“My name is Andrea Fay Friedman. I was born with Down syndrome. I played the role of Ellen on the “Extra Large Medium” episode of Family Guy that was broadcast on Valentine’s day. Although they gave me red hair on the show, I am really a blonde. I also wore a red wig for my role in ” Smudge” but I was a blonde in “Life Goes On”. 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. My mother did not carry me around under her arm like a loaf of French bread the way former Governor Palin carries her son Trig around looking for sympathy and votes.”
So who has a kick in the gut now? After reading a bit about Andrea Fay Friedman I loved her! She says she has “Up Syndrome” instead of “Down Syndrome”. Positive…capable of sticking up for herself when the sensitivities of the Palin’s have been damaged. Bravo.
As for Ms. Friedman’s allegations of “French bread”….this picture was taken in not so warm conditions…look at Piper.
People chanting your name? Priceless.
