Bristol Palin slams Kathy Griffin, plans to run for office, writes a book

bristol-palin-gi.jpgThe Palin family has long been fodder for Kathy Griffin's jokes, but when Griffin poked fun at Bristol Palin for gaining weight during "Dancing With the Stars" -- calling her "the white Precious" -- Bristol fired back.

"It didn't [hurt my feelings] because it was coming from Kathy Griffin of all people, and I think it just shows her immaturity. I don't think that stuff's funny at all. Just very strange," Bristol tells E!. "And it's weird, also, that she would pick on my weight. She's had botched liposuction procedures and stuff like that, so...It's just weird that she would pick on something like that for another woman."

Bristol has bigger things to worry about than being the subject of a Bravo comedy special. She's says she'll "probably" run for office in the future. "If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it," she says.

In the meantime, she hopes her mother runs for president. "I think she would be a wonderful president, and I still think that she should run,." she says. "She's just so common-sense conservative....just, 'Here's what we've gotta do and this is how we're gonna do it,' and she brings a whole 'nother aspect to politics because she's a mom, because she runs a household, and I just think she's really smart."

If you're just dying for a closer look at Bristol's life, you might just get it. Word is that HarperCollins is planning to release the as-yet untitled Bristol Palin memoir on June 21. Seriously.
