    Palin lashes out at 'Family Guy'

     

    — Sarah Palin is lashing out at the portrayal of a character with Down syndrome on the Fox animated comedy "Family Guy."

    In a Facebook posting headlined "Fox Hollywood — What a Disappointment," the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and current Fox News contributor called Sunday night's episode "another kick in the gut." Palin's youngest son, Trig, has Down syndrome.

     

    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."

    Palin resigned as Alaska governor last summer.

    Palin's oldest daughter, Bristol, also was quoted on her mother's Facebook page, calling the show's writers "heartless jerks."

     

    A "Family Guy" publicist didn't immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.
