Quote of the Week Month


"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."

-- Former Saturday Night Live castmember and current nobody Victoria Jackson, on her blog

We wouldn't be in this danger if it weren't for those abstinance-only Antichrist education initiatives.

Gretchen said...

Soo... "anti-Christ" is the new code word for "black?"

Fred said...

Theres nothing like a talentless, fat and stupid cunt's last gasp at notoriety. There- I just provided her with a label.

Captain Babypants said...

Wow. Just...wow. I thought it was a joke until I went to her blog.

Chez said...

Is confetti falling in your house, Fred? That's the 100th time you've used to word "cunt" this month.

Fits though.

Fifth Generation Leftist said...

I hate that word as a feminist woman-especially since it rhymes with my surname. However, I know dumb cuntiness when I see it too, Chez. And that statement is the zenith of dumb cuntiness.

Anonymous said...

Fred, you "get it".

Fred said...

I've been told in the past that I tend to use it liberally but it seems to fit so often.

If I say anything more I'll probably come out of it looking a little misogynistic, which I'm probably not.

So, you completely lost me on the confetti......

Chez said...

Confetti -- balloons -- you win a prize.

Interesting side note: Jackson graduated from Dade Christian School in Miami. I went there for a very brief period of time and wrote about it here.

Fred said...

To "Fifth Generation Leftist"- I will never, ever take issue with feminism. The glass ceiling should be shattered with the heads of those who maintain it.

I once had a roommate who considered herself quite the feminist, much to the chagrin of any self respecting feminist. She was overloaded with issues, as when she was not busy crusading for the castration of all things male, she was doing her BF's laundry, cleaning up after him, cooking and serving him his dinner, and to top it all off- Putting on the cheerleader outfit he bought for her at his command.

I reserve use of the word (I will not repeat it as a gesture of respect for you) for people like her, Palin, Fiorina and Jackson. I've been known to use it on men as well, just to get them all fired up if the situation warranted it.

Sweet, is this the blog were we can say "cunt" openly? Anyway, I think that McCain his self is the biggest "cunt" of all - he's "cuntier" then Bill Clinton.

Julius_Goat said...

That's the thing about Fred, I suppose, it's "Cunt-ry First."

Deacon Blue said...

Yeah, I saw a link to Victoria Jackson's blog months ago at some other blog, and was surprised to find out how nuts she is.

I like Christ. But I don't like crazy people for Christ.

Fred said...

"Confetti -- balloons -- you win a prize."

Awwwwww, Chez- I feel SO special :)


Would we be starting a Cunt count? Counting Cunts? I could go on but I'm not known for beating the proverbial dead horse. Much. Certainly not with large blunt objects. Not me, no way.

See You Next Tuesday said...

Seeing that I use the word as my handle around these parts, I see nothing wrong with the word. I refuse to let it offend me.

Anyway, I find it a useful addition to my vocabulary when it is used in a breathy, whispered request in the bedroom.

That context does not belong here, however. The context is clear today: Victoria Jackson is a stupid cunt.

pknaack1 said...

40% of Americans seem to agree with her. Maybe it is time to take Bill O'Reilly's advice and move us and our electric cars to France.

In my opinion, if there really is a God, He needs to get off His ass (are you supposed to capitalize Ass in this case? I don't know) and issue a few revisions to the old bible, cuz frankly I think his running mates here on Earth have gotten a little bit off-message in the last few thousand years. I also think its about time he came out with a position on which religion is right, cuz you know they can't all be right.

Actually, He'd probably just say "dudes, you're all smokin the drapes! I never sent you any saviors or prophets, all I ever wanted was a goat sacrifice now and then! Boy do I love goat meat."

Yeah. That's totally what He'd say.

Chez said...

I really have nothing against the word "cunt." In fact -- and I think I've said this before -- I'm big (no pun intended) on women who use that word to describe their "privates" instead of "pussy."

Talk dirty to me like that and I'm Jello.

Just sayin'.

Anonymous said...

Like I have always said: "Cunt first." Maybe me and McCain aren't so different after all?

Cheryl Robbins said...

Yeah, I took a look at her blog. She says she hopes everyone realizes that Obama is a "Communist" before it's too late.

I really am sick to death of people tossing around words like Socialism and Communism without ever picking up a book on the subject and reading it. I don't think anyone really has a right to label anything as "Communism" unless they've actually read the works of Marx and, more importantly, can understand them.

I posted up a giant blog on the topic the other day, but I'm not going to eat your whole comment space, just a chunk of it.

I know you know this already, but I'm repeating it wherever I can to try and lessen the fear-mongering of the talking heads, if at all possible. One person can only do much damage control in that sense.

In a nutshell, Socialism means that the government isn't going to allow a man to starve or suffer financially if he works hard. "To each according to his abilities, to each according to his work". Socialism just keeps the rich from taking advantage of the poor.

Communism, on the other hand, has a slightly different credo: To each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. So... Welfare isn't Socialism. It's Communism. Disability payments are not Socialism, they're Communism. We claim our children need to be educated, therefore, taxing to provide that need is also Communism. I'm not saying we don't need these things, but let's not turn random things into dirty words (in the manner in which we turned "Purple Heart" into a dirty word during the last election cycle).

Obama's health care plan isn't Communist or Socialist. It is a government-created product which will go for sale to the public. It is Capitolism. McCain's plan of taxing everyone's healthcare in order to provide a tax refund on healthcare is Communism, but poorly implemented. His plan to spend $300b to buy up mortgages and re-negotiate them to be cheaper isn't even Communism, it's something far worse... It's so out there, they even need to create a new motto for it "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his wants", that is, unless you're not rich. If you're not rich, then screw you, you proletariat bastards and get back to work.

em said...

Yeeeah, the worst thing about this story is that I just 'heard' her saying this stupid quote in her stupid, annoying voice. Gah.

Can you be a feminist and love the word "cunt"? Because I am, and I do. I like when things get a bit cunty, but usually not in this Victoria Jackson is a cunt sort of way. Sigh.

Anonymous said...

Why is it that so many "Christians" don't know their own fucking theology? There's no goddamned description of the antichrist in the bible. The word is only used in plural etc...etc... It's an invented concept (Not that the bible isn't invented, but that's a whole 'nother level of argument.)

This is like third order retardation.

Counting Cunts?


That's a band, right? All I know is that their lead singer is a douchebag, mostly for doing a cover of Big Yellow Taxi. Covering that song is an instant ticket to douchebaggery.

Amanda47 said...

I guess she's as dumb as she sounds.

Uneducated? Obama went to Columbia and Harvard.

happy_blackbird said...

I am a woman and I have absolutely no problem with the word cunt or using it in the derogatory or descriptive sense. It is succinct, its intent is lost on no one, and it is the best term I can think of for people like Sarah Palin and Victoria Jackson. I, personally, find it even more effective preceded by "stupid."

I also find nothing wrong with calling John McCain a hypocritical fuckstain. Sue me.

Mart said...

I thought she was cute when she exited SNL singing, "I Married A Cunt", or I mean A Cop.

Bill White said...

She's the only good thing that happened to Saturday Night Live. I also like how that Miller fellow came around. Otherwise that show is awful. If you want to see real comedy, you ought to check out anything by Foxworthy or Larry The Cable Guy. I'm sorry, but I'm a good conservative southern gent raised on "Hee Haw." I don't understand this offensive comedy from godless secular progressives like you. But, I'm on my back porch praying for y'all.

Hey Chez, did you see that my friend Joe endorsed McCain? We just might win this thing. I'm not sure what I'll do if Obama wins. He's gonna screw me worse than the time when my pal Eddy at the garage drank too much Jack and ripped my flannels off and had his way with me. That was back before we both gave up the drink and found Jesus.

when it comes to ignorant and uneducated she ought to know eh?

kanye said...

This just in: Victoria Jackson will be joining Gary Busey, Jeff Conway, China Doll, Margot Kidder and David Caruso this Spring in VH-1's newest reality show: "Celebrity Unfit Club".

As always, check local listings for times in your area.

Fuck. YES. If one more person misuses either term again, I swear I will beat them down with the Little Red Book.

If you are going to bitch about it, at least get it right, you fucking morons.

Sorry, this just reminds me of this guy (an otherwise nice fellow) who is rabidly anti-union because he feels it is "Communist" and only for people too lazy to work hard. All the while, he tells his hard-luck story about how he got royally screwed after leaving the military, and now can barely break even.

Yikes, I checked her blog, and she's a dick, too.

Izar Talon said...

The best part of all this bullshit about the evils of Communism is that Jesus and his disciples lived in and supported a Communist lifestyle, where everyone shared everything and preached that all people should love and support each other as if they were themselves and never deny anyone anything that they needed, and that it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of needle than for a rich man to get into heaven.

Also, not really on-topic but something that I've been hearing a lot about lately; the warnings against homosexuality in the Bible are against the ritualistic homosexual religious practices of other religions competing with Christianity, NOT because they said that homosexuality was bad in and of itself. But while homosexuality was a sin according to the bible only because certain other competing religions used it as a form of ritual worship, banking was labeled as wrong for it's own sake. That's where the whole "Jews are greedy and love money" bullshit comes from, because in the early middle ages Christians were prohibited from running banks, so a lot of intelligent Jews filled the vacuum and provided the much needed function of running banks. And the Christians got horribly jealous of them and started labeling ALL Jews as money grubbing monsters.

But you'll never hear anything about banking being a sin in church today, because modern American Christianity picks and chooses what it will preach about based on what its audience will tolerate hearing and will justify their sense of superiority over everyone else.

In the US people have somehow gotten the terms "Capitalism," "Socialism," and "Christianity" quite a bit confused. I used to go to church full time, was in the Youth Group, the choir... everything, (although thankfully I come from an intelligent and tolerant Methodist family who never embraced the rabid hatred all-too common in the modern Church) until I was ostracized by the Rush Limbaugh crowd of my church when I was about 16 for playing that "Satanic" Dungeons & Dragons game, which, even though by the mid 80's most people had gotten it through their heads that D&D is about as Satanic as Monopoly, the shitty little bit of Alabama-like strip of Pennsylvania that I live in (still love that analogy! :) ) still believed it in 1993, and STILL believes it around here even now, and just last year a man was assaulted by a group of zealots for openly carrying his D&D books home from a game with him one day.

Since my church days I've been to college and majored in Philosophy, had my eyes opened up quite a bit and learned how the Church developed from ideas of earlier religions, and then evolved by taking a little bit of this and a little bit of that from contemporary religions it was competing with at the time to make it more palatable for new converts, and since then I've become what I've since learned is pretty much a Deist, but DAMN, does shit like this still make me so furious it just makes me want to leave a bloody chicken on the doorstep of people who say shit like this, just to watch the ignorant bastards and fuckers scream about Satanists and the Anti-Christ.


God, I'm sorry again about the long comment, and I guess I'm just I'm a really big rant mood. But your blog is just about the most idealistically comfortable place for me I've ever found on the web, and it just makes me feel like my intellectual home in so many ways.


PS: Victoria Jackson has to be the most unfunny person who has EVER been on SNL.

Alex said...

Cheryl,

what's your blog? I'm really interested in reading up on more discussion on the misuse of these theories and getting facts straight with any moron who would enjoy claiming otherwise.

Amanda said...

I never understood why she was on SNL. She is handsdown the WORST cast-member in all their 20+ years of being on-air.

She should go make babies with Kirk Cameron.
