From 'SNL' to 'OMG'

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 12-72-1You loved her on "SNL" in roles as varied as the woman who told Toonces to "look out!" and the best friend/coworker of [insert one of SNL's popular 80's era characters]. But now, two decades later, you can listen to the one who wasn't Jan Hooks or Nora Dunn delight you with her uber-rightie takes on the world outside of 30 Rock.

Hear such classics as "He's a Communist, racist, Muslim":

Or maybe an implication that Hillary Clinton is a murderess is more your speed:

Still want more? Well how about the idea that Christians who vote for Obama are not fit for Victoria's church dresses:

And then there is of course the brilliant bit of tried-and-true "pro-family" comedy that says liberals want to keep Christians from preaching Leviticus:

All these and many, many more can be found at link:

Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch: Here's sincerely hoping we won't hear similar thoughts from you during 2024's exciting Chelsea Clinton/Track Palin matchup!

Your thoughts

I hate washed-up actors.

Especially the lame ones from my era, like Kirk Cameron and Fred Savage. I was hoping I'd see the last of those 2 after 'The Wonder Years' was cancelled.

I'll be positive that it's the end of days if the 2 Corey's (Feldman and Haim) decides to make another movie together again.

Wow, I can't decide whether Victoria Jackson is a crazy idiot, or a stupid nutcase.
I saw a half-hour standup "special' of hers on Comedy Central a few years back and she was just...terrible.
In their heyday, Jan and Nora were more talented.
Kirk Cameron (who was on "Growing Pains", not "The Wonder Years") has also turned into something of a self-righteous fundie nutjob. He even starred in the "Left Behind" movies, and recently made a movie in which, for a scene that required his character to kiss a woman, had his wife put on a wig and act as a stand-in.
Fred Savage doesn't appear to be as messed-up. In fact, I kinda liked the short-lived sitcom he did with Jane Curtin, on which she played her gay son.

Wow, she is suh an incredibly crazy, washed-up has-been. More telling in some of those clips is the audience reactions. In a few cases, you can hear people groaning; in others, nervous laughter. It seemed as if her audience couldn't believe what she was saying but were going along with it nonetheless. It's people like Victoria who are so indoctrinated by their religion that there can be no room for discussion. Personally, I'd love to see her go up against someone like Tina Fey, who would probably verbally beat her up.

Oops-I meant "on which HE played her gay son" Darn typos.
Oh, and Scott-run for the hills!

Oh my god... that voice!

Bill,

Oh lord, I HAD to say that!!! LOL

A 'Lost Boys' sequel I guess can't be that bad, compared to what I would expect from the duo. You know: greasy hair, sunglasses, in their late 30's/early 40's and pretending to be 16 years old (much like the original cast of '90210' was doing), and chasing after jailbait girls.

It could have been worse!
