SNL Alum Victoria Jackson rants about Obama

"Respected" pundit Victoria Jackson let her crazy views on Barack Obama be known on her website. I put respected in quotation marks as I do not know in what circles Victoria Jackson is thought of as a respected pundit, and yet The Defamer refers to her as this. Anyway here's a snippet:

I don't want a political label, but Obama bears traits that resemble the anti- Christ and I'm scared to death that un- educated [sic] people will ignorantly vote him into office. My mom likes him because his children are well dressed!
You see, what bothers me most, besides that he is a Communist, and a whitey- hater, (although he is half white), is that he is a LIAR. He pretends to be a Christian and he incriminates himself everytime [sic] he speaks about Christianity. To lie about being a believer in Christ is very dangerous. Lightning could strike him at any minute! But seriously, he doesn't have a clue what the Bible says and yet he pretends to be a church- going Christian to win votes. That is sooooo evil.
I know my stance might keep me from LA jobs, since (almost) the whole town is liberal but, some time in a man's life, or a bleach blonde 49 year old woman's life, one must stand for what they believe in, and put truth before popularity.

Also, go to her website to read more of the same rant where she accuses Obama of not knowing his Bible.
And, Obama, when you say things like, "Sin is...being out of alignment with my values." That is a blaring siren of Biblical ignorance. The Bible says, "Sin is being out of alignment with God's values." That's like the number one lesson in every book of the Bible. You really need some help.

Yeah Obama, jeez, you really need some help. Go to Victoria Jackson and she'll clarify the entire Bible for you, because it seems to me you can't even tell your Old Testament from your left hand.

Movies out this weekend

SNL stars can be seen in a few movies that go on release this weekend.

THE ROCKER: Starring Rainn Wilson, The Rocker tells the story of an aging rocker who joins his nephew's band. Not getting the best reviews, but it stars SNL'ers Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis (who one reviewer described as stealing the movie).
HAMLET 2: Starring Steve Coogan, Hamlet 2 follows a high school drama teacher who produces a politically incorrect sequel to the Shakespeare classic Hamlet. While this has quite a low rating on iMDB (5.5/10), it has been getting good reviews and the Wall Street Journal noted that Amy Poehler makes a terrific appearance as a lawyer. This one's out on limited release this weekened.

TJ Miller wants you to know something..

If any of you read the report on E! Online, it went into how one comic by the name of TJ Miller allegedly blew his chances at SNL fame by acting totally obnoxious and turning Lorne off him completely.
Well TJ's hitting back at the claims that he blew his chances saying he just wanted to let the SNL crew who he really was and thus performed strange characters like a cool dude who's always on the verge of crying and an effeminate construction worker.

SNL Writer Simon Rich in line for Thurber Prize

Now anyone who has ever read this blog may or may not know that I am a huge Simon Rich fan.
Well his essay collection, "Ant Farm" has just been nominated for the prestigious Thurber Prize for American Humour.
The other nominees are :

Good luck Simon!

BuddyTV article

  1. BuddyTV write an article about who they think should host SNL's season premiere.
    Their choices are Michael Phelps, Miley Cyrus, Robert Downey Jr., Christian Slater and Adam Sandler.
    I love the idea of Michael Phelps hosting, not so much with Miley Cyrus. The other 3 are good choices too, but I don't think they're that suitable for a season premiere.
    My personal choices would be :
    Rainn Wilson
    Ricky Gervais
    Michael Phelps
    John Mayer
    Paul Rudd.

    Just my thoughts though!

    Here's a link to the BuddyTV article:

Molly Shannon in "Kath and Kim"

Molly Shannon is set to star alongside Selma Blair in a new American version of Kath and Kim.
It is set to debut on NBC on October 9.

Personally, I don't like the Australian one at all. There's something about it that makes me feel nautious so I'm curious as to see what the Americans will do with it.

Some Sad News

SNL's Chris Kattan has separated from his wife of just eight weeks.

Kattan married Sunshine Tutt, his girlfriend of 3 years in June.

A spokesperson for Kattan said that they are separated for the time being and have no plans for divorce.
Let's hope they can work it out.

New Cast Member - Bobby Moynihan

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

E! reported it yesterday. UCB then confirmed it. Now it's on the Huffington Post.
Bobby Moynihan is to join the SNL cast for season 34.
For those of you who don't know him, Bobby is a seasoned performer with the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre and appears in The Line (a web series written by and starring SNL cast members).

Apparently he is a very good black impersonator which will either be very well-received or will attract numerous complaints.
Congrats to Bobby!
