Feathered Fawlty for Most Obsequious Pundit
After Salon’s Alex Pareene ran the board last month, the Judges strongly considered just dropping this category and pretending like it never existed. But after the Management reminded them they were being paid by the unit, they bravely forged ahead. With a twist.
This year’s competition is thus a team sport. Fox & Friends, featuring the Faux Ditz (Oxford!) and the Real Ditz (Doocy!) may telegraph every GOP talking point, but accomplishes its mission with a panache that must be the highlight of every Daily Show intern’s day. Facing them at center field is the Washington Post Editorial Page, your source for the best in Torture Apologists.
And the winner is…
The Washington Post. Remember their work on the Pentagon Papers and Watergate? Neither do they.
