David Gregory Famous For One Thing: Dancing

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

'Here is where I keep my dance moves!'So who is this mysterious “David Gregory” who will replace Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews for MSNBC’s election coverage, ushering a nation of despairing libtards through the Debate Nightmares before dropping them off at the Tunnel of Doom on election day? A “seasoned political journalist” and known tall person, Gregory made his reportorial bones the old fashioned way: by dancing, repeatedly and embarrassingly, on television. A beautiful retrospective after the jump.

Here’s the night it all started: the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in 2007, when he did a homosexual tango with the obese stripper Karl Rove in front of an audience of Journalist Sellouts.

Then he performed a “brick dance” for Jeff Zucker on The Today Show.

Oh and then he did a secret sitting-down dance with Mary J. Blige and MC Karl Rove hidden under his desk, silently judging him.

    David Gregory is as hot as Rachel Maddow. For me anyway. I’m one the undecided.

  • columnv

    That middle video made me vomit in my cup and eat it and shit it out.

  • Serolf Divad

    More proof that white folks only dance at weddings… except for Karl Rove who only dances at funerals (that same dance, BTW).

  • lilblackcorvette

    of the undecided. He has that TIm Kaine ‘crazy eyebrow’ thing that works for me too.

  • MrAgro

    so if Olbermann and Matthews play off each other like Bert and Ernie, respectively, who does that make David Gregory?

  • Im Not Bitter!

    More dancing, that’s what the election coverage needs.

  • Miller

    And they’re going to sit this man behind a news desk instead of on a news dancefloor. Way to botch an asset, MSNBC. Think of the Dancing With the Stars crossover appeal.

  • MoodProcessor

    If he doesn’t fling poo at at least one of the debates, I’ll be highly disappointed.

  • sanantonerose

    MC Rove…dear God, I had almost forgotten. Kill me. Kill me now! Quickly!!!

    [re=88473]MrAgro[/re]: Big Bird?

  • Canuckledragger

    Yeah, he could really do The Brontosaurus…

  • KittyKatMan

    Damn, I want to die now. Being bi-racial, I’m ashamed of my half-honkey side.

  • nosnikreplliw

    what a journalistic fag.

  • ProgHead777

    I’m so ashamed of my race.

  • freakishlystrong

    [re=88485]KittyKatMan[/re]: Not to be babe, he’s ALL white ALL the time…

    [re=88477]mookworthjwilson[/re]: Someone should video themselves watching it so that we don’t have to go through the horror

  • asher

    MC Rove, I smell top 40!!! Where’s Ryan Seacrest. This is a joyous travesty

  • lilblackcorvette

    I don’t take any of them seriously. Listening to MSNBC was like having Wonkette read out loud. Fox is a series of “You got to be kidding me” talking points. In the Election I’m voting for the guy who appears to be the most intelligent. On the tube, I’m watching the guy who appears to have the biggest dick. THank you and good day.

  • Gopherit v2.0

    Christ, between that dancing and his White Guy’s Overbite, i’m less embarrassed to watch Dubya dance.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Well, since the election has already been decided by Diebold, we might as well have David dance for our enjoyment.

    The poor man’s Anderson Cooper.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    Hey, a bad haircut and some bad dancing got Ellen where she is today – in a lesbian marriage. Gregory can dream, right?

  • betweenstations

    When, oh when, will Anderson Cooper appear on DANCING WITH THE STARS?

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    [re=88468]Serolf Divad[/re]: Don’t forget, he also dances on the graves of his enemies.

  • facehead

    As a tall person, I denounce him now and forever.
