Tea Party Princess

Victoria Jackson went from the big leagues of comedy to the rabid right of modern politics

"Illegals can't vote!" her dad interrupts. "How can they?"

Victoria is stumped. "Because . . . because of cheating."

Tomorrow morning, she's headed to New York City to be on Fox & Friends. She'll plug Marriage Retreat, a Christian film about the sanctity of matrimony. Her small role, even she admits, "isn't going to win an Oscar." The demands of her new career, she laments, keep her away from her daughters and granddaughter. In a couple of weeks, she'll go "on a conservative cruise for [her] journalism job, and [she's] gonna do a handstand next to the Mayan rock that says the world is going to end in 2012."

Jackson’s handstand, which she learned at age four, earned her attention on SNL.

As Victoria gets up to leave, father and daughter continue the list of who will vote for Obama: the liberals. The gays. The Muslims.

Says Jim: "Those who were aborted would if they were alive."

The family bursts into manic laughter. "Jim!" Marlene says. "You made a joke!"
