The episode was filmed not longer after Prop. 8 passed in California, and Griffin introduced it like this:
The best part of the scene is Griffin’s post-production narration. Over shots of Etheridge and Tammy baking cookies with their kids, Griffin says:
Next, Kathy was off to a class to learn how to canvas the community before the Prop. 8 rally.
She says she’s never actually been canvasing before because: a) She’s not a Jehovah’s Witness, and b) She’s too famous. Not surprisingly, they send Griffin out with an actual lesbian with some experience going door to door:
Finally, Griffin gives a pretty rousing speech at a Prop. 8 march.
Say what you like about Kathy Griffin, but in her post-march interview when she said, “We know we’re not done” I really believed the “we” part.
Also last night, Jane Lynch — who I am beginning to believe is more ubiquitous than Ryan Seacrest — apparently made a guest appearance to bid on some lesbian cookies. My DVR mutilated it, so I didn’t get to see that bit, but you know our motto here at AfterEllen.com: The more Jane Lynch, the better.
Did anyone else watch Kathy Griffin’s Prop. 8 episode last night? What do you think about her as a straight ally?
Thanks to RDG for the tip!
