(Newser) – Comedian Kathy Griffin brought her Life on the D-List show to Sarah Palin's backyard yesterday, skewering the former Alaska governor at a raucous show in Anchorage. Griffin was escorted onstage by Playgirl model and Palin babydaddy Levi Johnston, who was in a "serious, committed relationship," er, publicity stunt, last year with Griffin.

Earlier in the day in Palin's hometown of Wasilla, Griffin said she went to her house and left a note inviting the Republican leader to the show. She then asked the crowd to look around and see if anyone was doing a pageant wave. Griffin welcomed news that Palin is trying to shop a reality show or docudrama about Alaska. She called that a "gift from God," all wrapped up with a ball on top.
