Stewie Griffin takes tips from Maureen Dowd

Characters from "Family Guy" and "American Dad" riff on Hillary Clinton and Maureen Dowd in a promo for Fox's Sunday lineup.
"Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State," Peter Griffin says. "What do you think?"

"Well I think she's doing great, but I bet Joe Biden would like a little less blonde ambition at State," Stewie replies.

"I read that in the New York Times!" Roger the Alien says.

"Yeah, that was in Maureen Dowd's column," Cleveland chimes in.

"Well," Stewie stutters, "that Maureen Dowd sounds like one sharp tack. I'll have to start reading her. What paper does she write for again?"

Watch the promo in full here! They are referring to an article Dowd wrote in the New York Times about Obama's possible selection of Clinton as Secretary of State:
How, one may ask, can he put Hillary -- who voted to authorize the Iraq war without even reading the intelligence assessment -- in charge of patching up a foreign policy and a world riven by that war?

You can hear the gnashing of teeth from John Kerry -- who thought the job was promised to him in return for his endorsement after New Hampshire -- and Bill "Judas" Richardson, who met Friday with Obama in Chicago to discuss the job.

And Joe Biden would probably like a little less blond ambition at State so he could be the shadow secretary. But as James Carville has said, a campaign is the time to stab your enemies and a transition is the time to stab your friends.

Maureen Dowd is a total idiot. Family Guy is always pushing the limits on what is acceptable in our culture, what do you guys think?

Here is a little background on the creator that I dug up today: Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane shares the same birthday as Hillary... He is a liberal democrat, but he did support Obama. He is an atheist, who supports gay rights, and gay marriage. He was supposed to be on American Airlines flight 11, which was hijacked on September 11. NONE of this stops him from making lewd jokes on Family Guy about touchy issues such as gay rights, sexism, and even September 11th.

Here are some of Bill's appearances on Family Guy:

Oh and just for fun here is a digg on George Bush:

I rarely leave a response, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Stewie Griffin takes tips from Maureen Dowd".
And I do have a few questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or does it appear like a few of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I'd
like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you list of all
of all your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter
feed, or linkedin profile?
