Kathy Griffin [View all]

has been one of the strongest and most outspoken supporters of gay rights over the years. She says it anywhere and to anyone.

She has also been one of the most consistent supporters of the wounded warriors. She visits military hospitals and entertains there regularly. They love her because she is up front and not condescending. She agonized over how to perform for them so that it would help at all when she first started. Griffin realized that she had to be herself to reach them at all. She is her obnoxious self and they love her for it. She doesn't treat them like oddities, children or fine china.

I don't always appreciate her humor. However, she has not done anything that remotely makes me want to leave her by the side of the road and dump on her and everything she does. She is not immune from criticism. Nobody is. However, her comedy pales in relation to her unwavering support. She will have to do a LOT worse than her shenanigans with AC on New Year's Eve.

Kathy Griffin gets in anybody's face about her beliefs and she takes on all comers. That is a rarity when many are cowed into corners for supporting certain groups or backing certain measures. She has been on the front lines for a long time, and she has been there when it was a much lonelier place than it is now.

Kathy Griffin has my support, and I'd want her in my foxhole any time. She would be there until the bitter end and not cut and run. We need more people like her.
