Kathy Griffin to play Sarah Palin on 'Glee': 'She's a 50-year-old adult bully'

Kathy Griffin has been sparring with the Alaskan family for what feels like forever, and now she's set to play a Palin inspired Tea Party candidate on "Glee." Talk about perfect casting.

In an appearance on Fox News, Palin takes a few jabs at the comedianne in the spirit of a true momma bear.

"Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me," Palin says behind a big smile. "She's a 50-year-old adult bully."

Continuing, "She is kind of a has-been comedianne and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children."

So what was Griffin's worst Palin family offense?

"She had stated on CNN that her news years resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter," Palin says of daughter Willow. "That takes it a little too far. Kathy, pick on me! Come up to Alaska and pick on me but leave my kids alone."

When it comes to Palin impressions, we're pretty sure Tina Fey will still reign supreme, but you better believe we'll be watching "Glee" to see how much Fox let's Griffin get away with.
