Kathy Griffin Avoids CNN Ejection, Resolves to Offend Willow Palin in 2011
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | January 1, 2011 | Bryan Alexander

Posted on 01/01/2011 6:09:19 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Kathy Griffin behaved during her New Year's Eve broadcast, and kept from being yanked off the air as she warned would happen if she relapsed into bad language.

The comic set a resolution for 2011 -- taking on a new Palin in the new year.

"I've already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously," Griffin tells The Hollywood Reporter. "But I think it's Willow's year to go down."

"In 2011 I want to offend a new Palin," she vows.

While the daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is 16, Griffin feels she's fair game, pointing to Palin's widely reported use of homophobic slurs on Facebook in November.

"She's called people a fa---t on Facebook a couple of times," says Griffin. "You don't throw around the f-word without hearing from me about it."

Another resolution included "going to church more."

Why not Piper? If you have no standards, what's the difference? Heck, why not go after the toddler Trig like Andrew Sullivan and Lisa Lampanelli do? The fact that this individual has a segment of the populace that like her makes me worry about this country. Of course, the fact that Mr. Obama sits in the White House causes me severe dismay, as well.

Attacking children. Typical degenerate. The script is easily written. Sit down and shut up, please.

She’s barely articulate, never funny, completely obnoxious, and always an eyesore. What’s not to like about her?

I live with the satisfaction that God will deal with them in his own time.

In the case of Griffin, it looks like he already dropped an ugly lumberyard on her.

I saw part of the show with Anderson Cooper last night, and was shocked that they allowed her to continue on.

She told some fart jokes. She made comments about Anderson Cooper and his “nuts”. She said something about going on a cruise with the Backstreet Boys and sleeping with them. All of these subjects are fit for family entertainment, aren’t they? (sarcasm)

Some may not be offended by her and her antics, but, if so, please admit how much standards have changed. Please admit that talking about farting, casual sex, and the testicles of a man would have been censored years ago, and that such censorship would be appropriate sometimes.

Now, part of what has kept things from going too far has been self-censorship, in which people on TV would fear crossing a line and being banned from TV. If there were any standards, Kathy Griffin would have such fears. Since standards are just about gone, she has no reason to self-censor, and goes places other won’t.

I’m no doctor or therapist, but, her mannerism remind me of someone who is bi-polar and needs meds. Maybe that’s too strong to say, but, something is wrong with this girl. Yet people like this get to be on TV and say and do outrageous things, and we’re supposed to sit here and not say anything. Due to political correctness, we can’t be judgemental about anyone or anything anymore.

Can’t she get it through her head that this sort of thing just ain’t funny?

Janeane Garofolo was actually funny back in the Ben Stiller Show days and “The truth about cats and dogs”.

Kathy was funny back on Suddenly Susan and a lot of her stuff on My Life on the “D” List was sort of funny. Her heart was in the right place when she went to Iraq to entertain the troops.

You’d think any reasonably smart comic can easily see that, while there’s plenty of room for political humor, becoming a nasty, one-sided hit man kills your mojo. You may gain a few hard-core worshippers but the vast majority of your audience is turned off. The great comics down through history understood this.

“Political humor” would be Rich Little doing Nixon. Anyone remember the early eighties HBO show “Not Necessarily the News”? Their Reagan gibes were hilarious. It CAN be done right but ugly doesn’t sell.

And I thought that the liberals have told us that children of politicians are off-limits. Why is it ok to attack Sarah Palin’s children, but we can’t say anything about the children of good Democrats?????? What exactly is the rule here????

I think we can guess whose side the network “suits” are on and with that side anything goes.

It would be less irritating if we didn’t know what incredible cowards these people are.

I think KG's agent is Rahm Emanuel's brother. She isn't funny and she uses the Palins because they are more interesting that KG.

I can't imagine who watches her...I only read about her latest Palin act.

Griffin is betting that the Palins will be to her what Rush Limbaugh was to Al Franken. That is, someone who is a perceived arch-enemy of the far left *and* is successful enough that she can hitch her own fortunes to them.

She's a member of a long list of douchebag comedians who only get work because they bash conservatives. You have to be ugly, loud, ignorant and immoral to be on the list. Comedy and entertainment have nothing to do with it.

The Palins represent everything she’s not... an extremely attractive husband/wife team totally in love, 5 gorgeous children, an enormous & loving extended family, they contribute to society, they are successful without having to put other people down, etc. She’s sad and her heart must be sick. Disgusting is the type of person who devotes their life to being mean and hateful.

Janeane Garofolo was actually funny in "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion." That was before her looks went, too. She had good genetic material.

When her pathetic “comedy” act was failing (even her husband bailed). She hit the Gay Club circuit. she perfected her filth ridden schtick there.

Besides being ugly as H. She has No imagination.

Actually that would be a lot more fun than paying for and/or watching a show featuring her.

I remember using cow flops as bases... really taught you to learn to use the corners of the bases when running and sliding.

Most people are more entertained by a laxative commercial than by anything that Kathy Griffin has ever done. She’ll be working the comedy lounge in hell soon enough while Ted Kennedy and Hitler yuk it up over drinks.

The reason she’s on TV? It’s people like you that watch her on CNN. If you immediately change channels when she comes on, she loses her audience and poof, she’s gone forever.
