Laura Bush The animated Fox show “Family Guy” is known to be politically incorrect but they really pushed the envelope with the catch phrase Laura Bush Killed a Guy on their December 7, 2008 show. Lead characters Peter and Lois griffin repeated the phrase a number of times during the show. But what did they base the remark on?

According to public police records, former First Lady Laura Bush, then called Laura Welch, blew a stop sign and was involved in a car crash that killed a friend of hers in a different car. Mrs. Bush’s spokesman Andrew Malcolm released a statement in 2000 when the crash was first spoken about during President Bush’s run for the White House, saying “It was a very tragic accident that deeply affected the families and was very painful for all involved, including the community at large. To this day, Mrs. Bush remains unable to talk about it.”

Mrs Bush had allegedly hit a sedan that was being driven by her 17 year old friend Michael Douglas. Rumors say she might have been criminally negligent, implying that she was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the fatal crash. No charges were filed and no evidence was ever recorded.

The Family Guy show, created by Seth McFarlane, has won three Emmy awards and routinely skewers prominent political figures in the country, including linking Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin to Nazis. It has mocked slavery, disability, the women’s movement, obesity and many more controversial and sensitive issues on the show earlier.
