Victoria Jackson has stood by her comparison of the Newtown, Ct school shooting to Us President Barack Obama's pro-choice abortion policy. The former Saturday Night Live star was roundly condemned for a series of Facebook posts in the hours after a gunman murdered 20 children and six adults last Friday. Jackson openly mocked Obama tearing up as he spoke about the tragedy on Friday evening, writing: "Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said, 'The majority of those who died today were children - beautiful little kids... They had their entire lives ahead of them - birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own...' "Yeah Obama. Same As The Million Babies You Had Aborted This Year. Are You Crying For Them?" Jackson suggested to The Huffington Post earlier in the week that her remarks were justified. "I don't regret anything (more) »

Comedian-turned-unfortunate-loudmouth Victoria Jackson made some extremely controversial comments following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Ct last week, though they're not surprising to anyone familiar with her politics. (She said she was disgusted with Christians after Barack Obama won the election, and that America died. She's also said that rape pregnancies are a blessing.)
On her Facebook, the Tea Party member wrote: "My friend Jim Riley posted: 'Wasn't the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day? It's a wonder we don't have more 20 year old "dads" doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America. When you forget the Ten Commandments, people, This is what you get.'"
Commenters quickly took her to task, outraged at her suggestion that the suffering families in Newtown somehow deserved their pain. Jackson, however, remains unapologetic.
"I don't regret anything I have said," she tells Huffington Post. »
Victoria Jackson is under fire (again). The former Saturday Night Live player turned ultra-conservative blogger is taking the heat after comparing the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter in Newtown, Conn., to abortionists. So, what exactly did she have to say? "My friend Jim Riley posted: 'Wasn't the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day?' It's a wonder we don't have more 20 year old "dads" doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America," the comic wrote on her Facebook page Friday. "When you forget the Ten Commandments, people, This is what you get." And that was just the »

Donald Trump called for revolution. Victoria Jackson wept. Fox News' Karl Rove begged to differ with, well, Fox News. Here's a rundown of Election Day's five biggest meltdowns, in ascending order, from rumblings of discontent to a volcanic eruption so great not even the former star of Ugly Betty was left untouched. 1. Karl Rove Takes on Science: When Fox News called Ohio and, in turn, the White House for President Barack Obama, the architect of George W. Bush's campaigns questioned his own network's vote-trackers. Compared to the night's other meltdowns, Rove's thermostat actually held steady. But he turned up the heat by creating great, unscripted TV that even anchor Megyn Kelly called »

Still Reeling From The Obama Win?: Big time Obama supporter Beyonce took to her website, Tumblr and Instagram to celebrate the President's big win, where she kept it old school with a Sharpie and a sheet of lined notebook paper.

"Saturday Night Live" alum and right-wing Tea Party member Victoria Jackson is not happy about Barack Obama's reelection as President of the United States. As the news rolled in, she did the American thing: she took to her Twitter to rant and vent her frustration. "America died," she tweeted, and then a few minutes later, "I can't stop crying. America died."
She then turned to Facebook. "The Democrat party who voted God out of their platform and adopted Romans 1 as their platform won. In the Good vs. Evil Battle, today...evil won." Though she did have some supporters in the comments, it appears that most responses lean the other direction. "You know how I know that Obama winning a second term was gods will? Because it happend [sic]," wrote one commenter.
Jackson wasn't done yet, though. Oddly, the self-proclaimed "devout Christian" took aim at her own kind. "Thanks a lot Christians, »
Twitter is treated like something of a redheaded stepchild among literary forums, but honestly, it's the ideal place to be on important occasions like Election Day, Oscar Sunday, Holy Thursday, or Tuesday Weld's birthday. As comedian Guy Branum put it, "Social networking has made a fool of calloused old-school politics," and I have to concur: Twitter made a Election Day a blast while (get this!) keeping everyone informed. And energized and realistic and laughing. Yes, laughing. Thus, here's a collection of hilaaaarious tweets from great gay dudes you should follow immediately. Yes, I've inserted myself in the ranks. Don't mind me.
Right now Rush Limbaugh is shooting a shotgun at a glazed ham and devouring a raw pig.

Former Saturday Night Live comedian Victoria Jackson has criticised Barack Obama's re-election. The outspoken activist took to her Twitter page to slam the results of the presidential race, which saw Obama beat Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Jackson posted a link to her Facebook page, which included an image of a gravestone with the words "Rip America" on it, and said: "I can't stop crying." "America died," she wrote. "I can't stop crying. America died." Jackson continued her complaints on her Facebook page, writing: "The Democrat party who voted God out of their platform and adopted Romans 1 as their platform won. In the Good vs. Evil Battle, today... evil won." Back on (more) »

Tom Daley has the third best selling calendar of the year in the UK, despite being for 2013 and only being released a month ago. So who's topping Daley? One Direction holds the number two spot, while the top slot is held by Justin Bieber.
The latest positive indicator for Mitt Romney's campaign is that the Redskins lost this weekend. For the last 18 elections, if the Redskins won the home game before the election, the party that was in power stays in power, but if they lose, the other party takes over.
Kylie Minogue says that she's working on her new album, and while she may embrace her inner Ibiza, she hopes to bring songs like "Flower" that are more personal into the mix. »
Gentlemen, ladies and, err, more gentlemen… Ever wonder how it feels to lock eyes with pure evil? To encounter the countenance of wanton massacre? To stare at the gruesome visage of your impending doom?
Well wonder no more. This is what death looks like.
Don't believe me? Read on. Because by the end of this week's episode of Misfits, you will never think of milk (or any other dairy product) in the same way again.
Isn't he just adorable?
His daily and miserable routine involves by grabbing the bottles of milk delivered to his doorstep each morning, pouring said milk on his corn flakes and wolfing them down, then trudging over to a cafe where he gets to, you guessed it, provide milk for everyone's tea... at least I'm guessing its tea, considering it is the UK. Never speaking to anyone, he simply pours and watches customers walk away, »
Former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson has once again expressed opposition to same-sex marriage. Jackson has made numerous statements critical of the Lgbt community in recent years, including condemning Fox for airing a gay kiss on Glee in 2011. The comic was confronted about her opposition to same-sex unions while appearing on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday (October 16). "You have to take it up with God. God made the rules," Jackson said. "He made a man and woman's bodies fit together, he made the Ten Commandments. I believe the Bible is God's word and I base all my world view on the Bible." She added: "I have (more) »

Victoria Jackson was a "Saturday Night Live" cast member from 1986 to 1992 and then kind of dropped off the radar, until making headlines in 2011 for endorsing the Tea Party and singing songs like "There's a Communist Living in the White House" and saying President Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood and trying to take down the U.S. government from the inside.
Now in the last two weeks, Jackson has taken to the airwaves to express her feelings on some hot-button issues. The above video is from Howard Stern's radio show, where Stern asks her about gay marriage.
"You have to take it up with God. God made the rules. He made a man and woman's bodies fit together, he made the Ten Commandments. I believe the Bible is God's word and I base all my world view on the Bible," says Jackson.

Just saw the awesome Harold and Kumar video with President Obama. Will this get him more votes? —O.M. Justice, via Twitter You speak of a smokin'-fresh spoof in which Potus calls Harold and Kumar to get them, um, fired up for the Democratic National Convention. "Who was that?" a stoned-looking John Cho asks Kal Penn after listening to Barack Obama come through on an answering machine. "Sounded intense." Intense it may be, but according to political analysts, don't look for the spot--or opposing videos by folks like Victoria Jackson or Chuck Norris—to make much of a dent, at least, among voters who really matter. Why? Because the videos clearly appeal to »
If the whole talk show thing doesn't work out for Ellen DeGeneres, looks like she may have another career to fall back on -- house flipping!

The world often revolves around lunch, whether it’s a power lunch at The Palm or as simple as a cheeseburger and fries on the run.

Roald Dahl is a beloved children's book author who scares the hell out of me. I don't want to know where he lived, who raised him, or why he decided to address kids as an occupation, because the man is so, so disturbing. His Matilda is grim, his James and the Giant Peach is twisted, and his most beloved novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a frightening, cruel morality tale set in a candy-colored dystopia. I'm happy to report that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the 1971 film adaptation of Dahl's sugary absinthe dream starring Gene Wilder, Oscar winner Jack Albertson, and a crew of unknowns, is just as frightening and cruel as the source material. And it has a secret gay relevance that I figured out only last night! Hooray! Now it's the Best Movie Ever.
I'm sure you know the story, but I'll dutifully recount it: Charlie »
Kirk Cameron, 41, has gone from his TV teen idol days to starring in Fundamentalist Christian-themed movies such as Left Behind and Fireproof. Just recently, Cameron has also proven himself to be an outspoken anti-gay bigot, which has brought a swift response from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). While interviewed by CNN's Piers Morgan, Cameron said the following about homosexuality: "I think that it's — it's — it's unnatural. I think that it's — it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization." (Please scroll down for clips from the Morgan-Cameron interview, in addition to a video featuring Cameron and a banana as proof of God's existence.) Regarding marriage equality, Cameron explained that "marriage was defined by God a long time ago. Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve — one man, one woman for life till death do you part. »

The Oscars is probably my favorite award show that takes place next door to a Claire's. I'm serious. Have you been to the Kodak Theatre? It's basically a big recess in a Hollywood Boulevard mall, one with a Claire's and a Guess and an Express for Men. I remember watching Kate Winslet pick up her Oscar in 2009, the year I moved to L.A., and saying aloud, "So she basically walked past a Claire's to win that." It's tragic and telling. And kind of appropriate, because the Oscars -- much as I literally can't stop thinking about them -- are a mall-brand affair. The nominees are palatable, the format is bland, and the whole ceremony is devoted to mainstream flattery and appeal. But here's the other thing: I shop at the mall. It's at least clean.
And thankfully, »
