I was enjoying not blogging about Tea Party Princess/Queen Sarah Palin-Quayle for an entire week, I believe it had been until just now, but the “Family Guy” brouhaha has inspired me.
I don’t watch television (Hello, my name is Robert and I’m an Internet addict), but apparently a recent episode of the cartoon show “Family Guy” has a female character with Down’s Syndrome state, “My mom’s the former governor of Alaska.”
Of course fucktarded perma“victim” Sarah Palin-Quayle immediately got onto Facebook to denounce the latest liberal Hollywood swipe at her and her fucktarded family. A “kick in the gut” she called it. How about an actual kick in the gut?
But seriously, I read Palin-Quayle’s actual Facebook entry on this “controversy,” and, as the wingnuts like to do, Palin-Quayle tried to assert that satire that seems to have been aimed at her actually was aimed at her poor little retarded boy, whom she did such a great fucking favor by naming him Trig. [Yeah, give a mentally retarded kid a retarded name — that’s sure setting him off on the right foot in what’s going to be a tough life, isn’t it? As are toting him around like a prop for political points and using him as a political human shield.])
Anyway, I just wanted to note that I’ve long written it as “Sarah Palin-Quayle,” in homage to the dumbfuck Repugnican (I know, redundant) Dan Quayle, who was King George I’s vice president and who thought that you spell it as “potatoe.”
I feel vindicated, because besides the “potatoe” thing, Quayle is remembered also for his 1992 attack upon fictional TV character Murphy Brown. (That is a TV show that I did used to watch, and I loved it.) TIME Magazine reported at the time:
…[The] vice president dared to argue last week in a San Francisco speech that the Los Angeles riots were caused in part by a “poverty of values” that included the acceptance of unwed motherhood, as celebrated in popular culture by the CBS comedy series “Murphy Brown.”
The title character, a divorced news anchorwoman, got pregnant and chose to have the baby, a boy, who was delivered on last Monday’s episode, watched by 38 million Americans.
“It doesn’t help matters,” Quayle complained, when Brown, “a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid professional woman” is portrayed as “mocking the importance of fathers, by bearing a child alone, and calling it just another ‘lifestyle choice.'”
Of course, these two incidents aren’t identical. Fucktard Dan Quayle seemed to not fully have understood that Murphy Brown was not a real person, and he is the one who picked the fight — with the fictional TV character. (If memory serves, the character of Murphy Brown, in a new episode that aired shortly after Quayle’s pronouncement, fairly hilariously responded to Quayle, albeit indirectly, if memory serves.)
In the more recent case, “Family Guy” drew the first blood, it’s true, but how presidential is it to be fighting with a fictional TV show — on Facebook?
I just don’t recall any member of the pantheon of great U.S. presidents having done anything like that…
I stand firmly by “Sarah Palin-Quayle.”
In her dumbfuckery, Sarah Palin-Quayle vindicates me constantly.
