Jon Lovitz has second thoughts about calling himself ‘liberal’

After boldly speaking out about his views on the economy and entrepreneurship, liberal comedian Jon Lovitz was pilloried by progressive tolerance bullies who told him to “STFU.” Meanwhile, conservatives cheered him for his candor.

Now the “Saturday Night Live” alum is doing a little political soul-searching and thinks he might just be a libertarian. Could it be he’s ready to move over to the right side of the aisle?

The Left’s continued insistence that Lovitz march in lockstep with Hollywood progressives appears to be pushing him in that direction. Last night Lovitz tweeted about his annoyance with the Huffington Post’s derisive, misleading coverage of his guest hosting stint on “The Dennis Miller Show.”

As usual, the Huffington Post misrepresented my views on President Obama jokes. They still don't get the jokes!!! Amazing!!!

Humorless liberals? Say it ain’t so, Jon!

Dana Carvey & I didn't say we wished more comics did Obama jokes. We agreed he's hard to make fun of or satirize. Hard to find a comic angle

Yeah, it’s tough out there for a comic under our dog-eating, mom jeans-wearing, teleprompter-dependent president who wants all Austrian-speaking asthmatics to have Breathalyzers. Luckily Lovitz seems tuned in to the comic fodder.

Whoever is President or in authority, a comic will mock. Everyone makes fun of the boss. It's not personal. Learning , Huffington Post???

I find it so odd that I'm a liberal and yet only the conservatives get I'm joking. And the liberals take everything literally.

We’re here when you’re ready, Jon.
