Kathy Griffin interviews Levi Johnston.

I'm presenting this here because I love great conversation.

Cougar is too good a word to use to describe this piece of, of, Kathy Griffin.

And is that a face lift?

Poor Kathy! Refund!!!!

elHombre said...

Well, the first 25 seconds were certainly tasteful and edifying.

For some reason, I didn't get any further. The inanity filter on my computer may have kicked in.

Kathy Griffen-not funny

ricpic said...

God she's a horror.

Chase said...

because I love great conversation.

And you mean this as an example of the opposite?

Also, verification word is quithess. Feel like I'm playing Balderdash

Alex said...

The horror, the horror.

I've always wondered why in the battle of petite redheaded sitcom stars that took place in the mid-90s that Kathy Griffin apparently became the more lasting personality, even as Vicki Lewis was clearly funnier and more interesting.

Maybe it's the fact that Kathy Griffin took her Seinfeld appearance as career advice. Still, it's really confusing to me how some people get more exposure than others--when talent clearly has little to do with it. Fame is a crapshoot.

evedboa? That's almost fitting.

Chase said...

Paddy,

it's the old adage "Cream Rises to the Top".

Republican said...

In a perfect world, Kathy Griffin would require word verification before every sentence.

I'm not sure where how far down below the "Spanish Inquisition Sketch" this interview ranks, but I'm sure it's pretty far down.

I heard that Kathy escorted Levi to the teen choice awards. I hope that the Cougar got a roll in the hay with the young man for her troubles.

Jesus wept. Not exactly up there with a conversation with Hitchens about Trotsky now, was it?

David said...

I'll stick up for her.

Kathy Griffin is funny. She was funnier when she was a real fake star than she is as a fake real fake star, but she is funny. Shamelessly derivative, corny, crass, but funny.

There are so many ways to make a living in America. Levi and Kathy are great examples of that.

I agree with David, Kathy Griffin can be hysterically funny. I wouldn't call this her best work but it's still interesting.

I can't figure out if it is pro or anti Palin; Levi looks like such an ass. Maybe "whore" would be a better description.

I also enjoy how she has no cleavage showing. You almost can't see her neck. It makes it seem all the more awkward.

traditionalguy said...

Kathy Griffin has chutzpa, but she is not a nice person.

I couldn't get past the first 5 minutes
I need a transcript

Joan said...

I couldn't bring myself to press the Play button.

Dale said...

Kathy Gri. . . . I just threw up a little in my mouth.

Methadras said...

WTF with the word verification? Seriously? Anyway, this is an awesome publicity stunt. It's like watching the origins of how Elizabeth Taylor started.

traditionalguy said...

It appears that Palin will have to fight her Alaska friends she once helped out as PR opportunists more than Bill Clinton ever had to fight his Arkansas bimbos he helped out of their clothes as PR opportunists.

Pogo said...

I'm not watching that unless I am paid a small fee, or I get some lunch with it.

At least chocolate.


WV: "retpaps" def. Gynecology advice, if the first one is abnormal.

NKVD said...

Red hair - natures warning sign.

WV - carpetmatchesdrapes

peter hoh said...

NK, Griffin did ask about his experience on the red carpet.

campy said...

Such a small number of comments for a SP-related post.

rhhardin said...

I don't know any of the characters, but it seems to me she's playing on him being a total if hunky lunkhead; mocking, if anything, the Palin daughter's development of taste - perhaps her upbringing isn't quite right.

And a little bit mocking lunkheads so far as necessary to that end.

JAL said...

Was this supposed to be funny?

When I comment on the WV, it rejects me.

My Dinner with Kathy Griffin.

Who do you want on the other side of the table, Andre or Wallace?

Freeman Hunt said...

So... Bristol dodged a bullet there...

Beth said...

Freeman, if only. She's in a relationship with this guy at least until their kid's through college. But yes, thank goodness the marriage plan was a facade.

Just a little trivia about the name Noah:

There are two people in the bible who were named Noah, the first is the one with the ark and the second is the daughter of Zelophehad:

“So Zelophehad's daughters did as the LORD commanded Moses. 11 Zelophehad's daughters—Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah and Noah —married their cousins on their father's side. 12 They married within the clans of the descendants of Manasseh son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in their father's clan and tribe.” – Numbers 36

It's the most common name for girls in Israel, however they spell it Noa not Noah. Also, in Hebrew, the pronunciation of Noah for guys and Noah for girls is different. Noah for guys is pronounced Noa-ch like the “ch” chutzpah. Since there's no "ch" in English, both Noahs were translated the same.

This is your bible lesson for today :)

Freeman Hunt : So... Bristol dodged a bullet there...

Only one of them. Remember, she's got a kid!

traditionalguy said...

I have a vision of Kathy Griffin standing up and challenging some Democrat Congress-person at a townhall on the Healthcare Destruction Bill(s),followed by her appearance on Hardball where she will not even let Chris Mathews get a word in edgewise.

EDH said...

What drags this interview down is the constant, unspoken undercurrent that Levi's entire raison d'ĂȘtre is simply that he fucked Sarah Palin's teenage daughter, impregnating her with a child that she carried to birth.

Beth said...

Jason, that's not necessarily a "bullet" at all. She's a young woman with resources; having a baby young isn't such a burden under her circumstances, and she may well see the baby as the good thing to come out of that relationship.

knox said...

I just thought of a fun game: if Levi Johnston was one side of Bloggingheads, who would be on the other side?

I'm going to say Hulk Hogan's wife.

BJM said...

Levi Johnson; Kato Kaelin of the times.

William said...

Levi Johnston is a good looking kid from a troubled family. In the ordinary course of events, he would use his good looks to spread a little more chaos in the world and then settle down to a lifetime of heavy drinking and mild regrets. The fickle finger of fate has instead chosen him for a higher calling. He appears now in the entourage of a woman almost famous for not being quite famous. He himself will soon outstrip Kathy in this sub genre of celebrityhood. He will achieve fame as the man every one wishes they could just forget.

The Crack Emcee said...

I couldn't do it. I tried, I honestly tried.

I like KG doing stand-up. She's great, but not here.

Really, Ann, were you being sarcastic about this being "great conversation"? I found it cringe inducing.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Beth : She's a young woman with resources; having a baby young isn't such a burden under her circumstances...

I'll agree with that and the baby will probably be pretty, but listen to its father speak.

Jeff said...

Hey, don't take the interview too seriously.

Griffin came out smelling like a rose compared to Joan Rivers and the 7-year-old girls dressed up like hookers.

I thought the interview with Levi Johnston was hilarious. She called him "Tiger."

Levi is only 19-years-old. He's just a shy kid from a small town in Alaska. He's good-looking but far from being a 10.

However his sister, Mercede, is a gorgeous girl. She is a 10. She should be the model, and she's extremely verbal--unlike Levi.

Levi may have some potential but he doesn't even look clean. He hadn't shaved for a couple days and his hair is never combed.

MadisonMan said...

I'll agree with that and the baby will probably be pretty, but listen to its father speak.

Would anyone among us be erudite and well-spoken at the age of 19?

I give Levi credit for putting himself in very awkward situation and not self-destructing. (Maybe I should add yet?)

vw: bibly, as in of the bible?

srfwotb said...

Isn't she married to Steve Wozniak (the other founder of Apple) now?

I observed some real blue state coveting going on when Levi first made his appearance on Bristol's arm. The only question was whether he would take advantage of it.
