POWER WORSHIP  2:03 pm October 29, 2009

‘MAGICAL ELVES’ ARE SHOOTING A D.C. REALITY SHOW, TOO: Yet another dumb new show about young rich sociopaths obsessed with power and clothes: “From the Emmy award-winning producers of Project Runway and Top Chef comes a new documentary series about the chic up and comers in our nation’s capital. If you are a Washington, D.C., society insider, recent college graduate or future political powerhouse, please e-mail us atcasting@magicalelves.com. You must be 21 or over and currently live in D.C. or be planning to move there in the next couple of months.” DON’T BELIEVE THEM! Magical elves (e.g. Mitt Romney) are known succubi. [Ezra Klein]


Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Yay Meghan McCain can finally get herself a job!

Larry McAwful October 29, 2009 at 2:05 pm

I thought Dennis Kucinich was Washington DC’s magic elf. My favorite magic elf remains Yes lead singer Jon Anderson, though.

Mittens is a mean elf, I bet.

Is this what the kids call Douchebags these days?

BeWoot October 29, 2009 at 2:09 pm

Intern Riley is 21, right?

Godless Liberal October 29, 2009 at 2:09 pm

Dear Jim: Fuck you for using that picture. Shit and piss do not come out of fabric easily.

Magicalelves will be disappointed when their cast turns out to be a bunch of people who like to waste time on Wonkette all day.

If you go to their website you’ll see they’re pushing to produce things like “Air Guitar Nation” and “America’s Next Producer”. So this garbage isn’t a stretch at all for them.

Terry October 29, 2009 at 2:13 pm

Someone make sure that this ad gets posted on LNS, please. The whole cast could be made up of legacy halfwits from Duke and UVa.

TGY October 29, 2009 at 2:14 pm

Not me. I turn the other chic.

friendlyskies October 29, 2009 at 2:17 pm

Moar buttsecks than Top Chef, too!

bitchincamaro October 29, 2009 at 2:20 pm

Something tells me there will be free “iPhones” on this one.

Larry McAwful October 29, 2009 at 2:20 pm

I like Top Cat. I miss Burger Chef. But I just can’t get into Top Chef. Why? Why? WHY??!?!?!11?

Monsieur Grumpe October 29, 2009 at 2:26 pm

I wrote them asking if I could be on the show. I claimed I worked for a drunken, abusive congressman. Think they’ll buy it?

Monsieur Grumpe October 29, 2009 at 2:30 pm

Bad address. Boy, am I disappointed.

Fly Over Girl October 29, 2009 at 2:32 pm

Um … a succubus (plural succubi; from Latin succuba; “prostitute” ) is a *female* demon that seduces men. Got the Romney and boys thing though.

AbstinenceOnly Ed October 29, 2009 at 2:34 pm

[re=446453]Fly Over Girl[/re]: Mittenz is in Incubus!??! Theyr RAWK!!!!

AggieDemocrat October 29, 2009 at 2:36 pm

Great, just what we need. More douchebag shows for douchebags that show douchebags at their douchebaggiest.

I hate everything.

the problem child October 29, 2009 at 2:39 pm

[re=446450]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: did you e-mail casting@magicalelves.com or some address that was fused to the word at?

queeraselvis v 2.0 October 29, 2009 at 2:40 pm

[re=446431]binarian[/re]: America’s Next Top Political Douchebag?

binarian October 29, 2009 at 2:46 pm

[re=446461]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: for that they need to go trolling near that club we used to make fun of here all the time. Can’t remember the name…..

Gopherit October 29, 2009 at 3:12 pm

this is going to be all about LNS and midnight Plan B runs.

Larry McAwful October 29, 2009 at 3:21 pm

[re=446466]binarian[/re]: Club for Growth, right?

Monsieur Grumpe October 29, 2009 at 4:07 pm

[re=446460]the problem child[/re]:
Doh, thanks.

Mizz Wonkette is a shoe in.

[re=446418]Larry McAwful[/re]: Nope, DC’s resident magic elf is long-time Michigan Senator Carl Levin. Though, if you want to split hairs he could be classified as D.C.’s resident gnome.
