Former SNL star Victoria Jackson’s postings on Big Hollywood provide a rich and scary vein of entertainment. She’s got the blithe, open candor of a five-year-old, and is about as intelligent. Likes include guns and Palin. Dislikes: the use of the F-word, especially in the mouth of Rahm Emanuel. By her own admission, she used to find politics “boring” until the election of ’08 inspired her to take up the conservative standard. Now it’s part of her civic duty to pen some of the most consistently hilarious—and not in a good way—articles the right-wing blogosphere has to offer. Most of her posts feature at least a handful of spectacularly sub-moronic utterings, and her latest is certainly no exception. She actually wrote the following statement: “I used to think black people didn’t like me because of the whole slavery thing.” Wow.
Jackson goes on to explain that she recently read a book (Lloyd Marcus’ “Confessions of a Black Conservative”) that disabused of her this idea. Turns out it wasn’t slavery, but rather liberals and their insidious lies! There’s plenty that could be said about this, but what I really can’t get over are Jackson’s foregone conclusions that a) black people don’t like her, and b.) that the reason for that dislike must have some logical explanation other than her being completely obtuse.
