Kathy Griffin may have been invited to the state of Alaska to perform "comedy," but she certainly wasn't invited to Governor Palin's home, which is where she showed up nonetheless--something law-abiding citizens call trespassing. Supposedly, her purpose in walking past a number of "No trespassing" signs on the Palin property was to invite her to the show.
The absurdity of that invitation is only more obvious now that details of the routine have been released, the least of which is that this is the same show where Levi Johnston introduced Griffin. That fact speaks volumes in and of itself.
The most disgusting part of Griffin's routine was her scurrilous comment that Senator McCain picked Governor Palin to be his running mate after she performed a certain sex act on him. I am choosing not to link to the video, as it is rife with vulgarity and Palin Derangement Syndrome symptoms well beyond the pale.
Under the guise of comedy, this lady--and I use the term loosely--comes to the state where Governor Palin was elected and served, then commences to spew sexist venom, suggesting that the governor's selection as the VP nominee could not possibly be because she was qualified. Governor Palin, whose resume includes city council member, mayor, oil and gas regulator, and governor with an approval rating of 93% at one point, was not tapped for her experience and expertise, but because she prostituted herself. Mind you, this is the same nominee who had more executive experience than anyone else on either ticket, but Griffin would have us believe that she "performed" her way into the senator's good graces.
Furthermore, Griffin's comment suggests that Senator McCain, an American hero who displayed incredible commitment to his country, who went through torture of a magnitude most of us will never even wrap our brains around, suddenly had such little regard for his country that one sex act was the deciding factor in who would join him in serving the America he loves and sacrificed so much for.
And this is supposed to be funny?
No matter your political party or your obsession with all things Palin--something Griffin admits to--relegating those who have served their states and their nation to positions of prostitute and john, just to get a few laughs from a few like-minded perverts, is not only unfunny; it's un-American.
