Kathy Griffin takes aim at Sarah Palin

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Comedian Kathy Griffin has brought her "Life on the
D-List" show to Sarah Palin's home state, skewering the former Alaska
governor at a raucous show in Anchorage.

Griffin was escorted on stage on Friday by Playgirl model Levi Johnston, who
fathered a child with Palin's oldest daughter and is involved in a child
support battle with Bristol Palin.

Griffin said she spent a day ice fishing with Johnston in Wasilla, and was
surprised when 19-year-old Levi's friend brought along a camera - but only
to photograph the fish they caught.

Griffin helped Johnston's celebrity star to rise, taking the aspiring actor
to an awards show last year as her date. While in Wasilla, Griffin said she
also went to Palin's home. There she left a note, inviting Palin to Friday's

She asked the crowd to look around and see if anyone was doing a pageant

Griffin said John McCain picked Palin to be his running mate on the
Republican ticket after "talking to her for 10 minutes."

Of Palin's monologue this week on "The Tonight Show," Griffin only promised
the audience she would never try to be a mayor.

Griffin also claimed Palin is a "gift that keeps on giving."

Griffin welcomed news that Palin is trying to shop a reality show or
docudrama about Alaska. She called that a "gift from God."

Griffin is in Anchorage to coincide with Saturday's start of the Iditarod
Trail Sled Dog Race. She was to have attended several events leading up to
the race, including the musher's banquet and made many jokes about the
annual Trappers and Miners Ball.

and attending the Iditarod, then I'll tell one...

While attending the kickoff of the famous Iditarod, race officials advised
Griffin not to stand too close any of the sleds. Not that she had anything
to fear from the dogs, but they didn't want any confusion between her and
the race participants.
