Sexist CNN Dog Attacks Wonkette

Last night, Wonkette videographer Liz Glover stole someone’s CNN Grill credential and gained entry into this mysterious hub of vapidity, where she found a cute doggy sleeping through Sarah Palin’s “stemwinder” of a wingnut rant. Then she tried to interview The Daily Show‘s John Oliver, but he rejected her — he already had a make-out date scheduled with Dana Milbank in the Grill’s unisex bathroom. And then the sleeping dog awakens and attacks Liz Glover. No one helps for like a minute! CNN is corrupt with blood money. [YouTube]

    Looks like somebody’s bad dog will be riding on the roof of Mittens’ car tonight.

  • RuperttheBear

    Finally, a woman with clearly discernible ankles.

  • ManchuCandidate

    LOL

    Oh Liz, you could have taken fleeting fame to interview TDS’ John Oliver, but you didn’t.

    At least it wasn’t the pickle penised mutt of Sara’s pic. Like most straight males here, who probably would have humped your leg.

  • Viva la Cynthia

    If this footage aired at the RNC, and if Liz Glover had a horrific accent and no soul:

    Would that mutt have attacked the microphone if it was held by a MAN??

    **NOOOOOO!!!**

    Should women get paid just as much as men for the same work?

    **NOOOOOO!!!**

  • saridout

    did i hear correctly? is that dog’s name sarah?

  • american mutt

    [re=84708]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Sigh, I, I want to be the one “male here” to disagree with that. I want to be.

  • Tumerica

    Liz, I needed that laugh desperately. I think I even cackled. This impalin’ Palin thing is hard work and I am already pooped with being so obsessed with it like I am. Bring on the bad dogs!

    This. Was awesome.

  • brown_recluse

    THANK GOD this is being archived by the Library of Congress! Future generations must know!

  • AnalAnalytic

    Heh. Liz’s lucky ol’ doggie didn’t approach from a different direction :-) Very cool. Liz kinda doesn’t spend much time with dogs, eh? I bet Ms. Palin does :-)

  • Jingo

    How many times must the dog bark at you,”No interviews!”? If you dont stop bothering him, he’s gonna crawl across the floor, rubbing his ass on your brand new carpet.

  • AnalAnalytic

    Oh Liz you may have missed your chance for true love :-)

  • SkimLatteModerate

    That was pretty much completely amazing in every possible way.

  • Gopherit v2.0

    With all that heavy breathing, I’m sure there was some heavy petting later.

    That dog was adorable. As was Liz. Too bad Jamie Oliver is a corporate stooge. Damn you, John Stewart!

  • Outstando

    The can’t lock you up for the thoughts in your head yet, can they?

  • thefrontpage

    Liz Glover is a very attractive woman, it must be said.

  • Anonymous Office Zombie

    [re=84713]saridout[/re]: I heard Sarah. She must revert to her true form after midnight.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Woof!

  • Borat

    [re=84713]saridout[/re]: yes, i heard sarah for the dogs name too. she had a litter of 4-5 pups last time she got laid.

  • bitchincamaro

    Most incisive interview in the last 2 weeks. Pulitzer and a milk bone!

  • professor.cj

    Congratulations, Liz. You have joined The Professionals (in inimitable style)

  • Sean O

    Heavy breathing, a woman wrestling with a dog, this is the best porno ever.

  • CivicHoliday

    Hahaha! Oh, that made my day. John Oliver, luvs u, but don’t be such a pansy-ass and give us the good stuff already. And Puppy named Sarah, me luvs u 2. Even though your panting into the microphone creeped me out a bit because I started getting Larry Craig bathroom incident flashbacks.

  • naveed

    I am so happy now! That’s comedy that makes this whole week better. Thank you Liz.

  • mr.november

    Methinks that is Peggy Noonan’s dog and has been trained to attack all mics.

  • Outstando

    [re=84749]Sean O[/re]: Get out of my head, dude.

  • randomsausage

    She’s doing the whole hipster “flower-stapled-on-to-hair” thing again. No Liz no. Bad girl. No treat for you…..

  • Godless Liberal *

    Dearest Liz, I love you in a way that is possibly inappropriate and of which my wife would surely not approve.

  • Tawmn

    That’s not canine transcendence!

  • GlennBecksTaint

    sweet sweet mauling

  • Rodney Badger

    WHARRGARBL!!!!!

  • fishcanoeski

    Our Jack Russell would have done the same thing. Waggling a tennis ball on a stick can only mean one thing if you’re a dog. Partay!!

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …was that a “Hockey Mom” or a “Pitbull”, I couldn’t tell if it had on lipstick? Did anyone see any retarded puppies around?

  • The Incomparable Tiny Valdez

    In my totally demoralized state, that was a helping hand. I wish I had never been forced to meet those filthy Palins, I miss Hopey and I have been crying into my vodka for two days. That was the funniest thing I have seen in weeks, and I also stopped being gay because of Liz.

  • Kaylub

    Hmm, that dog was like 90% of the Republicans there then? It attacked the media, and was totally panting over Sarah Palin’s speech?

  • Outstando

    [re=84767]The Incomparable Tiny Valdez[/re]: That’s a helluva redemption tale. You should run for president.

  • Special Agent Jack Mehoff

    Yeeeaaaahhh!!!! Lubs it! Means it! Your mic totally looked like a tennis ball attached to a stick to me too! Ran right into the screen goin for it. Thanks for the har hitting footage of the layteez totally loosing it for Sarah Snowbilly in the ultra conservative CNN grill. Man, were they on fire or what!

  • Cape Clod

    I’ll translate his answers: “Sausages! Sausages! SAU-SA-GES! Sausage!”

  • jimh

    Liz makes me breathe that way too.
    This was awesome.

  • Rodney Badger

    [re=84759]randomsausage[/re]: Liz actually grows flowers out of her head. She also poops marshmallows and pees honey.

  • rollickingmadcapfarce

    The four-legged Sarah has a better grasp of the microphone that the two-legged one does of the issues. Welcome to Mooseport.

  • Outstando

    What this video needs is the humpty dance.

  • jagorev

    Bwahaha… the dog is named Sarah? Ha!

  • randomsausage

    Why was there a fuckin’ dog in the CNN Grille in the first place? Was it Korean night?

  • d4g33z

    Pinch his gums, Liz! (John Oliver’s gums, that is.)

  • loudmouthredhead

    “Waaa. I have to check with my bosses. Waaaa”

    Liz, that was too cute. Stop being cute. :)

    You played “Griff vs Hippies” with that dog, where you played intrepid Fox reporter Griff Jenkins and the dog played the part of the hippie mob that doesn’t believe in freedom. I’m not quite sure who won?

  • iwillsavethispatient

    Hey, some Tennesseean (sp?) just mentioned “the deck of an aircraft carrier”. Mission Accomplished everyone! Drink!

    Next week: Liz interviews a box of kittens?

  • loudmouthredhead

    [re=84784]randomsausage[/re]: She was there to catch the rats. That’s up to freakin’ code, man.

  • carerer

    “I’m not supposed to it unless it goes to Comedy Central”
    What, John Stewart now has the monopoly on comedy? Ridiculous.

  • randomsausage

    [re=84794]carerer[/re]: Comedy Central’s lawyers are feral swine: I had to deal with them once and they scared the bejesus out of me. They learned their trade at Disney and, as we know, The Mouse is one litigious fucker. John Oliver: no wonder you whussed out. If you appeared on Wonkette you’d be waterboarded by now.

  • Lazy Media

    That dog can hunt. Tennis balls, anyway, which are the arch-foes of the Labrador.

    Liz’s disappointment with John Oliver vs. Labrador attacking microphone, in Cute-Off of the Century! Sunday, Sunday, Sunday at the Tri-County Coliamphiteatre! Don’t miss it, BE THERE!!!!111!!

  • kudzu

    That dog is teh funny. Good job, Liz.

  • Delicious

    That was a well-done re-enactment of interns meeting Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room.

  • Jonny Lieberman

    Best. Political. Commentary. Ever!!!!

  • Volumptuous

    Holy crap the wonkettes have the hottest reportettes around. I’d mary all of you trollops!

  • lilblackcorvette

    anybody watching the daily show tonight? Jon is on FIRE!!!

  • Delicious

    [re=84815]Volumptuous[/re]: My heart belongs to Newell. Hawt!

  • Jebediah

    That guy totally says “Sarah, Let go! Drop it.”

    Oh, how I wish she would…

  • d4g33z

    Brian Clay = Fantastic New Super Hybrid Republican

  • ProgHead777

    The dog is just showing us her impression of Sarah Palin cracking under the pressure at the debate. It’s dog snark.

    Seriously, everyone sees this coming except Ms. Palin. The only way to get her to let go of the microphone will be to trade it for a moose antler which Todd always carries in the snowmobile trunk just in case.

  • schvitzatura

    Wonkette’s Parker Posey:

    No, that’s a bear in a, in a microphone costume!

  • CollegeStudent

    [re=84713]saridout[/re]: That’s the best part.
    That dog is the worst kind of sexist, a female sexist.
    That dog is a bitch.

  • Keram2

    [re=84703]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: BA-ZING.

    Seriously, that’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen all convention.

  • The 3-Legged Man

    In the spirit of the party of Lincoln, I feel obliged to say this: Viewed solely in terms of hanging meat, I’d say Liz is well above a 5.

    Based on the dog’s interest in the microphone, rather than in humping her leg, I’d say he was a Dem sympathizer.

    Back to you, Tucker.

  • graceless

    Liz, next time, tell the dog what you want it to do. Also, it’s the bottom of the jaw that moves, not the top. Good for you, for not freaking out, or flashing the camera!

  • zuhl

    The heavy breathing tells you that you are obviously in St. Paul at the RNC.

    Also, excellent recovery!

  • S.Luggo

    Liz deserves a Pulitzer for her interview with the McCain Rovian consultant Steve “Big Poopy Dog” Schmidt. Courage under snarling.

  • Hot_Carl

    Sarah was pissed you had the audacity to question how awesome Palin’s speeches are. Sexism indeed!

  • trondant

    Submit it to the Peabody Awards people.

  • trondant

    Also, kudos for pursuing the interview so doggedly.

  • redratio1

    First time I’ve seen Liz Glover is on the convention tour. My new favorite reporter extrodenar. And not just because she is cute…. well mostly.

  • srpen

    Heh, that dog was all “We’ll do it live!!!”

  • WIDTAP

    The Daily Show’s dark secret: John Oliver is a dick.

  • Kittenloss

    Wow. I really enjoyed that way more than I should have. dogs are the best and so, apparently, is Liz Glover.

  • Deepthroat

    I hate dogs. But Liz is so cute. Also, I think I would do John Oliver.

  • sezme

    Sarah the dog makes more good points that the rest of the MSM puditocracy put together. So funny.
