News Flash: Jackie Mason is a Moron

I think Jackie Mason may be the most annoying person on the entire planet. Naturally, the Worldnetdaily absolutely loves the guy, even giving him a column for a while. Now they’re writing articles reporting on what he said on one of their reporters’ radio show. And what he said is pretty darn stupid:

Legendary comedian Jackie Mason has uncorked a full-blown assault on President Obama and his troubled attempt at providing health care for Americans.

“It’s such a ridiculous thing. The whole country’s walking around wondering if this guy’s really the president of a country. He sounds more like a maniac in an asylum,” Mason said in a radio interview Sunday night.

Really, Jackie? The whole country thinks like you do? Including all the ones who voted him back into office a year ago. Why do the wingnuts always think that everyone agrees with them?

“He’s saying things that nobody believes. He was always lying every day of his life. Every time he talks it was a lie. The only time he tells the truth is when you didn’t hear from him.”…

“Never did I expect a guy like this, the head of a country, to blatantly lie to your face, and then not only lie to your face, then lie about the fact that he never lied. Then lie again about the next lie he told. There used to be a time when you would worship the president, even if you didn’t like him. You knew he told the truth because he’s the president of a country. Now, he’s the only guy in America who would have the nerve to lie this much.

“You say to yourself, ‘Wait a second. Who am I listening to? Was this guy actually elected to the presidency? A man who’s completely out of his mind, who’s out of touch with humanity, with America, who doesn’t seem to know what’s going on here? Does he read a paper?’

“A guy like this should be locked up … If he wasn’t the president, he’d be in jail or in a sanitarium. He wouldn’t be outside talking to people in this condition. He would be considered a danger to his own his own health, to his own life.

Again, really Jackie? You can’t believe a president would lie and then lie to cover up the lie? Were you sleeping through the entire buildup to the Iraq war? Iran-Contra? Watergate? The Gulf of Tonkin incident? Yes, President Obama is a liar. So is every president. So is every human being, including you. And those lies should be called out, as I’ve done for years. But to pretend that this is unprecedented is just moronic.

    Jackie Mason is still alive?

  • scienceavenger

    Shorter Jackie Mason, “nobody votes for him any more, he wins too often”*

    When I read the 4th paragraph, I half thought Mason was talking about Mitt Romney, for my money the greatest presidential liar of all time. Wonder if any of that bothered Jackie?

    Why do the wingnuts always think that everyone agrees with them?

    That’s a natural human tendancy, and I know plenty of liberals that fall prey to it as well. (“How could he have lost; everyone I know voted for it?”) But the problem is definitely far worse among right-wingers, since Fox, Rush, Drudge, etc have convinced them that all non-rightwing media are lying.

    Why do the wingnuts always think that everyone agrees with them?

    They don’t think that everyone agrees with them: they just think that anyone who doesn’t should be either killed or enslaved. Everyone who isn’t us

  • And I’m sure that their willingness to believe everything awful said about the man is totally unrelated to his being one of those bl…ah people.

    Jackie Who? Oh, you mean the hack that did Caddyshack II where he did a ham-handed impersonation of Rodney Dangerfield from the original Caddyshack. I didn’t even know he was alive. It looks like he’s doing a ham-handed job trying to impersonate a human being now

    The only reason “You can keep your insurance” is a lie is because it is predicated on the assumption that tie insurance companies would not be greedy and venal. Bad assumption.

  • a_ray_in_dilbert_space

    Jackie reminds me of the New York high-society liberal woman who refused to believe that Eisenhower had beaten Stevenson because she didn’t know anyone who had voted for him.

    Wingnuts are always imagining shit. Take Jackie Mason for example…PLEASE!

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Ah yes, I remember Jackie Mason back in 2006 saying the very same things about George W Bush, because they applied better to Bush than to any other president before or since.

    Oh wait, no I don’t.

  • Jackie Mason, wasn’t he that famous T.V. lawyer who never lost a case? Wait, that’s Perry Mason. I know, Jackie Mason is that famous Actor/comedian who played Minnesota Fats? Wait, that Jackie Gleason. So the question remains who is Jackie Mason, and why should I care?

  • Synfandel

    He’s the guy John Byner was immitating when he did the voice of Aardvark in the cartoon The Ant and the Aardvark.

  • Count me in the “Jackie Mason is still alive?” camp. Hadn’t seen or heard anything from him since the debacle known as Caddyshack II.

  • Pierce R. Butler

    No relation to Phil, I hope.

  • Doug Little

    Jackie who?

  • I normally read pages in the voice of Jackie Mason. It failed to add that special something to this one.

    Why do the wingnuts always think that everyone agrees with them?

    you just failed your test on authoritarianism Ed.

    the answer of course is projection.

  • Ichthyic

    “A guy like this should be locked up … If he wasn’t the president, he’d be in jail or in a sanitarium.

    like I said… projection.

  • scott

    You can tell how much of a liar he is by the way every time he gives a speech saying “I’m for X” his staff follows it up with a press release saying “What he meant is that he’s against X and always has been against X”.

    Oh, no, that was Romney again.

  • samgardner

    It isn’t as though the Republicans were trying to ensure this loophole — insurance companies cancelling policies before they would be prohibited from doing so — was closed. It would be far more likely they’d be working to keep it open.

  • Dave Maier

    Synfandel @12: Wow, good one, I forgot about The Ant and the Aardvark. But also, Mason himself was the voice of Krusty the Clown’s father (a rabbi) on an ep of The Simpsons.
