'Corky's Wife' 1, Sarah Palin 0
So apparently last week on Family Guy, Chris, the large, oafish son of the Griffin clan, began dating a girl with Down's Syndrome. When he asked her what her parents did, she replied "My dad is an accountant and my mom is the former governor of Alaska."

Of course, Sarah Palin got her "you betchas" all in a knot and went on an Immediate Outrage Tour of any media outlet that respects her. In other words, talk radio and Fox News.

Unbeknownst to Sarah and her reactionary minions, the role of Chris's girlfriend was voiced by Andrea Fay Friedman, an actress who actually has Down's Syndrome. Back in the day, she was Corky's wife on Life Goes On. That explains the title of this post. What, you think I just walk around calling all females with Down's Syndrome "Corky's wife"? What kind of a monster do you think I am?

Ms. Friedman issued a statement, most of which was released by the mainstream media, which included:

"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."

However, most news outlets left out the best part, which is as follows:

"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."

HOLY SHIT! That's the best. burn. ever. I like how she said "French bread", knowing how much Sarah hates those socialist Frenchies. See, if I say that, I'm an insensitive asshole; but when a lady with Down's Syndrome says it, it's just the fucking TRUTH. Honestly, that comment is so perfect I jizzed my pants the first time I read it. Yeah, jizzed my pants. I'm not ashamed.

My one hope is that Trig eventually escapes the evil clutches of his mother and grows up to become as well-adjusted and viciously witty as Andrea Fay Friedman.

she is fully my hero this week.

Admit it dude, you want to bang Corky's wife.

Love her love her love her.

When Trig grows up, he's going to innocently say he's the son of the former governor of Alaska. And Sarah will be offended. At least as long as a camera is around, the hound.

@ian i don't know... she'll probably just say it was satire.

This adds to the long Republican tradition of getting into fights with fictional characters-- and losing.

The Score: People Who Have a Lick of Sense vs. The Rest of Us, 3-0.

Round 1:
Murphy Brown vs. Dan Quayle

The Fight: Ms. Brown's unmarried character chose to carry her baby to term and Vice-President and noted spelling champion Dan Quayle pointed to this as an example of loose liberal moral values. So she should have had an abortion and made the Republican wing-nuts really happy?

Winner-- Murphy Brown by a spud

Round 2:
Rev. Jerry Falwell vs. The Teletubbies

Analysis: Televangelist/Moralist/Scam Artist Jerry Fallwell points out that an obviously male Teletubby carried a purse around and is obviously a homo... wait, Jerry... how did you know he was male? Where the fuck were you looking at the crotch of a character on a children's show? Fucking pervert...

Winner: The Teletubbies by a pursestrap

And now this. As a friend of mine said, she obviously has no problem pimping out her son for her political-- and most importantly, monetary-- profit. The more she rants, the stupider she looks.

Couldn't have said it better myself....

I so did not realize she was "Corky's" wife. I loved her on that show - and I love her now. You go girl.

Johnny Yen, unfortunately, the more stupid she looks, the more her followers love her because she's "one of them."

She doesn't make them feel stupid by saying a bunch of complicated things they don't understand.

You know, I'm not a republican and I don't come from a republican family, but I can say this: once upon a time, republicans elected people like James Garfield, who was ambidextrous and could write simultaneously in Latin with one hand and in Greek with the other. He wasn't just educated; he was a show-off about it.

I blame Reagan.

I wish I was ambidextrous, I can barely even whack off with my left hand, forget about writing Latin.

Blogger I Wear Flops said...

Oh, and I am a Republican, but there's nothing I'd like to see more than Palin getting hit by a bus.

She's not good for anyone and I find it very hard to understand how anyone with even a shred of intelligence could take her even the least bit seriously.

It's one thing to know you're smarter than everyone else, it's quite another to just think it when it's not the case.

I'd give my right arm to ambidextrous
