Sarah's been Palin'ed
Former US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has criticised TV show Family Guy for "mocking" her son who has Down's syndrome. Sarah Palin criticised by an actress with Down’s syndrome.
But I think that this is a great development. The character depicted in Family Guy was a positive role model. The reference to Sarah Palin could have been looking to the future when Trig is accepted for what he is, going out to dinner and being 'in charge'. Well done Family Guy and to this actress.
