Family Guy Voice Actor Responds to Palin Criticism

Friedman, who has Down syndrome, is an actress and public speaker.

“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." - Andrea Fay Friedman, 39, who played Ellen in the Family Guy episode that drew Palin’s ire, in an e-mail to the New York Times. (Like the character she voiced on the show, Friedman has Down syndrome.) [Arts Beat/NYT]
