    Even worse, they spelled it “holligram of Jennifer Yellin” in the ticker at the bottom of my livestream browser window.

    I for one am disappointed that she didn’t open with, “Help me, Wolf Blitzer, you’re my only hope!”

    [re=164578]Sassette[/re]: I am also disappointed that I didn’t check to see that joke had already been made four billion times before I made it myself.

    I love the blue outline and the low quality. It’s like they TRIED to make it look like Star Wars.

    Couldn’t tell via the internet if it was horrific or lame. That situation room is one little shop of tech horrors.

    This is a preview of things to come. We will all have holographic Obamas in our home in the near future to help us out around the house.

    That Stupid Ass Joe Biden is forcasting Suiside Bombings to start in major US Cities as soon as Bush is out.

    Our scout ships have reached Richmond, VA. They found the remains of a McCain HQ, but they estimate that it has been deserted for some time. They are now conducting an extensive search of the surrounding counties.

    Jim writes that this crap appeared on CNN at 7:15 and his post is time-stamped 7:25. That seems pretty quick to me (seriously). Thanks for the breaking news! I think you scooped Rachel Maddow’s Ms. Information segment.

    Is this the hologram that launched a thousand obnoxious Star Wars gags?

    Oh, what the hell. I still think it’s hilarious.
