The Family Guy Controversy

Sarah Palin is put in the position of having to defend her children once again. The FOX cartoon comedy Family Guy mocked her son Trig's Down syndrome.

Sarah wrote on her Facebook page that it was like getting "kicked in the gut." Trig's sister Bristol also weighs in on the page, calling the show's writers "heartless jerks."

The episode features the character Chris falling for a girl with Down syndrome. On a date, he asks what her parents do. She replies: "My dad's an accountant, and my mom is the former governor of Alaska."

Last night, Palin appeared on The O'Reilly Factor and said, "This world is full of cruel, cold-hearted people" and asked, "When are we going to say this stuff isn't really funny?"

Ironically Family Guy airs on Fox, the same company that now employs Sarah Palin.

Here is Sarah on Fox last night:



If you have not read it yet, here is Sarah Palin's Facebook post:

Sarah Palin: Fox Hollywood – What a Disappointment

People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make about an issue that begs the question, “when is enough, enough?”:

“When you’re the son or daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet. Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny? Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks. - Bristol Palin”

Comedians have always made louzy jokes about public figures. Best to ignore them, or you look like you politicize everything for another vote or two. I want to let Bristol know that she used the phrase "begs the question" incorrectly in her response to Family Guy episode. She meant raises the question. That's not what begs the question means. Google it to read more. Even if you don't allow this post, someone ought to let her know so she doesn't misuse it again. Thanks.

To be consistent, Palin should give Roger Ailes the ultimatum, either "Family Guy" goes or she goes.

To above poster Bob, no one really believes Bristol wrote the post.

Bob,

My thoughts exactly. Besides, Family Guy parodies or pokes fun at everything and everyone: Blacks, Jews, gays, women, Jesus, God, atheists, people with mullets.

Sarah Palin politicizes everything yet refuses to condemn Rush Limbaugh for using the word "retard" in a context saying all liberals are retards and that they should have a "retard summit" at the White House, saying he only meant it as satire.

She is nothing more than walking, talking manufactured outrage.

Why not ask the sponsors of Family Guy if they think it is funny. See if they like their product being associated with the attack on all special needs children. Then the Tea Party can decide if they like the sponsors product any longer.

Anonymous said...

The reaction of other special needs parents to the cartoon has been very positive. The point was the Down's girl was "just like the rest". Palin hasn't been a special needs Mom very long. Most of them want their children to be mainstreamed and treated as kids first. Having worked with all kinds of kids, they are all "special", "needy", "brilliant", and "stupid" at different times, no matter what their IQ's or their disabilities are. They are individuals first. Palin, as usual, is just using this for her own self-promotion.

Bob Woerheide criticizes and then lectures Bristol on her grammar…

“Comedians have always made louzy [lousy] jokes about public figures. Best to ignore them, or you look like you politicize everything for another vote or two.

I’ve read Bristol’s response and I can’t find the phrase "begs the question" that Bob Woerheide is concerned about.

I would not be surprised if the vile attitudes, like the people who support this innuendo of the Family Guy episode contributed significantly to this wonderful poll result.

Cathy said...

Sarah's friend, Rush Limbaugh, is the most culturally insensitive man on the airwaves. It is not satire, it is what he thinks. He has used the term in the past and may use it sparingly in the future, but he will use it again. And Sarah SHOULD say to Fox...it is them or me. Wouldn't that be interesting? I'm sure she won't...Fox would not pick Sarah.

______________________________

Classic fascistic or communistic deflection; the last refuge of those wanting to quell free speech.

Let's see: Palin CONSTANTLY shoves her whole family in our faces and never hesitates to reminds us that she has a special needs child (as if she is the ONLY one on Planet Earth with such a child). She claims that the media asking her questions and pointing out her record as governor and mayor amount to an assault on the First Amendment (WRONG!); wants Obama to fire his chief of staff yet makes excuses for Mr. Oxycontin and now wants to shake down her employer, News Corporation, for an apology.

Also, Family Guy never mentioned her or her kids BY NAME!

Sorry but three principles apply:

1: News Corp/Fox is a PRIVATE enterprise, beholden only to their shareholders. I thought Palin loved the corporatocracy. Well, Fox is one such entity and they are free to do what they want within FCC limits

2: That pesky First Amendment. Sorry but the First Amendment is not only for speech that kisses her ass but for speech that is offensive as well.

3: She is a public figure. She ASKS for such "satire" (her words excusing Mr. Ass Boil) when she throws herself at the spotlight. Stop seeking the limelight and stop shoving her kids in our faces constantly and the writers and comics will move on to another target.

If she hates free speech so much, she definitely has no business running for or being president and should move to Iran or Pakistan, where speech is monitored by state agencies. SHe should get the hell out if she cannot deal with people making fun of her. She attacks Obama and implies certain Americans are not part of "real America" and yet has the audacity to complain when a show satires her? Fuck her!

And that's that.

I actually watched the episode. They portrayed the Down's Syndrome girl as a functioning, independent young lady. The only issue Sarah has is that she said she was the daughter of the "former Governor of Alaska".

There was nothing negative said about special needs children, except when Chris called her out for being a jerk. Sarah needs to get over herself.

Cathy ande Elle Leet, you two would wish that she would quite Fox. You know all you have to do is ignore her and not watch her or read about her or anything.

As far as the guy that wrote that she is always shoving her kids in our faces, that is not true. It is the media and people like you that are always bringing them up. Furthermore, I have never heard her use the First Amendment as a reason to not answer questions regarding her time as Mayor or Governor, can you please cite where this was written?

"As far as the guy that wrote that she is always shoving her kids in our faces, that is not true. It is the media and people like you that are always bringing them up."

When she made her Death Panels LIE, she mentioned specifically her special needs child:

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."

When she did the InTouch magazine cover and photos, she was again shoving her kids on our faces, this time her single baby mama abstinence drama queen.

When she was shaking down Letterman, she used Willow Palin as the tool of trade, even though anyone with any intellectual grade of any consequence knew he was referring to Bristol Palin.

Lastly, Palin's misunderstanding of the First Amendment:

"If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations," Palin told host Chris Plante, "then I don't know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media."

I apologize for the error that she hated the First Amendment over her record. But, I stand by the FACT that she misrepresents the First Amendment to mean that she can attack her opponents and if anyone points out the fallacies in her claims, her rights are under attack. The chief reason of that amendment is a free press and they are free, within precedent and standards, to criticize a political candidate.


And that's that.

Handsome,

Thanks for sharing. I had no idea that she was trying to claim Obama's "death panels" were after her baby too. Wow! She has no conscience whatsoever.

I thought this would be appropriate for the particular blog. This is the quote from the actress that played the Down Syndrome girl on Family Guy. She has Down Syndrome, btw.

"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."

Do you think Sarah will apologize to this young lady?

Val said...

Palin always has to have the spotlight. She really needs to get over herself. She acts like she is the only person in America with a child with DS. Me having a brother thats mentally handicapped I was NOT offended. We have to learn to laugh at ourselves. Family Guy always makes jokes about blacks but you dont see Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson trying to Ban the show. There is more important to get mad than a cartoon show REALLY. and she wants to be president.

Its very obvious Palin does not have tough skin. She always want people to feel sorry for her...She needs to grow up.
I volunteer with kid and young adults that are mentally handicapped (SD, MR, and etc.) and they watch family guy and the simpsons and they comfortable with the disablity. They hate when people feel sorry for them.

Palin Populism
Sarah Palin takes on the pathology of the elites

Excerpts

Everyone knows that many stupid people possess degrees from fancy schools. Many smart people don’t have them. But in a big country, it isn’t easy to distinguish the wheat from the chaff. We are obliged to rely on things like academic degrees — and on the relative prestige of the institutions that grant them — to a much greater degree than was the case in the past.

This was evident in the comparisons that were drawn between President Obama and Governor Palin in the summer of 2008. His intelligence was never questioned. Hers was, repeatedly. Undoubtedly his two Ivy League degrees (from Columbia and Harvard) helped him. Her want of prestigious education hurt her: It made it easier for those who didn’t like her to say she was stupid. This presumption of stupidity was in the air before the interviews with Charles Gibson and Katie Couric. Those interviews resembled ambushes, orchestrated by people who were already convinced that she was a moron. Had Obama — who cherishes his teleprompter — been ambushed in this way, his intelligence would have been questioned too.

Degree fetish might be a necessary evil in a big country where there are lots of candidates for jobs and no easy way to rank them. But if in the future the only means of obtaining intellectual credibility in America should be through an accumulation of degrees, the country will almost certainly become stupider.

Degree fetish fosters a standardization of the intellect: Everyone is obliged to jump over the same hurdles to get their intellectual passports. If standardization has its virtues, particularly in the hard sciences, its promise in the humanities is much less obvious; Edmund Wilson was probably right when he said that literae humaniores have suffered from the Ph.D. fetish.

But the greatest evil of degree fetish is the arrogance it nourishes, an intellectual snobbishness that stifles nonconformity and homespun intelligence. Whitman suffered this condescension. So did Lincoln, and so did Reagan. Emerson, the Harvard man, said that Lincoln was a “clown.” Clark Clifford, speaking ex cathedra for the Washington establishment, called Reagan an “amiable dunce.”

Sarah Palin is right to question the degree fetish that leads us too casually to associate a prestigious education with intelligence and statesmanlike perception — and too readily to suppose that the lack of such an education signifies a want of brain-power. But her larger point is more important.

Palin Populism is not an expression of the resentment that stupid people sometimes feel toward the more intelligent, the antipathy of Swift’s Yahoo for his Houyhnhnm. Much less is it a form of conventional class warfare or share-the-wealth envy.

Palin supposes that our degree fetish has bred an arrogance she calls “elitism.” Lionel Trilling thought much the same thing. He pointed to the dangers of the ideals of our “educated class,” a class that had forsaken the habits of what he called the “moral imagination” for those of the social imagination — the imagination that seeks, not merely to understand society, but even to save it.

This is the pathology of the elites.

Governor Palin, in contrasting “American values” with the aspirations of “elite education,” warns us of the arrogance — and the moral “spinelessness” — that today’s higher learning too often fosters. Knowledge divorced from what Trilling and Gertrude Himmelfarb (following Burke) call the “moral imagination” is a dangerous thing.

Maleficus said...

Well, looks like the lil' nation-wrecker runner up herself has an issue with Family Guy now.. As if she didnt already.
Let's face it, Sarah Palin is less qualified to be president (or vice president) of this nation than, say, a literal pitbull with lipstick. For the last 8 years we have seen just what "Values" the republican party holds. And now everyone gets mad at our new president because he "isn't doing everything he promised", which in main part is due to the Republicans tendency to oLeppose any law, bill, tax or reform Democrats suggest, even if such opposition is obviously in conflict with American opinion or our best interests.
Let's face it, the Democrats want a system of government where they are in charge but everyone else is involved. Whereas the Republicans want a system in which they are in charge and everyone else is either in prison or hell. Even the "best" republican president (Regan) was, in fact, a coldhearted bastard best evidenced when he shut down our nations federally-funded sanitariums leaving thousands of mentally ill people to suffer the horrors of homelessness when they once has a safe haven in which to live.
Oh, yeah, and of course she isnt going to be mad at Republican radio ghoul Rush Limbaugh, they all think alike (Except the Log Cabin Republicans... YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!)
(Interesting note George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush was vice president of a bank seized by the U.S government for a violation of the Trading with the Enemy Act when they knowingly held Nazi gold for German war criminals)
Let us take note that most Democrats are remembered for at least a bit of good (Carter, Clinton, ect...) even if Clinton was guilty as hell of adultery.
I myself live in Utah, a nearly all republican legislature state, and I find myself outraged by their backwards often outdated methods of thinking...

And who cares if Family Guy spoofed her... I didnt hear John McCain bitch when they spoofed his internment in the Vietnam war. Not even Regan got mad when they spoofed his Alhziemers, and he had good damn reason to! Clinton didnt bitch, neither did Carter or Gore or Cheney or even Bush! In fact, some of them may have laughed..

In conclusion I think Heith Ledger summed it up best in his final role:
"Why so serious?"

I also wanted to add to my laundry list the the October 11, 2008 Philadelphia Flyers game, where she was booed while dropping the first puck.

She tried to hide behind her 7 year old daughter Piper and then played victim by claiming Philly fans were booing Piper and not her; putting Piper in a Flyers jersey, hoping that would stop the
boos.

Also, during the book tour over the winter, there were photos of her toting her special needs baby Trig with NO socks and coat; sometimes just a diaper and long sleeve shirt; nevermind Sarah Palin had on full winter clothing.

Also, how in the hell is Bristol Palin, a girl so dumb as to not know anything about rubbers or the pill, especially given she at the time was upper middle class/rich white girl, now an expert on anything? She is an expert on satire, television production, writing and directing? Put up or shut up Bristol. Why doesn't she write a series or script or comedy, get an agent or manager and pitch what SHE believes is good tv? Oh, I forgot, too busy squabbling very publicly with Levi Johnston yet supposedly is Ms. PR Media Businesswoman. Please.

Lastly, when will the Witch of Wasilla resign from Fox and return Mr. Murdoch's money to him? After all, if she has principles, should she not live up to them.

Two quotes come to mind thinking about this grifter and drama queen:

“Ever since we were kids, we always knew that people can be bought. It was only a question of who did the buyin' and for how much" Charlie "Lucky" Luciano

“Everybody has a price." Jimmy Hoffa

Palin's price is the fame and money people are willing to pay to listen to her inane drivel.

The funny thing is, when she is finally whacked (in politica/figurative sense), it won't be by Obama, Gibbs or Emanuel. Her own "family" will see to it that she is done once and for all as 2012 gets closer.

And lets take over the Republican Party and turn it into the new real Conservative Republican Party!

SURE. AND THEN WE'LL TAKE A BUNCH OF RATTLE SNAKES AND TURN THEM INTO PUPPY DOGS. GOOD LUCK, BUDDY

------------------------------

What's wrong with getting as many real Conservatives to win in the primaries, with the goal of after they are elected to go after the mainstream Republicans decptiver phony lying thieving political platform and not let up.

Thereby exposing them for what they really are to the Republicasn masses-members-voters.

Why can't this be done over time withthis plan in place.

There will be 35 US Senate races and all 435 House Seats
also in November.


Lets say we could get just 5 real Conservative Senators to win in the primaries and in the election. Those 5 could really start to shake things up in the Rep Party as long as the TP and RC members back them up alot in the media and every other way we can, so that the RINO-CINO's and neo-cons will not be able to somehow censor them.

and they could excpose the RINO-CINO-neo-cons for the extreme decep[tive fake phony frauds that they really are.

Thereby forcing them to be more Conservative than they would be otherwise, just to quell the controversy that will be brought up as the newly elected RC Senators start to call them out on their fake phony fraud RINO-CINO-neo-con ways.

Lets say we can get 5-10 of the RC type Senators elected?

What about if we can get as many House seats to be won by TP or RC candidates, who run on the Republican ticket and not as a 3rd party, so that they could get the Republican masses support and votes, as needed to even be able to win.

If we can get our people elected as US Senators and Congressmnen then that gives them leadership roles and alot of public recognition. If they are not willing and don't blend in with the mainstream Republicans, then they might be able to get the Republican masses to say, whoa, these guys re what we've been waiting for.

The media would cover it as a very big political thing/shakeup thsat is challenging the Republixcan leaderships political platform.

It would be all over the newsand then if the Republican masses/members/voters started to say, " we want the TP and RC republicans to be our leaders.

We like their policies better, etc, etc.

If this is our plan and we carry it out it could work.

So why don't we try to do that?

Infiltrate the the fake phony fraud RINO-CINO-neo-con Republican Party with TP and RC type Republican canbdidates and then use our candidates who win their primaries and the election to shake up the Republican Party.

The more races and elections that we win the more that we'll be able to shape the Republican Party to be more and more over time as a real Conservative Republican Party.

One last thing, what we need to always do is to get our political platform mainstreamed to the Republican masses so that they will come to expect their Republican candidates leaders, and politicians to be alot more Conservative as we start doing all that was described above in this comment.

When I say real Conservative, I mean stop illegal immigration, no amnesty for illegals,

stop the corporationsa from having so much influence over everything, stop the stupid anti-American middle east wars,

start our own self reliant widescale energy and fuel system using every type of alternative energy source and conventional sources too, if/when/where it's still needed,

put US troops on our Southern border or just hire enough border patrol, put every illegal alien involved in ongoing street criminal activity in jail or throw them out of the US,

US-StopGettingScammedByIllegalAliens said...

Lets have a look at a very revealing and telling part of the Mexican Constitution and then ask ourselves, "why are we doing so many Anti-American -$$$ things -$$$ for their citizens in our country,

that are completely the opposite to and against the US's best interests, that Mexico would never do for any other countries citizens,

especially those who tried to enter their highly protected countries borders illegally, let alone overrun their land and country with hordes of illegal invaders.

Mexican Constitution:

1) Article 16: Any Mexican private citizen may arrest someone committing a crime such as an alien in the country illegally and hand him or her over to authorities for prosecution

2) Immigrants may not become lawmakers, cabinet officers, or a Supreme Court Justice, or even a clergyman, but must be a native born Mexican. (Articles 55, 91, 95 and 130)

Can you say, Sonia Sotomayor: Recently confirmed US Supreme Court Justice, who was not a native born Mexican or US American.

She would have and still is barred from serving as a lawmaker, cabinet officer, or Supreme Court Justice in Mexico, even if she became a Mexican citizen!

3) Article 33: Foreigners may not participate in political affairs in any way.

4) Article 32: Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners for employment, and Mexicans citizenship by birth is considered indispensable for certain jobs such as airline crews, military officers, chiefs of seaports and airports.

5) Article 27: Only Mexicans by birth or naturalization may acquire ownership of land, water or their appurtenances.

I'll repeat this one again; Article 16 - because it's so ironic in light of our moronicly stupid, patheticlly weak border security and illegal alien/immigration laws, policy,

and the traitorous, treasonous, blatant disrespectful and malpractical non-enforcement of the somewhat strict laws that are currently on the US legal books.

Mexican Constitution:

1) Article 16: Any Mexican private citizen may arrest someone committing a crime such as an alien in the country illegally and hand him or her over to authorities for prosecution.

Getting the picture yet? America has THE softest most inneffectual illegal alien/immigration law enforcement, and political policies.

We would be better off implementing similar immigration laws and policies to that of Mexico. Seems fair doesn't it.

'U.S. policy on immigration is a tragic joke'

I will not vote for any politician who is not tuff on both BORDER SECURITY & ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. We are under invasion!!!

We desparately need to enforce the laws that are already on the books.

Amnesty has already failed us many times before, which is why we're in this situation now. We can thank Reagan & his 1986 3 million illegals Amnesty program for that.

Also including these illegal Amnesty grants along the way:

1. Section 245(i) The Amnesty of 1994 – a temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens.

2. Section 245(i) The Extension Amnesty of 1997 – an extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994.

3. Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NA­SCARA) Amnesty of 1997 – An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America.

4. Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA) of 1998 -- An amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.

5. Late Amnesty of 2000 – An amnesty for illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 400,000 illegal aliens.

6. Life Amnesty of 2000 – A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty that legalized an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.

That's Amnesty people, and none of the border security and employers not hiring illegals provisions written into any of these legislations have ever been enforced!!!

All of these issues are connected & are destroying America from within & can no longer be ignored.

We are obliged to rely on things like academic degrees — and on the relative prestige of the institutions that grant them — to a much greater degree than was the case in the past.

This was evident in the comparisons that were drawn between President Obama and Governor Palin in the summer of 2008. His intelligence was never questioned. Hers was, repeatedly. Undoubtedly his two Ivy League degrees (from Columbia and Harvard) helped him. Her want of prestigious education hurt her: It made it easier for those who didn’t like her to say she was stupid. This presumption of stupidity was in the air before the interviews with Charles Gibson and Katie Couric. Those interviews resembled ambushes, orchestrated by people who were already convinced that she was a moron. Had Obama — who cherishes his teleprompter — been ambushed in this way, his intelligence would have been questioned too.

________________________________

More whiny victimization from the Palin crowd.

Harry Truman, Richard Nixon and to a degree Bill Clinton were not stuffy Ivy League elites (with the execption of Clinton's Yale law degree); Truman not even having a college degree.

However, they all could speak to the issues of the day eloquently and intelligently. Truman oversaw the Berlin Airlift, breaking the Soviet stranglehold over Berlin and had the fortitude to integrate the Armed Forces, forcing a broken convention, with Southern delegates forming a third party with Strom Thurmond as their candidate.

Nixon, for all of his paranoia and faults, knew policy and politics inside and out; being the first VP and President to go behind the Iron Curtain; opening the door to China and drawing down U.S. engagement in Vietnam/SE Asia.

Clinton spoke to the economic issues of his day, pointing out that the policies of Reagan and Bush I had a harsh underside which rewarded wealth and speculation rather than work and hard production.

They also could answer questions about issues.

Palin could not even say what she reads. Simple as that. People like MA can call it ambush journalism but it was a SIMPLE QUESTION, given Palin was a NOBODY just three weeks earlier. She had NOT been through 22 debates like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton; had NO speeches or writings on any national issues and seemed disinclined towards learning anything about them.

Intellectual curiosity has NOTHING to do with alma mater. I reapeat, being inquisitive and interested in issues has NOTHING to do with what institution granted one's degree or diploma.

It has to do with exactly that, curiosity, inquisitiveness. This nation has serious and complex issues that CANNOT be distilled down to soundbites and buzzwords, nor can SERIOUS leaders bother themselves or the populace with phony outrage over NOTHING!

Palin has NO interest in learning about issues of any sort beyond buzzwords. She has offered NO plan, policy or solution beyond what other Republicans have already done. She is simply warmed over George W. Bush PISS.

This Family Guy issue is phony indignation to keep herself relevant. Well, Sarah, when you reach for the spotlight, you are bound to get BURNED!

Keep talking, Caribou Barbie. Keep talking. Guaranteed re-election for Obama.

Let's see what she says against Bob Marshall of VA, who claimed (then retracted) that post-abortion kids who are disabled are "God's punishment" against abortion.

Especially since Sarah hinted at having had one herself to score political points with the rabid anti-aborts, in Going Rogue.

My guess....crickets. Not just from her, but the rest of the social conservative bigots/hypocrites. Either way, It will be hilarious to watch her Facebook in the next couple of days.
