Kathy Griffin booed for Bristol Palin joke

After defending her mother to Margaret Cho, Bristol Palin now has fighting words for Kathy Griffin.

While hosting the December 3 VH1 "Divas Salute the Troops" concert, the 50-year-old comedian took a jab at Palin, saying that the former "Dancing With the Stars" competitor "is the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight ... She gained, like, 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. She's like the white Precious."

The crowd booed Griffin - and clearly, they weren't the only ones who failed to find the humor in her wisecracks.

In a statement to Fox News, 20-year-old Palin said, "The audience's reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too. I hope people didn't have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.”

As Marquee previously reported, Griffin's fellow comic Cho also had harsh words for Palin, alleging that Sarah Palin forced her daughter to do "DWTS" so the public would forget Bristol's notoriety as a teen mom and the former governor of Alaska would gain fans if she runs for president in 2012. Bristol has denied those claims.

    While KG should hardly be casting dispersions about someone's looks, I find the entire Palin clan to be the most repulsive, self-involved, moronic cast of fools ever put upon the earth. Why they are still news is beyond reason? It's frightening to me to think that people actually could think of Sarah as a possible candidate. She's not qualified to be anything other than contestant in a GILF pageant.

    Wow! They booed her when she was telling the truth. Palin is a fat pig. And she clearly didn't lose a damn pound on that show. That makes her the ONLY contestant to not lose weight on DWTS. Pathetic.

    Now the left understands what the rest of us have been saying FOR DECADES about the Kennedys. "Just go away. We don't like you. We don't like your kind. You're obnoxious. And you're not even good looking. You've 'angled' your way into office and/or the public consciousness. And you don't know anything about politics."

    Do you know how many times I have heard Sarah Palin's minutes of fame will soon be up? You people are dreaming with a capital D and the D stands for denial in this case. This lady is going to be with us no matter what.Everything she has done has been a success. She has wounded obamacare from its original intent with death panels,she has had two best selling books,Oprah had her twice in a month because it was her most watched show in five years,her show on TLC is the most watched ever,and she is part of the number one cable news network. If you think for one second this lady is done with the way the economy is and now that security leak a week ago,I got news for you because you are in for a long haul. She is going to play this right to 2012. You have no idea how mad liberals are about the tax cut for the wealthy.Obama will be challenged within his own party and that throw the election to the GOP,especially if things don't pick up.

    The Palins can dish it out, but they can't take it when someone "goes rogue" on them. So, even though Kathy's humor is not funny to me, the last laugh is on the Palins for their extreme audacity to suggest unfair treatment. The Palins are friggin idiots with a whole lot of redneck friggin idiot followers (a.k.a. teabaggers). What's scary is that each of these friggin idiots's votes counts the same as mine. That's why the 2012 election could be SCARY.

    Not everyone thinks Kathy Griffin is funny, but that's a matter of opinion. KG doesn't care. ( I think she's hilarious)Obviously enough people do think she's funny because she's more successful than ever. And as far as Bristol is concerned...she danced like a pig and has the personality of a pig...and sort of looks like one too. If she doesn't like being the butt of a joke then quit being a joke. Bristol is a JOKE, just like her Mom.

    While I have never been a fan of either woman, and can say I have never watched a single episode of DWTS what amazes me is the lack of rage over her comment to go ahead and boo here " she knows WAR IS HELL". How could she possibly have a clue as to what war is like. The last time I checked there were no wars in Beverly Hills, and she never served one day in ANY branch of our military.That is not comedy and if an apology is needed by KG it is to the service men and women that have chosen to serve their country.

    Kathy Griffin may be off color in some of her remarks, but, as someone who worked to get Sarah Palin get elected as Governor of Alaska, I consider the Palin family t be a total joke. Sarah is a self satisfying (based strictly on her personal income) b-–, she has no regard for anything but her own bank account. I feel like she duped the whole State of Alaska, who believed in her, and now expects the uninformed population of the US to believe her. I'm sure if she did get elected, she'd quit in the mist of any CRISIS. Don't be stupid and don't believe her or any of her family members. Not biased, just been disappointed in her performance. j

    I just think that it is funny that the article is talking about Kathy making a joke about someones weight, which can be a form of bullying, while using a picture of Kathy standing at a "The Trevor Project" event! The Trevor Project is all about stopping bullying of gay youth and here is an article with Kathy bullying Bristol. Not offended by Kathy, but enjoy the irony of the context of the article put together with the context of the picture. Really CNN?? There weren't other pictures to use?

It's sad to see a pathetic comedian had bad choice to tell that kind of joke in front of most military members that have children. I dont have kids and I am offended. I think from now on she should be ban from doing any shows for the military.

    Wow. I know many of these comedians are liberals. But some of the comments in December have been crossing the line from comedy into downright hate. Cho, Griffin, Jon Stewart on the Daily show and more ... I'm not sure if they can't stand how people have rejected Obama and voted for conservative candidates over liberal. Or maybe they are so disillusioned with Obama themselves that they have to blame someone. While they always made fun of conservative values before, now they've gone hostile towards such beliefs and anything not fitting in their tiny view of the world.

People that don't like Kathy Griffin's comedy...i guess, that's their opinion, but I love over the top humor and find her to be very fast on her feet and doesn't hold back.

    It is not hipocrasy that the Democrats make fun of Republician's children. but thier children are off limits...Not True Big JohnDooshBag! Jenna Bush and her sister had some minor in posession arrests in Austin,TX so that is far game. On the other hand Chelsey Clinton was joked about for being ugly. I think Bristol should be called out for being a bad dancer and not because she has a FAKE SELF SERVING MOTHER. I feel sorry for her having a woman like that for a mother.

    We shouldn't be distracted and worked up over this kind of news. The big issue is how Obama is bowing to the Republicans feet and passing tax cuts for people making millions BTW everyone should have received a tax cut on the first $250,000 earned anyways even if you made tens of millions/billions. The Republicans threatened to not allow extending unemployment checks for the millions of unemployed unless Obama aggreed. Plus they will not come onboard with the upcoming Start talks with Russia.

    @bigjohn, did you hide under a rock during the Clinton presidency, or the Carter adminisrtation? Chelsea Clinton was constantly ridiculed as was Amy Carter (both children of democrats!), and Amy Carter had some very cruel things said about her.
    By appearing on DWTS, Bristol Palin placed herself in the spotlight, and is now getting the attention of a lot of people, and it's not all good. By paying attention to so many who've gone the road before her, she should have known what was coming. And furthermore, can you honestly say she didn't use being the child of Sarah Palin to try to attain her own sort of celebrity? None of us can pick and choose what is said about us, or by whom. We all have to deal with nasty remarks, and if any of the rest of us entered the world of celebrity, we'd be dealing with it on the same public level we willingly chose to place ourselves in.

    No comic gets a good house every night. Sometimes you have to play to a pile of bricks. You can't beat yourself up when you get booed by a pile of bricks. Bristol is an ungainly, terrible dancer. She was only on the show because she's Sarah Palin's kid and the most famous unwed mother in American (celebrity?). She only stayed on because right wing crazies voted for her over better dancers. If a standup comic can't make fun of that, what CAN they make fun of? You can lead a horse to water, but you can't give it a sense of humor.

Get off of the TV if you can't handle the remarks. As I recall, not too long ago, Bristol was on the other end of this 'slap-down' for being an un-wed, teen mother.

    First, Griffin is a hack! She never was or will be funny. Second, I dislike Sarah Palin almost as much as I dislike Griffin because they represent the two extremes of America that do nothing for this nation except make it look stupid. As for the "joke", that was beneath even the crude comedy of Griffin. It appears to me that Griffin wanted to attack Sarah but was too afraid to take on the grown up version so Bristol became the target.

She knows all you racist bigot conservatives hate her but she knows that all her adoring fans love her even more so she never misses a chance to play that up and you goobers fall for it every time. If you care to research Kathy, you will see she has done her fair share to support out troops with trips to Iraq and Afghanistan to do so.

    The article is clearly written by someone who doesn't like Kathy Griffin, yet she makes a very handsome living by being controversial and causing a stir. Honestly... don't you guys get it? I recall she was "booed" at another concert a year or two ago and when I saw the show on television, the audience was responding by a big groan, not a boo and at the end, Kathy had a standing ovation. Methinks this is the case here. Let's be totally honest here... Bristol had no business being in "Dancing with the Stars"... she edged out Brandi who was clearly a heck of a better dancer than Bristol and was far more attractive. Bristol would be a big fat zero if her mother wasn't such a celebrity. Bristol is also not a "star".. she is a new figure. She did okay on the show and she gave it her best, but she has the personality of a hamster and her dancing would have been zero without her talented and energetic dance partner. Like Kathy I am sick to pieces of the Palins. The celebration of the dull and lifeless is just a fad and Kathy and Cho will continue to make fun of it and get the laughs.... and groans and continue to laugh all the way to the bank.

    "To my fans,

    I want to thank you for your support. Given that 1/2 of Americans are overweight, I can see why you defend me. However, the weight I have gained is not from being like you big folk. I'm pregnant with my 2nd child. My mother contacted Heidi Fleiss in Nevada who is working on an all-male brothel. Mother bought out the brothel for a night so that I may conceive a 2nd child. It was a special night. After a couple rounds of antibiotics post-brothel night, I found out I was pregnant. I am working hard to narrow down the father (either Larry or Buck), but mother has indicated to me that she may just purchase a "proper" male whom I can use as the father for media purposes. Btw, my "dancing" on DWTS was the best I could do given that I haven't been able to properly walk since the magical night at the stud ranch. Also, I want everyone to know my mother is mentally fragile at this moment. Her meds aren't alleviating much of her chronic diarrhea these days...so she is a bit irritable. As always, much love to my fans, and keep trucking along, Weight Watchers does work! And finally, a big thank you to my boys at the stud ranch! Can't wait to see you all again! Peace. -BP-"

    Are you kidding me (pun intended...)? Really? Hate-filled humor? Kathy Griffin doesn't hate Bristol Palin, she doesn't even know the Palin family. When did we start taking comedians seriously? What's scary to me is that there are people in our society who believe, because they see people on TV or read about them in a magazine (or online), that they somehow intimately know them. Most celebrities wouldn't give you the time of day (I've known a few and they are not all who you see on the big screen....). Wake up and break free from your delusions! And please, stop embarrasing yourself by defending someone you've never even met. Think about this, most parents I know that truly put family first do everything they can to spend more quality time with their kids. They don't spend their time away from them doing a reality show, eh-hmm Kate Gosselin, to further their own personal agenda. I work to support my family. These people "work" to support their ego.

    Every comedian has "their" schtick. Some are more story tellers (Gabriel Iglesias) or a general comedian (Bill Cosby, Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy), make fun of themselves (Joan Rivers, the late Rodney Dangerfield) while others run into the candid/often crude humor (late George Carlin, has-been Andrew Dice Clay). Each finds their own "niche" and has some following. Long ago, I found little of Kathy's routines funny as she makes her attacks more personal. However, the next person may find them humorous...Until more folks tune her out – she'll linger around, though I am surprised she's lasted as long as she has.

    Why is this pudgy untalented, uneducated, uncivilized teen-mother even relevant? Oh yeah, this is the United States of Fear and Reality Shows brought to you by FOX and affiliates. She and her mother are laughing all of the way to the bank why poor pathetic individuals in this thread like John and James defend this trashy family and build up their media worth.
    You people that support this family are as trashy, stupid, and unpatriotic as they are....ignorant folks tend to gravitate towards one and other clearly.

    I can't for the life of me see the attraction of Kathy Griffin as a comedian or anything else for that matter. She is FAR from funny and I'm not sure how she has made it this far as a comedian. That being said, as far as the Palin's go, if you put yourself out there, then expect negative as well as positive comments. If you can't take the negative along with the positive then get out of the limelight.

    Probably not a good thing to make a joke at the expense of a undereducated, overweight teenage girl who had a child out of wedlock. That comes off as a little mean. Her crazy mother, on the other hand, is fair game.

    I get so tired of this...Ms. Griffin is a comedian, folks. You don't have to laugh if you don't find humor, but taking offense and getting bent out of shape over demonstrates incredible ignorance. Let it go. She can say whatever she wishes (and usually does)and I appreciate it even if I do not agree. Kathy Griffin is a strong woman and an edgy performer. Booing her was in poorer taste than any comment she made. We need more Kathy Griffins in this society.

    Comedians are equal opportunity offenders. They comment on, poke fun at, make observations about...... pop culture, politics, etc. That said, there is nothing "wrong" about what Kathy Griffen said about Bristol Palin. Kathy simply made an observation about Bristol's lack of weight loss during the show. And what everyone here is forgetting, is that IT'S TRUE! Kathy isn't doing anything but pointing out REALITY. Bristol did not lose weight during the show. And practically everyone who has been on this show prior to Bristol HAS lost weight. So.....all Kathy is doing is making a comment about the reality of the situation. There's nothing "wrong" with that. If you don't like reality......and/or can't handle discussing reality......then you've got a problems that are better addressed by a shrink then a entertainment blog.

Below is a list of symptoms of the mental disorder Reality Dyslexia also known as Liberalism. Keep in mind that some of these symptoms may apply to other mental disorders, however, if you exhibit 3 or more at the same time then you are classified as a liberal.
    1. Unable to control anger.
    2. Chronic dishonesty. (This includes the chronic incidence of stating unfounded opinion as fact.)
    3. Act irresponsibly then blame others for the results.
    4. View all other people as less intelligent than you.
    5. Jealous of people who have more money than you and covet their property or wealth.
    6. True motivation is self-benefit. (People with this symptom usually also employ symptom 2.)

I know several, and its not THAT big of a deal. They are wonderful parents!!! It does not make them horrible people. And to make fun of her about her weight...seriously? What happend to making girls feel confident about the way they look instead of making them feel bad about themselves. Honeslty. Booo on your Kathy Griffin.

    The Palins are fair game for jokes. Like other reality celebrities, it comes with the territory. I thought it was funny. People in here getting in a big hissy seem to be defending this asinine thought that Bristol is a victim in this scenario. Come on. If anyone has seen Kathy live or on her show, she makes fun of herself just as much as the trainwreck celebrities she lambasts. She doesn't take herself seriously. Some of you Palin-lovers take yourselves too darn seriously...its 2010, people make jokes...so she gave a zinger in Bristol's weight...who cares. Maybe if the Palin family wasn't so tweet-happy, Facebook-obsessed and actually cared for their young children, they wouldn't be able to push themselves in the media so much. This family is completely unrelatable.

    Its pretty sad when the comedians are told who they can and can not make jokes about. I for one agree with both Kathy and Margaret. Bristol did nothing to earn my respect. She is an unwed mother, who dropped out of high school. She has no life knowledge other than what her mother has taught her, and that's whats so sad. Look at the other "cute" palin girls sounding off on face book. What a great upbringing they had! Their mom quits the job of Alaska governor before the term ends..to write a book, be on TV...to boast her ego. In my opinion, I am ashamed of all of them.

    I'm getting so tired of comedians believing we care about their political opinions. I could care less what Griffin thinks about Palin. I think it's a sign that some comedians really don't have anything funny to say, or that they can't come up with good material, so they try to make attacking others funny. I'm not necessarily a Palin fan, but I'm not a Griffin fan either. Griffin's mediocre at best, and has struggled in her profession for years. The strange part is that comedians like Griffin actually believe there's a big audience for their "attacking the conservatives" style. People see through it. It's kind of pathetic. I'm embarrassed for Griffin – you know – the kind of embarrassed where you wish the person could see themselves but they don't, and they go on and on making a fool of themselves?

    The Palins are an easy target, and lame "comedians" love easy targets. There are lines of decency with the public, and making weight jokes about a 20 year old girl who was clearly trying her best on DWTS crossed those lines. Whether you like Bristol Palin or not, you have to admire how she is handling this...especially in the public eye. It took guts for her to go on DWTS knowing the ridicule she would face and how people would make fun of her. That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger:)

I didn't watch DWTS but everything that I read and heard was that Bristol did a good job. She stepped up to the plate, put herself out in the public spotlight and did the best she could... which turned out to be pretty good. If someone is now telling jokes about her, it's because she had "made it". If she didn't want the attention, good or bad, joking or serious, then she should have stay off the show. She's now known for more than being Sarah's daughter. She doesn't want the individual attention?? Too bad, she stepped out from behind her mom, she can't step back. She should just run with it, make her own jokes in return and show the country that not only can she dance, but she has a sense of humor and can laugh at herself.

    When Bristol put herself out there, she allowed herself to be fair game for commentary – any commentary. While I watched, I wondered 1) how she felt about her weekly placement (so obvious popularity trumped talent) 2) how it seemed hypocritical after denouncing Levi's time in the spotlight 3) why Sarah chose book signing over attending Bristol's finale, and 4) who was watching her child. I believe Bristol's agreeing to participate had more to do with her being a pawn to her mother's ambitions.

    Don't feel sorry for fatty Bristol. Reports she was paid 250k for her disatrous performance in DWTS. Not bad for a hillbilly Wasillian who works as a office manager in a doc's office

    the Palins deserve all the dissing there is.

    Kathy is correct about one thing, Sarah Palin will use anything, including her children, to achieve her goals. Kathy is just calling it as it is. The Precious joke is hilarious and based in truth which is what you critics should be upset about. The Palin empire is what is offensive here. Not the brilliant Kathy Griffin!

Seriously...yes, she's not a stick....but does that mean she should go hide and never show her face? White Precious...really Kathy? Just because you starved yourself (P.S. u look good from the front, but OLD and wrinkly from the back Kath) to be skinny means you should pick on Bristol, someone who may not beat you in the body area, but definitely in the face area!?!

Kathy I've often defended you being called a "hollywood bully", but can not defend what was clear cut ugly, mean and bully like! I know your mother is pulling her hair out! I know you'll make poor Tiffany or Tom read everything that was written about you, so I'm sure you'll get this message....stick to being a comedian who reports on the inside happenings of hollywood and stop trying to get media coverage for shock value....your star was rising, but quickly falling from the sky!

    Kathy has hit a new low. She'll make a joke at anyone's expense without thinking of how her stupid her remarks may actually hurt someone. The opportunity to do DWTS gave Bristol an opportunity to earn funds that will surely be used to secure her son's future. I am sure her son's dead beat sperm donor won't contribute much..Any other unwed teen would probably go on oublic assistance–I say kudos to Bristol for moving forward and NOT being a drain on the system. Kathy needs a real dose of sensivity training, to realize that some of her stupid jokes come at a great expense to somone else. She should look in the mirror and will find that much of her material could be at herself. From her red hair, oval face...all she needs is a wart on her face and she could let the old hag jokes come forth. She should NOT have made comments about a young girl, regardless of who her mother is. It was a cheap shot and she needs to know this. I know comedians need to have material that will make people laugh, but I think she needs to leave the younger celebrities alone as this could be very hurtful to them. Some may agree wih me, others will not. Kathy ineeds to rethink some of her material or just keep poking fun at herself, not the young adults who may take these jokes/insults to heart.

    I actually noticed that Bristol Palin did not lose weight during DWTS. We've seen several somewhat chunky people take it off, such as Joey Fatone. But I don't notice that Margaret Cho lost any weight, either, and Griffin didn't pick on her.

    Bristol should never have been on the show–and certainly should not have lasted as long as she did, which was arranged by a voting bloc supporting her mother–but making her the butt of a joke (no pun intended) about her appearance is tasteless. It's bullying, pure and simple.

People love a girl who was not responsible to protect herself and be a mother of a child that his dad is a low life idiot just like the mother and the whole family. Lets reward her.. give me a break. I wish they would all go in the woods and never come back. This country is filled with a bunch of retards that like Palin for what? She is a money hungry low life trailer trash. Thank you McCain you dumb idiot for bringing this bimbo to the spolitght.

    Kathy is the best when she makes fun of herself. I like her. But it's apparent she did not consider the bullying aspect of this comment. The actress that played Precious and Bristol's weight. Another famous person with a platform making fun of young people weight issues. Chances are that 90 Percent of that audience has someone they love that is overweight. Hence the reaction. Kath, please consider your position, not 69, and the implications that your words have on young people.

    Bristol did not ASK to be put on the show – she was ASKED by ABC to do exactly what she did – raise ratings and cause the uneducated viewers to foam at the mouth and fight over the contestants. Those who do not realize that they are being manipulated for ratings are probably the same ones who cheer Kathy Griffin – mindless airheads who don't know when their money is being removed from their wallets to enrich others. If you believe any 'reality' show is real, you are nothing more than another mouth-breather who's emotions are easily manipulated for other peoples' profit – and you deserve whatever you get.

    Griffin is a foul-mouthed comedienne who insults and makes fun and even threatens other people in her boring and effusive tirades. She has made a profession out of being as nasty, cruel and insulting, all the time whining about not being able to make the "A" list. She tries – and fails miserably – to imitate the Divine Miss M, even and especially in her pathetic attempts to appeal to the gay community. She just doesn't grasp that cruelty may be funny for a minute or two, but 'even' gays have moms, dads, brothers and sisters, they have the same problems as everyone else with weight and appearance and co-ordination – and making gays into 2-dimensional stereotypes, as Griffin does, insults them. She too shall pass – like a bad mexican dinner.

    Maybe they booed because Briston is a teenager and there was once a time where our country had enough class to leave the children of politiicans and celebrities out of the personal attacks. We did it for Chelsea Clinton and many others as we should have. If you want to go after the mom, go for it. but she's a kid!

    It's clear... Bristol Palin... darl, you're an insecure individual. That is usually the main reason you would respond to a joke from a famous comedian. (Dear God/gosh girl!) Some advice hun, you do look desperate when u try so hard to make an established comedian (who will continue to do this sort of thing over and over again) look foolish. (They are comedians, they feed off you... Off anything really... They search for easy prey!)
    Bristol Palin, you need to grow up and stop responding to these sort of attacks. Yes, I know that you feel that you have to defend your family name and dignity, but really Bristol, the way you defend your family reveals something about you instead gorgeous. It does gives you publicity but mostly it makes the comedian you are discussing come out on top. (She gets booed yes, but you need to realize that that is what she wanted all along and the best response Kathy could have received.) That's what makes her so popular... She becomes better known for the 'controversy!' (The audience fell for her cheap tricks, which is why I do love Kathy).
    So Bristol... Stop. Just hush up and do your thing and live your life. Be happy & don't let the media get the better of you. Stop looking like your not very smart by responding to every personal attack. I don't mean to be abrasive by saying that but, to me, it reveals weakness on your side if you 'need' to respond to every stupid, simple & dumb attack (because you obviously missed the joke my dear girl! No one likes someone who doesn't get it). We won't think less of you if you don't respond. Believe me babe, no matter what you decide to do when someone criticizes you, I am the only one who is trying to get you to stop and disappear! Please darl, in the nicest way possible, stop appearing on my browser... Live your life, like you said you wanted, privately. It's only a joke!

    The Palin's fame is about being on the radar and being judgemental about people and lifestyles that don't meet with their approval. Bristol spoke about the approval of her decent friends. Who are her indecent friends? Bristol "hopes that people didn't pay money to hear(Kathy) negativity and criticisms." Bristol is an self appointed (more or less) teen spokesperson, who is, paid $15k an appearance for her personal negativity and criticisms. Yes she worked hard at her dance skills, you can see the difference over the weeks. But, her performances were wooden? During her performances she looked as if she was having a root canal with Craftsman power tools. Her partner should have been Steeven Segal or Billy off of Melrose Place. Actually this was her beauty contest. The "bigot banner/sash" was passed from Anita Bryant to Sarah Palin, and now Sarah can pass the banner to Bristol. It is their "god given right" to be bigots. Actually it is their "god encouraged right" to be intolerant and critical since the bible is the "word of god."

    Kathy Griffin is one of the absolute worst comedians I've encountered. She reminds me of nothing more than a loud-mouth drunk who crosses any boundary and doesn't know when to shut-up. And she can't hide the fact that she's 50, either. Her face sags lower each year. Give her the boot.

    Ms. Griffin leaves noone behind in her routine, laughing harder at herself than anyone. The Palin family need not take themselves so seriously and realize the humor in the spectacle they have created. Teen mom gets pregnant with second child different father and when she replaces the glass on her roof can mouth off about Kathy Griffin! I will give her mom Sarah this and although I'm not a fan of hers; she raised her tea cup and caused enough of a stir to get Americans to have a voice, either way, and VOTE!

    Why is everyone in an uproar over the comment? Kathy should be applauded for her attempts to bring to light the severity of the problem within the Republican base. Not only do the Republican's have Sarah Palin, who by the way is wearing a red bandana around her head as a signal to stop thinking and let her do the thinking for you and will show you the best way to hunt an Elk, the Republican's also have John Boehner and Glenn Beck wanting to build their Noah's Ark to make everyone think that the world is coming to an end and that if you are not part of their party you will not be counted as an American.Then their is clearly pathelogically inept soon to be Czar Shumkiss who thinks that God will pop in and save everyone after he has relaxed the restriction's on the regulation's required by companies to maintain an environmentally safe company just so the religious right nut jobs assigned to complain about the problem will be paid off with government money that they would then funnel to other members of the religious right and Republican base to use for political campaigning.

    Republican's are the ones causing the problem in the country. What's wrong can't own up to your lies, rumors and gossip's about people but rather put a man upon a cross to protect you and your stolen belief from the reality of the world. The reality of the world which is religion does not run the planet, science has already figured out how the planets works which by the way everyone should look at the Christian Science Monitor as another money laundering front for the Religious Right and the Republican's.

    Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. You should have thought about that the day you put a gun to my back as well as forcing us to watch the beheading of Nick Berg to force us to sit around and listen ot your BS.

Now how the hell would this person know that? Some say that Sarah made her children targets by bringing them on the campaign trail. Most candidates with underage children did the same thing. So, did that make ALL candidates children targets? NO...just the Palins. We all saw that. The topic of this article was what Kathy said....She got booed because the soldiers did not like it. Simple as that. Accept it. Kathy cannot stand Sarah because she stands for a different ideology...For many of you other fools on here insinuating that Sarah is stupid, shows your stupidity. She is a very bright and articulate woman who knows what she believes in and is not AFRAID to say it. Now, that, is AMERICAN to me. The LEFT is always going after Palin because they fear her. Simple as that. I see that all the time. DWTS is an unfair show in that they bring on people who are already dancers and have them compete against people who have never had dance lessons. How is that Fair? Bristol was not that great of a dancer to begin with, but, over time she did improve. But, for God sake....there was no way she could compete against those that danced for a living. Of course, the Liberals jump on that. How stupid. Your vile and hateful ways always seem to come back and bite you in the butts....The Palins are an ALL AMERICAN FAMILY and it eats at you. Sure, they have their problems....What family doesn't? But, the left has been relentless in going after this family. If Sarah was not a threat, why is the LEFT always going after her? There are more people out here who have respect for their family than don't. It just seems the MOVE.ON crowd chose to get on here today. Kathy was wrong in what she said.

My grandmother's family whom he was visiting said to him, "Did you hear Pearl Harbor was just attacked?" At that point the radio spit out the message that all naval personnel were required to return to their assigned places. My grandfather went back did his duty in the navy, got out married that girl of his dreams with that great smile and together they had great kids and great grandkids and were married for over 50 years. I will always remember the story of how my grandfather met my grandmother on the day Pearl Harbor was attacked and how he like thousands of others just like him faced and dealt with December 7th, 1941!

She's a woman with her finger on the pulse.If you're in public life, you're fair game for comedy.If Bristol is too thin skinned to be made fun of as a public figure, she should crawl back in the hole from where she came, and take back her ignorant, gun-toting, inarticulate, illiterate, misinformed, out-of-touch, bigoted mother, and while she's at it, she can take her mother's followers, too.

    Okay 2 things:

Though I do appreciate that she'll say anything for a laugh and I actually had seen this joke before to the exact oposite of results.
    2: Bristol, stop generalizing Kathy's audience to agrandise your own. To say that the "decent people" I know probably would have booed her too is rediculous because of course they would have booed THEY KNOW YOU!
    In short like it or not Kathy is a comedian making fun of celebrities and the Palins are just that like it or not, and when you get on a show like dancing with the stars, guess what you can get on the list easily without using the excuse "relatives of politicians are off the table."

There was as guy in the audience with a sweatshirt with the Univ of Oklahoma logo and the comedian asked him if he had attended OU (as it is commonly referred to ). The guy said yes, he graduated from OU. Then the comedian asked him if he'd run into Bristol Palin at OU and before the guy could answer the comedian said "stupid me – Bristol didn't go to OU she went to Ho U". Everyone in the audience was just rolling with laughter. PS If you don't get the joke find someone who is hipper than you (which means just about everyone else) and ask them to define the word "ho" for you.

    The Palin's don't seem to be able to handle ridicule like other public figures. They truly believe they are special people and are somehow worthy of the attention they receive. They're little more than high class white trash out to soak up as much publicity as they can before it all goes bye-bye.

    Can't wait 'till Big Sarah makes her presidential bid. She'll be outed once and for all as the lipstick wearing pig she is, assuming the Republicant's wrongly assume she's electable.

    "If Ronad Reagan could hold public office – why not Sarah Palin? Are you sure he was smarter than her? Why? Because she is a woman?"

    Well, Reagan spoke English for starters. He was also head of a union and governor of a large state - a job he did not quit. The population of Alaska is about the size of the city of Seattle. If Palin could not handle the small time problems of a gossippy backwater with a government that was barely in session, why would one think she could handle being president? Because she has "executive experience"? Guess who has more.

    Let's not forget that Bristol and her younger sister recently attacked a boy via a social media site for posting "Palin's Alaska #fail." Bristol is an adult. She is no longer a child. People need to quit treating her like one. She needs to be responsible for her actions. What Kathy Griffen said about her wasn't a joke it was a fact. Quit feeling sorry for her. Being Palin's daughter doesnt excuse her from ridicule. She put herself out there for people to judge when she decided to be on reality TV.

    The elite liberals in the media/entertainment complex have taken aim at the Palins because the brainwashed liberal followers lap it up.

    But it's easy to see why....

    They elected Obama who has gone on to bail out the wealthy, extend the patriot act, oversee $3 gas, bumble through the worst oil spill ever, escalate the Afghan war, and as of today gut social security.

    In other words: Obama is more conservative than Bush ever was!

    So now the libtards have to take frustration out on a 20 year old non politician.

    Liking or disliking Bristol Palin has nothing to do with being Republican or Democrat. It's the fact that a no-talent, do-nothing, knocked-up teen (oh, sorry... teen activist...) has been propped up because of nothing more than her camera-grabbing mother. Believe me, no one is afraid of Sarah Palin, she's a nitwit, who if Republicans are blind and dumb enough to push forth as their presidential candidate, will get exposed and annihilated in a debate with Obama. Let's see, Ivy League educated lawyer vs. a communications major who attended five colleges. It's actually a Republican's worst nightmare.

    The Palin comment is just another futile attempt by this low-life comedienne to try to get a laugh out of those dumb enough to watch her. She stands for nothing other than shock-value; she's the most Neanderthal-like female and thank heaven she doesn't procreate. I can't imagine being her and at the end of her life, looking back to see what she's done with it. She lives a pathetic existence, has no admirable qualities, contributes NOTHING to society and will leave no legacy other than vulgarities and a miserable attempt at being "somebody."

    Amazing that there is so much HATE SPEECH directed at Sarah Palin and her family. She is a brilliant and witty woman, fully capable of holding her own in a political debate. I would not say she is any more qualified to be President than Barack Obama was when he ran, and look what we got. He'll undoubtedly go down as one of the Worst Presidents in our nation's history.... No one vetted him or his background. They just followed his siren song, and "worshiped" him because he was a good-looking articulate black at at time when the country hungered for racial unity. Instead, we got the most divisive political machine and the most socialist, some would ever say "Marxist" government in our nation's history. So, cut the personal attacks on Palin and let's concentrate on matters of substance, like debating the best way to grow our economy and create jobs!

Bristol Palin is so over done, she didn't even belong on the show because she's not a star. Her only claim to fame was having mommy embarrased over her teen pregnancy. And now she goes around trying to tell kids not to get pregnant. Honestly, not the role model I want telling my kids not to do what she did. Kids are thinking "wow, look Bristol got pregant and ended up TV, not so bad. And she's got a nanny!"

    Every DWTS participant gets $250,000 for every week while he/she stays, regardless of the score.

    While not a Palin fan at all, I am really getting tired of all the fat jokes, specially about someone who is pretty normal by American standards. On the other hand the Palin's have to realize that they have put themselves out there for the entire world to judge. They are going to have to develop thicker skin than this. To Miss Griffin, it looks like you are running out of material.

    She agreed to be in the spotlight... it's TV, and you are an instant target.

    Oh, I left out the fact that her mom killed an animal on TV. What a woman. She didn't load her gun, she didn't know how to handle it, put her finger on the trigger as soon as the gun was handed to her. That's a good way to shoot someone.... it was all a photo op, just like Bristol on DWTS's. And did I say she's FAT? Fat as a walrus.....

There are plenty of kids targeted for being fat as well. Now if she say, called Bristol a no talent, fame-mongering, hypocrit I'd be like hey-that's true.

She accepted the offer of being on dwts, and now she has to face criticism as every other public figure. She made a coice to be public, she has to deal with jokes etc. People will say good and bad things about someone in public life. You need to grow thicker skin, and move on from it.

    For somebody who grew up sensitive and traumatized from her looks, ugly, and weight fat as a youth, she takes liberties with others looks. In fact Bristol is very attractive and Kathy is not, so there you have it. If you don't have it make fun of it, that's her whole life, that's what she needs to do to rationalize why she is sooooooo sensitive in life.

    The only reason people don't like the Palins is because they are a threat to the American way of life – part of which is to make fun of people you don't know and don't understand.

    Kathy Griffin is funny to people who are not very bright. That's fine.

    I think an episode of the Simpsons, Family Guy, and even Spongebob is infinitely more funny than this woman.

    As far as comedians go, if you think this woman is funny you were clearly not around to witness Richard Pryor and George Carlin in their prime.

    Sorry, but I just am going to go along with the fact that "Women comedians aren't funny." and point to Griffin as being not even among the best women comedian.

    If your comedy only appeals to a specific audience (left wing idiots), you will have them eating out of your hand forever because they are simpleton idiots.

The joke about Bristol was funny - in a different venue, that joke would bring the house down with laughter. The Palins inject themselves into every possible media outlet, but they are above being made fun of? No dice. They are hilarious, and they provide fodder for jokes nearly every day. If you don't like Kathy's humor, don't go to her show! Its pretty basic and simple, just like i didn't watch Bristol lumber her way across the dance floor on DWTS. I could have cared less.

    That's a pretty tame joke by comedian standards. I don't see what the big deal is. (no pun intended)

    Good for Kathy Griffin. Not everything has to be funny to everyone. But when you put yourselves in the spotlight (a la daughter and mother) you better not have a thin skin. She got fat? She better be ready for the comments.

    Why are there so many PITIFUL women who are not funny TRYING to be comedians? And why are they all so UGLY? The list is almost endless: Kathy Griffin, Joy (Joey) Behar, Margaret Cho, Conan O'Brien, Rosie O'Donnell. They all look like men in drag (especially Conan). Where are the likes of Phillis Diller and Todie Fields? OK there is ONE – Wanda Sykes. She's funny.

    I find Bristol Palin's comment completely absurd. "I hope people didn't have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.” Isn't that EXACTLY what people pay her mother for? These people are hateful and disillusion, but mostly, dishonest to the extreme.

    Kathy Griffin gets booed all the time. So what's the big deal that Bristol Palin was the punch line. Palin should be grateful to Griffin that anyone acknowledges her at all.

    I am a Marine and I was at the concert in the hangar like 3 rows back from the stage. I'll agree that Katy Griffin isn't really all that funny and that some of the jokes were just down right awful, there was NOT, i repeat, there was NOT a massive amount of boos directed at the Bristol Palin joke. Nobody cared about it or cares about it now. We just wanted to see more KP.

    From what I heard about Palin on DWST, Kathy Griffin's joke was right on. I don't watch DWTS, but I saw some pics and it DID look like Bristol Palin actually gained weight, which seems near impossible given the nature of the show. And Palin putting herself on a national spotlight like that is BEGGING for attention. What makes talented and gutsy comedians like Griffin FUNNY is she has the smarts to see things and the GUTS to talk about them and the TALENT to make them funny. And if you don't like her humor then you can go back to your Dane Cook lameness. Bravo, Kathy!

    Well, KG is actually pretty funny. But she really should stick to picking on mama grizzlies and stay away from the cubs. I guess Bristol does put herself out there, but she's a kid and she doesn't go around talking badly about other people like her mom does.

    If you go voluntarily onto the public stage, then expect and learn to handle criticism as well as praise, especially if you have little to offer. There is no "right to be a success". Only to be a hope to be reported honestly, just as in normal life. But you should very very appreciative and humble for opportunities offered that really should have gone to far more deserving people. Without your Mother's publicity, you would never have had this break.

    Palin wanted to be in the spotlight, so criticism comes with it ! I'm sorry but public figures get criticized on a regular basis ! Sarah Palin put her daughter in harm's way ! So she is getting what she asked for ! If she or her family can't take the criticism that comes with the spotlight please do us all a favor and stay in Alaska ! In fact why don't you do that anyway ! We will all be better off without hearing your constant nagging and whining !
