Kathy Griffin: Suck It, Donohue!

You probably remember the flap last September when Kathy Griffin won an Emmy for her cable-TV reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. The award was presented at the Creative Arts Emmy awards. The program was taped and scheduled for broadcast the following week on the E! cable network. She pissed off a lot of fundies with her acceptance speech:

Now, a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didn’t help me a bit. If it was up to him, Cesar Milan would be up here with that damn dog. So all I can say is suck it, Jesus, this award is my god now!

This caused enough of a stink that E! was forced to cut her acceptance speech out of the broadcast.

Last night, I came upon a rerun on Bravo of a standup comedy show that Griffin taped not long after this incident. She discusses the event and its aftermath. I thought it was quite funny. I managed to find the program on YouTube. The bit is split over these two parts.
