Kathy Griffin was bragging on Conan about calling Michele Bachmann a “bigot to her face,” which happened a while back, I believe. After watching a portion of the video, I left this comment on the story in The Huffington Post:
KG is morally bankrupt. She has a great deal of talent, but apparently thinks the only way to use it is by being as raunchy as she can possibly get.
I riled folks with my comment. I shouldda known better! (To the best of my knowledge, the only time I’ve had “dislikes” on my blog is when I made a statement some months ago that KG and Joy Behar needed to shut up.) Here’s a sampling of the comments I got for my statement yesterday (all comments are exactly how they were posted by the commenters, misspellings and grammatical errors and all):
How does her being raunchy make her morally bankrupt? I don't get it.
Then you aren't trying. However, I didn’t mean she was one or the other, I meant she’s both.
you have to remember, cons say being "morally fit" means following a 2,000 year old book of fairy tales which tells them to dash thier children against rocks and such =)
By “cons” I imagine you mean “conservatives.” I wish you understood exactly what Jesus Christ did on the cross.
she is a comedian....not a Southern Baptist minister, who are really morally bankrupt!
I’m not Southern Baptist…but I suppose if they are preaching about immorality, some wouldn’t like that. After all, if there’s no truth in the Bible, then there’ll be no day of reckoning. (I firmly believe the Bible is the word of God, and is all true.)
If you want to see "morally bankrupt", check out the republican leadership!
Hopefully, come next year, we will have a brave Christian in the White House. It’s my fear that one day, no Christian American will want to deal with the all-encompassing personal attacks that come with being in office.
so being raunchy = being morally bankrupt?
Already addressed, see above. However, your equation may not be so very far from wrong.
There is no such thing as morals. What you are referring to is just a man-made list of rules used to control you; and it's working. Takes all kinds, I suppose ...
It scares me that even one person might believe this.
Ignorance is not a virtue.
I agree. And deception is rampant.
That's her brand. This is America. Deal.
Yes, I got it! Deal with people like KG, but not those like Michele Bachmann. See next comment.
Who are you to decide she is morally bankrupt? Did Michele appoint you god while she is busy campaigning?
I have to admit the comment I made was only my opinion. KG appears to have no morals. However, since I so boldly said on my last post “When I become perfect... until then, I’ll leave it to God” I should have reconsidered posting the comment.
She is a comedian to bad Bachmannn didn't know that...PS she, like anyone in America, does have the right to question bigotry towards gays or is that against the new right wing rules....???
Morality isn’t bigotry. My comment was that KG was morally bankrupt and raunchy, so I am not sure about the “new rules” to which you refer.
One last thought: Perhaps, even though I stand by what I said, and do not apologize for it, I didn’t have to say it.
