Jennifer Granholm made the joke at a Washington dinner on Saturday."]WASHINGTON (CNN) - Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm said she won't apologize to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for her crack at last weekend's Gridiron Dinner that the former Republican vice presidential candidate "really set back the cause of hot governors."
At the exclusive Washington dinner on Saturday, which was packed with top elected officials, Granholm also used the quip to needle Pennsylvania's governor. "You know where I'm coming from, Ed Rendell," she said.
A Michigan reporter asked Granholm if she planned to apologize to Palin, according to a Tuesday report in the Detroit News.
"No," Granholm said. "It was all in good fun."
Despite positive reviews for her comedy routine, Granholm said the she was a bit out of her element in the role.
"I'm not a stand-up. It was a bit of a stretch for me," she said.
Granholm played the role of Palin in Joe Biden's vice presidential debate prep sessions last year.
