Kathy Griffin vs. Bill Donahue

The background: Kathy Griffin told Jesus to "suck it" during her Emmy acceptance speech, and Bill Donohue, right-wing blowhard and professional victim, threw one of his trademarked hissy fits.

Bill Donohue is the President of the Catholic League, which represents, well, Bill Donohue. He is notorious for going off the deep end over anything that could possibly be considered insensitive to his Christian sensibilities. He led the charge to get the catholic church to nor give kerry communion, he led the lynch-mob that went after Amanda Marcotte when she was hired by the Edwards campaign, and he made it onto the daily show for claiming that hollywood loves anal sex and abortions.

Media Matters has more on that big gasbag.

So here is Kathy Griffin putting Donohue in his place.

Here's the second part (not about Donohue anymore), when she mocks the christian theater group that took out a $90,000 ad in USA Today calling for a boycott of Griffin. Long story short: If you're a small theater group, don't pick fights with clever comedians who have nationally televised shows, or they'll call you gay and you won't be able to respond.
