BREAKING: White Male Is Washington Post’s ‘Next Pundit’

by Jack Stuef

Conor Willliams wins the title of America’s Next Great Pundit 2010, and along with it a three-month contract with The Post and a launching pad into the world of punditry.

Isn’t it more of a diving board than a launching pad?

Anyway, congrats, Conor! Now go sponge down Krauthammer with this bucket of vinegar.

And so we bring the second season of America’s Next Great Pundit to a close. And we leave the final word to you. What was your favorite part of this year’s contest? What should we do differently if we do it again?

Replace your whole opinion roster with Ford Tauruses. [WP]

Congratulations Conor Williams — your most important assignment will be to avoid disappearing without a trace like the previous winner.

It is a diving board, and as Krauthammer can testify, it's at the shallow end.

I still say Krauthammer is Howdy Doody…ever notice how skinny his neck is and how wide his shirt collars are?

It's like launching a Maxi-Pad in a catapult.

What is this "Washington Post" of which you speak?

"… the world of punditry."

Can we nuke that world from orbit?

Pretty please – it's the only way to be sure.

Hooray! Sociopathy for all! Accountability for no one! Sinecures for mediocrities! Dreams of bombing Iran for all!

The stable of Washington Post pundits: even the horses can't stand the stank.

Rich Whitey would have won but he was too busy as the Green Party standard bearer in Illinois.

"America’s Next Great Pundit"? I thought it was called "American Idle"

Ah, so the Post is admitting that they can find a better pundit by just throwing shit at a wall then looking at their own editorial page. At least this is something.

About time. The white male demographic has been seriously underrepresented in America. First the Washington Post, next the Presidency! We shall overcome.

Power, brother!
