In a typically blunt interview with the Windy City Times, Kathy Griffin discusses the ladies of The View and rips View co-host and "fucking Survivor reject" Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who has been vehement in her support of John McCain during the campaign:
"I still can’t get over the fact that Sherri Shepherd thinks the earth is flat. That’s already hysterical to me. Also, she told Bill Maher that God personally speaks to her. I am fascinated by that. Somehow, Elizabeth Hasselbeck has snowed American audiences into not knowing that she is a fucking Survivor reject. I am sorry; I am going to listen to the political beliefs of someone who wore wacky scarves on Survivor? God knows Barbara [Walters] can’t stand me, but at least I listen to her because she has interviewed every world leader, living and dead. Of course I like Whoopi and Joy very much. I get along great with them. Sherri is a pistol. But this notion that everyone has to be quiet and listen to Hasselbeck is out of control. It’s always amusing to hear her lose her points when you watch her on YouTube.com."

Griffin also weighs in on her frequent target (Gayken) Clay Aiken, and his recent coming out: "Well, I think it's really great that he came out. The picture of him holding the baby is such a powerful image because gay adoption is such a hot issue. He came out at a relatively young age. I very much applaud him for coming out at this time. He's still facing the people on Broadway every night. He's being honest with himself and his kid, and I think it's great. Doesn't mean that I am not going to make fun of him for the rest of my life, but I still think he's great."
