Kathy Griffin on Emmy Censorship: "O'Reilly Called Me a Pinhead, That's a Badge of Honor" [VIDEO]

This post, written by Melissa McEwan, originally appeared on Shakesville

Kathy Griffin was on with Larry King last night and was, naturally, hilarious as all get out. Larry King also, credit due him, showed the complete uncensored version of Kathy's Emmy acceptance speech. Once you see it, and see how totally silly she's being with it, it's even more unimaginable that it was censored or that anyone could have missed its purpose (which Kathy confirms was indeed a comment on the whole "thank God if we win; blame the quarterback if we lose" thing). Anyway, her appearance is below in two three parts. The transcript is here, and thanks again to Petulant for the video.
