Jon Lovitz addresses backlash from Left: 'Twitchy gets the humor'

You, dear Twitchy reader, get it.

So says embattled comedian and actor Jon Lovitz in an interview with Breitbart.com. Despite the volumes of evidence provided by one conservative hashtag game takeover after another, conservatives have a reputation for lacking a sense of humor. Lovitz, though, has seen otherwise. “[Breitbart] and Twitchy.com, they get the humor. The Huffington Post … their comedy guys have no sense of humor and their headlines are lying,” said Lovitz.

Lovitz earned the scorn of the Left in April when he called the idea that the rich don’t pay their taxes “fucking bullshit.”

Twitchy was there to document the left’s meltdown, as former fans of the comic (and of freedom of speech, apparently) turned on him in a bid to either distance themselves or shame the comic back into line ideologically.

“I meant what I said,” Lovitz told Breitbart.com. “I said what I said to make people laugh.” At least some of us got it.

    Lefties have no sense of humor unless it involves cussing, bodily excrement or wishing death to Conservatives.

  • COMPUABLE COMPUABLE

    • John Lovitz Pays Enough “Yeah! That’s the ticket!” (Uh…Backlash?)

    GOOD FOR YOU, JACK!

    Tough to stand by and remain silent when you’re listening to this pampered and pompous privileged ‘comedy actor’ prattle on. Just like during these (‘no-questions-please’) GOP right leaning and cheerleading promotional appearance that Mr Lovitz makes…

    Where the bright idea of a “Return to American Values” is making the wealthy wealthier and simultaneously dismantling Medicare; literally ‘crippling’ our seniors ability to maintain their vital health care coverage with security and level of dignity.

    Grandma can’t get her necessary new ‘Wheelchair Upgrade’ but Mitt Romney gets a Kick A*s Multi-Level Garage Installed? The Choice for 2012 Elections: Obama Cares vs. Romney “Who-Cares, Really?”

    And who exactly is more “deserving” in this situation?” John Lovitz an apathetic washed up, windbag comedian (who’s to evidently wealthy to care about the elderly anymore) or even Mitt Romney made money during his lifetime buying and selling businesses; and Granny and Grandpa worked and paid into their Medicaid account their ENTIRE lifetime!

    More Room For Mitt Romney’s ‘to-numerous-to-count’ comfy SUVs inside Park in Multi-Story Garage Elevator Or More Room for Our Senior Citizens and Disabled At their Doctor’s Offices?

    And more importantly: Which is the better investment in our nation’ Senior Citizens (not to mention their families) Future? Grandma’s Health Care continuance; or installing the multi-story ‘Garage’ at Mitt Romney and companies palatial mansions?

    I say send Mitt back to the Luxury Garage at his palatial mansion in Massachusetts and send our Grannies and Granddads back to her doctor’s appointments.

    Yes is it true that when mom and (grandma) not only ‘built it’ but she also paid into Medicare all their lives and now Mir and Ryan no longer wan the Government to live up to it’s obligation to pay for her health care anymore; so he can install an elevator?

    Maybe in addition to the multilevel Garage Elevator Mitt might need a three story Gazebo in the backyard, perhaps? The Choice for 2012 Election: Obama Cares vs. Romney “Who-Cares, Really?” Tour.

    We’ve heard this all before… Let Mitt, Koch and Co and their Wannabees keep his hundreds of millions who cares if grandma can’t get the care she needs anymore?

    And Why the Senior Citizens Medicare ‘health care’ coverage cuts NOW? When they are surely needed the most (by our elderly and disabled)?

    ‘Do Nothing to Help Out’ (so we can get elected) is now the norm; with ‘GOP complacency’ throughout; regarding our Nation’s (pre-2008) initiated Bush Great Recession That Obama Clearly Inherited?

    • Mitt Romney Get’s the Garage Elevator ~ Our Seniors and Disabled “Get the Shaft!” •

    Mitt Romney’s newly nominated ‘Step-And-Fetch’ sidekick Rep. Paul Ryan evidently solely passed a grand total of TWO bills into law during more than a DECADE of ‘slash-and-burn cuts. Thus; disregarding his state-employees’ lifetimes of service; as well as his beleaguered elderly, poor and disabled Iowa constituents health care needs.

    * TWO bills into law – in more than a DECADE! (10 yrs? – Wow!) And now the new vice presidential nominee wants just “FOUR MORE YEARS” to endeavor in his latest effort thus far (since the state employees benefits cuts back in Iowa) in their campaign:

    “Rom on Rye with no more meat and cheese; but plenty of mustard” GOP Nominees Health Care Platform evidently stands for: ‘Razing’ and Ruination of Senior, Disabled Care and Choices for Caucasian Black and Latino Female Reproductive Rights’

    And Why the Senior Citizens Medicare ‘health care’ coverage cuts NOW? When they are surely needed the most (by our elderly and disabled)? Do Nothing to Help is Now the Norm – with ‘GOP complacency’ throughout; regarding our Nation’s (pre-2008) initiated Bush Great Recession That Obama Clearly Inherited?

    * Solely so Mitt and his fellow cronies and backers continue declaring a maybe 14% or even less on their yearly tax ‘burden’ on their returns? Mitt and his ‘Koch Bros Wannabees” get to keep 86% of the enormous ‘Individual Wealth Assets of the Venture Capitalists’ for their ‘backers.’

    Imagine that: The very same people who originally got us all into this mess in the first place; needing endless continued ‘bail-outs.’ while the nations’ grannies and grandpas on Medicare (who had nothing at all to do with their micromanagement) are the ones who get the CUTS! They are the ones who get their health care slashed and can no longer pay the enormous increases anymore?

    There’s ONE thing even more ‘atrociously despicable’ than elected pols who knowingly, deliberately and unendingly demonize the poverty stricken, elderly/disabled and disseminate demoralizing untruths about no longer being able to afford their ‘continued’ care – and that is:

    A candidate and his sidekick that do so solely at the ‘Behest’ and in the ‘Best Interests’ of their Koch and Co. backers; in order to continue increasing the depths of the ‘bottomless hole’ of their ‘unquestionably nearly perpetual’ GOP Campaign War Chest.

    Furthermore if these two Republican candidates actually get their wish and pull off a win the fall election; should we allow them to go though their plan to perform a diabolical and sacrificial vivisection of seniors Medicare coverage?

    Solely so Mitt and his fellow cronies and backers can continue declaring a maybe 14% or even less on their yearly tax ‘burden’ on their returns? They get to keep 86% of their enormous wealth and the country’s grandmas and grandpas out there on Medicare get their health care cut and/or either cannot see their doctor anymore because they cannot pay the enormous increases anymore?

    Tough to stand by and remain silent and civil when your listening to a guy prattle on and (during these ‘no-questions-please’ campaign bus stops) whose idea of a “Return to American Values” is making the wealthy wealthier and simultaneously dismantling Medicare.

    And then to top it all off; replacing it with “Scratch Ticket Vouchers” which are going to not only take away our seniors and disabled people’s vital (can’t-live-without) health care coverage’ but also consequently forcing grandma and grandpa in a homeless shelter because they and their children are unable to endure the subsequent higher deductibles and make the new co-payments.

    In addition to that potential dilemma; who exactly do you think is going to be forced to lend a hand and consequently foot the bills for the future whopping out-of-pocket expenses senior and disabled ever-increasing medical bills – their families, that’s who! And when their savings runs out; do we stand by silently and go back to the days of the aged being forced to stock up on cat food cans or being compelled to live in homeless shelters when they can no longer afford their homes or stay with their children any longer.

    For example: Having to suddenly foot-the-entire-bill for much higher deductibles as well as for the extra costs and higher co-payments for their prescriptions; which will likely result in non-use of essential meds and medical services for these seniors and disabled peoples care: Will their children and/or their other already-struggling families be forced to pay the difference?

    These guys also want to “End Food Stamps as We Need it” for the folks who are either senior, disabled and/or those who are unemployment eligibility have dried up. And who’s next to demonized? What about VA commensurable service-connected conditions as well as those veterans needing nursing home care and inpatient hospitalizations. Will Romney and Ryan eventually also demonize and then chuck these guys and gals under the bus too?

    Grandma can’t get her necessary new ‘Wheelchair Upgrade’ but Mitt Romney gets a Kick A*s Multi-Level Garage Installed? The Choice for 2012 Elections: Obama Cares vs. Romney “Who-Cares, Really?”
