Barack Obama Is a Little Too Much Like The Anti-Christ For Victoria Jackson
For whatever reason it's been an especially busy election season for Saturday Night Live Alum.
Al Franken is in a tight race for a Senate seat in Minnesota. Tina Fey, winner of over 9000 Emmys, made her infamous "bitch is the new black" endorsement of Hillary, only to have Tracy Morgan refute it with "bitch may be the new black, but black is the new President, bitch" a week later.
On the other side, well, there's always Dennis Miller and Miami's own Victoria Jackson.
Jackson, who up until recently lived in the Magic City with her Miami-Dade police officer husband, is famous for her high pitched voice, a unique mix of comedy, gymnastics and ukulele playing, and lately for her extreme Christian views. On her official website she thanks God for John McCain and Sarah Palin and thinks Barack Obama resembles the anti-christ.
"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 people will ignorantly vote him into office.
You see, what bothers me most, besides being a Communist, and a racist ... is that he is a LIAR. He pretends to be a Christian and he incriminates himself everytime 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."
Could you read that to yourself with out imagining her voice in her head?
Riptide doesn't even know where to start with this, so we'll just leave it with another quote from an interview Jackson did two years ago:
"You know, there are Christians out there that make life rather embarrassing for other Christians."
