Sharron Angle is running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. In the state that brought us “checkups for chickens,” Angle has managed to out gaffe everyone. On Friday she told a group of Latino high school students that they really looked Asian to her. And that she herself had been mistaken for being Asian.
Last week the appointed governor of Arizona running for the office for the first time had her first televised debate. How’d it go? Well it’s all over the Internet. That’s good right? Let’s just say that in the opening statement Jan Brewer had a Rose Mary Woods erasing the tapes moment on live television. Cue YouTube spoofs.
The one above is from Andy Cobb‘s twisted mind and the Second City Channel. A nearly identical and not quite as good spoof by The Full Ginsburg sent to us this morning.
“This contest is a cool deal,” Cobb tells FBLA. “Everybody shoots in LA but pretends it’s not even there–like LA’s supposed to just be a place that can pass for other areas of the country without ever probing what LA itself is about.”
He continues, “This contest is a great chance to do just that. And it’ll be a great chance for David Arquette and Eric Garcetti to enjoy the same film without it being raunchy hard-core foot fetish pornography. Don’t miss out, filmmaker-types.”

WaPo announced it’s canceling “Mouthpiece Theater.” Really? Did someone get the note the name sounds like a spoofy porn title? Or a nickname to the Tomkat Theater in WeHo? Get it – it’s sounds like a oral sex on a dude and how that can’t be AT ALL funny is the greatest mystery of this whole ordeal.

Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli killed the satirical video series Wednesday after harsh criticism of a joke about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which had prompted him to pull the latest episode from the paper’s Web site Friday night. The Post staffers who appeared in the videos, Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza, agreed with the decision and apologized in separate interviews.
Plus we like to think the the death (ahem) blow was made by Andy Cobb‘s brilliant parody we posted yesterday. The other version is the web series imploded under the weight of its own lameness. Either way.
