Rush Guests On "Family Guy"
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh will appear as a lead character in this week's episode of the Emmy-winning cartoon, and believe it or not, he agreed to do his own voice-overs.
Seth MacFarlane, creator of "Family Guy," is well-known as a supporter of the Democratic Party. In the past he has donated money to left-wing Congressional committees and even helped fund Barack Obama's presidential campaign, according to Newsmeat.com.
But the upcoming episode probably won't be as ruthless as you think. According to sodahead.com, here's a synopsis issued in a press release by Fox:
"When Brian learns that Rush Limbaugh (guest-voicing as himself) is going to be at the Quahog Mall for a book-signing, he decides to go down there and give him a piece of his left-wing mind. But when Rush unexpectedly comes to Brian's rescue, Brian has a political change of heart."
That actually sounds a little bit like the circumstances surrounding the episode. Maybe MacFarlane had a similar encounter with Limbaugh when they agreed to work together.
Here's a sneak peek..
