    Family Guy offends the Palin family

    JUNEAU, Alaska Sarah Palin is lashing out at the portrayal of a character with Down syndrome on the Fox animated comedy "Family Guy."
    In a Facebook posting headlined "Fox Hollywood What a Disappointment," the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and current Fox News contributor said Sunday night's episode felt like "another kick in the gut." Palin's youngest son, Trig, has Down syndrome.
    The episode features the character Chris falling for a girl with Down syndrome. On a date, he asks what her parents do.
    She replies: "My dad's an accountant, and my mom is the former governor of Alaska."
    Palin resigned as Alaska governor last summer.
    Palin's oldest daughter, Bristol, also was quoted on her mother's Facebook page, calling the show's writers "heartless jerks."

    Meh. That's what Family Guy tries to do, offend people. Tasteless, yes, but the entire show is like that.

    I love Family Guy and as a rule love offending politicians. It's a win/win for me.

    Family Guy makes fun of everyone. This is not news.

    I wonder if Palin ever saw the episode where Stewie, Brian, and Mr. Goldman go back in time to the Garmen Invasion of Poland. They show a McCain/Palin button on one of the Nazi uniforms.

    Family Guy offends everyone at one point or another. I've been offended plenty of times. There's an easy solution, the remote control. But usually I'm laughing too hard to click the buttons.

    I'd be offended by how easily the Palins are offended, but I'm not willing to grant them that power.

    I think it's fine that one of the Palin daughters defended her brother.

    I would like the Family Guy more if it pressed more political buttons and fewer disabled buttons - I think they're jerks too.

    I usually don't watch them, the Simpsons or the Hills because after the first few seasons, I just got tired of watching the same song, different verse.

    I guess Veterans should have been offended when Peter gave Stewie a box to play in and Stewie got in it, rocked back and forth with a distressed look on his face and said look I'm an Iraq Vet in ten years!

    I saw that and laughed...then said hey wait a minute, then went back to laughing!!

    Of course I cannot expect Palin to be as thick skinned as a Vet.

    I love the show and watch it every night.
