"Family Guy" creators sent out this flier to Emmy voters to campaign for one of the awards given annually for TV excellence.

Darryl Isherwood of the Star-Ledger takes a moment off from tracking down the Bridgegate scandals to have a laught with this articles on Family Guy' takes on Chris Christie and Bridgegate

The creators of Fox Channel's animated show Family Guy are using Governor Christie's BridgeGate theme to pump up support for the Emmy nomination, sending out a mailer showing cartoon character Peter Griffin setting out traffic cones.

Gov. Chris Christie has often said that people outside New Jersey care little about the George Washington Bridge lane diversion controversy playing out here at home. Family Guy's Peter and Stewie Griffin respectfully disagree. ...

The line is a takeoff on the now infamous email sent by former Christie Administration Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly, who in an August email told former Port Authority official David Wildstein "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee."

Prior to the release of that email in January, Christie made light of the situation, joking with reporters that in fact it was he who had put out the cones to divert two local lanes out of Fort Lee to use by highway traffic.

Family Guy is seeking the Emmy in the Best Animated Program category.

We could make up some even better one for them.

I would have Peter Griffin handling a tire iron saying "Dats a nice awards show ya got there, Emmy's, what a shame if something was to happen to it."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
