Kathy Griffin To Emulate Sarah Palin, Join Tea Party

SarahPalinGlee225.jpgWell, that was quick. Just one day after putting out a post looking for a middle-aged "recent Tea Party candidate and home schooler -- a Sarah Palin type," Glee seems to have found their gal -- Kathy Griffin! This is going to be fun!

Get ready for some serious rage. You see, Kathy is a liberal and a comedian. She thinks Palin is dumb and uneducated. She makes fun of her daughter. She makes fun of her values. She. Makes. Fun.

Executive producer Ryan Murphy has mentioned wanting to have a right-wing student on his increasingly stunt casted show, but this seems to be the next best thing. Griffin also seems like the kind of actor that is sure to find herself back on the show a few more times after her initial appearance.

And since this is Glee, the show that forgets plotlines, drops characters and jumps the shark more often than Palin invents words, Loretta Devine will also be stopping by playing Sister Mary Constance, an exotic dancer-turned-Carmelite Nun. It's funny because an exotic dancer and nun are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Right?

Look for Palin's video response to this all very, very soon.

    And I had just removed _Glee_ from my weekly recording schedule on the DVR. I guess I'll have to change that, at least for this episode.

  • Furious D says:

    Why do I get the feeling that Mr. Murphy's bored with Glee and is looking for a way out?

  • Levi says:

    Sarah Palin is an idiot.

  • skponggol says:

    By hiring a self-proclaimed Class D comedian who takes great pride in bashing US military, Glee has sunk from class A to Class D tv series.

  • NP says:

    Yeah, I guess that's why Griffin has performed on multiple USO tours, because she loves bashing the military. Moron.

  • Luke says:

    I second NP, I've stopped watching Glee but this Kathy Griffin news has turned me back onto it! Fingers crossed she'll be back in future seasons.

  • Buffy Freak says:

    She's also raised a ton of money for the organization that provides service dogs to injured war vets...yeah that Kathy Griffin is a real military basher...

  • DEO says:

    I will watch, Kathy is very funny.....so is $arah!

  • Kathy says:

    To bad yours is the first post.......most would say that Griffin couldn't get any worse.......but then she surprises you...why do people pay to see her ..there's no talent there .....just an extra large foul mouth.
    Sarah has already won the battle she has more going for than Griffin could ever hope for..........GO SARAH........
    Levi.......GROW UP...........

    I think it's funny that Sarah Palin has finally been trapped by Kathy. Because Kathy will take it all the way. It's her style and she can really open things up. Palin can't do that. It would hurt her politicaly. So Kathy has her right were she wants her. The last video of Palin on tv...someone from the news was asking her about Kathy. Good she was on tv because even then a few words slipped out. Palin is way passive aggresive. Go Kathy Palin is an idiot. I think Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska...okay Sarah. LOL
