WaPo‘s “America’s Next Great Pundit”

No, Simon Cowell isn’t coming to DC, but WaPo is launching a fit-for-Washington version of “American Idol,” “America’s Next Great Pundit.”

Could you be the next Dana Milbank or Eugene Robinson? Starting today through October 21st, WaPo is taking submissions- ten of which will then compete in “rounds of challenges testing the skills a modern pundit must possess,” including writing on deadline, appearing on video, and fielding questions from Post readers.

The final prize is a 13-week column to appear in print and/or online, at the rate of $200 per column, totaling $2,600.

This is gonna be fun.
