Victoria Jackson Used to Shill for The 700 Club in "Comedy" Bits (1996-97)

Yesterday, celebrity Tea Partier and former Saturday Night Live comedian Victoria Jackson filed to run for county commission in Tennessee.  This morning, The 700 Club interviewed celebrity Tea Partier and former star of Cheers John Ratzenberger, ostensibly to discuss how faith has influenced his career, although he ended up talking more about being a carpenter who helped build the stage at Woodstock, and how much he loves The Godfather.  (Yeah, the whole interview was just shy of a train wreck.  I can't even link to the interview because The 700 Club is so ashamed of it, they haven't uploaded it yet. UPDATE: Link added. They finally posted it at 12: 45 pm.)

So this is as good a time as any for me to upload some of the times Victoria Jackson made recurring appearances on The 700 Club in the mid-1990s.  It's pretty harmless—and dumb—but it's good to remember that before she was the whackadoo celebrity queen of the Tea Party, she was a whackadoo hawker for Pat Robertson.
