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.
