Victoria Jackson, a weapons-grade moron who aspires to be merely a washed-up has-been, has filed the papers to run for public office in her home state of Tennessee. She wants to be a county commissioner there, presumably so she has a platform to keep saying incredibly stupid things and get attention for it.
Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Victoria Jackson wants her next act to be as a Williamson County Commissioner.
Jackson, who moved to Thompson’s Station last year, is petitioning as an independent to become a candidate for one of two District 2 commission seats, currently held by commissioners Betsy Hester and John Hancock.
In recent years, Jackson has made a name for herself as an active Tea Party participant, conservative activist, outspoken opponent of President Barack Obama, and occasional Fox News contributor. Now, she wants to get directly involved at the local level.
“I think the key to saving America is normal everyday citizens getting involved because we the people are supposed to be in control, not the government,” Jackson said. “I had a political awakening in 2007. I’m tired of complaining. I want to do something.”
Yeah, but can we at least get “normal everyday citizens” with an IQ higher than a pot roast?
