The Washington Post has lost it over that Internet thingie

I was getting a modest chuckle out of this WaPo item,

I ran a Google search to check out that guy from the party.


I googled that hottie.
when I spotted an offer on the sidebar - Video Mash-Up:
Welcome to the Video Mash-Up, where our readers have the opportunity to create their own interview clips opposite Post political reporter Dana Milbank. We provide the questions, you provide the answers!

First, download the MPEG2 video clip you see playing at the top of this page, using the "Download Clip" button below. Using your own editing software, cut it up any way you like and splice in your own video, according to the rules below. Then attach your finished mash-up clip to an e-mail and send it to the address below.

In a few weeks will post all videos submitted that meet the requirements below and will give viewers the opportunity to comment and rate the videos. That's not a deadline, though -- we'll keep posting new videos if we keep getting them from you.
At first ole Dana sits there like a constipated pigeon reading some typical boring political interview questions, but later on he provides some mugging for the camera (e.g. yawn, open mouthed surprise, checking non-existent watch) and starts asking about things like "... the visit to the vampire bat preserve. How's the recovery going?" Uh oh! I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at the staff meeting where they thought this one up!

Now the WaPo clearly wants players to splice in their own personal clips since one of the rules is,

Submissions will be disqualified if they violate copyright or are determined to be offensive, threatening, defamatory or libelous. You must have full rights to any material you include in your submission.
but with comedy gold like this, who cares about their goofy contest when you can mash it up with clips of some bloviating airhead like Ned Lamont or Cindy Sheehan and slap it on YouTube or someplace similar? I hope Dana is prepared to see versions of this circulating up to and beyond the point he stops circulating.

Now if the New York Times would only emulate it and come out with the Maureen Dowd version!

I've never seen a rendition of "Sweet Home Alabama" quite like this

I'd never heard of the Leningrad Cowboys before either, but the Red Army choir looks kind of familiar.

Loads of Fidel fun!

(Via Babalu) Where's Fidel? I'm keeping an eye out for the old thug at Ned Lamont campaign events, myself.

Lying Ned Lamont

Jane Hamsher
Dang, that's scary!

Here's Mr. Pencil Neck trying to disassociate himself from the delusional ranting of moonbat supporter Jane Hamsher:
"I don't know anything about the blogs," he said according to Dan Balz in the Washington Post. "I'm not responsible for those. I have no comment on them."

Oh my.
He can't run from the bloggers. And he can't run from Hamsher, who has raised money for him, boosted him tirelessly, and even helped him shoot a video blog. He's their guy.
More like he's their lap dog. But wait, there's more - Lamont's spokesperson, Liz Dupont-Diehl claims:
"This is a distraction," she said. "This did not come from our campaign. Bloggers are independent entities, covering campaigns. Like reporters, they travel with campaigns and cover campaigns."
Asked if it was fair to say the Lamont campaign has actively reached out to bloggers, she said, "No."

Lieberman's camp condemned the photo and disputed Dupont-Diehl's characterization of the relationship between Lamont and liberal blogs.

"That is a shameless lie," said Dan Gerstein, a spokesman for the Senator. "Reporters don't raise money for campaigns ... There are some gray areas with reporters, but this is not one of them."

In a video posted at the popular site, Lamont himself references "friends at Firedoglake" in an interview with Hamsher. There is also a link to at Ned Lamont's official campaign web site.
Firedoglake is Hamsher's blog and as far as the cash goes:
According to the fundraising site, Hamsher and two other bloggers have raised over $50,000 for Lamont's Senate campaign.
Even more Loonie Jane Hamsher fun:
... the blogger, Jane Hamsher, has been closely involved in the Lamont campaign, even driving the campaign manager on Monday to New York for Mr. Lamont's appearance on "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central.
Maybe they thought she was just an aging groupie hanging around in hopes of a quickie? A really weird and skanky groupie.

Update: Yet more Loonie Jane Fun with Ace and JustOneMinute.

Today's Hoot!

Works on Islamofascists too.

Today's Hoot!

Conan O'Brien:
Fidel Castro is still in the hospital with a serious medical condition. He still thinks communism was a good idea until he was being rushed to the hospital in a ’55 Oldsmobile.
And the doctor showed him the latest technology in the government hospital - the enema bag.

Uhoh! Ned Lamont's nutroots exposed for everyone to see!

Ned Lamont tries to cover up his exposed nutroots

Everyone's favorite pencil neck freak, Ned Lamont, is going to have to work a whole lot harder to prove that his supporters don't need a checkup from the neck up. Lotsa luck with that, Ned! Of course, since he's their lap dog, one can't help but wonder about him too. More from Allah here.

Today's Big Snooze!

Cher Flogs Off All Her Old Crap:
When most people redecorate their homes, they'll just bung down any old tatty carpet and the cheapest Ikea sofa they can find, but not Cher. To redecorate her home, Cher first has to sell off 700 bits of old tat just to make room.

That's right - you can be the proud owner of any number of crazy old crap that Cher used to own. Cher is auctioning off more than one million dollars worth of her belongings, like her bed, some of her near-pornographic stage costumes and a 500-year-old Jesus. The Cher auction looks to be the place to pick up the perfect Christmas present for the creepy homosexual or bitter red-eyed divorcee in your life.

Cher's been keeping herself to herself lately - apart from another traditional retirement announcement, or course. But it's generally agreed that a semi-reclusive Cher is preferable to seeing an old woman mong about a stage singing songs 20 years too young for her while wearing a scrap of lycra that barely covers her labia. After all, we've got Madonna for that now.

Moonbat Mom in Smoothie Horror!

Social news: When last we visited Moonbat Cindy Sheehan, the aging media whore was leading a novel celebrity fast where apparently all you could eat was dessert. Good news for her sweet tooth, bad news for her waistline:

Fat Cindy Sheehan claims to be fasting
"I want to fast some more!"

Now, however, pals of the one time photo-op princess are worried about the effects of the all-dessert diet on the ballooning bimbo and are increasingly troubled by her consuming addiction to sugary treats. Says an anonymous Code Pinko worker at the Crawford, Texas Peace House where Cindy has been parking her wide load lately, "It was darn hot and I was having an ice cream cone when Cindy saw me. It was like Moby Dick spotting Captain Ahab! She chased me around the house 3 times and when the cone fell in the dirt, she got down on all fours and lapped it up, grunting all the while. I wouldn't have minded so much if she hadn't just cleaned out the Peace House pantry and and inhaled all the Twinkies, Ring Dings, Scooter Pies and the last two 3 liter bottles of Dr. Pepper."

The peace freak politicos think there may be an upside though and are already planning a new publicity campaign blaming the humongous harpy's increasingly aberrant appearance on a Bush administration plot:

Stay tuned.
