While Hitler has yet to weigh in on Wednesday's news that Levi Johnston's finally going to make an honest woman out of Bristol Palin, the announcement did not go without the requisite amount of Internet drama. Leave it to Levi's other bit of arm candy, Kathy Griffin, to show the world how to rock the public heartbreak. After bravely tweeting, "Oh y did I trust my heart 2 a 19 yr old ice-fisherman/babydaddy from Wasila? Like Britney I'm putting myself on a 5150 psych hold BUY MY BOOK," she took to YouTube to vent her agony. It's bad, people. Celine Dion-level bad. And the two of them looked so happy at the Teen Choice Awards!

But based on this clip, it looks like the world's greatest D-lister will learn to love again someday. If you're an eligible Hollywood heartbreaker with the potential to give a middle-aged comedian a great publicity coup, you might want to go ahead and get that temporary restraining order.
