• HILL OPERATIVES, WE NEED YOU: Much as we’d love to visit the Super Bowl of Retardation this afternoon, we are somewhat low on regular staff these days (have you noticed?) and someone must be “at the desk.” Operatives, this is your time to shine!! Send photos of Rand Paul breaking into your boss’s office! And if you send e-mails like, “I can see the west lawn of the Capitol from my window, and the entire lawn is full of tea partiers,” maybe attach a photograph.

  1. My parents are currently storming the capital. I only have a gleeful tweet from my mom about peasants storming paris and a texted pic from my dad of a few lily-white splotches on the capital front lawn.

  2. Is “at the desk” better than “on the desk” or “under the desk?”

    Wonkette doesn’t have an office – but still has a desk? Is that a table at Starbuck’s?

  3. When the 9/12’ers needed picutres of a ton of people standing around in DC they just ran a photo from a few years before.

    If it’s good enough for them, why isn’t it good enough for us?

    That’s the New Media. Guy drives over a broken bottle in upstate New York and screams that his car has been vandalized. Want to make fun of our President? Go on Faux Noise and create a story about him staying at home watching a movie about himself.

    Facts? Who needs stickin’ facts?

    Spin to Win! Losing an election is a great victory – T-ballitics. Just make it up and run with it.

  4. [re=451108]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: John Voight, John Ratzenberger (Cliff from Cheers — who, surprisingly, was free today) and Betsy McCaughey — an illustrious and fact-free lineup if ever there was one. Who, after hearing these yokels speak and then enduring a rousing version of God Bless America, would not be persuaded that Blue Cross Blue Shield deserves every penny it gets?

  5. Is there going to be a ridiculously over-hyped half-game show? ‘Cause it just wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without a ridiculously over-hyped half-game show.

  6. If they want attention and we want images, how about someone sending a 20 foot silver mylar balloon with something dangling from below over the Capitol?

  7. [re=451182]Come here a minute[/re]:

    “Earlier out on the lakebed, team member Nick Burrows had pointed out how it grips the cable with modified skateboard wheels and the laser is aimed with an X Box game controller.”

    Now they have space elevators run by X box controllers, what’s next?
