'SNL' Vet Rob Schneider Bails on Dems, Says Party Ruining California

I heard Rob Schneider talking politics on a comedy podcast a few years ago, and the Saturday Night Live alum exhibited fluent liberal-speak.

Now it appears Schneider has been mugged by a similar reality which hit fellow SNL mainstays Jon Lovitz and Dennis Miller.

Schneider, star of the bawdy big screen comedy Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo, told an interviewer this week that he's fed up with the Democrats who have made a mess of the Golden State. 

The state of California is a mess, and the supermajority of Democrats is not working. I’ve been a lifelong Democrat and I have to switch over because it no longer serves the people of this great state. We need to have a new voice. We need to have a new direction, and we need to break the supermajority. It isn’t helping with jobs.” 

“The last time I made a movie in California was seven years ago, And that’s because we’re not being competitive. I own a vitamin company with my friend and we moved out of state because of overregulation. It isn’t helping businesses. We're chasing businesses away ... we're scaring away people by the thousands.

Miller describes himself as a 9/11 Republican, someone whose ideological Etch-a-Sketch got jumbled by those terrorist attacks. Lovitz's quasi-conversion came when he became an entrepreneur and took flak for merely critiquing President Barack Obama.
