Not To Be Out Did By Glenn Beck, Victoria Jackson Is For Real And Has Her Own Web Show, Too
At least, I'm fairly certain she isn't satirizing ultra conservatives like former liberal-ish Frank and Dennis Miller (no relation). If it is, she's so committed she should be in an institution. But even if she was faking it before she made it, there comes a point when the simulation ceases and all that's left is reality. And in this reality, we have Victoria Jackson co-hosting a political chat webseries in the same vein as "The View" called "PolitiChicks," where she gets to be the Star Jones, or the Rosie O'Donnel, or the Whoopi Goldberg of the bunch. And her show already has two episodes! Eat that, Glenn Beck's still "brainstorming" cartoon!
If Jackson's whole thing is a bit, I don't think pro-life activist Jannique Stewart, The Patriot Update's Ann-Marie Murrell and editor/activist Jennie Jones are aware of it. That, or those ladies are in on the worst performance art of all time, because damn if their bios don't read as perfect parodies of "Real Americans" -- not to be confused with the Real American Heroes, who get more entertaining the more one imbibes adult beverages. The other three also seem to be taking themselves very seriously as one of the few bastions of majority conservative thought. I'm pretty certain they each regret their life choices the instant Jackson opens her mouth.
The cringe inducing first episode is embedded below, and the second episode, wherein the PolitiChicks re-blow the lid off Obama's Birth Certificate, can be found on their site. If you can get further than two minutes in, you did better than me.
And some conservatives wonder why they find themselves the butt of the joke. That said, if this joke is really on us, that might be the funniest thing I've ever seen.
Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force and tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar. He found some fantastic "G.I. Joe" PSAs, all of which were really real, whereas the mocking dubs were all terrible. Turns out, the Overlord was right, it is pretty hard to mock something that's already self-mockery.
