Victoria Jackson Is in Tampa Debating Super Heroes

Categories: Politicks
Well, it wouldn't be a crazy Republican sideshow without Miami's own SNL-star-turned-Tea-Party-queen Victoria Jackson. Everyone's favorite squeaky voiced conspiracy theorist is up in Tampa for the Republican National Convention with her video camera in hand. She's already run into a super hero who fights political apathy. Even though Mr. Super Hero says his favorite president in history is Ronald Reagan, Jackson still finds something to argue with him about.

Jackson apparently can not talk to anyone who does not believe Barack Obama is a communist (fact: Barack Obama is not a communist) without trying to convince them that Barack Obama is a communist. Which is awfully hard to do considering Barack Obama is not a communist. Even Reagan-lovers like this Spandex-clad dude sometimes seem to have a hard time buying into that idea.

But, we'll go ahead and let Vicky try and to explain it to you one more time.

The things that matter in this country have been reduced in choice, there are two political parties, there are a handful insurance companies, there are six or seven information centers...but if you want a bagel there are 23 flavors. Because you have the illusion of choice!” We all believe the system is somewhat rigged, bought and paid for by a handful of important corporations — ExxonMobil for energy policy — and lobby groups — the American Bankers Association for economic and fiscal policies. With the creation of political SuperPACs, the non-profits that donate tens of millions to politicians, a handful of wealthy individuals also are given more sway in national, and state level politics. Everyone knows it. Including Wall Street


Super PACs, Religion, & Lobbyists: “The Tea Party is funded by Koch Industries, or Big Oil. The Koch brothers gave over $55 million in bribes to scientists to say global warming is a hoax. They are a vast political network, sponsoring Christian conservative rallies and funding political ad campaigns nationwide. They are instrumental in busting unions and they pushed for the Citizens United/ ‘corporations are people’ law.” Government Salaries, Healthcare, & Retirement Benefits: “The average representative makes $174K a year, while the average American household makes $50K. In 2009, 261 of the 535 members of Congress were millionaires. In short, our federal lawmakers are nine times richer than the average American. They vote on their own raises, healthcare, and pension plans, and we are left with the bill. If government-run healthcare is good enough for Congress, it should be good enough for the rest of us
