Palin vs Family Guy: Conservatives Are SUPER OBSERVANT

Posted in Observations by Captain Optimistic on February 19, 2010

This is just sad.  A conservative blogger trying to make sense of the searing burn Andrea Friedman dealt Sarah Palin:

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.

Did the creators of Family Guy go out of their way to find a Down’s Syndrome actress with an agenda?

An agenda?  Are you fucking kidding me?  She’s just observant (like conservatives clearly are).  Palin has been using her child to advocate against a woman’s right to choose, and to paint herself as a victim when convenient.  This actress called her out on it.

This isn’t the first time that they’ve made fun of the mentally handicapped (here and here) nor the first time they made fun of Republicans.

Oh no!  Not the first time!  They’ve made fun of everyone on that show.  It isn’t always funny, and it sometimes crosses the line, but its hardly scandalous.

It’s ironic that the Fox Network broadcasts Family Guy and they make so many jokes about the company that writes their checks.

Actually its common, if not expected.  Take the Simpsons, for example, who over the years have had many jokes about Fox explicitly.  What’s funny though is that this blogger is simply mentioning jokes about Republicans, not Fox.  So its at least refreshing to see a conservative who doesn’t pretend Fox is a neutral, professional provider of news.  Silver lining.
