Andrea Fay Friedman is speaking out, defending her role on Family Guy from the likes of Sarah Palin and man, oh man, is she letting the FOX news commentator have it:
"My name is Andrea Fay Friedman. I was born with Down syndrome. I played the role of Ellen on the "Extra Large Medium" episode of Family Guy that was broadcast on Valentine's Day. Although they gave me red hair on the show, I am really a blonde. I also wore a red wig for my role in " Smudge" but I was a blonde in "Life Goes On".I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor. I thought the line "I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska" was very funny. I think the word is "sarcasm". In my family we think laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life. My mother did not carry me around under her arm like a loaf of French bread the way former Governor Palin carries her son Trig around looking for sympathy and votes." (Huffington Post)
The New York Times, for whatever reason didn't run the whole quote - thank you Huffington Post.
Ms. Friedman's got moxie.
