Palin Once Again Uses her Children

Recently the comedy show "Family Guy" did a comedy bit that referenced Sarah Palin, which you can view below.

Now, this was bait for a reaction from Sarah to be sure. Why? Because Sarah has already proven her hypocrisy by posting a full on rant demanding Rahm Emmanuel, chief of staff of the White House be fired for his closed door comment last August, calling a plan by the Democrats "fucking retarded". He did not call anyone a retard, in fact he was calling the plan that they were talking about retarded.

Shortly after this was made public, Mr Emmanuel apologized, and true to form, Rush Limpdick went whole hog onto the airwaves stating he was going to call "fucking retards, retards" and he was not going to apologize for it.

When called for comment (you'll notice that someone actually had to make contact with Sarah before hearing anything about Rush using the word "retarded") Sarah, via spokesmouth Meg Stapleton stated that any use of the word was improper. Now, it shouldn't take me pointing it out that Sarah did not write a full on rant about Rush unapologetically calling people retards. She did not even personally chastise him, instead she later defended his use of it calling it satire.

Just so we are clear, according to the Sarah Palin thought process....Rahm calling a plan retarded ...bad! Rush calling people retards...satire!

So, bearing all that in mind, we come to the Family Guy episode. It was not that funny, but I have never been a huge fan of the show. I like some of the episodes, others not so much. I think that it mainly will depend on the mood I am in, but I recognize that it is a comedy show, built on pushing the envelope, just like South Park does. Neither show bothers me, I don't get angry at what they show even if it is something I don't like. Comedy is subjective. I've never been a fan of the Three Stooges either, but that doesn't mean that I don't recognize the work they do, and the enjoyment they give many others.

So, now people have been waiting for Sarah to react to this Fox Show "Family Guy" and see if she would take the bait or just allow it to pass by without comment. True to form, she could not just ignore it.

Here is her latest facebook posting;

People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make about an issue that begs the question, “when is enough, enough?”:

“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”

- Sarah Palin

Why does it feel like a kick in the gut to you Sarah, it is because you know that it was you who was being made fun of rather than Trig like you claim? Just like it is always directed at you and not your son, but instead of acknowledging that fact, you again use your child in an attempt to avoid looking like the fool we all know you are by being upset about being made fun of, instead you deflect that onto your children. You are a sick and deluded person who has no business having children since you are incapable of understanding that being a mother means protecting them at all costs instead of pushing them into the spotlight to absorb all the jabs aimed at you.

So instead of coming out and proving she is the hypocrite we all know she is, she instead has her daughter do it for her. So she proves not only to be a hypocrite, but also one who will willingly use her children, all of them, any of them that happen to be in front of her at the moment, again and again and again.

This is a COMEDY SHOW and as such it is much different than Rush Limpdick going onto the radiowaves calling people retards (which by the way, was not satire, in any way, shape or form).

This is hardly a surprising reaction from her, and it is even less surprising that she doesn't have the balls enough to stand up and make this statement herself, instead once again using one of her children to take the brunt of the reaction. It is even less surprising that it is Bristol who is the one stepping up to the plate to show everyone that she is truly mommy's little protégé, and is happily and willingly ready to step into mommy's naughty monkeys. (Boy Levi did you ever luck out by not getting married to this one....yikes is all I can say about what you might have been subjected to for the rest of your life, married to a mini Sarah).


  1. I wonder what "Bristol" thinks of Sarah Silverman's comedy routine at TED.


    When will Palin realize that she cannot win this battle? It is one thing to admonish your friends, acquaintances or co-workers for using insensitive language as a joke or an insult. It is quite another thing to make these pronuncements to the whole world on facebook. Of course this is just a very public dare and Palin (or RAM) is upping the ante by using Bristol as the surrogate. Hmmm - sort of like babygate in reverse.
    By the way, where is Todd in all this? Or is it up to the womenfolk to defend the children.

  2. I wonder will they ever start making 'funny' shows about Sasha And Malia Obama?

  3. Anon 6:57, "they" make plenty of fun of their father and mother, no holds barred. I think they prefer it that way, they don't use their children as shields. The Obama's do what any good political family does, keep their children away from the nosy public eye. In Sarah's case, she shoves them into our faces.

    I think perhaps, also you probably make comedy reels of gold regarding the first daughters in your sick little head too.

  4. AK Sandhills,

    As we've all come to see, Sarah Palin had decided that she and only she is 'the decider' on who can use the term 'retarded' and be considered funny.

    She is easily offended and even easier to bait into proving her hypocrisy on subjects.

    As for Todd, well he's too busy right now with his prep for the Iron Dog to care much about this stuff, but if he wasn't, then I'm sure that he'd jump into the fray alongside of Sarah and Bristol, just like he did when they lied about Willow and the baseball game with regards to Letterman (she wasn't at the game with them).

    Eye, thanks for the bigger font...much easier to read...
    Uh yeah, we are to believe that Bristol "Yeah" Palin wrote this...uh riiiiiiight!
    I guess she HAD to say it was Bristol or look like the complete hypocrite that she is...in view of the limballs thing...lol! What a dumbass! What a Retard!!!

  6. Anon 10:54 (Feb 16 2010) you are probably the one with a "sick little head" living in some "RETARDED" parallel world if you think that it is right to make fun of a child because of the parent's supposed "stupidity". You cannot even begin to understand the irony of the statement made but immediately see some sort of perverted twist. Not a very confident indication of your thought process...but carry on as you will...I stand by my statement and I am out..CHEERS!

  7. The desperate desire to make this about Trig and not Sarah is very transparent.

    Eye...Hey you got Trolls!!!
    Awesome! Know your doin' somethin' right :)

  9. Sarah named her child after his disease.
    Downs = Trisomy G
    “TriG baby”
    Trig Palin

    What a rotten thing to do to a child. She must have known what “TriG” meant because she’d had tests while pregnant and learned about the disease. She uses her kids as props. She’ll never get enough attention.

  10. I've heard that suggested numerous times, and sadly hope that it is not true.

    I agree with her using the kids as props. She has shown that she is consistently willing to use her children for whatever reason suits her at the time. I cannot for one moment imagine doing that, but then again, I cannot imagine doing 90% of what she decides to do.

  11. Palin let her kid answer for her on the Family Guy issue because she obviously is afraid that Fox might fire her if she complained about a Fox show, just as she was afraid to complain about Rush and his use of the word retard. She's such a hypocrite. You Betcha!
