a conservative or liberal. I am not left wing or right wing. I am an American that believe’s in America and our way of life. I believe in the free market system as layed out by our Founding Fathers. I believe in the The United States Constitution and Our Flag and spent over half my life defending all of it. For anyone to attack a family like this clown did is a display of a coward.

        • Phil

          Is ” you Betcha ” part of Palins second language?… I’m also still trying to figureout what speaking and writing a second language has to do with the subject of this artical?

    • michael

      She will never win look at the cepac results and 72% of republicans think she is unqualified.

  • Arkham Grundy

    I am hardly a fan of Sarah Palin, but making people with down syndrome the brunt of jokes is as tasteless as a rubber crutch in a polio ward.

    However Ms. Palin, herself, seems to have no qualms about making groundless vituperous remarks about others that are unsupported by facts. She proudly displays her lack of grasp of issues and smugly hides this behind artificial rhetoric of quasi patriotism. She is the kind of person that makes independents question the cerebral capacity of conservatives.

    We need thoughtful, genuinely intelligent conservative spokespeople who can inspire with clear thinking and clear speech rather than shallow tabloid personalities.

    • http://www.cubasi_kastrono PETER MARTORI

      Oh ! please, c’mon !
      There is an astronomical difference between remarks like these made about grown ,old folks and a kid…specially if the remarks or the jokes are to offend indirectly , to diminish or to insult some one else than the object of the “joke” : the kid on this issue.
      You can make jokes on older folks and direct them to the person you wish..but to use another person to get to some other ,in this case a mother…is an act of hypocresy and shows little compasion for a sick human being.

      • eyeswideopen

        Peter, what is your stance on Bob Marshall’s statement about disabled children being the punishment for an abortion?

        • Jana

          eyes, my stance of that stupid remark is right there with yours. It is despicable to joke or talk like that at all. It is not the child’s fault in having any type of disability and all of this should be off limits. In fact to most decent human beings it is. We take care of our young and we take care of our mentally or physically handicapped. I know that isn’t politically correct, but it is still a fact.

        • DaveH

            DaveH, listen buddy, after you have taken care of a child with disabilities come talk to me. My sister never had an abortion and her second child also has DS. But, good does come from stupid statements, as my sister is now changing parties as she can’t deal with the radical, stupid anti-abortion platform of the Repubs, and Sarah really let her down, by not making any comment.
            WHAT DOES YOUR RAMBLING HAVE TO DO WITH SARAH PALIN? Dave, I don’t like to see anybody suffer, even you. I am a Christian.

          • DaveH

            eyesgluedshut,
            I have raised a handicapped child from birth 27 years ago to the present and I would still not support your liberal point of view!!!Perhaps you should give your sister a break of say two months and YOU raise her child for her those two months! maybe then you would have a better view of what you speak of!!

          • eyeswideopen

            DaveH, my solution to what, the worlds problems? I thought you had all the answers, “GOVERNMENT IS FORCE” is your answer to everything.

          • eyeswideopen

            Joe H, what liberal point of view, that I expect Sarah, to come out and raise hell with an idiot who thinks that disabled children are punishment for a womens actions?

        • http://Don'thaveone Sally

          Eye, that was a stupid statement. Evidentally you and the one that made the remark have no idea than a man in the moon what causes Down Syndrom. It usually happens with mothers that are very very young or are old. There is an extra gene that is thrown into the mix. Usually on the older women, they try to determine if the child is that way before it is borne so that it can be aborted. I think that she didn’t speaks volumns about Sarah Palin.

          • eyeswideopen

            Sally, don’t go there with me, my niece has DS. I asked why Sarah, hadn’t made any comment. I didn’t defame her child. Our family views our niece as a gift, not a punishment for some action.

          • DaveH

            Eyes,
            If you want respect for your freedom and your choices, you need to give others that same respect. I don’t see that in your comments. What is your solution?

          • Joe H.

            eyes,
            no you didn’t make a statement, but you are blowing off the statement that Rham made by bringing up another and two wrongs don’t make a right!! You also support Abnormal making a statement like forget it it’s just politics or to that idea! Oh lest I forget his other ignorant rant, can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!!!

          • eyeswideopen

            JOe, Sally, Dave, are you all just a bunch of nut cases? Do you not understand that I have a family member who is disabled? Of course I don’t like anyone making fun of them. What is funny to one, is not funny to all. Comedy is entertainment, I can turn it off, it won’t affect my life. Politics and what elected officals spew is another more offending situation. I still ask all of you Sarah lovers, where is she on the stupid statement made about abortions and disabled children being the punishment? NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. She speaks out only when it is to her benefit, hypocrites are like that.

        • Yandle

          MANASSAS, Va. – Delegate Bob Marshall will refer to scripture when explaining his anti-abortion beliefs. But the longtime Virginia lawmaker says he wants to set the record straight about a published report claiming he said God punishes some women who’ve had abortions by inflicting their subsequent children with disabilities.

          “Wrong. Never happened. I don’t believe that,” Marshall told Fox 5 News in an exclusive interview in his hometown of Manassas Tuesday night.

          You “which have eyes, and see not”, the anti-abortion platform (against murdering babies) is following the teaching of Christ not the Republicans but when the Republicans are “anti-abortion” they are following the teaching of Christ. A Christian is a follower of Christ and you state you are a Christian, LOOK at all of your comments. Christ said “Ye cannot serve God and mammon” and “He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad” and He teaches “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him” “If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth” “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate” “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils”.”Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”

            For your information I read all the comments here and many, many of your comments in other posts. If your way of thinking (if it can be called thinking) was the rule for anything, there would be mass suffering. You stated above (February 23, 2010 at 7:01 pm) “I don’t like to see anybody suffer, even you. I am a Christian”. None of your comments anywhere resembles Christian principles. All suffering is due to SIN, but all that are suffering may not have committed the sin.

    I WOULD VOTE FOR SARA POLIN FOR PRESIDENT TODAY.
    THE NEWSPAPERS ARE ON A SMEAR CAMPAIGN.IT’S ABOUT TIME THEY STOP AND SIT BACK NAME CALLING ALWAYS COMES BACK HOME TO ROOST.IF THEY PUT THEMSELF’S IN HER SHOES WHAT THEY WOULD DO.MY ADICE TO SARA.CONSIDER THE SOURCE THE SLANDER IS COMING FROM.THEY ARE ALL ARTIFICIAL AND ARROGANT PEOPLE WHO WERE ELECTED TO KEEP THIS COUNTRY SAFE FROM OUR ENEMIES. BUT THE HAVE A DEAL GOING TO SELL THIS COUNTRY OUT

    • American Citizen

      We’ve already been sold out. Listen to the economic analysts. By this time next year, we’re going to be in deep doo-doo.

  • http://www.cubasi_kastrono PETER MARTORI

    I AM OUTRAGED ON THIS ONE…IF WERE IN FRONT OF THAT GUY…
    IN GOD WE TRUST !
    How to catalogue ,classify, or define guys such like these who take on inocent, persons to get to anyone they do hate or detest or dislike or simply are afraid of….?
    In my little book it says clear, and very loud : these are S.o.Bs A.. h.les and cowards !

    Does anyone here REMEMBER , WHAT THE OTHER GUY…THE FAKEST of the FAKES ONE : NOBAMA,
    said during the electoral period ???

    DIDN’T HE SAID : THAT HIS FAMILY WAS OFF LIMITS…! ????

    Now how comes this guy has the nerve to attack Sarah Palin thru an inocent member of her family in that cowardly ,sly , slimmy way ???
    This guy is a true A.. H.le !!!
    Maybe all families in the whole continent who have the same situation and have a child with the Down syndrome, will take theis offensive and coward behaviour as an attack on them too.
    And they may vote for Sarah Palin if she goes for the next elections as a candidate for the first Lady President of the USA ,just to make this guy rage and spite foam by his dirty mouth.
    and… just in case anyone wishes to reply me…find me or argue on that insensitive “joke” that this coward made of a child with the Down syndrome…
    My name is : Pedro Martori,in Montreal, Quebec. Canada..easy to find on the teleph book…
    so I can personally reply to this dirty,coward attack on a decent, intelligent and capable american woman as Sarah Palin is !

    • Gerhard

      Dear Peter, I agree with you totally. This left wing smear campaign is unending just like the many frivolous lawsuits against Sarah Palin, one should read the book ” Guilty “, by Ann Coulter. These are the same people who have no christian values, they will abort a helpless baby but protest to stop killing baby seals and other creatures. God bless, Gerhard. Oh, by the way, I lived in Hamilton, Ontario for 9 years.

      • http://www.cubasi_kastrono PETER MARTORI

        Dear Gerhard, I can not be aware or informed on each of the topics or issues going on in the american Medias , so it is obvious I can’t reply to some of the questions hereby.I am a 100% for Sarah Palin, since the days she she was running as the Vice-presidential candidate. Though I am not an american citizen, I can foresee ,that the future of the Americas do not lie in the shoulders of fake americans as Obama but on the ones of those who love america, and moreover, for what America has stood up til now. Leftists all over this planet are just the same…lame, coward, resentful, and jealous and low life people.They can’t see honest,brave and straight forward perswons like Sarah of America Palin , get out there to fight with all her dignity and guts for what she believes is rightful and fair.
        The more these people try their low blows on her, the better for Sarah .!
        I am reading the book : “Going Rogue” , this is what these people should be reading instead of attacking blindly a person that
        has shown so many qualities as a politician and achieved what many others didn’t in their careers as politicians.
        Compared to Nobama…her C.V. is full of achievements and great ones on top of it. Trans-Alaskan Gas pipeline is one of them.
        I am not aware or do not get all the news from the USA, so I am not currently informed about the issue “eyes” is asking me to reply over here.I mean the question by “eyes “:
        Peter, what is your stance on Bob Marshall’s statement about disabled children being the punishment for an abortion?
        I don’t even know who that guy Marshall is…
        but the issue and the question on that topic was not put in a clear manner ,so I do not know what is his point on that.
        One thing is clear and known all over this continent and it is the stand where Sarah palin stand on abortion!

        And if these people were even slightly intelligent enough, they would try to stand on that issue with the ANTI-ABORTIONIST GROUPS.
        I DO NOT WANT HERE TO START ANOTHER THREAD, BECAUSE THAT ISSUE IS FOR THE wESTERN WORLD A CRUCIAL ONE…TO HAVE MORE BABIES AND LESS ABORTIONS …OR BE OVERWHELMED BY THE NUMBERS OF TALIBANS…!
        so right now it is not even a question of christianity…but of counter the numbers of the ones that wish to conquer and master the world…the fanatics of a pseudoreligion called islam…!
        which is noting but a plaggio, a copy of the two religions that existed prior to year 650 A.D or 650 years later of the birth of Jesus Christ .These people don’t see that menace coming.
        Neither that Nobama is a declared moslem…or that these people agenda is social-political movement that wishes to conquer the world by the bias of a pseudo-religion.

      Peter–Maybe Sarah should have said her family was “off limits.”

      • eyeswideopen

        Claire, maybe she shouldn’t have pulled them out of school and drug them around on the political trail for three months exposing them to the hard ugly world of politics. She used her family, putting them on stage at every opportunity, even risking her babies hearing from flying too much. She is selfish.

  • JD Maples

    Love Sarah Palin,have her book. Would vote for her. But I am starting to wonder about her as the press. Bush,and Obama are/were attacked by the media (both sides of it) Left and right, every other day. Anyone think she is up for that?

  • Bob D.

    Family Guy’s attack was not on Sarah Palin. It was a direct attack on Trig. A young man, not in politics, with a disability. He does not deserve this and it was a tasteless and cowardly act to use the platform of Family Guy to do so. This is just wrong.
    Sarah Palin is a mother 1st and a Politician 2nd. When Rush made the reference to this disability it was offensive and wrong but it wasn’t an attack on Trig. When Family Guy attacked her son she did what any responsible mother would do. What would you do?
    None of this has anything to do with politics.

    • American Citizen

      Any mother will tell you that if you attack any of her children, it’s like an attack on her. The writers of that program know this. Men love their children, yes, but it’s not the same as bearing them under your heart.

      • Joe H.

        American,
        lease don,t try to tell me I don’t love my kids as much as my wife!! I was in there in the delivery room for a c-section and I held two of them before her. I have given my all for my kids and don’t regret a thing. I would most assuredly die for my kids and I have no doubt!!!!

        • libertytrain

          Joe – I have to say, my husband would definitely agree with you on that one. Many men would.

  • Pat

    I have a disability. It is time for people to realize that by not poking fun at us, you show your own lack of knowledge at just how set aside you make us feel in setting us apart to be “protected”. That is exactly what Sarah is doing to Trigg.

    When is the last time a cartoon series acknowledged a person with a disability in any context? Family Guy actually included us as, not as if, visible human beings able to laugh and be laughed at just as the rest of you without disabilities. Please DO treat us normally. Quit whining for us you sniveling — and let us fight our own battles!

    • Jana

      I don’t know what kind of ‘disability’ you have, but I have a niece that has severe disabilities and it embarrasses her when people even stare. She hardly leaves her house. She has a sharp mind, but her body and speech are slow so it appears to others that she is mentally slow also, although she is not.
      I can tell you for sure she does not want or like to have “fun” poked at her, and none of the rest of us like it either. It isn’t funny!!!

    • American Citizen

      Laughing at someone because of the disability is not the same as laughing at someone who trips over his own feet and falls on his tuckus. You should not want to be laughed at just because you are disabled. That is akin to a racial slur. It is not political correctness but an act of cruelty.

  • Dana

    I watched the Family Guy episode in question, and the ultimate point of that episode was that the girl with Down’s Syndrome was pretty much just like everyone else. Where was Palin when Family Guy made fun of everyone else? Where was Palin when they did the song and dance about Joe being in a wheelchair and abandoned by God? Where was she during the episode in which Peter was diagnosed as mentally retarded? It seems to me the only reason she’s livid about this episode is because of the comment “…and my mom’s the former governor of Alaska.”

    The thing Palin and her supporters seem to be forgetting is that Family Guy deliberately focuses on outrageous subjects like race, religion, politics, and disabilities in order to force us to think about them. Why DO we treat handicapped people differently? What IS the difference between a liberal and a conservative? Family Guy isn’t mocking people that are different–it’s mocking the stereotypes we as a society cling to, making us laugh at the stupidity of our own preconceived notions.

      Well, why don’t this Family Guy, doesn’t pick on Obama’s birth certificate for once? Or the so many issues that might bring to lighten up perspicacity and awareness…to use your argument… on Nobma’s family ????

      • Phil

        Peter, you can view President Obamas birth certificate online…. Also the newspaper birth announcment …. Pretty hard to forge the newspapers birth announcment… Unless you think 48 yearsago the newspaper knew that Obama was gonna run for president…and maybe you think the Fbi and Nsa were also in on the conspiracy… You do know he was vetted by the FBI and NCA…as are all candidates …only nutjobs are still insisting he’s not a natural born citizen ..google it if you can do it without help…

        • Blue

          Dear Phil,

          It appears you are naïve to the fact that the document could be a forgery and not be 48 years old. Ever heard of that?

          Anyway why don’t you click on the links below and learn something.

          The following video was on YouTube last week. The life/history/background of Barrack HUSSEIN Obama. I emailed it to friends and asked them to watch it before it got removed.

          The interviewer corrects HIM, instead of asking him to explain what he meant.

          Yet another one. Right from his own lips.

    • blackhat

      Are you kidding me? Do you really think Seth MacFarlane “deliberately focuses on outrageous subjects like race, religion, politics, and disabilities in order to force us to think about them”? It is called humor…Family Guy is not a social outlet to make us all aware so we can get in touch with our feelings you moron. And, if there is an obvious reference to your family members issues, I suppose you would sit back and feel the “good vibes” that will now come from the raising of “important social issues” (said in a singsong voice.) And, eyes don’t even talk to me…

    • American Citizen

      You missed the point, because she claimed the former governor of Alaska as her mother, it was a slam at Sarah Palin. That comment could have been left out. It was turned into a political moment, totally unnecessary.

  • http://att&tuverse Roscoe

    Making light of someone with any disability is wrong. Many fanilies up and down the spectrum have had children who has any disability cannot help the way the child turns out to be. I’m proud of her for taking this one to task about this foolishness.

  • Kathy

    It’s amazing how the “tolerant” left-wing liberals are so judgmental and intolerant of the right. If a right-wing conservative was “politically incorrect” about a left-wing liberal’s family member with Down Syndrome, it would make headline news on the Lamestream Media. The left hates and fear Sarah Palin so much because she speaks the truth. She threatens their sinful, intolerant ways.

    • Phil

      Kathy, I bet you were equally offended by Rush Limbaughs remarks about Chelsea Clinton and Amy Carter?… Of course you were…..

        Do Chelsea and Amy have a disability? I wasn’t aware.

        • Phil

          Jim, so Clinton and Carters children were fair game because they wernt disabled?..is that your argument?.. Personally I believe the cartoon was aimed at Sarah since the child in the cartoon was a little girl… And I still believe as long as she keeps using her children as political props she has exposed her children to this kind of treatment… I’ve never seen the show in question, but I’ve seen enough South Park and Simpson dhows to know they do this type of parody….you know what I do hen I find something offensive… ?… I switch the channel….by the way, Rush went on for years about how ugly Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton were..

          • jim

            Well Amy and Chelsea aren’t cute. Is that the worst Evil Rush Did? Comment on there looks? I know the Bush girls caught flack also. I would prefer all the children were off limits, but it seems thet’re not, even the disabled ones seem to be open game.

          • Claire

            jim–when a person lives in a fishbowl, they are all up for criticism. The whole world sees and knows what they do. The media/ talk show hosts go after them all, including the kids. Makes no difference who is in the White House. For the most part, I think the Bushes, Clintons, and the Obamas do try to keep their kids out of the public eye. They never thrust them out into the public eye on a continous basis.

          • eyeswideopen

            Claire, good point, we saw more of Sarah’s children than we saw of Chelsea Clinton in four years. We hardly ever saw Bush’s girls unless they were in trouble. But for three months, we saw Palin’s kids, every time she spoke. On Greta, during interview, her youngest daughter stated it was hard to catch up in school after the campaign.The campaign is for adults.

          jim,

When people watch her speeches and see that she is a normal intelligent person, it just makes her detractors look even dumber.
      Keep in mind that I would not even vote for Sarah, as I only vote for Libertarians, but, compared to most Liberals I’ve heard speak, Sarah seems like a downright Genius.

      No one in all Alaska would say the contrary ,except for lefties and dishonest democrats.
      What she stands for is precisely that : Honest ,responsible and caring policies..not politicking..as usual…the word CHANGE was hers first , prior to being used by the Nobama’s camp…

  • Earl, QUEENS,NY

    Sarah Palin has good reasons to speak out!! Of course, it’s like beating a dead horse to complain about the liberals’ cruel heartless jokes, or the double standard – what if conservatives told jokes about liberals or their kids? E.g. if they had a skit in which a normal healthy school girl is asked what her parents do, and she said: “My dad’s a teleprompter reader who gives speeches, and my mom’s a hospital administrator who dumps patients in Chicago”. IMO, we should give the liberals a dose of their own medicine!! Although we MUST NOT mock the handicapped or physically challenged, some humor is acceptable…..BTW, as to politicians’ kids, why didn’t the liberals show more sympathy for Chelsea during the Clinton years? It must’ve been embarrassing for her, as everyone, including her peers, knew her father was a womanizer and adulterer.

    I think Dana has the right idea. I mean, look at us. We are so divided. Everything is about either left or right, nothing being said about the direction of this bus we’re all on. Come on folks, we keep changing bus drivers but we’re not changing the direction of the bus. We do need leaders from the private sector….. Individuals with business experience and expertise, not more lawyers. Jesse Venture had it totally correct when he stated that to have the people who interpret the law, making the laws, that is a conflict of interests and should NOT be allowed. How many lawyers do you know that have ever run a real retail business and understand management, inventory control, daling with the public and real public relations let alone human resources skills. I don’t know a single one. It’s time to stop pointing fingers and get on track and look for real leadership for our country, not the lesser of two evils.

    • DaveH

      Ron,
      I’ve known some pretty intelligent Lawyers, but it is definitely a conflict of interest to have them creating laws. Of course they are going to lean to complexity so they and their buddies are guaranteed a living.
      Government can not run peoples’ lives as well as people can run their own. If people do not care enough to educate themselves to make the correct decisions about their own wants and needs, it is pure folly to expect some disinterested Government official to care and make the correct decisions for them.

    Didn’t Sarah Palin excuse retard jokes if it was used in satire?

    “”They are kooks, so I agree with Rush Limbaugh,” she said, when read a quote of Limbaugh calling liberal groups “retards.” “Rush Limbaugh was using satire … . I didn’t hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with ‘f-ing retards,’ and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there.””

    Every move he makes, every breath Obama takes is intended to ATTEMPT
    to destroy this great country of ours. They just don’t get it. They
    are going to find out what the American people are made of! We are
    going to take this country back. Put some SANITY back into our Govt.

        Eyeswideopen,

        Just glanced through these comments to take a break for a minute. I’m trying to work while I actually HAVE some work; so I copied a comment I made to this same question awhile back on another topic, because I don’t have time to rewrite it. So here goes!

        This is what Obama has to gain: by bringing down the infrastructure & by destroying the dollar, the economy (& everything else), it lays the foundation for him to rebuild the nation “in his own image”. When people lose hope & become desperate, they’re easier to control. When people have nowhere to turn but the government, then the government has control over the people (Tyranny) instead of the people having control over the government (Liberty). If you don’t believe that this can happen in this country & that this is just paranoia or conspiracy theory, then perhaps you should pick up a book & read how once “free” nations have lost their freedom!

        • Blue

          USMADGIRL,

          You gave a great explanation but it will be lost on those who have NO interest in learning anything but in effect, denigrating anything they refuse to accept. You are one of the INFORMED. Keep it up!

          • usmadgirl

            Blue,

            I know, but we all still keep trying, don’t we?!

        • Joe H.

          USmadgirl,
          You just went about two feet over eyes head!!!!

          • usmadgirl

            Hey Joe H,

            Obviously, that’s NOT a difficult task! I just keep hoping that some will eventually have a light go off & realize how freaking crazy the things they say sound to NORMAL people!

        • eyeswideopen

          usmadgirl, do you not understand what would happen in this country, if we go down? Anarchy is the word best used to describe it. You think he would want to expose his own children to riots, and mass killings? There would be nowhere to hide. He frankly doesn’t have enough money(gold) to be able to survive. This shows how convoluted your thinking is. You would have to a private security force, like Blackwater, lots of gold, and be so popular that the people wouldn’t hold you responsible. Which he isn’t. Hitler didn’t bankrupt his country. He took over in a time of depression. He did pick an enemy, the Jews, for everyone to hate, (similiar to what the Conservatives/Repubs are doing to the Dem’s) and created one party. Thank you for the insults, must be hard to control yourself. But then again you and your party do have the attitude that you are all knowing and superior to everyone, so it doesn’t surprise me. I do have a question, why did you and yours let this country get into such a bad situation? Becasue you were hoodwinked by the Repubs, that’s why.

          • usmadgirl

            Eyeswideopen,

            You bet I understand what IS (not would) going to happen in this country when we DO go down, because that is exactly where this administration is taking us with the speed of sound!

            What do you mean by “Obama wouldn’t have enough money (gold) to survive”? His administration of thugs has access to & control of ALL THE MONEY IN THIS COUNTRY including the GOLD or I’m sure that one of his “puppet masters”, George Soros or Andy Stearn would take care of him! He’s proven, with the way he’s spending OUR money like it was water, that he has no problem stealing from the citizens he’s supposed to protect. He’ll just use his power & sign an “Executive Order” to get whatever he wants. He had to publicly remind everyone today at the health care photo-op summit that he’s the president & had the audacity to tell McCain that “the campaign was over” when all he’s done for 2 years is campaign! His arrogance is nauseating!

            As far as exposing his children to “riots & mass killings”, maybe that’s what the “civilian national security force” (that he mentioned he would be organizing) is for, to protect him & his family or to control the people HE’S supposed to be protecting! All I know is that he doesn’t need it for military protection. We have an outstanding military force. He doesn’t need it for securing our borders. We have our border patrol & he’s obviously unconcerned about our borders anyway!

            Does it not concern you that every single thing that Obama is trying to ram through instills absolute power & control over the citizens?

            Do you REALLY need the government to tell you what you should eat, drink, wear or what doctor you can go to & what tests or treatment you can or can’t have, how many children people can have, what you can drive, what temperature you can set your thermostat, what kind of light bulbs you can use, what you need to weigh, what salary private companies can pay their employees, what banks can do or which ones they can close, who gets loans & who doesn’t, what car dealerships can stay opened depending which party they supported, how much money you can make or whether you should live or die? I DON’T! I only need the government to do exactly what the Constitution allows it to do – defend & protect us & our borders!

            I didn’t vote for this radical, progressive psycho, but I’m having to live with the consequences because of the people who did & I’m pissed!

            WE didn’t LET ourselves get into this mess! The controlling Progressive House & Senate, along with “Barney, the big gay boob” got us into this mess! Funny how the economy was going along just fine until the 2006 elections & Barney told Bush “Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac are doing great”, forcing them to give every poor sucker & their pets a loan they couldn’t afford, then it all started to unravel! Bush tried to regulate them, but he had a DEM majority running the show. Oh, but I forgot, EVERYTHING that’s happened in the history of the world was Bush’s fault. For the “left” to think he’s so stupid, they’ve certainly given him god-like credit for things. He can even control hurricanes!

            What nerve you have to say that Republicans have “picked Dems as an enemy for everyone to hate like Hitler did the Jews”. Not Dems, but Progressives are the ones destroying the country, NOT Conservative Republicans! Do you actually think Obama likes Christians & Jews? He said in his own words that he would stand with the Muslims & you know how much they “love” us!

            I don’t remember “insulting” any particular person! The majority of insults I’ve seen here are from you, Denniso, Norm & a few other pooh slingers.

            I’ve never said that I was “all-knowing or superior”, but I do have enough common sense to discern right from wrong, good from evil & truth from lies or liberty from tyranny. Progressives completely disregard our Constitution & everything it stands for & degrade everything good & decent & frankly, it disgusts me! I can’t understand how anyone with even an ounce of common sense can come to the conclusions or execute the unconstitutional things that Progressives do. Nobody in their right mind would want government control or universal ANYTHING! Nobody but the utmost fool would want to turn a free, capitalist Republic into a Socialist nightmare!

            Do you realize how many people have come to this country to ESCAPE the very things that Obama is trying to implement in our country? And YOU think CONSERVATIVES have caused the problems? You need to wake up before you find yourself having to stand in a soup line with us “trouble-making” Conservatives!

  • Blue

    I’ve followed a few of these discussions, having recently “discovered” them. Those I’ve gone to, NORM has been there and has ALWAYS been on the wrong side of the issues. I have to wonder whether he is an Instigator or just plan ignorant.

    The incompetent, leftists, left wing liberal Democrats, whatever they’re called, who find religiously watching “Family Guy”, a moronic cartoon, enlightening… who are they? I believe they are in our presence right here and we are seeing exactly how they think.

    I’m sorry to say that no amount of talking or facts will EVER open the eyes (eyeswideopen?) or change the minds of these people. You can’t see the light with your eyes closed. You can’t hear the truth with your hands over your ears.

    This country is in trouble because of people like this. I really hope we can recover, BEFORE it’s too late.

    • eyeswideopen

      Blue, I don’t watch cartoons, what is on this site is funny enough. But if you are so upset, contact FOX and complain.

  • vanman

    If your watched it, it was funny. Played by an actress with down’s as well. When a late night show had on the night of the State of the Union address, a rework of Obama’s speech tackling the issue’s simply saying we’re f#%$@#, that’s funny too. I don’t care what side of the aisle your on, if you can’t laugh at yourself and situations, you don’t belong in leadership. Get over yourself. I liked Sarah Palin and would have voted for her until her exploitation of her daughter’s pregnancy, and now her thin skin on something this trivial.

  • Joe

    I usually don’t reply to these things, but I just don’t know what prompted me to this time. I read ALL of your replies (which I never do) becuase they were intriguing, to say the least. I went back to check my other emails, and the very next email I received was a forwarded one, which I normally would glance at and delete. Once again, I was prompted to read the whole thing. It was entitled “Used vs. Loved” (in case some of you also received it). There was a message toward the end that (to ME) sums up everything this issue, and most issues that plague us today. It states: “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits they become character; Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” Take heed to these words; study to understand them. One more quote: “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” Oh, one more, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!” LOL!! Ahh, I love that movie. Have a great day, everyone!

  • Rod

    Issues of this kind are NOT triial! Reason: They are meant to destroy
    a persons right to privacy. Laughing at yourself is one thing, Laughing at a member of your family is quite another! Sarah is a great lady and has taken nasty remarks from the radical left meant
    to destroy her as a person and a possible candidate for public office.
    The radical left have no amunition so they resort to name calling and
    I would like to see what the response would be if people from the
    conservative side starting the same kind of nasty talk about Obama’s
    family! I don’t see Obama making any statements against this stuff
    comming from the radical left of his party! The reason: He dosn’t have a decent bone in his body!!!! His agenda is very plane to see,
    He is after SOCIALISM! The American people are on to his lies and
    we have a plan of our own- – - VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

  • Lee

    So the entirety of Liberal Democrats is represented by Family Guy? Give me a break. Just say what you mean to say, Family Guy made a joke that offended you. Directly linking a goofy cartoon with a broad group of people is idiotic.

    Furthermore, all you people who keep saying “liberal this” and “right wing that” are the reason this country is as screwed up as it is. It’s almost like you are too ignorant to see there are other choices. Lemmings all of you! Those are simply terms on opposite sides of the same coin….politicians that screw you over. Yet you truly believe that your side some how screws you less. Wake up. Both sides are equally hypocritical and you are just as dumb as the other side due to your inability to think for yourself. A damned cartoon is not a political debate.

    Its just a show. You dont see anyone complaining about the kid that was petting Brian and he got pissed and bit the kids, arm.

    Not to mension that there was an episode with Bill Clinton naked and he aint whining about what they turned him into.

    You sure didnt grow up with a sense of humor like the girl who played the downsyndrome kid in the episode. I can see your kids will turn out to be like you, with no sense of humor

    • Joe H.

      Animelover,
      When you talk about remarks not causing harm read what I’m about to post. We have a group here that wanted to open a group home for some mentallt handicapped kids in our county. When one guy heard about it he turned into a raving maniac about how “those people would come in in the night and kill honest people in their sleep!” he got quite a following until a little girl with downs sent him a letter in her own hand that he was welcome to come to her home and have supper with her and her family and see that she and others like her were not the bad people he believed them to be. she asked him to send his answer to her. he did and he went. He lost all of his followers except a few die hards and the house was opened. To this day, I love that little girl as if she was my own daughter and she always gives me a hug as she has known me all of her life and used to ride my sons bus. I have lost track of her lately as she was mainstreamed and my son wasn’t. I guess the point I’m trying to make is that just stupid remarks can make wrong thoughts in the peoples minds come to the surface and cause them to be acted on. and you think these remarks are non-hurtful?

      • eyeswideopen

        Joe H, what were you doing, all these years when people were denigrating the blacks and calling them Nig gers? How about those who call the Mexicans, Wetbacks,were you trying to stop that hurtful speech? Were you complaining to the networks, when comedians were making fun of them? Did you complain when they showed your President as a monkey? No. and guess what, we do have freedom of speech in this country and much as we sometimes don’t like what is broadcast, printed, or spoken, fact is, it is a freedom to cherish.

        • libertytrain

    It’s also funny.

  • Sweetness4Rock

    Obviously Family Guy bends over. Over the years I’ve noticed it getting worse. Now we have a homo-sexual babies, insults to America with pedophile war veterans wrote by overall sell-out idiots. It’s jacked up and people defend Family Guy. Wait until you’re insulted…OH WAIT!!!…We all were when Peter Griffin said, “F*** You America!”….. you don’t remember? Well, I do. The Simpsons would get smashed if they even implied anything that’s now in Family Guy… They would be obliterated, because they don’t bend over for our current administration like Family Guy. To think that there’s people that still give Family Guy ratings, I bet Osama Bin Laden just got their box set… hell, he probably writes a couple of the episodes for them.

    • Sweetness4Rock

      I don’t really think that Osama Bin Laden really does that but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be surprised. I think that Barack Hussein Obama does though. Sorry, I had to clear the air.

  • eddie47d

    Dave H. I thought you were one of the more rational ones on this sight. Norm does get carried away,but you sure bit on his hook. Please don’t call Sarah a genius,we both know she’s far from that. Never have watched Family Guy but I don’t like the Simpson,but my son loves it..Go figure! Maybe it’s just generational. Then ther’s Peter Martori who dragged Obama into it. This site wouldn’t be “normal” unless Obama was dragged into every equation. Peter brings up abortion and the Taliban in the same breath. I guess he’s saying we need more cannon fodder (soldiers) for his coming wars. What a reactionary! Thanks Lee 2:24pm,alittle normalcy is nice. I almost forgot how Rush use to berate Amy and Chelsea but he’s a Republican “leader”.

    • Sweetness4Rock

      Well, I think why Obama gets dragged into everything is just like how Bush was blamed for everything. From the point when Bush was first elected to when he left the White House he was blamed for everything both politically and personally. When somethings wrong, accountability is demanded by most people… so the person at the top of the chain of command of the current administration is looked at. Only this time it’s different, most people that are mad can bring Obama as the president himself… not his administration but Obama because he looks into the cameras right at us and lies… and we prove it over and over again. So, that’s why I think Obama’s brought into every coversation.

    As a person who’s job it is to transport special needs children to and from school, one thing I can tell you about their parents is there is a special, powerful kind of love they have and they are VERY protecive. For some of us it’s “just” a cartoon, or satire, for others it is a major insult. Maybe after the Dem smear machine worked over their pregnant daughter and a major late night entertainer took a shot at the other daughter, when their disabled son was the butt of it, maybe the family did have a chip on their shoulder, for using them to get at her.( just a thought from the driver of the short bus.

      jim,
      Thanks for what you do, it’s not an easy job but it does have it’s benefits. like when one of the little ones look up and say thank you!! Or when you see one of them mainstreamed and go further than they said they could. God Bless you and ALL of THEM, too!!!

  • Allan

    Regarding Sarah Palin, it is clear that the more people diminish her, the more popular she becomes. Frankly, it would be a breath of fresh air to have a common sense, self-made person without the usual political obligations in the White House. I think Sarah would stand up proudly for the United States.

    Politics today still boil down to this in my mind: Most Americans are moderates. The fringes try to push the moderate base in their direction, but the base is too broad. It may oscillate every 4 or 8 years, but thankfully it always finds equilibrium again. We will see the adjustment in November. Sales of “Survival Guide for Liberals in a Moderate Society” will pick up.

    Thank you, JOE, for the quote about character…If I have to climb a mountain, figurative or literal, give me a companion with character, rather than an intellectual.

    • eyeswideopen

      Allan, and it will be funny, if the Dem’s treat the Repubs the way they have been treated and the Repubs won’t get anything done either. How you treat people will always come back to you. Put more Repubs in office and we will still have the same problems.

So in a way your boy taught the Reps how to do it and the party that started it is having it done to them. You got your wish sooner than you thought.( How Dems treated the other party DID come back to them) and yes it is funny.

          Jim, you mean like Reconcilation? Since 1980 it has been used 22 times and the Republicans have used it 16 times. Probably by now the Dems have learned from the Repubs and what is good for the goose, is……

      • Allan

        I agree most politicians are self-serving, since we don’t have term limits or control rules of conduct. My point was that what keeps the economy regenerating (individual incentive) has to be protected. It is is somewhat better protected by conservative politicians than liberal ones. The underlying debate today is individual incentive vs. entitlement. It is estimated that if taxes on the wealthy are increased to 75% or even 100%, it doesn’t pay for the services progressives desire. People perform differently and most want to be rewarded based on their performance. The competitive model in America creates envy, but its citizens are the most fortunate on earth. Take incentive out, and America can be faux Europe.

But, somehow you find yourself losing to the other players, who can protest, but cannot do ANYTHING about it.

        I agree Michael, we all should be able to choose… But face it, Family Guy is no longer a funny cartoon show that is on late. It’s a tool for dems. I used to love the show, border line of addiction. They bashed both sides of politics and I loved it. But now they’re just another tool… Like when MTV stopped being Music Television and became soap opera queens and pregnant teens. And to be honest, if Family Guy went the other way and used racist jokes to bash Obama…. well, they wouldn’t survive. An this is the last words of mine on the subject, I tired of typing the same thing over and over again.

  • charles

    What else can you expect from a show written by juveniles who plajurise from the walls of public restrooms. Mental midjets.

  • WTF

    Um, the actress who uttered the offensive line in “Family Guy” actually HAS Down Syndrome – and she had some harsh words for Mrs. Palin. That’s unusual, since people with DS tend to be very sweet and friendly, but this letter was not friendly. The actress made a point to say that HER mother didn’t carry her around “like a loaf of french bread” for the sake of publicity.

    Sarah does not get to decide, all in her own little Queendom, what’s appropriate in entertainment and what’s not. She doesn’t get to ream one person for using an offensive term and then excuse another for doing the same thing (see Rush Limbaugh’s “retard” tirade.)

    There’s no way this woman could be President. By the time she got done tweeting and Facebook-posting about everything that offends her, we’d be nuked off the planet.

    • blackhat

      • Claire

        I can tell you one thing. I would literally slap the sh– out of anyone that called my child a retard. And I wouldn’t give a dang who it was. What is right is right, what is wrong IS wrong. In fact, years and years ago my son was pounced by 5 boys. I sent my daughter in to help her brother. Well, guess what! My daughter lambasted the boys right along with her brother. One of the mothers stepped in, grabbed my daughter and smacked her on the face. And that is when I smacked that woman and I have never regretted it. These kids were about 8-9 years old, same age as mine. I will admit I was shaking like a leaf, the woman was bigger than me. Then the fathers came out, and it ended. Thank God, the fathers did not get into it! Needless, to say, it was a tough block to live on and we moved away after about a year. My kids weren’t angels but they sure were not as mean as those kids were. And I do hate to say this, but those kids went to public schools and mine went to a Lutheran school. But I had to teach my kids to take care of themselves. And I don’t think I was wrong since they have grown up to be decent people.

  • Blue

    ALERT!

    It appears that this site practices SENSORSHIP. I don’t mean editing inappropriate language.

    Yesterday, I wrote a post that included four links associated with Barrack HUSSEIN Obama. Two were of him speaking (In his own words) in video clips and two were of his life/background/history. One showed a site that had ALREADY been sensored and the other went into detail of his associations with Marxists, Communists.

    My ENTIRE post has vanished, as I’m sure this one will. How far does BIG BROTHER’S arms reach?!

    • libertytrain

      It’s been noted many many many times that sites like this frequently are automatically set to send to spam, posts with multiple links on them. It’s done not as censorship but to protect the reader. Try posting each link in it’s own posting and you may find a difference unless the link is “read” by the site program as a dangerous virus type/bad cookie type site (I don’t know the correct words), you shouldn’t have a problem. These kinds of things are not meant as censorship but a way to try to protect the reader’s computer from harm.

    • usmadgirl

      Blue,

      Same thing happened to me a few days ago. ‘Eyesstapledshut’ had asked me to show just ONE black person (other than policemen) that attended Tea Party events. I did butt-loads of research & posted the sites, submitted it & it just disappeared. I thought I’d somehow deleted it. Now ‘eyes’ probably thinks there WERE no black people at the Tea Parties. Needless to say, I was not happy!

      I think it was due to all the links because I had at least 7. I just wish I’d saved my comment & the links (which I do sometimes), but of course I didn’t save the one I really needed!

        USMADGIRL,

        It’s a shame that you lost the one link you hadn’t saved but maybe, if you can recall the steps you originally took in getting to it, you might be able to do some searches to locate it again. As for the vanishing of your entire post, I’m not so sure what LIBERTYTRAIN said is correct.

        Prior to making my above post, I had an add on post to the one that vanished and that added post appeared at the very bottom of all the postings here with the main post having vanished. In response to that happening, I wrote the above post and a short time later, mysteriously, my original post appeared with my follow-up, in the original follow-up position (which is approx. mid-point in all the postings here). Does the software that runs this site have the ability to “Think”? I believe not. I believe the individual who removed my comment in criticizing the actions taken in censoring, decided to do a restoration, to make it look like I’m having hallucinations.

        If you believe that this site like any site would NOT have an “infiltrator” in it’s operations, then you have got to be naive. Everyone does NOT have the same exact beliefs. That’s why there are so many postings on these site. Otherwise there would be one or NONE.

          From what I can tell, if a post didn’t automatically post within a very short time, things go to spam, or a place where they can be moderated -at least that’s what happens on my own Web sites – I use WordPress – and that’s where I’d noticed the multiple links problems….(my sites are art related and a local scenic site and I get a lot of junk in the comments, mostly spam and the others needing my approval) On my website I usually don’t ever look at it long or often, maybe once a month or so – to me it’s the last thing I’d waste my time on – I don’t really care about spams or comments needing approval … On this website they probably have someone that glances at the spam, and also glances at the stuff placed in moderation and determines the rest from there when they have time to do it – can you imagine how long it would take just to zip through all the comments every day…ridiculous amounts of time. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it….

          • usmadgirl

            Libertytrain,

            Thanks! As I just told “Blue”, I used only reliable sites. I was just “sympathizing” with his dilemma, but I wanted to let him know that in the entire time I’ve been on this site, I’ve never had my comment just disappear & thought it might’ve been from the large number of sites I posted to prove a point to “eyesstapledshut”! Normally, it just says “waiting for moderation”!

          • libertytrain

            usmadgirl – you’re right about the waiting for moderation stuff. I forgot about that – it happened to me once a while ago, but you know, not all is perfect out here in Internet land (after all, it was given to us by Al Gore!) so flukey things happen all the time -

          • usmadgirl

            Libertytrain,

            Now that’s funny! Gore is such a “shining credit” (with his “invention of the internet” & “global warming”) to my great state of Tennessee – NOT! It’s right up there with him winning the presidency in 2000! What a fraud!

        • usmadgirl

          Blue,

          Of course I don’t save all my comments, just the ones I have to do research on to make sure I’m not posting incorrect information (something that everybody should do) to use for further reference. I could go back & find all the sites I used but I have to work 16 + hours a day to survive so I was just saying it was annoying to lose it. I didn’t think “eyesstapledshut” would bother going to them anyway, so why bother wasting my time again!

          I wasn’t insinuating that your accusation about censorship was without merit. I was simply being sympathetic & letting you know that maybe we weren’t both crazy since it happened to both of us. Usually, if I have even ONE site attached, it comes up “waiting for moderation” or something to that effect, but this time, it just didn’t come up! I didn’t use any “dangerous” sites. They were legitimate sites: American Thinker, Newsmax, various Tea Party sites, Kevin Johnson’s site, etc.

          I also know the software doesn’t “think” & I’m certainly aware that without the different opinions, we would have no debate here. I was just letting you know that I’ve been posting on this board on a regular basis for quite some time & never had ANY comment disappear.

          I’m not a little “wimp”, but it wasn’t very nice of you to imply that I might be “naive” since you don’t know me from Adam’s house cat! I’m NOT naive! If you’ve read my comments, you should know that I’m very skeptical. I try to treat people on this site with respect until they attack me & I’m NOT saying YOU attacked me, but your insinuation is way off track! I think DaveH, JeffH, JoeH, American Citizen, George, Claire, Beberoni, Libertytrain, DDC, & several others can vouch for what I’m saying!

          • Claire

            usmadgirl–You got it. I’ll vouch for you.

          • usmadgirl

            Claire,

            Thanks for sticking up for me!

          • Claire

            usmadgirl–Anytime.

          • Blue

            usmadgirl,

            The naive comment was not directed at you but an in general comment. I used the wrong wording, should have used something like “if anyone” instead.

            I’m sorry I had you think I was attacking you, I wouldn’t. You are one of the few here who have their head on straight and really understand what is happening. I hope I’m half way in that league.

            Again, I’m sorry and keep doing a great job. Thanks.

            Blue

    To Norm: A person who runs for office and is in the spotlight is fair game, however their children are not running for office and need to be off limits. There may come a time when someone makes a comment about your family member(s) and will see what you do. Shame on anyone who choses to go after a child who has done nothing wrong to them and cannot defend themselves.

  • http://Verizon.net Bud Grounds

    Jim, Joe, Alan: Thanks for sharing your comments. I believe anybody that has ever had contact with a family or child with Downs Syndrome; if they have any sense of compassion can see how wonderful they are. I worked with teenagers with Downs Syndrome who volunteered at the VA Hospital. They gave their best and I saw how proud they were to work with us and they were very efficient, didn’t complain and sometimes were very humorous. It made for a good environment for everyone.

    I think the person who said Sarah Palin showcased her child with Downs Syndrome doesn’t understand such a relationship and would suggest volunteering for Special Olympics to realize how special they are.

    • Joe H.

      Bud Grounds,
      I don’t know, I don’t think it would be a good idea for abnormal and a couple of the others here to volunteer as it would be subjecting some of the best mannered kids in the world to some of the most crap mouthed sensless people I have ever had the misfortune to read!!!!

  • Particle Woman

    Although this article has been over-posted, I do want to say that I got very tired (yawn) of the crass humor on The Family Guy,etc.. So I simply do not watch their shows anymore. They don’t get a dime of mine, and I don’t miss jokes & references made in poor taste. However, they do have a right to say it; it’s up to us The Poeple to decide which shows fail or succeed. If you take this filth to heart & are offended, boycott their advertisers, write FOX letters. DO SOMETHING.

    My youngest sibling has Down Syndrome. She is wonderful, and I thank God that she will never have a degraded corrupted callous relativistic soul like 90% of the American population.

    • Joe H.

      Amen and well said!!!!

  • Jessica

    I have a family member who has downs, I take care of him everyday. THe fact that Mrs. Palin is taking this so seriously is absolutely ludacris. Family guy pokes fun at everyhting and everyone, it is not something to be concerned about. Our country takes the media and telivision way too seriously. Why the hell does it matter? OMG! A cartoon on tv made fun of someone! Big friggin deal. Sarah has way too much time on her hands if she has time to publicly speak about a cartoon.

  • Joe H.

    Jessica,
    you obviously have not had to raise the child or it WOULD bother you!!! I only hope that family member is not exposed to you very much!!!

  • Joe

    Sarah palin thinks its funny to put down Obama, but now the shoe is on the other foot, when she takes offense at a cartoon’s slight. Boo-Hoo-Hoo, do we need a gun-toting crybaby running for prez.

    • Yandle

      Joe,
      Sarah Palin’s baby is not an elected official. It is being a responsible person to point out when someone (0bama) that is an elected official is trying to destroy the United States. If it had not been for our fore-fathers being “gun-toting” you would not have the freedom to be crying on this post!

      • Blue

        Yandle,

        Well said and on the mark. But I’m sure, Joe has his eyes shut and hands over his ears, so it will go right over his head.

    • usmadgirl

      Joe,

      I’m pretty sure Sarah doesn’t think anything about O-dumbo is amusing! She’s probably crying inside like the rest of us as we watch this evil progressive dictator & his Chicago thugs destroy our great country. He has no intention of representing any of us.

      Sarah isn’t a cry baby. She’s been literally tormented constantly for almost 2 years now. She’s defending her son who’s too young to protect himself! Unlike most politicians (especially progressives) she’s keeping her word to parents with “special needs” kids to defend them & do everything she can to make their lives normal.

      And, yes, we do need a “gun-toting” president in order to protect our second amendment rights! If it were up to O-dumbo, nobody would have a gun except him & his radical, criminal friends!

    Where is the sanity in the way everyone communicates in this blog? Most of these comments are hateful, emotional energies used to spit venomous responses. Everyone believes he/she is better and that he/she is absolutely right. Other than letting of steam here, what has everyone done to make this Nation better as individuals? These comments, for the most part, incite separation and hate. What in the end is resolved?

  • RickyD

    What ever happened to compasion in this country? The problems can be found to stem all the way up to the top. If a Republican would have made simular comments they would have been forced to resign. Furthermore I have never and do not ever plan to watch Family Guy or the Simpson’s. Two of the most rediculous shows not too far behind is South Park. Maybe I deal too much in reality and I still have a sense of humor. The person that wrote the script for that episode of Family Guy should be fired. The editor that let it get by…fired. The producer…fired. When it gets down to it who is really the ones that are mentally challenged? As much as I follow Fox I say sue them Sarah. This one is way too personal and to the point…not funny at all. People get a life!

  • RickyD

    If these people are upset and venomous it’s because that is becoming the way of life in America…Have you checked lately? The very fact that supposedly grown adults sit on the couch with a bag of chips and a beer and laugh about the Family Guy tells the story. Not to mention I bet some of you have never been in a situation where someone made fun of you over a network where thousands of people see and hear it. GROW THE HELL UP. One day when you grow up maybe you can do something positive to fix the hurt that people cause to others. PS-and why are people upset??? Maybe it’s because there is no common sense in America.

    • crook

      Why are you so BUTT HURT? Dont you have a funny bone? I have muscular dystrophy and slup forward and have to use a stick to stand up straight. Feel free to make fun of me!

  • crook

    Really! I love Sarah and her retarded son but I watch this show and it appeals to my less than apathetic warped sense of humor. That is why I watch it. Dont take these things personal. It is like a comedian who makes fun of people. It is the highest form of flattery! I must confess that I missed that episode! Did they referr to him as a mongoloid or what.

  • http://www.bigbooty.ws Amit @ Big Booty

    Sarah Palin is a joke.. I dont know how people vote for her. Gosh, so scary i hope she never becomes a president or get more big authority..

  • Sarah Palin must die.

    Funny, this psychotic, retarted whore gets offended for a joke on Down syndrome, but has no issue with slaughtering innocent animals and joking about it. Ban this crazy woman from America or put her in jail, now.
