Wait… I thought it was McWalnuts who couldn’t use a computer… Why does Hopey need a ROM manual?

Go ahead… hit me.

What jobs?

Serolf Divad November 5, 2008 at 4:16 pm

Huh… you win some you lose some I guess.

In other news: in case you haven’t cried enough already.

Tommy Says Soooo November 5, 2008 at 4:17 pm

I think that blingee should be re-done with Rahm in Hillary’s place as they drive the Jeep.

As long as he has a pork soda in his hand rather than a frappucino.

He needs to take it. I can’t make sexual puns about a chief of staff that looks like Axelrod or Daschle.

El Bombastico November 5, 2008 at 4:19 pm

Ha. Maybe Andrea can take a page out of Alan’s book and say she “found a flaw” in her bullshit reporting.

eatsshootsleaves November 5, 2008 at 4:23 pm

I do hope he takes it. I’m hoping for an exceptionally good-looking cabinet (also, Rahm’s intelligent, ruthless, effective, etc.)

Jim, not yet:

*** UPDATE *** In an email to NBC News, Emanuel spokeswoman Sarah Feinberg denies the reporting that Emanuel has accepted the chief of staff job.

Great. Now we can have a pitbull in a tutu.

Hmmm… I bet this “Emanuel” guy has loads of Google Ads on his home page and he’s just drawing this thing out in order to drive up ad revenue. Very clever.

Whenever I see Andrea Mitchell on the teevee my brain seizes on the image of a her receiving “the little chairman”, a twisted, wrinkly old cudgel of a liverspotted dick, with a giant, shiny silly putty colored choadnoggin. And I have to say, it makes me watch a lot less Andrea Mitchell.

on the plus side, we can probably look forward to a little less FCC intervention.

[re=167904]InKnockYouUs[/re]: this is very funny.

President X November 5, 2008 at 7:28 pm

4:25 pm PST – Liveblogging Oprah

Her Serene Highness “Peggy” Noonan has called President-erect Barry O’Bama “an interesting young man” who has “touched” her “heart”, and refers to the new president, “new House and new Senate” as a wave that Americans like only so long as that “wave” hits the beach “and washes away the trash and garbage”.

Piggy Noonan in the tank for Ba’arak Hussein? Or just in her royal cups??

[re=167751]Tommy Says Soooo[/re]: That was no Blingee. It was a handmade animated GIF like those painstakingly wrought by craftsmen of yore made when I was but a callow youth. Compared to these, a Blingee akin to the art of a messy monkey armed with a melting chocolate bar…
