Kathy Griffin Is My God Now
SEPTEMBER 11, 2007: One of the most hateful people in the world I had the misfortune of intoxicating my airwaves, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, launched an attack on the glorious comedian Kathy Griffin for her Emmy acceptance speech on Saturday night, causing the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to edit the taped event for airplay this Saturday on the E! Network.
The cable network may of course have also been eager to comply with the call for censorship as they had fired Griffin from her red carpet hosting duties following a joke about child actress Dakota Fanning in 2005.
On Saturday as she accepted her award for Best Reality Program for her Bravo series "My Life on the D-List" Griffin said: "A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. Can you believe this shit? Hell has frozen over. Suck it, Jesus, this award is my god now!"
Well, Kathy, you are my god now and congratulations on the long-deserved win!
