There are so many things that are unfunny and plain offensive on Family Guy, I know I should just not even watch it.


.............but ...............

There is usually one joke in every episode that makes me laugh out loud, and that makes it worth the rest of it.

Right now I'm watching a rerun of an episode I've never seen, where Peter is obsessed with the song "Surfin' Bird," and it's making me laugh pretty hard.

BIRD BIRD BIRD! BIRD IS THE WORD!

I can't wait until Rush Limbaugh says he thought Family Guy was totally in the right and Sarah says that's fine because it's satire.

Turns out that the actress who did the voiceover in the Family Guy episode has Down Syndrome (and a rather prolific acting career). Turns out she also thinks Sarah Palin is full of shit. Imagine.

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.

It appears not only that Mr. MacFarlane is a political man, but a calculating one at that.

Someone needs to get her stick out of her ass.


That's gotta hurt worse than receiving a birthday telegram from Zinedine Zidane.

That's Corky's gf I shouldn't be old enough to know that but I am..

Her parents raised her very well, to have her own opinion and to speak her mind. Is Sarah going to take her on now?

Palin is good at one thing, resigning... She should resign from the spotlight, period.

I thought the same thing myself. Total set up. Well done.

Yes I think Gov Palin walked right into that one


by Vicky Iovine

Does Sarah wake up every day, reach for her specs, slip in her "Bumpit" and begin snorting around the media outlets like a truffle pig in search of the juicy fungus of persecution? It's like an itch that she scratches so often it has become a tic. Every slight is personal in the All About Me Universe of Alaska's Governor, Interrupted. Nothing is too random or private or just plain irrelevant for her to rush to Facebook with her righteous censure.

Just in case it wasn't clear from her book, Going Rogue, her skin is so thin that it's practically transparent. Nothing is her fault or worthy of private reflection. Let's face it folks, she and her family are pretty broad targets. If it's not her, it's her husband, her baby son or one of her daughters. None of us has a family above a dig here or a joke there, nor are we consistent examples of righteousness, but we are infinitely more relaxed about our imperfections. She wouldn't beg for a wedgie every time the class clown walked by if she weren't so delusional about her own perfection. Who can avoid, intentionally or not, taking a swipe at such a humorless and bitter prig? And who can fail to be bored blind (oh, God, I hope she doesn't take this as an attack on her own optical disability!)

I, for one, wonder why she chose to take on last Sunday's "Family Guy" as an attack on her little boy, Trig, who has Down's Syndrome. First of all, the character who was supposed to be representing Sarah's baby boy was a grown woman on a date. If Sarah weren't so myopic in her outrage, she might just as easily have taken the fact that the character described her parents as "the former governor of Alaska and an accountant" as a compliment.

What, Todd Palin, former "First Dude," prizewinning snowmobiler and North Slope oil pipeline manager, an accountant? Didn't Sarah recognize the erroneous inflation of her husband's education as a gift horse? No, because judging, condemning and calling for everyone's firing is much more suitable to her temperament.

In fact, it appears that she has a whole raft of people looking for statements, behavior or themes for her to identify and condemn. I'm willing to bet my DirecTV that she has never watched "Family Guy." Are you kidding? And miss "Desperate Housewives" and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians?" Not a chance!

On Facebook, she credited America's favorite baby mama, Bristol, with bringing the TV episode to her attention. God bless, Mother Sarah; in spite of feeling "kicked in the stomach" by the cartoon, she turned the repugnant experience into a teaching moment for her daughter: "Well, Bristol, how did it make YOU feel?"

Personally, I'd rather hear how Trig feels. At least he's justifiably uninformed (for his AGE, people--don't turn on me here!) and completely uninterested in seeking the worst in every "liberal" with name recognition.

Don't these Palins have real jobs? Or is that Sarah's job -- being humorless and vindictive for her Mad Hatter's Tea Party friends? As if the dormouse and the March Hare weren't enough to put a person off such gatherings. "Off with their heads!" she decries so consistently that she makes the Queen of Hearts look benevolent.

What if she actually were to become President? What an irritation it would be to have the Middle East, Haiti, global warming and a blighted economy distracting her from her meticulous search for the worst intentions in everybody. And who really cares about those big issues anyway? They're so complicated and so irrelevant to burnishing the image of our little Maverick.

Life is short, Sarah. It is delicious, shocking and flawed. It's your choice: Revel in it or bitch it to death. But if you insist on choosing the latter, please, keep it to yourself. Nothing personal.

A bit too harsh for my liking, but I agree on the general point that Palin's humourless and takes EVERYTHING way too personal.

I was

I watched some of a marathon of this show (Secret Life) last year because I was curious about it. It just doesn't seem very realistic to me, the way they all talk and some of the things they do..it's like Gilmore Girls on crack. Maybe it's just that I'm so out of touch with teenagers

NEW YORK – Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol will make her acting debut on the ABC Family drama series, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager."

The network says the 19-year-old will play herself on an episode scheduled to shoot and air this summer. It will deal with the consequences of teen pregnancy.

The network calls Bristol Palin the most famous teenage mother in America. She was pregnant as her mother campaigned for vice president. Bristol Palin gave birth to her son, Tripp, in December 2008.

The TV series focuses on the relationships between families and friends and how they deal with teenage issues. It premiered two years ago, and its cast includes Molly Ringwald and Mark Derwin.

Well, it's a cartoon with a talking dog and a talking baby. I'd say anyone looking for realistic was barking up a tree so wrong, it wasn't even a tree.
