Palin Strikes Back at Kathy Griffin: 'Pick on Me But Leave My Kids Alone'

Sarah Palin on Saturday struck back at the vulgarian comedienne that has been attacking her and her family for years.

Appearing on Fox's "Justice with Judge Jeanine," the former Alaska governor challenged Kathy Griffin, "Come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

JEANINE PIRRO, HOST: Rumors are that Kathy Griffin is going to play a Sarah Palin Tea Party type on "Glee." What do you make of that? She hasn't been kind to you or your family, what do you think?

SARAH PALIN: 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 fifty-year-old adult bully really is what she is. Kind of a has-been comedienne and she can do those things to me. I would just ask, you know, for respect to my children as she had stated on CNN that her New Year's resolution was to destroy my sixteen-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.

PIRRO: Well, that, we’re all with you on that one, Governor.

As readers are likely aware, Griffin said earlier in the year, "I've already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously. But I think it's Willow's year to go down. In 2011 I want to offend a new Palin."

And, as NewsBusters reported a few weeks ago, "Hollywood's favorite D-list vulgarian, will apparently be playing a Tea Party candidate loosely modeled on Sarah Palin in an upcoming episode of Fox's 'Glee.'"

Unfortunately, as all this Palin-bashing gets her a great deal of attention, it seems a metaphysical certitude Griffin's not going to back off now.

This seems especially unlikely as after being tweeted by a fan of the news concerning Palin's remarks Saturday, Griffin responded, "U made my day!"
