Comedians Mock WaPo Pundit Contest (VIDEO)

Remember about three weeks ago, how the Washington Post TOTALLY CHANGED THIS ONLINE PUNDIT GAME by announcing that they were going to have a bonkers contest to determine America's Next Top Pundit, on the internet? Well today is you last day to enter! Do it! Do it now! Do it because Public Service Administration's Josh Funk and Andy Cobb -- last seen explaining the awesome journalistic value of Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza's "Mouthpiece Theatre" -- build an excellent case for it!


For my part, it is my dearest hope that many of the people who have entered this contest have done so because they would like to pull off a Yes Men-style media hack, in which they attempt to win the contest for the sole purpose of determining just how much ridiculous, howling misinformation Fred Hiatt is willing to stamp the WaPo brand upon. If you have entered this contest with this sort of thing in mind, good luck to you, and trust me, I want to hear all about it. If you've not yet entered the contest, do it now, and get ready to get DICKWHISPERED.
