(Newser) – Now that Family Guy has taken on Trig Palin, can a demand by his mom on Facebook that the program be yanked be far behind? The popular TV series waded into treacherous waters yesterday with an episode in which a bossy female character with Down's syndrome dating Chris Griffin mentions that her mom is the "former governor of Alaska." Since the program is on Fox TV Sarah Palin may simply consider the reference harmless "satire," as she did when Rush Limbaugh talked recently about "retards."
