It’s A Political Comedy Video With All Of Your Favorite People!

We have no idea who the people behind “Funny or Die” are… but apparently they are very well connected in Hollywood and Washington? This thing has its moments, such as Mike Gravel quietly reading the Pentagon Papers and Madame Peggington Noonanshire simply showing her Shining face. [via Fishbowl DC]

  1. Origami

    I never, ever want to see Larry King’s “sexy” face again.

    Pegs looks cute though! And she knows it.

  2. AnnieGetYourFun

    I don’t recognize any of those people when they are out of their element – i.e. my television. Except Joe. I would know that Easter Island-sized head anywhere.

  3. mattbolt

    This really needs a pop-up video version, because cable TV’s constant explanations of who people are and why they are important superimposed over their faces has withered my brain to the point where I can no longer identify basic people based solely on their appearance

    Also, “the people behind FunnyorDie” would most prominently be a Mister Will Fucking Ferrell, but it’s really just a video-posting site that’s a breeding ground for all kinds of comedy groups, these are just a couple of independent guys I’d never heard of with insane amounts of access

  4. assistant/atlas

    I always forget that Washington celebrities are so boring and ugly compared to the Hollywood ones.

    Also, I cannot fathom how someone can get that close to Tucker Carlson and not donkeypunch him.

    Who did they have to blow to get to Howard Dean? What was Wes Clark burning? Why, for the love of all that’s holy, was Jack Black nekkid?!
    At first I was yawning at a 70s-themed montage, but bravo fellas. I’m kinda jealous.

    [re=225953]Origami[/re]: I have thought exactly the same about the Pegstress’es appearances in the last few days. Does she have a little Hope in her, or is she getting laid?

  8. american mutt

    [re=225961]twowheeljunkie[/re]: you know, a few months ago i realized i worked for a creep who hired obama girl to do some modeling, like back in 2003. ugh.

  9. loudmouthredhead

    Is it weird that I recognized more of the politicians than the tv/music celebrities? Am I officially a political nerd now?

  10. blader

    I vote die
    because Newt!is the erectile dysfunction of intergoogle humor..a bad case of cancer seems a lot more funny

  11. OReillysVibrator

    Ehh, no comedy behind it, just the viral equivalent of name-dropping in the guise of high-fives.

  12. BadDog!

    I am surprised Wonkettes don’t know Funny or Die – check out Pearl the Landlord video on that site.
    I bow to the Wonkette.

  13. lmj

    As for shameless name and face dropping, I only recognized about a quarter of those people. I am so plugged in!
