Watch: Sarah Palin Unsheathes Claws For "Bully" Kathy Griffin

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro asked Sarah Palin how she feels about comedienne Kathy Griffin playing a "Tea Party candidate," one some say resembles Palin, on an upcoming episode of Glee.

Clearly Palin's not too pleased about the casting, or Griffin, whom she calls a "50-year old bully" and a "has-been."

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 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is...

She's kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of 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 too far.

Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.

If Griffin were indeed to fly up to Alaska, and the two women came to blows, my money would be on Mama Grizzly Palin. Something tells me she knows how to handle herself in such a situation.

Watch Palin throw down the gauntlet, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. So lets recap -

    Bristol and her little sister go on Facebook and hurl gay slurs at people who did not think Bristol was a very good dancer.

    Kathy correctly takes offense at that - and their parenting.

    Sarah then lies and says they were responding to people making fun of their Down Syndrome brother. (A 100% lie.)

    Now Sarah is still attacking Kathy.
    Hmmm - the scary thing is I believe Sarah is mentally unwell and actually believes the lies she creates to make herself feel the victim....

  2. Bully is being applied to the wrong person here.

  3. I love Fox's misleading headline -- Kathy isn't playing Palin. She's supposedly playing a Tea Party character that RESEMBLES Palin. Not the same thing. And I'd hardly call a two-time Emmy winner (and performer who sells out myriad shows a year) a "has been." I think the best way Kathy could "play" Palin on GLEE is to WALK OUT half way through the episode. :-)

  4. You know Kathy is LOVING this! Soon, she'll have start paying the Palins residuals. Keep the material coming, Sarah.

  5. You give Palin way too much credit. Kathy Griffin could make mincemeat of the entire Palin family before they knew what hit them. If Sarah Palin doesn't like the way people talk about her family, then she shouldn't have put them on TV. Of course, that's far too logical of a concept for her to fathom.

  6. @Tank I agree, great material for KG.
    @Abie, agree with you as well.
    KG is way too smart for the Palin family.

    And Faux News, channel for no-news.

  7. A NEVER-WAS calling Kathy Griffin a HAS-BEEN.

    *suffocates to death from laughter*

  8. Kathy definitely has the upper hand when it comes to verbal attacks. However, no offense to Kathy, but I'm afraid Mama Grizzly has her beat when it comes to gun play, especially from a low-flying helicopter against unarmed/unprotected animals. Furthermore, if Palin insists on remaining in the public eye, she shouldn't be so thin-skinned when it comes to criticism of herself and her VERY public family members. But, hey, she's the original lipstick-on-a-pig proponent so what would you expect?

  9. I'm guessing a blast or two of pepper spray would subdue Mama Grizzly pretty quickly.

    Kathy, are you listening?

  10. Clearly Fox had to stir up a controversy to give their media darling some additional air time. Since Palin never actually says anything meaningful, she occasionally is called upon to defend herself from these "attacks".

    However, this is a good thing and Fox is actually doing a dis-service to Palin in that a person of Presidential stature rarely responds to personal attacks. Can you picture Obama doing that? Or GW Bush? Or Clinton? Even legitimate presidential candidates like Romney, Huckabee and Gingrich rarely respond directly to personal attacks, so this pettiness from Palin reveals her to be a non-contender when the serious candidates play.

    She is clearly more concerned about her personal image than she is about any matter of national concern.

  11. The perpetually offended, whining Palin. Like all bullies, she can dish it out but can't take it.

  12. Sorry Sarah..... when you dangle your not-so-likable children out there in the media spectrum for the sake of your own publicity they become valid fauxlebrities. If you were that concerned about them you should have pulled a Royal Family move and asked that they be left alone until they come of age. This is your own doing and you can not claim that someone is unfairly targeting them.

    Game on, Kathy Griffin. Go for it.

  13. Go Sarah! Rip that ugly no-talent fag-hag apart!

  14. This woman just has no sense of how to pick her battles. She's elevating Kathy's profile just by responding to her, and de-legitimizing herself even further. Adavantage: Kathy.

  16. am i wrong but haven't the Palin kids been bullies in the past themselves? Weren't they actually involved in a cyber bullying case ? I don't keep up with the antics of such an inbred bunch of Alaskan Mooose People..but i seem to remember them using anti gay slurs? Her delicate little wallflower kids seem to be out there throwing their weight around...and publishing books now so they better get used to public criticism.

  17. How I miss Andy's blogging during weekends ..

  18. Oh how the mighty have fallen; watching Palin tangling with D-lister Griffin is the last stop on a trainwreck headed toward loserville for the whole Palin Klan. Couldnt happen fast enough for my taste. Good news is there is no way Palin recovers from this. And to that I'd like to offer Caribou Sarah a hearty "so long bioch!"


    Please Sarah, don't let the helicopter door hit you in the ass on your way back to Alaska.

  19. I actually think Palin handled herself well here. She didn't go on an all-out attack and was sensible in her rebuttal.

    Palin's not a great politician or person, but not everything she says needs to be met with criticism.

  20. "Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me..." SHE DID! She knocked on your front door, but you weren't home. She even left a note:

  21. Kathy already came to Alaska, and Sarah Palin hid in her house and had some gardener or something come and kick her off the property.

    There was a whole episode of the D-list, miss Smart Palin.

  22. After posting that map with cross hairs, Palin has the nerve to call someone else a bully? What a hag!

  23. It's nice watching the Whore of the North deperately grasping at straws to stay relevant.

  24. Miss half-term quitter is daring to call Kathy a has-been?

  25. Also-- Trig's not her baby. Just wait, the truth will come out and boy will it be a doozie.
