Tom Tomorrow Presents The BFI (Master Satirist?)

The Former Governor of Alaska appeared on the BillO The Clown Show on Faux News to register faux outrage at Seth MacFarlane's animated sitcom, "The Family Guy," for (hypocrisy abounds) the Fox Broadcasting Company. The Former Governor of Alaska was outraged that an animated character with Down Syndrome (like the Former Governor's infant son) proclaimed that she was the daughter of a former governor of Alaska. Of course, The BFI (Big — F-Word-Of-Your-Choice — Idiot) aka Rush (For The Exits At The Draft Board) Limbaugh regularly refers to his political opponents as "retards." The Former Governor of Alaska issued a pass to The BFI because he was a "satirist." If this is (fair & balanced) speciousness, so be it.
