Now here’s an interesting turn of events I found off of CNN.com: Andrea Fay Friedman, the actress who voiced the character that sparked an angry response from Palin, has down syndrome, and saw the scene as nothing but satire.Friedman states that she was simply playing a role, and the line was part of that role, which she had fun doing. She also goes on to say that her parents raised her to laugh and have a sense of humor, which is part of having a normal life.
I would have to agree, especially since I do not feel that the episode showed her character in a negative way (except for being a bit high maintenance.) I’m beginning to wonder if Palin saw the episode at all, or just merely heard about it. What do you all think?
