Janet Jackson Bares it Again On National TV (Sick Parody of Condi Rice Testimony)
Boston Herald ^ | April 11, 2004 | wire staff

She did.

Many fans of 'Saturday Night Live were wondering if singer Janet Jackson would duplicate her Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction last night-and she did.

But the nature of the skit in which she bared her bosom was a surprise.

Jackson was spoofing National Security Advisor Dr. Condoleezza Rice testifying before the 9/11 commission.

When the questioning got tough, Jackson-portraying Rice-opened her blouse and pretended to reveal her right breast-the same one seen by millions during her Super Bowl halftime appearance.

This time her chest wes obscured by a gray blob superimposed by the network.

As part of the skit, comedian Darrell Hammond-portraying Vice President Dick Cheney -has advised the Rice character to reveal 'just one headlight, real quick'- to distract the public from her testimony.

Yeah, I saw it - a new LOW for the SNL.

J. Jackson should be ashamed of herself making fun of her African American sister...

Ahh for the days of Phil Hartman and Dana Carvey. SNL Sucks Royal! "This Just In" last week did a great parody on how unfunny SNL has become and currently is.

That 'sister' crap is only for fellow liberal black women, and never offered regarding a conservative black woman by a liberal puke like Maxine Waters or S.Jackson Fleas. Incidentally, shame is something the Jackson family eschewed decades ago, in favor of wealth ... souls sold for wealth, now where have we heard that before?

The left thinks that just because conservatives don't resort to bad taste to get a laugh, they have no sence of humor. Shows how little they know. But you have to give Ms. Jackson credit--she has good silicone implants.

I don't watch SNL becuase it hasn't been funny since 1985 and I'm glad I missed this. So much for black sisterhood.

a new LOW for the SNL

The Low point was the raciest skit take off of an exploitative sitcom.

1. Who can stomach SNL on any given Sat. night?
2. Where is the bottommost point in the Janet Jackass career? How much further can/will she descend?

MADTv is on Fox at the same time as SNL. Their cast is much more talented and their skits much funnier.
MADTv is rarely political.
They focus on cultural events and spoof celebrities more than politicians.
NBC is pure Democrat propaganda beginning with the TODAY show and continuing with Brokaw,Brian Williams, Andrea Mitchell, David Gregory, Tim Russert,Chris Matthews, et,etc.
The 3 best voices in the GE family are Kudlow, Cramer and Dennis Miller-all relegated to CNBC.

I never saw it more obvious than these last 2 weeks too. After being totally pissed off by MSNBC's Matthews one night, I watched a story on CNN (no less) that was really very good covering a soldier who had been wounded and couldn't wait to get back to his unit. It was done very fairly and straight forward. Couldn't believe it was CNN!

Good one.

But isn't it pathetic for all Afro-Americans (girls in particular) ??
Here is C. Rice a real ROLE MODEL ! Intelligent, accomplished, witty, smart, brilliant musician etc....

And there is the Jacksons family...
Well my brothers and sisters make a choice !
(I am afraid I know the result...)

Remember, Janet Jackson is 36 years old-- time is running out. It's obvious that her quest in life is the quest for attention. I pity her. One day, in her free time, she'll look back and ask something like "is that all that I was?" What a nothing.

I agree. The Mad TV starts 1/2 earlier - then I switch between the two.

I have to say the SNL is pathetic.

Jim Belushi is still alive. So if he's in a grave I agree, he really must be turning in it.

>>>it hasn't been funny since 1985 <<<

That would be about right, give or take a year or two. Last *funny* thing I saw on SNL was William "The Shat Hit The Fans" Shatner doing the classic spoof of Star Trek conventioneers.

Quit watching soon afterwards, as it got too tedious trying to decide whether those things were really annoying commercials, that I should Mute; or, were just unfunny 'satires' of annoying commercials, that sould have been deleted.

SNL is irellevant, the show has sucked for so long I don't know how it stays on the air. Everytime I have tried to watch it after the first or second skit I turn it off. The writting and acting talent is at an all-time low. If it wasn't for us having to pay to watch TV they would not even be on anymore.

Cable TV is communism, you support shows like SNL by force.

....and Condi Rice has kept the black features that make her beautiful. Janet and others in her family abandoned their African features thinking white features would make them more acceptable.

Agree.

Shame on you, Janet.
Your community should be so proud of Dr. Condi Rice.

Your the reason conservatives have become so absolutely turned off by all you hollyweirdos. In groves we're turning off TV's, stopped going to motion pictures and no longer rent DVD's and video's.

She's not even sexy anymore. Just over the hill and dumb dumb dumb. Plenty of women are sexy at age 38 but not Janet Jackson. She looks like she has a nothing going on upstairs. Light's on, nobody's home.

I watched some of this last night. And, along with most other news I've seen this weekend - am amazed that the media seems to think history begins in the year 2000. It's as though the previous 8 years did not exist. I hope and pray our nation has a longer memory than the broadcasting executives think we have.

There is no way in this whole wide world that Janet Jackson could ever even come close to the class that flows in Dr. Rice's blood.

However, Janet Jackson COULD HAVE done some of the most remarkable things Dr. Rice had accomplished but...Janet chose another path. That was and is her choice.

Our choice? Dr. Rice any day of the week. A distinguished and dignified LADY of many talents. We are blessed to have her in the Bush Administration. I hope one day we will have the opportunity to vote for this grand woman should she choose to run for President of these United States. We sure hope so!!!

Hey, our own media can't remember much beyond a few years (long-term drug abuse will do that), so they do not expect us to be much better (culture of low expectations).

It COULD have been funny.

If, instead of a 'gray blob', they had used an overlay of John Kerry's head for her boob, it would have made sense.

Exposing him as a boob for the Commission (and world) to see would have been sheer satiric genius.

Let's try this again. "James" is another name for "Jim." Jim Belushi is alive, his brother JOHN is dead.

Otherwise, your point is well taken. John is probably turning in his grave at Martha's Vineyard.

Well, I'm not sure if it is because they are stupid. I do know however, they are not mature of mind to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong. They are not mature enough to realize when someone is leading them down a path they should not be taking. Everything is funny and everything is cool no matter how uncool. I think they do realize later on in life though what is here today and gone tomorrow. Hopefully by that time, they will know what is right and what is wrong for their country and their families and will cast their votes for the person who most cares about God, Country and Family.

You'd be surprised what surgery can do these days.

Just look what it did for Michael...
