Victoria Jackson: Tea Party princess

From SNL to the rabid right of modern politics

"Illegals can't vote!" her dad interrupts. "How can they?"

Victoria is stumped. "Because... because of cheating."

Tomorrow morning, she's headed to New York City to be on Fox & Friends. She'll plug Marriage Retreat, a Christian film about the sanctity of matrimony. Her small role, even she admits, "isn't going to win an Oscar." The demands of her new career, she laments, keep her away from her daughters and granddaughter. In a couple of weeks, she'll go "on a conservative cruise for [her] journalism job, and [she's] gonna do a handstand next to the Mayan rock that says the world is going to end in 2012."

As Victoria gets up to leave, father and daughter continue the list of who will vote for Obama: The liberals. The gays. The Muslims.

Says Jim: "Those who were aborted would if they were alive."

The family bursts into manic laughter. "Jim!" Marlene says. "You made a joke!"

This story is annoying and irrelevant. I weep for the paper that was wasted to print this. Slow news week in the Cities?

City Pages' role used to be local investigative journalism. Nothing says "advertising rag" like a generic cover story written on the cheap and with no relation to the Twin Cities. Worse than that, a story on some C-list celebrity with mentally weak Baptist parenting turning out to be a birther? Sad but not sure why we're supposed to be interested ... I guess it's a bit of a change from the publisher's self-serving articles on the sex-industry-kidnapping hoax ...

This weekly rag is "City Pages."How is this article relevant to our city? Maybe the paper should be called "Random Pages." Or "Who Cares Pages."

WHY did you waste your time writing this story? Ignore her and she'll go away; you're only encouraging the crazy by paying attention to her.

She was one of the highlights of her seasons on SNL. Those songs were hilarious. But today, she's clearly unbalanced. It's obvious that she's wrong, but she's also diagnosable. And hopefully treatable.

Earth to Victoria Jackson: No one wanted to imagine you naked in the 80s either! If she's delusional enough to imagine herself a bombshell...well, hmph. A 'birther' fixation is small potatoes in comparison.

This is a sad story. Seems like the brother who got away is the only OK one in the family.
