Did anyone else have the expression "calling you out" in their middle and high schools? It was a threat meant to strike fear into the heart of one's enemies and it meant "I'm calling you out at a certain time and a certain place in order to connect my fists with your face." If you were a certain type of person (ie, a weak geek, like myself), at that time, it was also the most terrifying group of words in the English language.
Well, in an interview on Saturday with Fox News, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin essentially "called out" comedian Kathy Griffin, calling her a "has-been" and stating "Kathy, pick on me! Come up to Alaska and pick on me!"
What's all the guff about? Well, according to Politico.com, Griffin, a long-time Palin critic, is set to appear on an upcoming episode of Glee as a judge who is a "recent Tea Party candidate and home schooler-a Sarah Palin type."
When asked about Griffin's 'Glee' appearance, Palin went off on the mini-tirade above, saying Griffin needed to back off her children because "she [Griffin] had stated on CNN that her New Year's resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter." (Griffin actually said this, which certainly isn't nice, but kind of seems like a joke: "I've already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously, but I think it's Willow's year to go down.")
For fans of Griffn and 'Glee,' the 'Palin' episode will premiere next week.
