Kathy Griffin Wants 'Dirty Lesbian' Suze Orman For President

November 7th, 2009 12:50 AM

Comedienne Kathy Griffin believes it's "only a matter of time" before personal finance expert Suze Orman is President of the United States.

Why you may ask.

"Because you want a nice, financially focused, dirty lesbian running this country."

So said Griffin Friday during an absolutely preposterous conversation with fellow comedienne Joy Behar on the latter's HLN program (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript):

JOY BEHAR, HOST: The Christmas album, let's talk about that. Why is there no X-rated Christmas album really? You're not talking about Christmas in this album.

KATHY GRIFFIN, COMEDIENNE: Well, no. By the way, this, this CD is called "Suckin' It For The Holidays" really to grab your attention. The language in the CD is much worse than that, and I am out to offend a lot of groups. Let me just read you some of the titles.

BEHAR: Okay.

GRIFFIN: One of them is, it starts with "Happy Kwaanza" because I enjoy making fun of all religious groups. And I enjoy Kwaanza because as far as I know it's a made up holiday that's only about seven years old. And then there is a section about President Suze Orman because I believe that Suze Orman will and should be President.


GRIFFIN: It's only a matter of time. Because, I'll tell you why. Because you want a nice, financially focused, dirty lesbian running this country. And the bailout would not have happened, none of this Wall Street mess would have even happened if America could have been in the "Can I Afford It" segment of the Suze Orman Show.

BEHAR: Yes, it's true.

GRIFFIN: It's only a matter of time before she's President Orman.

BEHAR: Okay.

GRIFFIN: And then, but I do try to offend many people and try to let no one get out unscathed.

That's for sure. Do any of you feel unscathed?
