Victoria Jackson on Obama = funny fail

You know, I remember when Victoria Jackson was on Saturday Night Live. She wasn't all that funny on her own, but she had decent timing and could at least be part of a gag. Remember how good she was in the Toonces spots?

Well, who would have thought she would have lost her sense of humor and turned into another fire-breathing nutbag conservative who thinks Obama is in league with the Devil? Or, worse, that she wouldn't have realized that she's not funny anymore and tried desperately to make us chuckle while she went on a tear?

No, it's no joke.

I’d been wondering why the liberals are so passionate about this Health Care thing. It couldn’t be because they actually care about sick, poor people. If they did, they would visit hospitals, and give ten percent of their gross salaries to Compassion International and World Vision, like us stupid church go-ers do. Biden gave $ 62 to charity last year.

No, there’s gotta be a catch. I guess this question was sitting in my brain and during my sleep, my brain was working on it, because when I suddenly awoke at 3 a.m. I had the answer.


Social Security and Medicare are broke. Baby boomers, like me, are getting old and will soon be asking for it. Socialized medicine makes people die. You stand in a long, long line with a breast lump, clogged artery, or sharp pencil stuck in your eye, and someone like the DMV person, who can’t speak English, has chewing gum, an attitiude, really long fake nails that curl up at the end, and is talking on a cell phone, enjoying their power trip moment, is finally face to face with you. They mumble something incoherent about paperwork. You die. One less person in line for Social Security and Medicare!

Obama legally kills babies and now he can legally kill Grandmas!

And it gets... worse. Really.

Vickie, honey, give it up. If you think this is socialism you are deluded. And if you're trying to be funny, then, much like Toonces driving a car, you're not doing it very well.

Octopus Pt. 2: David Kelly was writing a book?

David Kelly, weapons inspector, died in 2003 just after being grilled for his comments about the state of WMDs in Iraq. He seemed to think they didn't have any. Odd, that.

At the time some people thought his apparent suicide an odd coincidence, and wondered if he wasn't "suicided." Now we find out that he was working on a book at the time -- one that might have had more than just Iraqi beans to spill.

He was intending to reveal that he warned Prime Minister Tony Blair there were no weapons of mass destruction anywhere in Iraq weeks before the ­British and American invasion.

He had several discussions with a publisher in Oxford and was seeking advice on how far he could go without breaking the law on secrets.

his death, his computers were seized and it is still not known if any
rough draft was discovered by investigators and, if so, what happened
to the material.

Dr Kelly
was also intending to lift the lid on a potentially bigger scandal, his
own secret dealings in germ warfare with the apartheid regime in South

US television
investigators have spent four years preparing a 90-minute documentary,
Anthrax War, suggesting there is a global black market in anthrax and
exposing the mystery "suicides" of five government germ warfare
scientists from around the world.

How peculiar. Author about to blow the lid off something really big suddenly winds up dead in a suspicious suicide.

Why do I get the idea I've heard this one before?

Sarah Palin: Free to Secede?

There's been a lot of hash slung about Sarah Palin's rather abrupt and unexpected resignation as Governor of Alaska. All I have to offer is an unfond farewell and a question - where to now?

I'm wondering if we won't see something of her true colors at this point, now that she has everything to gain and nothing to lose. And I'm wondering how American they might be.

Remember during the campaign, when we learned that Palin's husband was a member of the Alaskan Independence Party for years? Remember when we also learned that she had, as governor, provided a taped keynote address for them in 2008?

Funny how those little things didn't seem to matter much to conservatives. They were too busy making hay about Obama's middle name, and how he was supposedly born in Kenya, to notice that the #2 on their ticket was seemingly okay rubbing elbows with people who want to take a star out of Old Glory.

Well, time has come again. Now we have learned more, most notably her attempt to downplay her husband's AIP membership by saying it was accidental, when there's really no way it could have been.

But here's the kicker: in a video of an AIP meeting, Vice Chairman Dexter Clark makes it sound like Sarah Palin was an AIP mole in the Republican Party...

And there was a lot of talk about her moving up. She was an AIP member before she got the job as a mayor of a small town — that was a non-partisan job. But to get along and go along — she eventually joined the Republican Party

... and then, at about 8:40 in, makes it clear that he approves of AIP members infiltrating other political parties in order to get elected.

And any one of your organizations should be using that same tactic to infiltrate. I know that Christian Exodus is in favor of it, I know that the Free State Movement is in favor of it. I don’t know that they even care which party it is. Which ever party you see where you can get something done, get into that political party, even though it does have it’s problems. Right now that is one of the only avenues. If you can get a few people on the city council, or a town board, you can have some effect.

So, now that Sarah Palin is no longer the Republican Governor, will she trade in her Elephant mask for a polar bear's? Will she "rejoin" the AIP and add her aw-shucks shtick to Alaska's pro-secessionist movement? Or will she bide her time, write a book, make a few million playing the "will she or won't she" game as 2012 draws near, only to duck out at the last moment?

We now have nothing but time to tell.
