Jon Lovitz goes off on Obama (Jon was revving up the engine when the light turned green...!)
Politico ^ | 04/24/12 | Caitlin Mcdevitt

Posted on 04/24/2012 7:58:16 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

“Saturday Night Live” alum Jon Lovitz sounds like he’s pretty fed up with President Barack Obama.

“This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don’t pay their taxes is f---ing bulls---. And I voted for the guy and I’m a Democrat. What a f---ing asshole,” Lovitz recently said on his podcast “The ABC's of SNL." The episode was recorded in January and released on Sunday.

Hey Jon - voting democrat doesn’t in any way fulfill your obligation for charity, nor does it make you a good person. Nor does it “get the goyem”.

Democrats’ main goal is centralizing and empowering government, ie, building the kingdom of the anti-Christ.

Voting for and supporting Obama builds Satan’s kingdom.
Choose.

Those higher taxes must be a real burden on him and his wife Morgan Fairchild...

I like his humor. But if he has officially come out of the closet as a Conservative he is dead in Hollywierd.

I don't think he has come out of the closet as a Conservative officially or unofficially.

I do think he has checked around and taken the pulse of Hollywood, and he's decided to say out loud what a lot of his Hollywood pals are saying privately.

You have to remember that most sheeperal leftists (those that aren’t communists and would vehemently deny they support communists)

desperately seek to affirm the lie of “I’m a good person”.
They want government to do charity, they want to support that as their “good person creds”.

They’ll deny to their death that they were supporting communism in so doing.

You are correct. Lots of Hollywood jews will be voting for Romney. I am exposed to that milieu and they gave Obama the fair chance. They do not like him; they were hurt by him. They do not see him as friendly to Israel. They may only go to temple 2x a year and eat shellfish but they are Jewish still.

Dude, you won’t find much of stronger supporter of conservative Jews and Israel than you will in me, so don’t even go there.

But, that IS the reason liberal Jews won’t vote for a conservative - ‘cuz the Christians are out to get ‘em. Focus the accusation of parnoia where it’s deserved.

He isn’t. He used to play a character on Saturday Night Live who was a compulsive liar. “My wife...Morgan Fairchild...yeah, that’s the ticket.”

He’s probably still good friends with Dennis Miller, so Miller has rubbed off on him....also Victoria Jackson is very conservative, as well.

If that is the case, then why do they keep having $30,000 a plate fundraisers at places like George "Looney" Clooney's house?

BTW, how does paying 30,000 for 2 dollars worth of food get around the campaign finance restrictions on donations????? I would rather have straight up unlimited donations than all the crooked creative naming that goes on.

I said "a lot of his Hollywood pals," I didn't say "everyone in Hollywood." Clooney is a well-known hard lefty, along with Susan Sarandon, Cher, Shirley McLane, Whoopie Goldberg, Ted Dantzen, etc., etc., ad infinitum.

Hollywood, like any other workplace, is probably made up of factions and fiefdoms. For all I know, Lovitz sees Clooney once or twice a year, never talks to him, and doesn't depend on him for work.

Clooney's an medium-good actor, Lovitz is a comedian and a rather good one. Clooney's career skids were greased by his very famous mom. Lovitz had a childhood connection into the biz, but somewhat more tenuous. In any event, stand-up comics are some of the smartest people in the entertainment industry; they have to be. An actor can be as dumb as a post and it makes no difference at all, most of the time.

There are a few exceptions, of course. Judy Holliday, Jill St. John, (possibly) Julie Newmar come to mind among women. Also (possibly) Ann Margaret, and for sure Hedy Lamarr. Pat Sajak and Tom Sellick strike me as being pretty intelligent too, but they don't have the reputations that the three ladies I named have.

Those in Hollywood probably know very well who the dumb-dumbs are, just like people in any corporate culture come to figure out who's pulling the wagon and who's going along for the ride.

Mr. Lovitz has probably calculated that his career won't be hurt by going public with his opinion of Obama. He's probably right, too.

Master Thespian

Reminds me of his "Tales from the Crypt" part, begging John Astin to give him a role in the play.

OTOH, Lovitz did beat up Andy Dick a couple of years ago. Won't let go of blaming Dick for the death of Phil Hartman.

[ Welcome to conservative thinking, Jon. Hopefully you will continue to change. ]

There are a LOT of “closet conservatives” in hollywood who will say they are Democrats for employment reasons, because discrimination against republicans is considered an acceptable practice.

I have to wonder if Jon lovitz is one of these and he is testing the waters so to speak to get more people to come out against Obama as “Democrats” which would hurt him MORE than if it were “Republicans against Obama”.
