Senator Scott Brown is no fan of Kathy Griffin; and for good reason. Thursday night on Bravo, Griffin, who used to be fairly entertaining, was featured in a segment with CNN’s John King and Dana Bash. She was shown a picture of the Senator and she identified him as “Scott Brown-who is Senator from Massachusetts and has two daughters who are prostitutes.” King and Bash laughed it up.
At what point does a comedian cease to be a comedian? How about when they are no longer funny? Bill Maher reached that point years ago and now D-list actress Kathy Griffin is well on her way. Or maybe she’s already arrived in the dust bin of former comedians turned actors who have delved into political discourse and tried to be funny but never are anymore. Man, that’s a mouth full.
As for Scott Brown, Kathy Griffin and Bravo should be ashamed of themselves. That’s what the Senator said in a statement released by his office. He said, “People can call me any name they want but families are off limits. I love my daughters Ayla and Arianna very much, and any parent would be proud to have them as children. Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.”
What about John King and Dana Bash? Shouldn’t they be ashamed as well? True, they couldn’t help the ridiculous garbage that came out of Kathy Griffin’s pie hole, but they’ve seen their colleague Anderson Cooper squirm enough on live TV with her to know that it might not end well.
Here’s a note to CNN. When you align yourself with irrelevant characters like Kathy Griffin, you condemn yourself to being irrelevant. Of course the relevance of CNN is debatable at this point. Kathy Griffin’s Scott Brown “joke” was nothing more than proof that she’s taken up residence in the dust bin. Maybe she’s just depressed because Levi Johnston is no longer available.
