Video: "Family Guy" goofs on Vietnam vets

I feel about this show the way I do about Bill Maher: It’s repulsive, but since it tries so pitifully hard to be provocative, you instinctively want to spite it by shrugging it off. React or don’t react in the comments as you see fit; for what it’s worth,
Mediaite’s online poll is skewing 75/25 towards “offensive.” What’s interesting, watching this as a “South Park” fan, is that it’s hard to picture SP doing a similar joke despite both shows’ reputation for shock humor. I can absolutely imagine them doing Vietnam jokes — in fact, as I recall, they did one in the Mohammed episode just a few weeks ago — but something this cloddish and mindlessly incendiary is almost unimaginable. “He cried like a bitch?” Really?
