Here I am joined on my couch by my two puppies - a 70lb Great Pyrenees mix and a 7 lb chihuahua. Neither were super impressed by any coverage of the elections. They just want to know who will build more dog parks and anyone with a "bacon" for all policy would instantly win their hearts.
My two cats were no where to be seen...possibly plotting to take over the world. I think I heard one mutter "doesn't matter who those pink hairless apes choose...operation Continual Disdain goes on as planned."
A stoic Anderson Cooper stares confidently at the talk of political dealings. Oh, He's so stoic.
And make sure to notice the MASSIVE map of the U.S. that is on their wildly interactive MASSIVE monitor behind them.
And then notice all of the information below them and to the sides. A metric ass-ton of information that changed every second and only caused them to postulate on and on.
Oh, those blue eyes, so dreamy.
And then, the Election coverage I was really waiting for finally started. I had already seen so much just waiting for satire to rough it up a little bit and my boys over on the Daily Show did not disappoint!
All of the members of the Best F#@&ing News Team on Television were out tonight and in grand form.
Now, this coverage started at 11 and it was really close to having the winner announced, so I did flip back and forth a little bit, but it just felt so good to hear Jon Stewart announce the winner - an odd moment of a comedian/king of mockery delivering to us real and important NEWS.
Of course they had a bit from Obama and his Anger Translator, Luthor.
