Rush Limbaugh is set to make an appearance -- well, his voice anyway -- on Fox's animated show "Family Guy."
And it looks pretty darn funny.
The video below includes clips of the episode, as well as a fit-looking Limbaugh discussing with "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane why he accepted the invitation to be the voice of the Rush character. Essentially, Limbaugh argues that you've got to be able to laugh at yourself. As Limbaugh says, "the show is irreverent and makes fun of everybody."
This is true. The show, like "South Park," tends to mock both political sides fairly equally.
Still, it is interesting that Limbaugh would choose to go on "Family Guy." Limbaugh is a big supporter of Sarah Palin, and as recently as February, Bristol Palin called the show's writers "heartless jerks" for an insensitive joke about Sarah Palin's special needs son, Trig.
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
