Yes I will admit that I am a big Family Guy fan. This past Sunday was a great episode and I knew it would piss off Palin. You go Seth!
Bristol Palin has responded to this:
“When you’re the son or daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet. Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny? Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks. – Bristol Palin”
Pretty rich stuff coming from the family that lives for political exploits.
The question though is what will Palin do? Will she go after the network that airs Family Guy. Oh wait! That would be the same network that employs Sarah Palin. Will she tell her employer to get rid of one of their top rated programs? I highly doubt it. So again – kudos to Seth. This was pure fucking genius.
