    ... in pretty much anything, after finding out about most of hypocrisy of his political positions, and seeing him dance for the conservative monkeys in 2008. And I used to be such a fan. :(

      When you see Victoria Jackson making such a fool of herself, it kind of tarnishes all the great movies she was in.

      Oh, wait ...

      Patriotism is the FIRST refuge of the scoundrel.

        She has been in some great movies, it's just not everyone remembers they were more than silly comedies. The Pickup Artist, Casual Sex, Baby Boom, Her Minor Thing - they aren't Citizen Kane but all have some interesting things to say about love, relationships and our perceptions of sex in our society. And I Love You To Death is just fucking funny.

        She may be as vapid a twit as she pretends to be, but  she apparently has a decent agent.

        Plus, let's not forget she was part of one of the best casts of SNL in history - ironically the generation that also included Al Franken. I have to wonder how she and Miller can look back at those Weekend Update sketches, and not see where they've gone wrong.

        But the whole Adam Baldwin thing is what's truly killing me - I haven't watched Firefly or Serenity since I was forced to unfollow him on Twitter.
