Kathy Griffin, Unfunny and Un-American

Monday, March 8, 2010

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.

Griffin can be funny but certainly not always. I this instance she is prostituting for like minded perverts that relish berating good people and heros...

No wonder she is on the D-List.

Kathy Griffin hasn't been funny since times were good. Some stand-up's will da anything for a laugh. Griffin does everything and anything for attention. I hesitate to post this. She doesn't deserve our time or attention.

What goes around comes around and Kathy Griffin is laying some groundwork for unpleasant recurrences. But she is not the only one spewing on Sarah Palin. I cannot understand why so many women especially don't just dislike her, they viciously hate her while she has achieved against all odds.

Kathy Griffin sounds like a nasty lady. Why would she go, uninvited, to the home of a person she doesn't like? I would not dare go to the house of a celebrity I DO like, unless they invite me. This intrusion, combined with the fact she said she'd like to push Sarah Palin down the stairs, makes me think Miss Kathy might be a common criminal, as well as a slanderer.
Why do we let people like that work in show business?
