Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but not when it comes to Kathy Griffin. The comedian is set to play a Sarah Palin-type character on an upcoming episode of "Glee" and Palin says she is hardly amused.
"You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she's kind of this — she's a 50-year-old adult bully, really, is what she is. Kind of a has-been comedian, and she can do those things to me," Palin told Fox News when asked about Griffin's "Glee" guest spot.
But while Palin may be able to take the potshots, she is warning the "My Life on the D List" star to lay off her family, including daughters Bristol and Willow, who have been targeted in the flame-haired comedian's act.
"I would just ask for respect of my children," said Palin. "As she had stated on CNN that her New Year's resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little bit too far. Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone."
According to ABC News, Griffin responded by offering the "Sarah Palin's Alaska" star complimentary tickets to her new Broadway stand-up show, "Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony," which runs at the Belasco Theater from March 11-19.
"As a fellow reality star, Kathy would like to extend free tickets to her upcoming Broadway show to reality-star Sarah Palin and her reality-TV crew," a rep for Griffin said. "Kathy supports all reality stars regardless of what they say about her."
I’ve been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i’m happy to convey that I have a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make sure to don’t forget this website and give it a look regularly.
Valuable information. Fortunate me I discovered your site unintentionally, and I am surprised why this coincidence didn't took place in advance! I bookmarked it.
Cathy is a misguided person. She will never find happiness craving for attention. Attacking children is the obvious barometer of how desperately she wants your attention and money. It is an indication of how low she will go to get any kind of attention. Very sad human being.
'Umm sorry to interrupt your interview Ms. Kettle, but we've got Ms. Pot on line one and she says its urgent!'
'Boohoo waaahhhh waaaahhhh 'Only I get to bully people, sling mud and exploit my children, only me fair you're a big fat doo-doo head leave me alone or Immina tell my mommy to tell you mommy that you're pickin' on me...waaaahhhh waaahhh I'm a quitter and a hypocrit waaahhhh! '
Awwww the self proclaimed 'bada$$ hockey mom' got her widdle bitty fewwings hurt on da pwaygwound again. And here am I without my crying towel. Darn it all to heck! Boo Hoo
Oh wait Caribou Barbie people who live in glass houses...
Both these gals got pink socks hanging out the back of there britches.
Colleen you sound like a c**t
Sarah Palin is a has been, she know that she's not running. (string her followers along) She was only Governor for about 3 months, than she quits...how can she run a country?
that should read sardonic humor comedian
That's her job you twit. She's a sardonic humor. At least she attempts to accomplish what she was hired and paid to do. Unlike some whiny-a$$ quitters out there. No need to mention any names
In a related news item:
Sarah Palin is dubbed a has-been/never was politician and human being. And Donald Trump has been called a Real Estate Mogul. Now excuse me while I go call my Physician a Medical Professional. Those ßas tards!
Poor Simple Sarah. She's becoming less and less relevant, and has to create conflict from thin air. Poor thing.
OMG,I LOVE BOTH OF THESE WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CROUGARS!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAWRR!!!!!!!!!!
Obviously Sara has proven herself to be the idiot we all know her to be yet again!! Kathy G. Is no "has been!" Sarah is so stupid she thinks if she says it, it will magically become true! Facts?What are those?? Sara: really hates all of those bothersom things called facts.The women is delusional...putting Kathy G. In a room with Sarah P. Would be unfair-like a fight between a Lion and a kitten who was dropped on their head Kathy would read that B to Washington and Back before Sarah even understood who it was in front of her!!
I agree with you Kevin!! Palin put her children in the public eye on purpose and she doesn't expect someone to crack a joke. I don't care for Griffin but she can and will say what is on her mind. It was refreshing to read your comment as some of these posts are down right ugly.
Sarah Palin is the poster child for the effects of a full frontal labotomy. Gee Sarah you still haven't figured it out yet? Yes we are all tired of your public drooling sessions. You're not related to Charlie Sheen are you? Both of you have very similar ranting styles :(
I wanna bend Palin over and give a little tea bagger treat!! Time for a little butt slammin!! She needs a real man...not that clown Todd. I would tap that any day of the week. KG on the other hand is a nasty packake chested freak. I wish she would just go away!!
Kathy Griffin is a genius.
Kathy Griffi has a Penis? Huh, what?
Ya know...Sarah Palin is the *real* has-been. Like she has room to talk about Kathy Griffin being a "bully" or anyone else for that matter...Palin has been nothing but a loud-mouthed...know-it-all...knows-nothing from the gate. In all her time in the public eye...I have *never* heard her come up with any real, working solutions to solve the real problems our nation is facing. Sarah Palin is nothing more but a wanna be "poster child" for the Tea Party...she really needs to be a face on a milk carton!
I wholeheartedly agree with you Steve! I would hope that the People of America will make their voices heard and do everything we can come 2012 to make sure this loudmouthed banshee named Sarah Palin doesn't even get the chance to be President!
Wait, stop the press, I think the real news story is that Kathy is a comedian ... really? K.G. is a comedian? When did that happen? When is she gonna start being funny?
Oh, Sarah is that request to protect your kids kinda like when you exploted Bristol during the campaign. What decent mom would put their seriously dysfunctional family in the public eye. Includes your pregnant teen daughter and disabled children. go home and take care of the family-you don't matter anymore.
ps...I like to stick my finger up my little boys bunghole and then smell it.
Don't let these folks get you down. The world is able to handle many kinds. If Sarah Palin can even get folks to think she
is anything, we certainly don't believe anything they have to say. We hope Palin would just DISAPPEAR. Keep up the good work. You are allowed to say anything you want, she does. We love you. This is my first e-mail to you but I think you are funny, most of the time.
Bristol is an adult and fair game now and also out there in public so get over it Sara.
So Palin, who has spoken like a bully for years now, including barbs against the President's kids, doesn't like being on the other end? Well too bad. The difference – this has been Kathy's style of comedy for years, and Sarah is supposedly Presidential material (hardly).
If they're gonna make fun of a Palin kid they should make fun of the retarded one. Low hanging fruit.
lunch is almost over. dang.
But it's ok for to say what she wants.do as I say,not as I do.
What the heck is wrong with some of you people? More importantly.. What the heck is wrong with Palin?
Whether you like her or not, Kathy Griffin is a COMEDIAN. ALL comedians make jokes about somebody else at there expense. CONSTANTLY. But I don't necessarily hear anyone throwing a b**ch fit about them and their jokes.
Personally, I don't like Kathy either.
But I'm not getting my panties in a bunch over this.
Learn to pick a wedgie, and go on >.>
My mom is the best.
Sarah Palin calling someone else a bully. That is rich. Next she'll try to tell everyone who "real Americans" are. Oh wait, she already did that, didn't she...
I poop my pants !
Isn't this the pot calling the kettle black? Oh wait, it's a 40-something year-old bulling calling out the 50 year -old bully.
They're both bullies. Except Kathy Griffin is funny.
Pearl necklaces on these two..lol. I don't know what else to say on that subject. I think they need the facial instead..lol.
ANYONE WHO DISLIKES SARAH PALIN MUST BE OK ! YOU ARE THE BEST KATHY ! DONT LET THE TROLLS GET YOU DOWN.
Yea but Griffin likes to date NGGERS.
I think they are both hard working and fantasic entertainers – Kathy for her many shows and standup routines and Sarah for her "ever say quit" approach to Alaskan politics.
Yes Kathy is a bully, but what does Palin expect when she parades her family out there like a circus act.
YOU are a circus act with your beard and weiner.
Hey...clean up this blog site. It seems like we have a lot of misguided children responding/commenting.
why dont you come over and clean up my dirty butt crack.
We prefer the term RETARD not misguided. How rude!!! My mom is the best!
"misguided children" AKA followers of Sarah Palin!
Aww poor mama grizzly she can sure dish it out but lately it doesn't look like she can take any critiscm or funny impersonations. If she think griffin is a hilly how would she fare against world leaders...?
Sarah Palin is so childish and stupid. She needs to stop her absurd and pathetic media spats with everybody who disagrees or makes fun of her and her gross family. Kathy Griffin is a comedian whose entire act is making fun of people - Sarah and her trashy family are fair game. Palin SHOULD be the bigger person, but she's probably the one who taught her children to call people "f--ts." It's no wonder the VASTmajority of Americans think Palin is a joke.
And you shawn are gay. I have a hot and tasty sack lunch for ya then afterwards a warm chewy hershey bar.
Funny how one loser is calling another loser names. They should both go away. Sara as always wants and will say and do anything to be in the media. As soon as the media stops writing about her she comes and say anything to get herself back out there. The "C" word comes to mind for both these w*h0* res. Isn't Sara the same age or older? She is up there in age and she is not all that with her looks like some people says she is. Yes she is a bit better looking than Kathy much not by much.
And my rumphole is better looking than you.
Why does CNN keep deleting all the funny pooopp post ? They let people post untrue stuff about KAthy telling N word and jewwbilee jokes. Why cant we post about poooop ? Pooooop is vrery humorous !
Why is Sarah Palin still popular? Maybe she'll finally fade back into the obscurity that she emerged from once she hits the hard floor of reality and her advisors tell her she wouldn't stand a chance in a general election for president.
I miss being on DWTS
If I had a dog as ugly as kathy griffin I would shoot it.
Sara Palin go away – you are a hypocrite. I hate John McCain for bringing you into our lives.
Here's to a jealous Katthy Griffin!
Kathy Griffin is soooooo uggly that thinking of her repulsive self made me forget what to type.
Both of those necks need a pearl necklace
"The comedian is set to play a Sarah Palin-type character on an upcoming episode of "Glee" and Palin says she is hardly amused."
Now you know how the rest of us feel when you speak Sarah. Just take your top off in some Alaskan bar and stfu for the rest of your life.
Palin seriously needs to take a chill-pill and accept the fact that she and her family are always going to be the butt of many jokes regardless how tasteless some of those jokes may be.
You are ALL gonna be sorry if I release my pocket python.
Aye! Kathy is egomaniacal blowhard head...
plus i have a smelly behiind.
can I bite it?
Kathy Griffin is a comedian.....why would Sarah Palan go after her? I know...no one else is talking about Sarah. Wonder why?
Funny how the Alaskan Clampetts like to parade their inbred clan all over the planet but maintain that they are off limits to criticism. Ms Clampett is the biggest bully in politics (not to mention the least informed and biggest liar) but has proven time and again that she cannot stand any type of criticism. Here is a woman that may or may not have finished high school that continually pops off about anything constructive that comes out of Michelle Obama. There are too many to list but my favorite is "Ms Obama is trying to take away our dessert". From what I have observed, taking away desserts from her high school drop-out, out of wedlock teenage daughter would have been a good idea. By the way, this bastion of abstinence (Bristol) was knocked up by another high school drop-out whose mothe was/is a meth dealer.
Cmon...you can do better than that.
Leave my mommy alone!!!!
As both a monkey and a giraffe i fiond this argument confusing.
Kathy Griffin is absolutely a bully. That's the reason I've never been able to laugh at her comedy routines. She has so much open contempt for so many people, and I've never found contempt funny.
Where do all of the MORONS come from who write these things?????? No one can spell, use grammar correctly, write
even one legible sentence. No wonder the education system is taking hell from all sides. It's PATHETIC.
I agree Sally. My mom is the best!!!
The hypocrisy of Sarah Palin calling anyone a bully is staggering.
plus Kathys poooop is very smelly when she ealt lots of mexikin food. mine is too. yummmmmm smelly poop.
Sarah palin is disgrace to humanity. The only thing she has going for her is a pretty face, and that will quickly fade away in the next few years. The palins are a bunch of backwards hicks, that believe the earth is flat and blacks should sit at the back of the bus. These people are pathetic, as are their follower. Her 15 minutes of fame expired about three years ago, time to move on.
I find her comedy to be both insulting AND antisimetic. In my opinion she is an untallented sow.
Two Losers, thhey deserve each other.
It is telling though that Sarah Pee is so self-absorbed and delusional that she can not see that she herself is a loud mouthed, uninformed, 46 year old mean girl who has no credibility in calling anyone a "bully"
Kathy Griffiin is both antisemetic and racist. Do some research on her past. LIsten to her jokes and see what youi think. She needs to leave THE TRIBE alone.
Kathy Griffin is not anti-Semitic. She's very friendly with Joan Rivers...who is Jewish and would not stand for any anti-Semitic remarks from Kathy. What are you basing this argument on? Your own imagination?
Sarah Palin the biggest bully of them all, please go away Sarah you'll never be president and everytime you open your mouth your ignorance spews all over us like a drooling fool. PS we don't care that you can see Russia from your house :(
Old zum. you are little girly man. yah zum I twist your neck like pretzel. ya zum u know what you know and you ah gay. We are here to PUMP YOU UP!
Here I sit all broken hearted
Paid my dime and only farted.
Would you like a cherry slurpee.
If you can't stand the spotlight, remove yourself.
I love to Wrassle big sweaty fat burly men.
Hey nanycy grace, having some trouble typing with your fat fingers? Maybe putting down the twinkies for a minute would be a good idea. Sarah palin deserves everything that any comedian says about her, bottom line.
Is the pot calling the kettle black? Learn to type, you mistake of life.
If you don't want people to make fun of your family, don't do a reality TV show about them.
ps...kathy is cute! I would scissor with her.
Kathy Griffin is an unfunny "see you next thursday" kind of gal.
I and my husband went to see Kathys show. It is nothing but alot of cuss words with a few racisst jokes and some anti simeticc parodies thrown in. THis isnt the 1950s. The N word isnt funny Kathy.
Did you really? Because I have been to two of her shows, including one that is airing on Bravo on March 17th. She never uses racial slurs. Curse words? Sure, but it's not a church service so I don't see what the fuss is about. Also, I feel you must know that some words you used are misspelled. It's "racist" not "racisst" and "anti-semitic" not "anti semiticc."
People tend to respect opinions much more when they use proper spelling and grammar.
yea KG Chicago but you are gay.
If I were to be gay would that discredit my argument? I presented a fact and your argument against it is that I'm gay? Really? I'm going to pray for your misguided and hateful soul.
The n word is actually very funny. Only n1ggrs think otherwise.
Can't we all just get along.this is why the illegal imigrants are taking over.Because we americans keep stabbing each other in the back.and they work together.PEACE.
Seriously, CNN – can't you do something about all these posts referring to anal passages and bowel movements? These pathetic freaks need to be gassed. It is my understanding that this site is for humans to voice and/or debate their social and political perspectives.
Actually, you can do it yourself. Look underneath the posting. There is a repor abuse option. Just click on it.
The worst thinh about Cathy Griffin is she is not funny. A comedian that isnt funny is just a jerk.
I'm loving that Palin responded to Kathy and now she is also criticizing people in her own party all this media circus is just making it less and less likely that she will run for president so thank you Palin for all of this because no one wants an idiot on a presidential ticket it makes the entire country look bad.
Kathy is a bytch but you would eat her ginger pie.
If you want to take a dump in someones mouth, it should be Sarah Palin. Cause everything that comes out of her mouth is crap. Don't hate on Kathy for calling her, and her fame hungry family out for exactly what they are...
Kathy looks great and in awesome shape
Sarah failed at pageants, motherin, governin and only has 'talent" to look purty fur her hillbilly base.
KATHY GRIFFINN IS SPREADING HAATE SPEACH ! SHE IS A NAAZI !
This is such a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Sarah Palin is a huge bully, and an inarticulate one at that.
If she doesn't want Kathy Griffin (or any comedian, news personality, etc) poking fun at her kids then they shouldn't be in the public eye so much. Bristol is in the public eye via "Dancing with the Stars," her many unnecessary television interviews, her upcoming "memoir," her "abstinence" initiative, and her frequent faux pas statements with her sister Willow to the media, on websites, etc.
Kathy doesn't make fun of the actual Palin children, Tripp and Trigg (or whatever their names are). If she did, that would be another story. Nobody has a problem with poking fun at other teenagers in the public eye like Justin Beiber & Miley Cyrus – the same standards should hold true for Bristol as long as she is seeking out fame and fortune in the media, then the gloves are off.
I think it's hard to call somebody a "has been" when their career has never been more successful. Ms. Griffin has just signed a deal for a series of comedy specials on Bravo, she's won two Emmys, has been nominated for a Grammy twice, has a NY TImes bestseller, her Broadway show opens this weekend, and she continues to sell out theatres across the country for her stand up. If this is Sarah Palin's definition of a has been, then I am sure Milli Vanilli are DYING to be has beens.
Kevin, thank you for your comment and your excellent grammar. You stand out like a sore thumb among these commentors. Way to go. Cheers! :)
Very good analysis.
I guess "kevin is gay friendly" is supposed to be an insult rather than a compliment, right?
I feel bad for you. And I feel soooooooooo thankful to be gay friendly and not have any of your hate in my heart. Thank god.
@Tom & @Colleen, Thank you. For the other commenter with the "clever" name, there's no need to counter my fair analysis and opinion (which I have a right to) by creating a sensationalizing name and using vulgar language. You don't have to agree with me, but at least issue a rebuttal in a respectful manner with some solid viewpoints and maybe even some facts. That's how an adult discussion happens. It does not happen by name calling and sensationalizing with off-topic comments like a child would in a middle school fight.
Kevin, now you know what it feels like to be treated the way KG treats her targets You want to be treated with some respect but think SP doesn't deserve it...are you intentionally being a hypocrite, or is a light about to go on in your head?
Thanks Colleen. Would you please insert a gerbil in my rectum.
Wow. I really hope Sarah gets shot on hee reality show! Suck it up you big baby!
@nancy. I think you meant Joy Beyhart but really Kathy Griffin and her are the same person. OOOOOLD. REPULLSIVE. HATE MONGEERZ. NAAASTTY SOWWS.
You cannot compare Kathy to Joy Behar–not the same type comedians. Joy has a lot of truth and really funny comments in her comedy and Kathy is more like Joan Rivers who are mean and backbiting side to the comedy often sometimes like Jay Leno. Joan Rivers used to get in trouble too for her comments.
Kathy is pretty cool...Sarah is a complete idiot...what an embarrassment to the republican party! :)
I dont think i would be going to a tickets provided show.. Sounds like a set up for her material to me!
Tammy, wanna get it on wit a SupaStah!!
and Ive been trying to find someone to bully my rumphole for 4 years.
mmmm i'm gonna sniff it
Leave sarah & her kids alone . Who's Kathy Griffin anyways. A no talent
Palin herself has been trying to bully President and 1st Lady Obama for the last 3 years!!
where do you live? i'll take you to poundtown.
Palin wore go-go boots to a gig?
Kathy put palin in place that she is just a clown entertainer w a journalism diploma
Palin complains about media? She is the media!
Poor Sarah.....she wants the right to use her kids as props all to herself. Throw one daughter on DWTS for publicity. Then tote the handicapped one around like a campaign prop. This woman is sickening.
Amen Dilberto! I was thinking the exact same thing. Putting your family on a REALITY SHOW makes them public figures, and open season to anyone who wants to say anything about them! (ESPECIALLY COMICS!) My favorite thing about SP is how much free publicity she gives Kathy! It's a dream come true for Kathy! She has to be loving this! Besides, Kathy says things out of silliness, fun, and entertainment. Palin says things out of bigotry and ignorance. I also love that even when SP is complaining about somebody else being "mean", she can't help but make a mean comment herself! Calling Kathy a "has been"? Please! Better a has been, than a never was, right Sarah?
Palin is a dude in drag, ger only skills are applying fakeup and hair buns!
From the pic it appears griffin has had yet another face lift.
Palin is the grandma indicted for bullying and lost her job!
Palin – how does your own meds taste!??
Griffin and Palin are so much alike, it's scary. They feed each other's flame.
What are YOU, Sarah, but a 40ish year old bully?! You make me ashamed to be from the United States of America!
that's ok charlie, the united states of america is ashamed of you too. And if your that ashamed, why don't you back your bags and leave. We won't miss you.
I walk around with butter beans in my underpants.
I think Kathy is funny. She is a comedian you know. That is her chosen profession.
There is nothing nor has there ever been anything funny about Kathy Griffin.
dont like paylin. nope. but she is exactly right on this matter. kathy griffin is a haatefull obeese ancientt red headded sooww.
I wount fo-shizzle her drizzle wif you stizzle.
I down with that too my brotizzle!!!!!
50 years old. NO WAY ! That huuge lesbean koow Kathy is at least in her 70s or 80s.
Didvyou notive the Kathy Griffin show is gone from irs regular time slot on HLN. The oold fatt hippopottamouss lost her show ! YES ! I am now back to watching good CNN HLN 7pm until 10pm! We LOVE it ! Thank you CNN and HLN ! Cathy Griffin was stinking up your network !
I think you are talking about joy behar.
Griffin is just upset because she has a very small weiner.
I agree with Sarah Palin about the whole 50 year old Bully thing, most of time the Kathy Griffin goes too far and it is not funny anymore, there is a correct way to be a comedian and to make ticket buyers laugh but do not do it at the expense of the innocent children and family members of the person whom you are picking on. Kathy Griffin shame on you, enough is enough, it wasn't funny years ago and it still not funny now.
I think Cindy is Sarah Palin online nickname.. lol
Hi Sarah.... How do you like it now?? You forget yourself.. You always bully your opponent!! How about now??
KATHY IS A BIG PIECE OF CRAAAPOLA. I am not a fan of palin but she is 100 percent right about the biiiiich cow kathy g.
Funny thing Raineshia, that's what I think about you!
Griffin was a has been who never really was, but then the same can be said of Palin. These two deserve each other.
Both of these ladies are jokes. However, in Kathy's case, it is intentional!
I'd bone either of them <====3
I hope she doesnt mind my saying so but Kathy and I are an item. Making love to her is the best then afterwards her digging the lint out of my belly button is divine. I love her so!
I hardest thing about comedy..timing!!
I think the better park of Kathy Griffin is still stuck in the ass crack of the goat that her daddy slept with. Seriously. If you have a problem with an individual, you deal with that person. You dont start picking on underage children or family in general. It shows a complete lack of tact on her part. She should do the world a favor and retire. Find a nice ditch, crawl in and die. Thank you
Someone already dumped on palins face?
Or, is that g'ma idea of fakeup and hair buns to excite her billy base!
