CNN has officially lost its mind. OK. That may have happened a long time ago but this is just too ridiculous.

CNN is having Kathy Griffin back to co-host its New Year’s Eve special, according to Media Bistro. You know the Kathy Griffin that got booed by the military after calling Bristol Palin fat. You know, the Kathy Griffin, who thinks so highly of conservatives that she beefed up her own security after getting booed.

Newsbusters reminds us that this is the same Kathy Griffin who recently called Sen. Scott Brown’s daughters “prostitutes” and dropped the F-bomb during last year’s CNN New Years Eve coverage.

The same Kathy Griffin who “joked” that Sarah Palin performed a “sex act” on John McCain to get picked for the VP nomination. The same Kathy Griffin who called Michelle Bachmann a bigot.

And yeah, the same Kathy Griffin who said, “Suck it, Jesus. This award is my God now.”

Yeah, that one. I could go on but I don’t think I really need to.

If CNN is wondering why nobody’s watching, it’s not because half the country hates them. It’s because they hate half the country.
