In one of the most eye-opening focus group panels I’ve seen handled by Frank Luntz, it was on the issue of ‘Family Guy’ cruelly mocking Sarah Palin and her Down-Syndrome son Trig, as well as her appearance on O’Reilly’s show to speak out against the show for poking fun of a toddler with disabilities.
Luntz paneled an equal amount of democrats and republicans and scaled their responses. Luntz displayed the chart in motion as the episode of ‘Family Guy’ plays.
Not surprising democrats found the joke appropriate and hilarious, as their line escalates. However, republicans gave the show low numbers. Now, I am not going to criticize their taste in humor. But it is noteworthy the difference of opinion among party lines.
However the shocking part is, as video plays of Palin defending her child on ‘The Factor’, the democrats lowered their approval as the republican numbers increased. The contrast is stark. Even Luntz was aghast.
Instead of looking at the situation of a mother defending her child, the democrats saw it as an opportunity to knock the politician: Sarah Palin.
I would bet all my life savings the if Sarah Palin were a democrat, both democrats and the republicans would look to Palin’s petition against ‘Family Guy’ approvingly.
Albeit, not all the democrats found the humor tasteful, but a majority did. It comes to show you how pathetically deranged the democrat party is when it comes to a conservative woman.
I get that ‘Family Guy’ mocks “everyone”, however their brand of humor is tasteless and vehemently anti-republican. I don’t recall a democrat being personally attacked in such a crude manner. Now the show is raking in a huge number of complaints for indecency.
I know Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove did voice overs for the show for a guest appearance to be shown later this year. Where are they rebuking what the show did?
And not all of the employees of the show created by ultra-left wing liberal Seth MacFarlane agreed with the Palin humor. Patrick Warburton, who is a cast member of the show, told the Washington Post:
“I know it’s satire but, personally, that [joke] bothered me, too…I know that you have to be an ‘equal-opportunity offender,’ but there are some things that I just don’t think are funny.”
