When people first found out that Victoria Jackson's ditsy blonde act wasn't actually an act, it was a little surprising. It recalled the old Twain quote, "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt." Even fellow ultra-conservatives have to be embarrassed at this point, like they are with Herman Cain's shenanigans. And now Jackson has a new internet show, launched Tuesday, called "Politichicks." It's kind of like The View if all the hosts were Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and it's a doozy.
Joining Jackson in a dimly-lit room with book-lined shelves are Sexual Purity Speaker Jannique Stewart, Patriot Update editor Jennie Jones, and Patriot Update columnist and video host Ann-Marie Murrell. You can see what's going on here. The other ladies, who wouldn't otherwise socialize with Jackson, have made a deal with the devil and built a show around a controversial "name." You can almost see the thought bubbles coming from their heads reading, "What is she talking about?"
The show kicks off with former Florida Bible College student Jackson champing at the bit to show off her ukelele-song-in-progress about the Islamization of America. It's like a ten-year-old playing for her parents' friends. Other hot-button topics like gay marriage, George Soros, and Sharia law are covered with predictable results. Jackson gets a dig in at Joy Behar, and says "Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano have dead eyes," fishing for laughs, with no bite. Murrell says, "All terrorists are Muslim." And so on.
I used to think that maybe Jackson had been shanghaied by some militia group and brainwashed with propaganda, but after she says her father had an old saying, "We're lucky that most Muslims are lukewarm or we'd all be dead," I now see where it comes from.
