Sarah Palin On Kathy Griffin: '50-Year Old Adult Bully'

Posted: Updated:

Looks like Kathy Griffin's taunts have finally awoken the Mama Grizzly.

Griffin, who has made sport of taunting the Palin clan, is set to play a Palin-type Tea Partier on an upcoming episode of "Glee," something Fox News host Jeanine Pirro brought up to Palin in an interview over the weekend. That's when the Mama Grizzly's claws came out.

"You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she's kind of this - she's a 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is," Palin said. "She's kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year's resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far.

"Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone."

Griffin has made clear her dislike of the Palin family over the past two years, attacking both the matriarch and her TV-starring children. She's called Bristol "the White Precious," vowed to take down Willow, has taken Levi Johnston to events and even ripped Palin in a performance in Anchorage, Alaska.

The family has fought back before; in February, Bristol brought up Griffin's near-fatal liposuction experience.
