Kathy Griffin Outrage (???)

I don't know. Seems that this has raised enough hackles on the conservative side that I should mention it.

On camera, she taunted some hecklers (I think) with the old, old, old (and yet still mildly amusing) anti-heckler standby, "I don't come by where you work and slap the dicks out of your mouth."

I really have no comment. She's the female, less funny (natch) Howard Stern; her humor is all personal experiences recounted in a humorous way, plus the shock stuff like giving a finger and yelling "suck my dick" to people who win Emmys she was nominated for.

I dunno. Yeah, it was on TV, but it was cable, and it was midnight or thereabouts. And it's kind of expected. She goes for the headlines. That's how a D-lister gets any press at all.

Shrug.

I guess there's some angle here about the old double-standard -- liberals can go to the old "homophobic" anti-heckler stuff like this without any fear of being criticized, whereas if I note that Gleen Grenwald has had more cock in and out of him than a Tyson Chicken Regional Distribution Center, I'm called a "hater."

Some Oddness: Just noticed. Kathy Griffin is of course very popular with gay men. In fact, gay men seem to be exclusively her audience.

Not that I'm saying she's not funny at all. She is mildly funny. But I'm afraid she loses me when she talks about "celebrities" I've never heard of. Pretty much you have to read Perez Hilton six times a day to keep up with her act.

So, anyway, Kathy Griffin, a commedianne patronized pretty much exclusively by aging yuppie homosexuals, keeps being featured as prominent guest on Anderson Cooper's New Year's bash.

What gives? How does he even know about her in the first place? It's a mystery to me.


GriffiN, not Griffith: Sheesh, I misspelled her name like ten times.

I did that on purpose.

Just trying to show I'm so straight I don't even really know who she is.
