Sarah Palin stepped up and made a statement about comedienne Kathy Griffin and her jokes on the Palin family. Apparently, the Momma Grizzly just can’t help but get involved when people talk about her family.
“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 fifty-year-old adult bully really is what she is. Kind of a has-been comedienne and she can do those things to me. I would just ask, you know, for respect to my children as she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my sixteen-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,” said Sarah Palin on Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox News.
For one thing, a truly respectable person with political aspirations would never get involved with celebrity cat-fight drama, but Sarah Palin aims to entertain the masses with her folksy, simple ways and her ability to go from elitist to trailer-park reject with the flick of a switch.
Sarah is showing that she just takes things way too personally. If every presidential hopeful threw a fit and invited celebrities to duke it out at their houses every time a joke was made about them, there would surely be more reality television than the actual governing of the nation.
As for Kathy Griffin, earlier this year she made a comment about going after Palin’s other daughter, Willow.
“I’ve already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously. But I think it’s Willow’s year to go down. In 2011 I want to offend a new Palin,” said Griffin.
Well, that can’t be too difficult to do, since America already knows that little Willow is a bigotÂ who uses hate speech on her Facebook wall! Have at it, Kathy!
As for Sarah Palin’s challenge to Kathy to come up to Alaska, it could truly become an entertaining moment to see Kathy take her up on that offer. But if Sarah Palin’s history is an inclination to the outcome, she probably wouldn’t even show up to her own cat fight.
