Kathy Griffin is AMAZING
Years ago, in my limited exposure to her, I found Kathy Griffin to be a rather annoying actress. This made sense, though, as I had seen her in roles in which she was cast to be an annoying person. The role that comes readily to mind was her cameo in Seinfeld wherein she spent the entirety of her appearance annoying and frustrating Jerry to no end.
Lately, however, every time I am exposed to Griffin I think more and more of her. A few months ago, upon receiving an award for her TV show, she declared that while so many entertainers make it a point of thanking Jesus for their great success, no one had less to do with her success than Jesus and that the man on the cross can suck it. Since this episode of political incorrectness, Griffin has gone on to mock Tom Cruise and Scientology. This, of course, is another quick way to my cynical secularist rationalist activist heart. In the following video, she takes some nice jabs at the cult and its most prized member (including referring to both as crazy) while on Larry King Live. She also calls Larry on pandering to Cruise.
