Arianna Huffington Has Unique Take On Clinton Appointment

We’ll put this nicely since we don’t wish to become victims of Gawker-style HuffPo blogroll revenge: GIVE THE POOR DUO A CHANCE, FAIREST ARIANNA! She writes in this column of hers, “It’s a Nora Ephron romantic comedy. When Hillary Met Barack. Sleepless in Chappaqua. You’ve Got Fundraising Email. Two intensely driven politicians cross paths, each seeking the highest office in the land — talk about a cute meet!” Just… gahh… hmm… we see the writerly device here and it’s trite vapid plagiarism of Maureen Dowd not very edifying. Look. This selection process has been the most drama-free thing a Clinton has ever done. Celebrate! [HuffPo] Read more on Arianna Huffington Has Unique Take On Clinton Appointment…

WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?: Your Wonkette will now link you to a Huffington Post page that excerpts a New York Times article about the Recession possibly celebrating its first birthday now, according to math and economists. Rather than link directly to the New York Times article, we wanted to ask you, the reader, to figure out why the Huffington Post illustrated this story with an AP picture of a polar bear in a zoo staring at an enormous wooden advent candle. Is it… “bear market?” Ben Bernanke is a bear? Oh, ha!…?? In any event, happy birthday, you brutal cycle of deleveraging, you. [HuffPo] Read more on …

John McCain Wants All ‘Joe The Plumbers’ In America To Send Him Amateur Porn Clips

Oh yes my friends, there is definitely a “JohnMcCain.com/Joe” site up and running now, and it’s a contest. How do you like that logo? It’s styled after a traditional blue collar name tag, for perhaps a set of overalls — a cute throwback to the 1950s, which was the last time America actually had blue collar jobs.

Huffington Post: Roman?

Oh no, the Huffington Post is using a late-90s software that writes its e-mail text in Latin! We knew this all along — they have been plagiarizing Augustus Caesar, the first black president (according to Toni Morrison). Thank you to 900 people who forwarded this! Who knew that so many people subscribed to the Huffington Post’s “Off The Bus” newsletter? Read more on Huffington Post: Roman?…

Paris Hilton’s Mom To McCain: No You’re Frivolous

We told you how Paris Hilton’s grandfather and dad were furious about John McCain’s idiot commercial comparing Barack Obama to white party girls, which was the horrible stunt that finally brought RACE into America’s colorblind politics. But now Paris’ own mom, Kathy Hilton, has published her terse tirade against the campaign her ultra-rich family once supported — she put it right there on Huffington Post, which is Rich America’s version of Twitter.

We Went To A Party At Netroots Nation!

Here’s the magic secret to throwing a good free party: Have an open bar that will pour actual booze instead of just beer and wine, serve good food, and make sure the attractive people show up. This last hurdle can be pretty difficult to overcome at a blogger party, which was why the geniuses at the Huffington Post and GQ made sure their Netroots Nation party would feature little Zooey Deschanel-lookalike nymphet waitresses and a healthy smattering of cute boys in slim-cut suits straight out of Mad Men. Of course everybody got wasted. Read more on We Went To A Party At Netroots Nation!…
 

Arianna Huffington Criticizes Harried ‘Conventional Wisdom Zombies’

newVideoPlayer("huff.flv", 463, 387,"");Wonkette’s Liz Glover had the opportunity last night to interview Arianna Huffington, founder of Daily Kos or something, about her new book and the nicknames she chooses for Tim Russert. When Liz is waiting for Arianna to sign her a copy of the book, some guy in line says “I know people that work for her,” presumably people who write for the Huffington Post. In other words, this guy knows any human being on earth. Read more on Arianna Huffington Criticizes Harried ‘Conventional Wisdom Zombies’…
 

‘Despicable Woman, Would You Agree?’

Bill O’Reilly is shocked that Huffington Post commenters say mean things about Nancy Reagan and Tony Snow! And so he sent some little man to confront the Hate Queen Arianna Huffington about her hateful hate speech and she had no response except some jibber jabber about how “the Internet works.” Read more on ‘Despicable Woman, Would You Agree?’…
 

LADIES ANGRY AT OTHER LADIES: How many feminists does it take to write a pathetically sincere Huffington Post column about how feminists are not going to take this whole “you have to vote for Hillary because she’s a lady” pressure from the Clintons? The answer is, of course, “That’s not funny!” (Also, the answer is “two,” as in “it took two feminists to write this shit.”) [Huffington Post] Read more on …
 

Live Nevada Coverage From An Empty Press Warehouse

Hooray, we’re here. There are about 500 people protesting for health care outside, and otherwise the Cashman Center is pretty much abandoned. Also, Wonkette’s filing desk is NEXT TO DAILY KOS AND HUFFINGTON POST AND MAYBE AOL … THIS WON’T STAND. We are going to look for some conservatives to sit by, because they’ll likely have much better jokes about the Democrats. Also, better cocaine. Back later; we are parked illegally and the Secret Service is kind of giving weird looks to our dirty old Beetle. Read more on Live Nevada Coverage From An Empty Press Warehouse…
 

A Children’s Treasury of Overblown Huffington Posts About Obama’s Victory

Apparently the Huffington Post bloggers saw a totally different Barack Obama speech last night — you know, one that wasn’t just some rich good-looking lawyer repeating the empty word “hope” like Rudy saying “9/11.” Here’s a sampling of the inspirational, pompous nonsense that is our substitute for actual insight in this goddamned country: Read more on A Children’s Treasury of Overblown Huffington Posts About Obama’s Victory…
 

Ed Koch: How’s Rudy Doing?

There’s not much love lost between former New York City Mayors Ed Koch and Rudy Giuliani. Rudy thinks Ed kinda screwed up Gotham and was soft on crime, while Ed thinks Rudy just basically sucks. “I’m just amazed that Giuliani is doing as well as he’s doing,” Koch told HuffPo. “He doesn’t deserve it.” Read more on Ed Koch: How’s Rudy Doing?…
 

Did John Edwards Sleep With This Lady?

Oh, that John Edwards sex scandal thing? It might have been planted and tended with care by the Huffington Post, sort of. Someone gave Sam Stein (former Newsweek intern-turned-HuffPo Political Journalist extraordinaire!) the story of some TOTALLY MYSTERIOUS VIDEOS that disappeared from John Edwards’ website. First it was a mere mysterious mystery — why would the Edwards’ campaign scrub all traces of these harmless, complimentary “meet the candidate” videos? Then it was a totally mysterious mystery involving a nutty, directionless hippie chick whom Edwards met in a bar. Read more on Did John Edwards Sleep With This Lady?…
 

Poorly Organized Party Metaphor For Entire Obama Campaign

HuffPo’s Glynnis MacNicol has had some bad luck with Senator Barry Hussein. She had a big crush on him, but then she went to a party he threw and was assaulted by the musical stylings of Ben Harper and a very boring stump speech. Then, last night, she went to another party he threw and didn’t even get in. Because the Obama people charged everyone $25 for tickets, overbooked the room, and left everyone standing outside because the hotel was full of the plus-ones and hangers-on of local bigwigs and Tammany Hall bosses. Poor Glynnis’ crush is practically ruined. Read more on Poorly Organized Party Metaphor For Entire Obama Campaign…
 

BREAKING … GUY WHO LIKES OBAMA MADE PRO-OBAMA VIDEO

Remember that semi-clever YouTube mix of the famous Apple 1984 commercial and Hillary’s acceptance speech? We posted it a few weeks ago and couldn’t imagine ever thinking about it again, but it apparently became a BIG SCANDAL and was even in this week’s Economist. WTF? Now the guy who threw it together is taking credit for it on Huffington Post — where he’s one of the 7,000 bloggers — and it turns out he sorta maybe worked on the Barry Hussein Obama campaign! Well, he worked for ” an internet company that provides technology to several presidential campaigns,” including Obama’s. And Tom Vilsack’s. So maybe he’s responsible for Vilsack’s Orwellian Hellscape Campaign, too! Read more on BREAKING … GUY WHO LIKES OBAMA MADE PRO-OBAMA VIDEO…

Another Political Commentator Says Something Provocative!

Forgetting for a moment that teevee political commentators are paid to be obnoxious, we will now cover Bill Maher’s provocative comments about how much better off we’d all be had that bomb only killed Dick Cheney in Afghanistan.

Bush Interview in Convenient/Worrying Graphic Form

Little Nicky Douglas over at the Huffington Post created the graphic you see above so that you don’t have to watch or read anything about President Bush’s interview on CBS last night. It’s the number of times he said the word “decision” in nine short minutes. Total Decision count: 24 decisions (including the two times he yelled it for some reason).

Victory By Failure!

Arianna Huffington was really pushing Murtha this week — not just as House leader, but as “Person of the Year.” Now that everybody’s saying they knew all along that Duckman would win, we figured Arianna would pop up with something similar, but instead she’s claiming total victory for Pelosi because … nobody paid any attention to Pelosi.

Q: How Many Lesbians Does It Take To Change a Lightbulb? A: That’s Not Funny

Here’s a recipe for dark comedy: One goofy clip of Borat abusing the dork host of the Today Show + hundreds of confused and enraged lefty commenters at Huffington Post. We know you don’t have time to read them all, so we make very nice sample for you, after the jump. Read more on Q: How Many Lesbians Does It Take To Change a Lightbulb? A: That’s Not Funny…
