    In her apology, she explained that she’s comedian, and didn’t know that her prank wasn’t funny. Paging @daviddeeble

    Ramirez has a gift for summing a situation up, doesn’t he?

    Griffin is a pathetic person. More pathetic is the society that has allowed her to eat up public air waves for so very long.

    Looks exactly like her. Bill Maher and others have done the same thing when castigated for saying/doing something disgusting: “I’m a comic.” That’s always supposed to be an excuse. I almost feel sorry for Kathy Griffin. I mean she was never a huge success, and this was such an obvious plea for attention and relevancy. I think she thought she’d be lionized by the left. Instead, even they disowned her, and now she’ll have to get a job at a taco stand and wear a paper hat to work. Why can’t I stop smiling.

    Mr. Rand dragged me to see her show here in Chicago about 10 years ago. I walked out in the middle. She was vile then. She is vile now. She is trash and god willing we’ll hear no more from her.

    She’s been easily ignore-able for years. I never understood why CNN has a new year’s eve party show; for elderly shut ins?

    Her “apology” sounded to me like legal authorities made her watch a few hours of actual beheadings until she found them not funny anymore.

    I don’t find Kathy Griffin funny or very entertaining. I would put her in the lower tier of comedic entertainers.

    However, given her unfunniness and lower status in the entertainment community, you have to give her credit for getting her name in the public headlines for the better part of a week.

    Next career move …. a run for the Senate! …. she’s originally from Oak Park, Illinois, but I would suggest her best bet would be the state of Minnesota.

    I always get Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, and River Grove all muddled up as to which is which because of the similar names and proximity

    In comment sections for this story, Democrats paint a portrait of eight-plus years where Barack Obama was ripped apart by the press and pop culture like a small kitten assailed by a pack of starved jackals; I would like to visit this parallel universe they apparently inhabit:

    “Mr. O, and his family, put up with far worse!”
    “I am sure everyone would be hysterical with laughter if this had been done during the Obama presidency.”
    “i hadn’t thought about it but read it somewhere else – burning effigies of president obama were everywhere – just saying”
    “The crocodile tears and the moral outrage over this one are tough to take after 8 years of the right comparing the Obamas to apes.”
    “What Kathy Griffin did is no worse than what RACIST folks did to President Obama. They had Obama hanging and burning in effigy. Oh, so Obama being the first black president deserved it, huh!!!”
    “Were you equally outraged when Conservatives were hanging Obama’s effigy or ‘dressing’ him and Michelle up as ‘African natives’? Or is it only ‘unacceptable’ when it happens to a white guy?”

    The only thing that comes close to “dressing [the Obamas] up as African natives” I can recall is the controversial 2008 New Yorker cover – and the New Yorker is slightly to the Left of Trotsky. Uh huh – next.

    In my universe, Obama was coddled like a egg at a sixty-dollar brunch by the vast majority of the media. In the Democrats’ parallel universe, talk radio and Fox News seems to account for something like 97% of all news and entertainment media in America:

    “Griffin was wrong, but so is just about every conservative talk radio [host] who called for Obama to be lynched or Nancy Pelosi to drown in a bathtub.”

    Wow, and those people are?

    Apparently America’s number one most influential person – the one who can really shape minds and mold popular opinion – is Ted Nugent. At least, in Democrat Wacky World:

    “After the Ted Nugents, rallying cries to lynch Obama…”
    “that couild be said of many on the right such as Ted Nugent who famously threatened Obama”
    “They said nothing as Ted Nugent called Obama a “subhuman mongrel” and called for he and HIllary Clinton to be hung.”
    “Guess all those who are righteously indignant over comedian Kathy Griffin’s ‘Trump head’ joke have forgotten Ted Nugent and a host of right-wingers who advocated hanging, shooting etc, etc. President Obama.”
    “Where was this outrage when people burned effigies of President Obama, or created social media memes of him being lynched, or Ted Nugent suggested that President Obama wrap his mount around his rifle?”
    “Cross the line? Which line? Those complaining about Griffin saw no line for Ted Nugent.”

    Man, Ted Nugent is like Madonna, the Rolling Stones, the President, the Pope, the Dalai Lama, and the whole ding-dang NFL rolled into one over in Democrat World! Why didn’t conservatives condemn Ted Nugent? Because we ignore him!

    I’d never heard of her, but Mrs. QuietPI, she who stays awake on New Year’s Eve, knew exactly who she was. Short version of her reponse: “Good riddance.” Mrs. could never understand why she was on a show, particularly billed as a comedian.

    Interesting the references to Ted Nugent. Even with all the things he’s said, they weren’t all that different than all the things that Democrats said about Bush 43.

    Air America was never on any station in the area where I live, but once on a car trip I stumbled across a station during Al Franken’s talk show. What I heard, for the half hour that I tolerated it, was a constant flow of snide remarks, mockery and insults, then Franken and his guests would laugh uproariously. Intelligent content, or anything even remotely funny – not one whit.

    Democrats / liberals / socialists have no one to blame for the present, often disgusting level of political commentary but themselves. And this present episode isn’t all that much different from what they’ve been doing for years.

    The lead story on the Yahoo web page right now shows a photo of Kathy Griffin, head bowed, wiping tears away with a tissue, with some kind and sympathetic people ministering to her. The headline is “Kathy Griffin Getting Death Threats Over Trump Joke.”

    Yahoo is trying to drum up your sympathy. Because of the “joke”.

    I thought: Oh poor Kaffy Gwiffin, getting def fwets because she fot it’s funny to hack the Pwesident’s head off. Poor widdle sing.

    No, thats not right. She made a horrible mistake – and we dont need to be sympathetic to her plight – but we should take death threats seriously.

    I’ve invented the term “Zombie Celebrity” to describe her – people who’s careers have long died – but they still shuffle along, moaning about it.

    Thanks for your comment, I guess what I said might sound like I’m gleeful that she is getting them. I’m not at all in favor of death threats. I’m also not in favor of garnering sympathy for someone whose despicable behavior – including publicizing a death wish for someone else — put her at risk for them in the first place.

    Sorry, in fairness I never thought you where ghoulishly enthusiastic about death threats to her. I really hate about how casual we’ve become with violence and the threats of violence.

    This anti-Trump hysteria has gone on too long, and gone way too far. People who have leveled public threats against the president need to be charged, not just with uttering threats, but with sedition. If even a modest fraction of this hate had been thrown at any democrat president the media would by in hysterics over it.

    It just occurred to me – her career isn’t over by any means, but it’ll take a new direction. No doubt she’ll be top tier on the college circuit. I bet she gets six figures per performance.

    I wonder how violent the protests against her will get….

    Oh.

    Absolutely true. The problem is that people on the left have claimed too often to have received death threats at the most convenient times, only to have no evidence, or to be revealed as the source of their own threats. A person in Griffin’s position should have no problem producing solid evidence of such threats. Remember the boy who cried wolf? Or Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel.

    My professional skepticism demands that I constantly ask, “is this true?” Eventually, though, one learns.

    Fair point. When the police investigate and find that this is the case, the faker should be charged with making a false police report and wasting the time of police. That would really cut down on the number of false claims.
