Savannah, GA. Aw. Inside the Reality Distortion Field that is Sarah Palin's singular universe, Seth MacFarlane has hurt her feelings. Fox's sunday night episode of "Family Guy" included a scene where Chris Griffin (voiced by Seth Green) dates a fellow student with Down Syndrome, named Ellen (voiced by Andrea Fay Friedman), who has a line, My dad’s an accountant and my mom is the former governor of Alaska.
Silence is never a virtue when it comes to the former Gov., so Professional Victim Sarah (voiced by Sarah Palin) dashed down the hall of her new employer--which had aired the episode--onto the set and into the welcoming arms of the testosterone-challenged O'Reilly in order to unload. This world is full of cruel, cold-hearted people who would do such a thing, said Palin.
Based on some of her own political and religious beliefs, Palin is no stranger to 'cruel and cold-hearted' territory. But that's another story.
What Sarah didn't know is that the actor referenced above, Ms. Friedman, is not only accomplished voice talent, but a person with Down Syndrome. (Andrea also works at a law firm between acting gigs, and has done so for the past 20 years.) Moreover, she is an individual with a great sense of humor.
I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor. I thought the line "I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska" was very funny. I think the word is "sarcasm." In my family we think laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life. 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.
How's that pouty, hurty, thing workin' out for ya, Palin?
