Y'all know what I think of Sarah Palin and I have been trying, for the sake of my blood pressure, to avoid talking about her idiocies. The latest ignorance really got to me sooooooooooooo here we go . . .
How low can Sarah Palin go? She went ballistic over a episode of "Family Guy" because they used a Down's syndrome character and made fun of her (Palin). Excuse me? If one is in the public eye, he/she is fair game as are all the people you drag along with you. The actress who played the role has Down's Syndrome and was upset about Palin's reaction and wrote an email to the New York Times who edited it -- the wimps. You can read the full, original letter here. I was impressed. I have seen Ms. Friedman act on various programs -- mostly on my favorite show, Saving Grace -- and she is really impressive. Y'all can see her response to Palin here as well.
And here is Seth McFarlane, creator of "Family Guy", on Bill Maher's show with his take on the whole thing.
I thought this video quite sane on the subject.
Bottom line is if you're that sensitive, Sarah, you had best drag your ignorant ass and your kids back to Alaska because it isn't going to stop. Even your fellow Republicans are getting tired of you -- you only got 6% of the vote at CPAC today.
Hopefully six months from now the burning question will be "Sara who?" and I will be incredibly delighted.
P.S.: As a handicapped person myself, I do understand what it's like and know that having a sense of humor is crucial for success. That Andrea understands this puts her ahead of an awful lot of people in this world.
