Obviously, one of the very important political questions many of us had following Marco Rubio's State of the Union rebuttal and the gulp heard round the world was who would play him on Saturday Night Live? Obviously, the show couldn't resist, and sent out Taran Killam to play our junior Senator on W ... More >>
The Biebz is feelin' unloved.
Yeah ... Despite being an unfunny bazillionaire with good hair who gets to host Saturday Night Live (because SNL's ratings among tweenage girls suck?), Justin Bieber feels he deserves mooooooooore.
Namely, a Grammy. (Or at least a nomination.) 'Cause, like, he's mad ... More >>

Miami's own SNL star turned Tea Party Queen Victoria Jackson is not having a good day. After all, a communist remains in the White House. While it may not have been quite as ridiculous as Donald Trump's now infamous Twitter meltdown, Jackson vented her emotions on social media and proclaimed America ... More >>
Before we spent way too much time with Victoria Jackson-- the Miami-residing former Saturday Night Live castmember who has become a raving Tea Party luminary-- we got to know her new she-can't-be-serious persona the way the rest of America did: by gawking at online videos of her being bizarrely r ...

That Was The Week That Was aired in America on NBC from 1964 to 1965. The recurring cast -- David Frost, Henry Morgan, Alan Alda and Buck Henry -- would present the prior weeks news in satirical manner. You might think of it as a precursor to Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update. That's a lo ... More >>

We can not fathom a world where former SNL star and proud Miami-native Victoria Jackson didn't go on her weird rants about her strange political beliefs. I mean, we don't agree with anything she squeaks, but we will fight to the death for her right to squeak it (and, of course, our own right to l ... More >>
Perhaps in an alternative world Miami-native Victoria Jackson's post-SNL career could have been as a gay comedy icon. What better audience for her squeaky voice and kitsch comedy than the gays (who do you think still goes to Judy Tenuta shows?). Instead she's a right-wing wacko who attacked Glee ... More >>
It's with much trepidation that we once again visit the strange, twisted world of former SNL star, Miami native, and Tea Party sideshow Victoria Jackson. When she's not busy singing about how "there's a communist in the White House," she's cackling about how evil the Muslims and the gays are. In ... More >>

Oh no she didn't!
The second the N word left Dr. Laura Schlessinger's mouth on her nationally syndicated radio show last week she must have known she started another N word related crap storm. Dr. Laura doesn't have near the street cred a white person needs to get a ... More >>

Their most popular song off of their first and only album, Details, was featured in countless TV shows and movies like Garden State, Shrek 2, and The Holiday. Heap's second solo album, Speak for Yourself, really launched her into lim ... More >>
We have no clueT-Pain's Freaknik: The Musical is exactly the sort of amalgamation of talent and weirdness that the late-night, cartoon-watching, Doritos-eating demographic lives for, but how it plays out is a mystery. "It is based on Freaknik, a once popular annual festival in Atlanta, Georgia," ... More >>
So apparently Victoria Jackson's heartfelt column about breaking into tears over Year One's sheep-fucking jokes was the first in what we can only hope is a long line of columns for (former Drudge collaborator) Andrew Breitbart's conservative site Big Hollywood.Unfortunately, the SNL alum and Mi ...

We haven't checked in with Miami's own SNL alum Victoria Jackson since she compared Barack Obama to the Antichrist and then endorsed Rush Limbaugh for president. Apparently now she is walking out of all of these Jew-produced movies in tears. This weekend she took to Big Hollywood, a place for cons ... More >>
Imagine it. Every year, hundreds of parents in North Miami kiss their daughters goodbye as they're decked out in their finest sparkly pink minidresses and heading to their first prom, and then the mothers smirk: "Have fun at your Janet Reno dance party.""What are you talking about, Mom? Why do you h ... More >>
Earlier this year we got all excited when we thought the American remake of Kath & Kim was set in a fictional South Florida, before finding out it was set in a fictional Central Florida. The fate of that show remains up in the air (sigh, maybe we were the only ones who kinda, sorta liked it. ... More >>
It is common knowledge among conservative bloggers that the mainstream media was totally in the tank for Barack Obama during the whole election, but now that he's actually president, it seems they don't really know what to do with themselves. So they've reverted back to the only thing they've known ... More >>
