Nancy Puss'n'Boots To Tweety: I'll Take "Looking Stupid" for $500"!

Well, they already wished Carly Fiorina to the cornfield, and I suspect whoever is the evil little Timmy for the Dead Campaign Express, has their gaze on Nancy Puss'n'Boots this morning.

It was brutal, unbelievable brutal, as Nancy Puss'n'Boots sat there, on 'Hardball' yesterday, with the idiot smile, perhaps with the knowledge that the cornfield was looming.

To be fair, to some extent, Tweety had a bee-in-his-bonnet, almost taking on the persona of one of those detectives in a 1950's B&W boiler, the bare light bulb hanging over a whimpering suspects' head.

Tweety was gnawing on the bone, with great gusto, over the latest edition of Mommy Moose idea, intellect, core base of knowledge over what job she is actually running for, and will serve if - oh boy, we'll need something close to Armageddon - she and the debunked Maverick get elected.

A deer in the headlights would have looked infinitely brighter that Nancy Puss'n'Boots, the mere act of running away would be an intellectual feat dwarfing Puss'n'Boots smiling clown act.

The more Tweety gnawed on this bone, the more Nancy Puss'n'Boots sat there, stuttering and muttering, becoming stupider and stupider by the second.

If they had been monitoring the show with those "People Meters", I believe the squiggly lines would have broke out laughing.

You would have seen a straight line, perhaps a bit up-and-down as the interview started, that pure Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha for the rest of it.

Tweety, so transfixed on his gnawing, his juicy bone, never broke from it, to fall on the floor in laughter himself.

This, from Mudflats today;

Chris Matthews is like a monkey with a gun. Sometimes he’s kind of wacky and unpredictable and you never feel quite sure of what he’s going to do. Other times, he takes careful aim and hits the bad guy right between the eyes. This time, Republican spokeswoman Nancy Pfotenhauer was the one with the big shiny bullseye right in the middle of her forehead. The subject of the conversation? How is it that Sarah Palin still does not know the job description of the Vice President? If you have not seen Matthews’ verbal flaying and subsequent evisceration of Palin via Nancy Pfotenhauer, you are in for a real treat. If you’ve already seen it once, watch it again. It’s almost a seismic event.
And Think Progress;

Today on MSNBC, Chris Matthews challenged McCain campaign spokeswoman Nancy Pfotenhauer to defend Palin’s comments, saying that in all his time in Washington, he has “never heard anybody” give an answer like Palin did. “Where does she get her civics?” asked Matthews. Pfotenhauer became visibly angry by the questioning and tried to change the subject. Matthews, however, refused to let her get away:
I don’t know why Randy Scheunemann or one of the smart people around her — I don’t know who else, Nicolle Wallace, somebody — ought to go to the candidate for the Vice President and give them a copy of the Constitution to read. That’s all it takes. It doesn’t take a lot of penetrating thought. Read the job description. […]

Somehow, in all these trips to Washington — through Neiman’s, and through Saks, and through everywhere else she stopped off, she never picked up a copy of the Constitution. It is a problem. It is a problem, Nancy, and you know it.
Here, and you'll have to imagine the trumpets and drumroll, Nancy Puss'n'Boots, on Hardball.

Hardball's Chris Matthews smacks down McCain campaign's Nancy Pfotenhauer about Sarah Palin. EPIC PFAIL!

Now, it should have occurred to Puss'n'Boots, the video of Mommy Moose's answer to a third-grader's question was all over the World Wide Web, to concede the point, and say something like "Yes, Chris, I agree it was a bad answer" or "She embellished a bit too much".

But it seems the Dead Campaign Express isn't ready - yet - to throw The Wasilla Whiz Kid under the bus.

At least, the top-of-the-ticket, Stumblin' Bumblin' John McKKKain isn't

McCain: Palin ‘Most Qualified’ VP Nominee in Recent Memory
My question is, ‘What’s their problem?’ She is the most popular governor in America…

Because she’s not known, or she hasn’t been to a Georgetown cocktail party, or maybe some in Manhattan — I think she’s the most qualified of any that who has run recently for vice president, to tell you the truth. [Emphasis added.]

It's getting harder-and-harder to riff on these people, they're doing such a fantastic job of making fun of themselves, albeit, unknowingly.
