Kathy Griffin has much to say about Sarah Palin.
Kathy Griffin has much to say about Sarah Palin.
The feud between former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and comedienne Kathy Griffin deepened as Palin delivered a few digs this weekend on Fox News.

When asked for her reaction on Griffin playing a Palin-type Tea Party politician on an upcoming episode of Fox’s “Glee,” Palin responded saying, “You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because, you know, she’s a 50-year-old adult bully, really, is what she is — kind of a has-been comedienne.”

Palin went on to say, “She can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect to my children — 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.”

In response to Palin’s statements this weekend, Griffin went to her Twitter page and tweeted “u made my day!” after a fan voiced their support for the comedienne. Griffin went on to offer Palin and her reality TV crew tickets to her upcoming Broadway performance in New York City.

Any signs this feud will end soon? Not likely because this is what Griffin lives for. The real question may be why is a possible presidential candidate talking bad about a comedienne on Fox News?
