Victoria Jackson is back! Back to tell us all “Why Victoria Jackson Dropped Out Of Politics,” a thing we have all surely been wondering about for quite some time. Or not.

Jackson starts out this exclusive and oddly rambling essay for birther site World Net Daily by talking about how Julia Louis-Dreyfus loves universal healthcare, just like Hitler. Because sure, why not?

Julia Louis-Dreyfus just announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Of course, she used her announcement to make a political statement advocating universal health care. I guess she doesn’t know that the first thing Hitler did when he came to power was put the government in charge of health care – the power of life and death.

Julia also used the recent Emmys to allude to impeaching Trump.

Either that, or she knows that Germany’s national health system was actually established 50 years before Hitler came to power, by Otto Von Bismarck. Or she, very correctly, does not associate providing healthcare to all people with sending Jewish people off to gas chambers.

But what does that have to do with Victoria Jackson? Well, it is because Victoria Jackson also had breast cancer and also talked about politics, but she was a conservative.

Apparently, the only people allowed to be publicly political are progressives. 

I’ve been politically silent for the last two years. Not just because I’ve been battling breast cancer myself (double mastectomy, five months of chemo, 33 radiation treatments) diagnosed at the same age Julia was, 56, but because I am exhausted from the backlash and blacklisting I’ve experienced from speaking out politically! I immediately lost all my stand up gigs in 2010 when I supported the tea party. Two agents dropped me. A booker backed out. My income plummeted.

This, by the way, is her stand-up.

Oh look, she did a handstand again. Wow!

Well, another thing Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Victoria Jackson have in common is that they were both Saturday Night Live cast members. Except the really big difference is that Julia Louis-Dreyfus went on to have a stellar career after that. Can anyone name a single thing Victoria Jackson did in between doing handstands on the Weekend Update desk and going full wingnut? Except for that one episode of The X-Files with the guy who controlled the weather, I cannot.

But apparently no one will even let Victoria Jackson do cancer benefits, even, because she went around playing ukulele songs about how President Obama was a SEEKRIT MUSLIM for several years. And they won’t even give her a Netflix show! Weird!

More recently, I was asked not to speak at a local Cancer Survivor Event called “Survivor-ville,” even though I just wrote a book about surviving cancer! My book is called “Lavender Hair.” I was told that one of the donors “didn’t like my politics.” Netflix and CMT refused to watch a three-minute sizzle reel I made this summer pitching a new comedy show idea. They told my producer, “We wouldn’t touch Victoria Jackson with a 10-foot pole!”

Jackson predicts that her politics will also prevent her from being invited to appear on the Today Show’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month segments to promote her book.

I’ll be shocked if NBC responds to my publisher’s request to have me as a guest this month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, on the Hoda and Kathie Lee show, even though Hoda, a breast cancer survivor, is mentioned fondly in my book. And, I know Kathie Lee.

You see, it’s not just a rumor that conservatives in Hollywood are blacklisted. It’s true.

May I just point out here that conservative political pundit Megyn Kelly is currently a Today Show host? Sure, she’s dragging ratings down, but they’re paying her a hell of a lot to do so. So perhaps there are things at play here other than Jackson merely being a conservative.

Now, it is certainly likely that Jackson’s politics did not exactly endear her to people. After all, this was a thing that happened, and it was both repulsive and painfully unfunny:

As is this video, which she made 8 months ago (while she was staying out of politics?), and which so far has under 5,000 views on YouTube:

But I’m quite sure that Jackson’s lack of a steady career in showbiz had far less to do with her theory that “conservatives are blacklisted in Hollywood” than it did with the fact that she was not… very good.

Her theory, while it may comfort her at night, ignores the fact that there have been loads of conservatives who have been vastly successful in Hollywood. For instance, James Woods. His politics are awful, he is a monster on Twitter and a sexual harasser of teenage girls. But Ghosts of Mississippi is a hell of a movie. Once Upon A Time In America? Fantastic. He is a very good actor. I hate his guts, and probably wouldn’t go out of my way to watch any movie he is in now, but he is a good actor. Which is why he had a much more of a career than Victoria Jackson did, in spite of the fact that he is a garbage person. Jon Voight is also a right wing nut job, but he’s certainly doing quite well on Showtime’s Ray Donovan.

Jackson chooses to end her very confused essay with an odd plea for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, aka Hitler, to read her book.

Ironically, I casually mentioned Julia Louis Dreyfus in my book as someone who seemed to have a perfect life! This was before her recent cancer announcement! Maybe Julia will read my book. There are a few conservative political points in it. Maybe she’ll see things in a new light!

That seems about as likely to happen as a Victoria Jackson comeback.

    I think you lost all your stand up gigs in 2010 because you’re not funny and no-one wants to see you except the goobers who find Dennis Miller too intellectual.

  • Faux News should start the FCKN network. Fox Comedy Network so all the poor conservative comedians out there who can’t find work can go at it.

    • Three Finger Salute

      They already tried their own version of “Weekend Update,” called “Half Hour News Hour.” It failed miserably, and they almost got sued by the CBC because the title was too similar to their (actually funny) “This Hour Has 22 Minutes.”

      • alpacapunchbowl

        Was that the one that was also attempting to be a conservative answer to the Daily Show?

  • proudgrampa

    Who?

  • Vincent Ricola

    Many great people are saying Victoria Jackson is a secret double agent working for the Deep State to discredit Conservative ideas. Also too, that she is actually in Isis. I don’t know for sure, but people on the internet say these things all the time, so I’ve got to believe there’s something to it.

    • proudgrampa

      Then all she needs to do is come in from the cold…

  • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

    Well, I am sorry that she got cancer. The rest sounds like more “PAY ATTENTION TO ME, DAMMIT!” that she’s been doing since she dropped off the D-List radar around 2005.

    • proudgrampa

      I agree. No one should get cancer. But that doesn’t give one an excuse to be a dick.

  • chazmanr

    They told my producer, “We wouldn’t touch Victoria Jackson with a 10-foot pole!”

    Blacklisting from speaking out politically OR the real reason? Blacklisting after you opened your mouth and people actually realized paste is smarter than you are? I’ve NEVER liked this woman, and never understood how she got on SNL. And that was back when SNL was actually pretty funny.

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      Not so much blacklisted as politely ignored in the same way that we ignore the mentally ill guy who stands on the corner in downtown Seattle and shouts about how the Pope and Obama are Satan.

    In today’s modern age, if you’ve got the talent to create wonderful content, you don’t have to wait for some network to give you a shot.

        Meaning you didn’t know she was conservative? I’m still cool with her. She’s one of the sane ones who just sees the world differently than I do.

        • AnnieGetYerFun

          Yeah, I don’t think she is. She may occasionally try to include conservative ideas in her comedy, but she’s pretty liberal.

    • Shanzgood

      Nooooo!

  • An Outhouse for the résistance

    I’ve been reading ‘The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich’ and I don’t think universal health care was the first thing Hitler did once he gained power. In fact I haven’t gotten to the universal health care part at all yet.

    • The Wanderer

      If I recall, universal health care was instituted in the German Empire under Bismarck (ironically, to steal the liberals’ thunder).

      • Rebel Scum with permit

        The irony is that if Republicans really wanted their permanent majority, they could attain something close to it by instituting single payer healthcare. But the prune faces billionaires who run their show wouldn’t hear of it.

  • JMP

    I like how the most recent standup from Jackson you could find was from 1998. Victoria, you’re not making money because you’re a has been, it has nothing to do with the political screeching you kept doing to try and get people to pay attention to you and pretend to be relevant.

  • HogeyeGrex

    Y’know, maybe, if her politics are so far out of the mainstream that they’re killing her career, despite all the Woodses and Voights out there, the takeaway for her might be a bit of reassessment rather than whingeing about what a victim she is.

    Nahhhh.

    • Beanz&Berryz

      She’s entitled to her opinion and to making $$ by morphing her opinion into humor. Entitled. Or everyone is out to get her.

      • HogeyeGrex

        She’s certainly entitled to try. But if your shit is so far gone nobody wants to hear it, it might not be some grand conspiracy against you. It might just be people telling you to shut the fuck up and go away.

    86-92(ish) had arguably the most important cast in SNL history. In 86, the show was on the chopping block twice in the past 2 years, and had only been given a 13 episode renewal. Was a little before my time, but arguably Dana carvey/Jan Hooks/Phil Hartman cast should go down as one of the best and most underrated casts in that shows history.

    With one exception: the answer to the trivia question “who was less talented than Rob Schneider”

    Lady, the reason no one cared about your breast cancer is only partially due to your political views. It’s mostly because you’re a batshit unpleasant lunatic who hasn’t ……done much of anything in 26 years

    • Three Finger Salute

      Jan Hooks and Phil Hartman, PBUT. Kevin Nealon, Mike Meyers, Dana Carvey, Nora Dunn, then Chris Farley, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and David Spade towards the early-to-mid ’90s. Arguably the best cast over a ten-year period since the original crew + frequent “special guest” Steve Martin.

      SNL was on the chopping block prior to the second wave of Not Ready for Primetime Players because Lorne got fired before the atrocious 1980 season that had zero redemption other than Murphy and Piscopo — and when he came back in ’85, tried to turn it into “MTV Comedy Hour” by literally poaching actors from John Hughes films. Right, like the one thing teenagers can’t wait to do on a Saturday night is stay in and watch Anthony Michael Hall play a geek again, or Robert Downey Jr and Joan Cusack play Ronnie and Nancy or something to that effect.

      But Jackson was never funny, Schneider revealed himself to be an intolerant prick in the wake of the election, and Dennis Miller went completely off the rails after 9/11 and the national embarrassment that was his hosting gig on Monday Night Football. His sole achievement during that time was making Al Michaels tolerable.

    Victoria Jackson, the blond bimbo version of Dennis the Menace Miller. For some reason, a handful of SNL alumni went on to the wingnut welfare circuit. Not because they got blacklisted for being cons but because they simply weren’t funny. In Jackson’s case, the modifier “anymore” doesn’t even apply.

  • The Wanderer

    I’m almost sorry for asking (seriously, insulting Victoria Jackson must be like kicking a puppy, at least on some level), but did she take a shovel to her face? Or is her facial puffiness the product of too much surgery, or simply a case of Terminal Unfunny?

    • Shanzgood

      Possibly chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer.

    Your politics are shit and make life worse for everyone, Jackson, you dumb twat. Universal health care is MORE LIBERATING! It means you get care, even if you get laid off, and you don’t have as many limitations on employment opportunities, you don’t fucking go bankrupt trying to deal with chronic health problems. IT CREATES MORE LIBERTY, NOT LESS!

    OT, but WTF:
    White House chief of staff John Kelly on Thursday told reporters they are a big frustration for President Trump.
    The retired general made a rare appearance before reporters assembled in the James S. Brady Briefing Room for the White House’s press briefing, telling the press corps that they are one of the president’s top frustrations.
    “When I watch TV in the morning, it is astounding to me how much is misreported,” he said.

    “I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, whatever you call them,” he said. “But I just would offer to you the advice — maybe develop some better sources.” http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/355176-john-kelly-media-is-one-of-trumps-biggest-frustrations

      Maybe the President would hold weekly press conferences…?

      • Three Finger Salute

        Can you imagine if Trump had to go to President’s Questions like they have Prime Minister’s Questions in Westminster countries? This is not a substitute for the media scrums but in addition to. He’d have to stand there and look like a complete ass getting grilled by the Official Opposition (in this case, the Democrats) every single day of the week.

        Actually, I think this is a good idea. Except that I don’t want to see his ugly mug any more than I already have to.

        • The Wanderer

          Q: “Would the Prime Minister agree that the current reading of the House bill on health care is revealing deep discrepancies in the amount of money being laid out for cancer treatments?”
          A: “Bigly.”

        • Beanz&Berryz

          I wanted that during W’s term… I think it’s just weekly, maybe… but… OMFG… could you imagine the Deer in the Headlights moments… And the shitstorm of word salad… Ya… It would be nice…

          • Three Finger Salute

            It’s weekly in Britain. Dunno about Australia, I think maybe they’re the same. But Trudeau has to show up and get heckled by the fascist cons and the spoiler Dippers EVERY. FUCKING. DAY. Usually he has one of his cabinet ministers do it during times when he actually has to leave Ottawa on official business and not be chained to papa’s desk, like the cons were so used to with Howard Hughes Harper.

            The Liberals were set to introduce a bill that would reconcile it with Britain and only have the PMQs on Fridays, but they had to withdraw it because the many-many sides got ready to riot, and accused the Grits of “coddling the rock-star” so that “he doesn’t have to be in a room that doesn’t include his adoring, screaming fans.”

            A “pick your battles” situation whereby they just didn’t want to have a bigly yuge fight over scheduling changes when there were obviously biglier and yuger things to debate. Like how much time and resources the cons can waste calling for an investigation into Sophie’s nannies or National Lampoon’s Aga Khan Christmas Vacation.

    the first thing Hitler did when he came to power was put the government in charge of health care

    Also the first thing he did was confiscate all the guns.
    Another first thing he did was cancel the elections.
    Many people don’t know the first thing Hitler did was cancel trade and other international agreements.
    He enacted a massive tax cut, first thing!
    Right off the bat, he abrogated Germany’s debt, to “prime the pump”, a phrase in invented.

    Hitler sure did a lot of “first thing he did when he got into power” things.

    He must have been like an octopus or something.

    Just the other day the first thing he did was take away everyone’s guns.

    Now the first thing he did was give everyone access to healthcare.

    Not long ago the first thing he did was have all his opponents killed.

    • Baconzgood

      Actually the first thing he did was have a piece chocolate cheese cake.

      • TJ Barke

        Beautiful cake, best you’ve ever seen, believe me.

          BS, he ate Black Forrest Cake from the Fatherland

        • h4rr4r

          He basically just kept the restrictions in place for the folks he did not like. For the common german he made guns easier to get. For SS members and party members with any real pull they were allowed to buy basically any guns they wanted.

          There were later further restrictions on some groups, but they were being rounded up by that point.

    A tangent: I thought it was interesting that Angelina Jolie and Gwyenth Paltrow were among the accusers of Harvey Weinstein. Was he not aware of their lineage, or did he feel that much impunity?

      Very likely the latter.

    • Shanzgood

      Hitler invented the autobahn or the vw too. Can’t remember which. So now I have to not take the highway?

      • vivian

        The VW. It was a Ponzi scheme. You had to save up to buy stamps to put in a little book, and when the book was full you could get a car, but the price of stamps kept going up and no one was able to fill a book.

        • Riley Whodat Venable

          About 100k people were defrauded if I remember. IIRC a few people did fill their books by 1940, but Professor Porche was busy making Kampfwagens by then.

      I dunno, part of the romance and mystique of Italy after WWI was the delicious mystery of whether you would make your connection. And fuckin’ Mussolini went and RUINED it, that he was also a fascist dickbag is merely coincidental.

    • Riley Whodat Venable

      I think Teddy R. also proposed a National Health program. As did Truman.

  • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

    More recently, I was asked not to speak at a local Cancer Survivor Event called “Survivor-ville,” even though I just wrote a book about surviving cancer!

    Wait, were you “asked not to speak” or “not asked to speak”? One implies that the organizers of the event merely didn’t extend the invite, possibly (or even probably) because you’re a RWNJ.

    The other implies that you made a point of saying “I’m going to speak there!” and the organizers said, “No, you’re not. We’re all full up.”….possibly because you’re a RWNJ. You don’t get to invite yourself to shit just because you wrote a book.

    Oh, and I’m glad cancer didn’t beat you, VJ. Fuck cancer, as always.

        It was Winston Churchill, who, in his later years SHOULD have had his head examined. Actually, he said that if you weren’t a Liberal at 50, you have no heart and if you aren’t a Con at 50, you have no brain.

    Elaine: No, I mentioned the bisss-que.

  • bubbuhh

    Paul Krugman has been writing a series of columns, trying to explain the complex issues surrounding tax reform and industrial policy which the simpleminded twit in the WH thinks can be magically changed by volleys of tantrums, each 140 characters or less.

    Krugman’s latest column, entitled Puerto Rico, Trump and Taxes, also exposes some of the reasons for Puerto Rico’s financial problems. Krugman is always worth reading if one really wants to learn something about economics and politics. Here’s his ;atest coluimn. You can find the last half dozen or so on his page at the NYT.

    Brad Setser has a really interesting post on Puerto Rico’s balance of payments – unlike states, the territory keeps track of exports and imports both to the U.S. mainland and the rest of the world. As it happens, his analysis bears pretty much directly on Howard Gleckman’s critique of Kevin Hassett’s disgraceful performance at the Tax Policy Center.

    As Setser notes, Puerto Rico used to be a major tax haven for manufacturing corporations.Much of this tax advantage has now ended, but its legacy is still visible in trade statistics. Specifically, PR runs, on paper, a huge trade surplus in pharmaceuticals – $30 billion a year, almost half the island’s GNP. Yes, “N” not “D” – very important in this case, as in Ireland.

    But the pharma surplus is basically a phantom, driven by transfer pricing: pharma subsidiaries in Ireland charge themselves low prices on inputs they buy from their overseas subsidiaries, package them, then charge themselves high prices on the medicine they sell to, yes, their overseas subsidiaries. The result is that measured profits pop up in Puerto Rico – profits that are then paid out in investment income to non-PR residents. So this trade surplus does nothing for PR jobs or income.

    What does this have to do with Hassett? Well, he told TPC – while insulting the institution and impugning its integrity – that transfer pricing driven by high nominal US corporate taxes is responsible for half the U.S. trade deficit, and that cutting these taxes would therefore be a big job creator. Never mind whether his estimate is right: even if it were, as Gleckman says, changing the transfer pricing would affect the accounting, but nothing real. It would be exactly like Puerto Rico’s pharma surplus: a phantom improvement, statistically impressive to the uninformed but signifying nothing.

    “You see, it’s not just a rumor that conservatives in Hollywood are blacklisted. It’s true”
    First of all your not a conservative, your a dimwitted teabagger, more commonly referred to as a lunatic. I don’t doubt that your not wanted on mainstream entertainment shows, your not entertaining, in fact your an objectionable slob.

    • Raan

    • bupkus231

      “First of all your not a conservative, your a dimwitted teabagger, more commonly referred to as a lunatic.”

      As are they all, sad to say. All the “real” conservatives have died out, or been forced out by the jingoistic, racist idjits who call themselves “conservatives” today. None of them have an consistent ideology even remotely related to conservatism, except by ( re-defined ) words….

  • Wookie Monster

    A bitter, no-talent has-been vents her jealous rage at someone more successful.

    Hey Vicki, maybe the reason Julia has been more successful than you is because she learned how to play a range of characters instead becoming a woman in her fifties who still dresses and sounds like Minnie Mouse.

    • bupkus231

      Speaking of Minnie’s – Victoria’s prolly thinking she can ride that one schtick for her entire “career”, like Minnie Pearl did with the price sticker hanging off her hat.

      Of course, in Miss Vicki’s case, it would be a teabag hanging off her hat….

      • guest1331now

        and Minnie was talented and funny and could do acting stuff and music stuff and was not a raving face-sharter …

    Gosh, Victoria, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is more talented, more attractive and way less obnoxious than you. So of course it’s politics that are holding you back.

    It’s a crappy and shallow observation, but Batshitty Wingstand has not aged well. Unlike JLD, who is still quite stunning. I think it’s the internal bile fueled by hatred that’s accelerated her down slide. In image-obsessed Hollywood, this is perhaps another reason Vicky has been forgotten.

    • bubbuhh

      Reading between Robyn’s lines, I don’t think Jackson has been forgotten, People remember her all too well and go to great lengths to avoid her.

      She wasn’t bad on SNL to be honest. I guess it took electing a black guy to bring out her true self.

  • undercover epicurean

    Her theory, while it may comfort her at night, ignores the fact that there have been loads of conservatives who have been vastly successful in Hollywood. For instance, James Woods. His politics are awful, he is a monster on Twitter and a sexual harasser of teenage girls. But Ghosts of Mississippi is a hell of a movie. Once Upon A Time In America? Fantastic. He is a very good actor. I hate his guts, and probably wouldn’t go out of my way to watch any movie he is in now, but he is a good actor. Which is why he had a much more of a career than Victoria Jackson did, in spite of the fact that he is a garbage person. Jon Voight is also a right wing nut job, but he’s certainly doing quite well on Showtime’s Ray Donovan.

    Alternative theory: maybe her problem is that she is not a man?

      I think with a clear conscience you can make an exception in her case. And it’s quite a case! She isn’t somebody you mocked in a Walmart. She put herself out there – and, at least since the Cherry Sisters, anybody who does that better be ready for the rough as well as the smooth.

    “I guess she doesn’t know that the first thing Hitler did when he came to power was put the government in charge of health care…”

    History proves that’s a lie. The first thing he did was call his Mom and say “Guess what?”

    Fun fact to know and to share: “The Germans Did It So It’s Bad” meme was first used prior to WW I when America was about to adopt a national health care program. But if it was good enough for the Kaiser it wasn’t good enough for us! You betcha!

On a good day, I was funnier than Rob Schneider. Liberals have taken that away from me, just as they have taken away America. They have handed both to the Islamists, who now perform handstands while reciting the Qu’ran as they prepare to Sharia us all. But I’m not laughing.

  • Wild Cat

    After dealing with her, can one actually blame Paul Ruebens for wanking in gay movie houses?

  • Michael Coughlin

    In addition to her SNL career during the ’80s she also starred in 2 very unfunny movies – Casual Sex? and Feds. She was obviously either told to keep her politics to herself during that time – or as I suspect – she wasn’t conservative then. Most conservatives wouldn’t consider being in a film called Casual Sex?. She also had a very small part in Baby Boom where she played a babysitter who gets fired by Diane Keaton because she is caught having sex with her boyfriend while she is supposed to be watching the baby. Not a part you would think a conservative would consider taking. Of course one of her fellow conservative actors has done some pretty non-conservative parts. James Woods in Pretty Persuasion. His character is beyond depraved. Its a strange, strange movie but his character is just sick and insane. Not sure it was a challenge for him as an actor. I liked the movie though. But back to Ms. Jackson – As far as I know she was closeted about her politics in the ’90s too. I may be wrong. I hadn’t heard her name since the ’80s until the last few years when she went full-on loopy. My point is her career had been dead LONG BEFORE the general public had any knowledge of her politics. It is definitely because she just wasn’t that good to start with.

    • Wild Cat

      It was originally “Casual Sex.” AIDS hysteria forced the question mark to be added to the title.

      Al Franken says she was a religious freak on SNL and often tried to convert him.

      • Michael Coughlin

        I love Stuart Smalley and Al. :)

        • Wild Cat

          I prefer him as a politician and social commentator. He has some good insights on her psychosis, You may want to google a Village Voice interview with her from the late 1990s, I believe. She’s insane. But then, so is a vast swath of the US.

          • Michael Coughlin

            I will definitely look that up. I did like her on SNL and truth be told I didn’t hate Casual Sex? although its easy to see why it bombed and why critics hated it. But her whole deal was sort of one-note and that can only take you so far.

    • Yes. I was trying to think of the name of this movie. Miss Tea Party’s bare naked ass is visible in it. (And not half-bad at the time.)

    • Meccalopolis

      Woods had the lead in Stone”s Salvador ferchrisakes

      • Clark_Nova

        I always thought that was a really odd choice and I would have loved to have heard their arguments. Never hired him again, did he?

    • Nasty Girl Brianna

      But she really cranked up the crazy to 11 when Obama was elected. Before that she was just nuts. But after? Whoo boy!

    • kaydenpat

      It’s so convenient for her to blame her conservatism for her failed acting career while ignoring the successful career for Conservatives such as Gary Sinise.

      • Clark_Nova

        It is not right that Sinise has so much talent and so little intelligence.

    I thought the first thing Hitler did was take everybody’s guns.

        And had all kinds of room left in his pocket.

    • Jack Takes A Knee

      I thought the first thing Hitler did was grow a mustache.

      • Clark_Nova

        Always had one. He just started trimming it differently.

          Even when he was just a wee little genocidal baby? I don’t believe you.

  • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

    Man! Victoria Jackson is a wingnut! I knew there was a reason she wasn’t funny.

    Hitler also built the autobahn—so I guess we can’t have roads anymore, right Victoria?

    • Nasty Girl Brianna

      Also means we can’t drive Volkswagens.

      And didn’t Hitler love German Shepherds. Guess we should get rid of them then.

  • Mr. Blobfish

    Why is that guitar disrespecting our flag and our veterans and our anthem and our country and our flag?

    I understand her confusion. With Trump winning the election, you’d think crazy would be a hot ticket.

    • kaydenpat

      It is among Republicans.

    Love her band though. Is that Couch K on keys? And the Red, White and Blue guitar? Gotta get one of those man. Harmonica man dressed for the part too!

    Um, Jackson has recently been in a few christian films and has role as a recurring character on a TV series.

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0414130/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

    You can go on youtube and find many many clips of her birther racist rants, it’s not pretty. And, now she wants to dismis all of that fuckery by blaming it on being barred for her “conservative” views.

    So I guess it’s “conservative” to be a racist dirtbag.

    • Pretty much!

    • Nasty Girl Brianna

      And it’s “conservative” to whine incessantly about how you’re the real victim here. I mean seriously, have you ever heard a bigger bunch of goddamned whiners?

      • Cuberly Deux

        In her cameo appearance in one of the “christian” films she’s in she makes a rather groan worthy anti-Obama joke.

        She’s got a one trick-pony act. Whining….

        • Nasty Girl Brianna

          Wait, you don’t think she’s… racist?

          Naaah.

          • Cuberly Deux

    When they finish killing the bad, liberal parts of America, like the “Bill of Rights” and the “constitution” and the “safety net” and “environmental regulations” and “sanity” and “the 20th century,” Republicans are going to make people hire Ted Nugent and James Woods and Victoria Jackson and Dennis Miller and Kirk Cameron for all the movies and concerts and fundraisers and standup gigs and big Broadway plays and stuff.

    And why wouldn’t they? Ted Nugent and James Woods and Victoria Jackson and Dennis Miller and Kirk Cameron are well known to be the best and most talented ones, and the only reason they don’t have all the jobs already is just because they’re conservatives.

    Everybody knows that the only people you’re allowed to discriminate against are conservatives. Everybody knows there’s a conspiracy to keep them out of the limelight because of Liberal Bias. There’s no other plausible reason why they aren’t reelin’ in the gigs and the big paychecks.

    Having a wedding or bar mitvah any time after the 2018 mid-terms have been stolen? just so’s you know who the mandatory entertainment is going to be once the New Republican Order is completed and fairness is restored, it’s Kid Rock.

    • SeeTrain65

      Jean Stapleton played a sort of dizzy character on All In The Family, too. But Jean Stapleton’s character was just an act.

      Victoria Jackson did what she did best … and when someone figures that out, please let us all know what that was.

      • blueeyedcuban

        Is it possible Victoria is still playing a character, much like our Dear Leader? They couldn’t possibly be that moronic, could they?

  • Vicky dear, people are not black listing you because of your tea partying. If you look, you actually stopped getting gigs right around the time SNL stopped hiring you because, get this, the dizzy blond bimbo is not really needed very much these days and that is legit all you ever played.
    Even in UHF, which I like, and like you in, you played a whining dizzy blond bimbo.
    So….maybe personal responsibility time, darling?

    • Carpe Vagenda

      I guess not, because (after she starred in Casual Sex with Andrew Dice Clay, the moral minx) she was real explicit that she was dropping out of show business because she despised the phonies and only wanted to be her husband’s wife.

  • Keith Taylor

    Uh huh. And Hitler was also completely for gun control when he wasn’t, so gun control is ipso facto a monstrous evil. And any time you say so-and-so is just like Hitler you’ve already lost the argument because it’s a reasonable sign that you have nothing.
    Actually I can imagine one person, easily imagine one person screaming, if it looked as though the Dems would win the next presidential election, “Let a Democrat president be voted into nothing but ashes!” If he had that good a vocabulary.

    • Carpe Vagenda

      Well, he sort of was? He wanted to take guns away from jews and homosexuals and trade unionists. So, unless there’s history I don’t know and the grand majority of the cops in Nazi Germany were jews and homosexuals and trade unionists, I don’t see it as an equivalence.

    • Skellygirl

      It would have been helpful had Hitler been more diligent about gun control because the Freikorps, who were militias armed with caches of leftover WWI weapons, formed the core of the SA that marched on Berlin.

      that hitler fellow sure did make a nice car though, I’ve had many VWs over the years. so now I’m going to go kill elon musk because tesla makes great cars too so it’s only a matter of time before he starts gassing the jews and invading poland

  • Electriq

    They told my producer, “We wouldn’t touch Victoria Jackson with a 10-foot pole!”

    Only surprised her version of the story doesn’t involve a pie in the face. Because I’m pretty sure there’s a vaudeville show running 24/7 in that empty theater inside her skull.

  • Skellygirl

    So I’m sure that 1,875,951 non-commenters before me have brought this up, but isn’t it funny that when a liberal requests, like, the right not to go bankrupt from cancer or electricity for Puerto Rico it’s entitlement and the decline of modern civilization but when a conservative demands the right to perform at a cancer benefit it’s DEEEEESCRIMINATION?!?

    • HazooToo

      Oh, I can’t stop laughing. Mostly because I never fucking started.

  • 1PeterG1

    I think Victoria should be thankful that she got away with playing a vacuous idiot as long as she did. Eventually though her secret was bound to come out, that she was actually a vacuous idiot. That there is a paucity of roles for humorless mean-spirited vacuous idiots is unsurprising. But hold on tight Victoria, if they ever make a bio pic of the Life of Palin, you’ll have a shot.

    Interesting piece. I never heard of this Jackson woman before your article. Has she been in hiding? Does she go about in camouflage? Is she the source of that intermittent whining I hear or is that Trump? I do like Julia Louis-Dreyfus though. She’s always funny. Maybe this Jackson lady should watch a lot of Julia’s work and try to learn from her.

    • bubbuhh

      She is so not in hiding. She desperately seekin attention. She want Trump to grab her pussy in teh most MAGA way. But, no one want to grab her anythin or say her name in case she think they callin her.

      Most likely she called them up and they said “Victoria who? No, we aren’t interested.”

  • Shelli Kae

    In her catchy little tune, while saying names of people crazy as a loon like her did she mention the name Richard Spencer? Me thinks she did. However, my ears are much older than when I would sit in my car listening to Paradise City by Guns n Roses on repeat trying to write down lyrics so we could destroy the song playing in a garage band!
    Cant wait for her next hit tune, “We have a pussy grabber in the White House!

    Maybe if Victoria Jackson stopped being like breast cancer — unfunny, she’d get work. Fucking hack cunt. #GOPGenocide

  • Religionisevil

    Victoria Jackson is living in my home state of Tennessee, up the street from a krispy Kreme. She really has no talent except making herself irrelevant. Her loss of work is on her and her alone.

    • Gascoigne

      And she looks as though she buys a dozen donuts from that Krispy Kreme joint every day…

      • Humble (but pissed) Centrist

        Fat shaming? Really?? How could you possibly justify the savage strategies of a schoolyard bully? What’s next? Ya gonna give her a wedgie and demand her lunch money?

        Just stop. Don’t be mean.

    • Clark_Nova

      Didn’t she marry a cop?

      • Jukesgrrl

        She married a Florida cop. Even worse.

    That tambourine earring though…

    Our society is doomed based on the simple fact that this is considered something worth discussing.

  • Shartiblartfat

    Who? I thought when her character “Heat of the Night” was killed off in 1994, we had seen the last of her. No such luck, apparently. She did, as I recall, nail the character of “blonde bimbo” excellently.

    And here I thought America had an endless appetite for racist, lunatic, conspiratorial ukulele ditties. I guess not.
    So if we now have to call Julia “Hitler-Dreyfus”…can we start calling this overfed cat lady Victoria von Bismark?

  • Teto85

    Who?

  • My2Cents

    the fact that you suck as a comedian is the only thing holding you back!

  • msgypsy

    Didn’t she used to pal around with Weird Al? That’s the only thing I can remember her for.

    • She was in UHF, where she played to type = a ditsy air-head. The movie was funny in spite of her being in it.

      • (((Aron)))

        That movie was one of the funniest of the 80s, despite her being in it!

  • Emaily

    What a thumping bore.

  • Mark H. Sherwin

    See, it’s funny because Julia is Jewish, so Hitler, ha ha.

    Good to know that in case there is a open grave, we have someone to throw in it, Jackson would not be missed by her own dog.

  • Barry Reinitz

    Where to start. So stupid. Hitler took over the healthcare system to kill people. We want to save our elderly and sick. Huge difference . Big enough difference that even someone as thick as you should be able to see. Sorry about your cancer. I dealt with it too and I thank GOD for Obamacare as my healthcare did ok with the cancer but it wouldnt cover the problems with side effects from the treatment. You are one dumb as hell woman and that is why no one will touch you with a ten foot pole. You showed zero gratitude to SNL for your early success just complained. Who would want ot work with someone like that? Who?

    • r m reddicks

      Of course some of YKW’s “health care” was modeled on usa eugenicists of the time.

      • Clark_Nova

        As was their plan for concentration camps, which stemmed from German military observers of the “Long March” and subsequent imprisonment and attempted genocide of the Navajo nation at Ft. Sumner, NM.

        The protoype was tried out in the Boer War and was completely ready to go in the ’30’s. But it was essentially an American invention from the same US Army that gave us My Lai.

    • Part of Hitler’s health care system was having government subsidies pay for the Zyklon-B.

      • Clark_Nova

        I doubt that the supplies for the entire gas part of the holocaust actually cost the government more than whatever the equivalent of $1000 was in Reichmarks. Zyklon-B was just prussic acid crystals. Dirt cheap to manufacture.

        • (((Aron)))

          And still is: It’s a fantastic pesticide.

  • r m reddicks

    Well I lack a ten foot pole but I wouldn’t touch her with anything or object personally attached to me.

  • rubikcube

    This baby’s going viral!!

  • lurch394

    There was that movie, Casual Sex?, that she and Leah Thompson starred in. No, I haven’t seen it, either.

  • Jus_Wonderin

    One trick pony asks why……

  • Hazel Blumberg

    Yes indeed: Otto von Bismarck, who united Germany in 1871 through three wars, instituted universal health care for Germans. Otto von Bismarck has absolutely NOTHING to do with Hitler. Nothing. But morons like this “comedian” (?) wouldn’t know a thing about it. After all, if you’re a birther, you’re a Know-Nothing anyway.

  • Lizernst

    Victoria’s career and life is exactly where she deserves them to be.

  • Robert Slagle

    I could only get through less than half of her 5 min. stand up video. Didn’t find it funny. Laughing a the word ‘boob’ wasn’t funny even way when it was done on the game show Match Game. When my son was 7 or 8 years old he decided that everything would be funnier if it included the word ‘butt’. He grew out of it in about 6 months or so. How old is Ms. Jackson? Her politics of her own business, but it only makes sense that if you don’t want to offend half of your audience, in a bitterly divided country, their best not brought up with a megaphone. I read somewhere that Adam Sandler is a Republican. I don’t care for a lot of his comedy, but I certainly don’t hold that against him. He treats it as his own business. Incidentally what happened to Dennis Miller?

    • Qntino773

      Hopefully Dennis has exited stage left and will not come back. Shrill, alarmist observational comedy that relies heavily on negative stereotypes while juxtaposing the quirky nuances of Silvia Plath just isn’t funny. Ms. Jackson has yet to learn that point. Both Adam Sandler and Jerry Seinfeld to an extent are adjusting to that even though both have built in audiences.

      I know I may be asking for too much, but I really wish that our worthless media would stop giving airtime to ex-SNL bit players who wouldn’t have had any success had it not been for the other talents on that show.

      • Robert Slagle

        I completely agree with you. Even Al Franken, why love is a politician and like is the comedian had a starring movie it was only about half good, it was obvious that the production company could not find a decent ending for it. Best wishes and have a good weekend.

  • Paul Scarpelli

    Please tell Netflix and CMT that I, also too, want to borrow their 10-foot pole so I can not-touch Victoria Jackson with it.

  • A muslim in the WH would be hella better than what’s in there now. Victoria Jackson thinks it’s her politics that’s putting people off. No, Victoria, it’s that you’re dumb as a box of rocks, not-very-bright rocks at that.

  • Incoming Ham

    Two things stand out in that first photo: 1. It looks like the tamborine is attached to her hair like some accessory and 2) She is using that voodoo doll behind her to put some sort of strangling hex on some poor bastard.

  • I must admit when I find out an actor that I like is a Republican I do think less of them. I assume they have started to believe their own press and forgotten that luck plays a huge hand in an actor’s success. Then I think of that hilarious clip of Craig T Nelson railing against government assistance with this quote: “I’ve been on foodstamps and welfare, did anyone help me out?”

    When they play smart characters I tend to forget many of them are utter morons.

  • ACertainFish

    We’ll add to the RW major talent list: Kelsey Grammer. I’ll watch him in almost anything. Also, Gary Sinise, who in addition to his career does serious and real work for Vets. He hasn’t acted a lot in recent years but he’s the real deal.

  • ACertainFish

    Oh, another Victoria Jackson thing: “Casual Sex,” co-starring Lea Thompson. I’ve never been able to bring myself to watch it.

  • Jado

    I have no problem with actors acting, or comedians making me laugh. But conservatives do not seem to be able to separate their conservative mindset from ANYTHING else in their lives, so it infects everything. I have no desire to see a political diatribe from either side at a comedy club. And Sinise and Woods and Grammar all ACT when they act, so honestly I have little idea of their politics, because acting is a profession about pretend, so why would I care about their politics?

    I felt the same way about Jackson before she made EVERY DAMN THING she did about her politics. She had that video up about the “muslim in the white house” – did she have an alternate video up about just her comedy? Or is it all politics all the time?

    Yeah, the persecuted mindset infiltrates all aspects of their lives, so they can’t do anything that isn’t about conservative politics. So there is nothing else to enjoy unless you enjoy conservative politics. So they are unenjoyable. And i won’t watch things I don’t enjoy.
