Blog Report Report: Three's Company

they're like blog twins.jpgIn today's episode of our occasional series, we invite a third Wonkette operative ("Eason Jordan," not his real name) to join "Joe Klein" and myself in live-mocking the CNN show that reads you the blogs. We were early, though, so we also mocked Bill Schneider.


Wonkette: first big question: HOW WILL THE PRESENCE OF JOHN KING CHANGE THE BLOG REPORT?

"Eason Jordan": it will make the camera more steady

"Eason Jordan": tho john king's tie is making my keyboard rattle.

"Joe Klein": oooh best segue ever coming up

"Joe Klein": from "the younger set" to the blogs

Wonkette: bill schneider: "one of those funky, trendy bowling alleys."

Wonkette: oh *those*

(4:16:10) Wonkette: first big question: HOW WILL THE PRESENCE OF JOHN KING CHANGE THE BLOG REPORT?

(4:16:25) "Eason Jordan": it will make the camera more steady

(4:16:35) "Eason Jordan": tho john king's tie is making my keyboard rattle.

(4:16:36) "Joe Klein": oooh best segue ever coming up

(4:16:43) "Joe Klein": from "the younger set" to the blogs

(4:17:00) Wonkette: bill schneider: "one of those funky, trendy bowling alleys."

(4:17:06) Wonkette: oh *those*

(4:17:13) "Eason Jordan": oh my

(4:17:17) "Eason Jordan": did he just say "way"

(4:17:21) Wonkette: yes yes

(4:17:22) "Eason Jordan": oh I need a drink

(4:17:24) Wonkette: that's so great

(4:17:27) "Joe Klein": okay, you're a cynic

(4:17:27) "Eason Jordan": i need a drink or to go bowling.

(4:17:42) Wonkette: these young people don't look funky or hip or trendy

(4:18:03) "Joe Klein": that's because they're in bethesda

(4:18:04) Wonkette: "it's like bowling?"

(4:18:05) "Eason Jordan": oh my

(4:18:10) "Eason Jordan": it's just like bowling

(4:18:10) "Joe Klein": BOWLING FOR ANSWERS

(4:18:13) Wonkette: "you control your money like you control your ball"?

(4:18:15) Wonkette: ?

(4:18:40) "Eason Jordan": how can it be riskier than bowling?

(4:18:48) "Eason Jordan": all those huge balls at high speeds

(4:18:55) "Joe Klein": maybe not the best time in the world to do a cheap bowling for columbine reference, what with the news out of minnesota and all

(4:19:02) Wonkette: OK HERE WE GO.

(4:19:07) "Eason Jordan": The Blog Sphere

(4:19:09) Wonkette: poor abbi

(4:19:11) "Joe Klein": commercial first

(4:19:13) "Eason Jordan": Abbi!

(4:19:15) Wonkette: she already looks terrified

(4:19:55) "Eason Jordan": The camera work is going to drive me insane

(4:19:57) "Eason Jordan": let me just say that now

(4:20:10) Wonkette: take your dramamine

(4:22:22) "Joe Klein": imagine how nervous poor abbi must get when they do that little teaser and say they're coming up next

(4:22:29) "Joe Klein": i feel like it'd be kinder to just cut to them without any warning

(4:23:01) Wonkette: they're going to do shaky cam while talking about schaivo

(4:23:09) Wonkette: that itself seems sort of cruel

(4:23:17) "Joe Klein": it'll be just like the shaky camerawork in the schiavo home videos

(4:23:30) Wonkette: oh but there we go with the highlighting

(4:23:40) Wonkette: you know, juan cole liveblogged the brookings thing today

(4:23:51) "Joe Klein": maybe someday CNN will cover us liveblogging the blog report

(4:23:56) Wonkette: and we then commented?

(4:24:09) Wonkette: i think the world would implode

(4:24:15) Wonkette: at least the blogging world

(4:24:19) Wonkette: so maybe it would be a good thing

(4:24:31) Wonkette: why are we reading blogs on tv again?

(4:24:44) Wonkette: when they're just spouting the same basic arguements as op-ed everywhere?

(4:24:49) "Eason Jordan": CNN has lost its mind says colleague

(4:25:02) "Eason Jordan": camera man in shot

(4:25:03) Wonkette: captains quarters ALSO liveblogged brookings

(4:25:09) Wonkette: yeah they do that all the time

(4:25:10) "Eason Jordan": yes busy guy

(4:25:12) Wonkette: makes it REAL

(4:25:27) "Eason Jordan": there he is massive elbow

(4:25:32) "Eason Jordan": if you know what i mean

(4:25:32) "Joe Klein": abbi does read very well

(4:25:41) Wonkette: abbi doesn't know what camera to look at

(4:25:42) "Eason Jordan": well the fucking guy keeps moving.

(4:25:55) Wonkette: yes, and i don't know what TV to look at

(4:25:56) "Joe Klein": this may have been the most professional blog report yet

(4:26:04) "Joe Klein": uh oh

(4:26:06) "Joe Klein": it's not all schiavo

(4:26:09) "Joe Klein": HERE COMES THE FUN

(4:26:12) "Eason Jordan": zzzzzzzzzzzz

(4:26:20) "Joe Klein": wait a second

(4:26:24) "Eason Jordan": brooks shoots fish in barrel

(4:26:24) "Joe Klein": david brooks isn't a fucking blogger

(4:26:29) Wonkette: noooo.

(4:26:36) "Eason Jordan": yes well blog means "anything we can put on a comptuer screen"

(4:26:38) "Joe Klein": NO YELLOW HIGHLIGHTING FOR THE MSM ABBI

(4:26:55) "Eason Jordan": I love yellow

(4:27:03) "Joe Klein": what was the best blog name fo teh day?

(4:27:11) "Joe Klein": they didn't pick one

(4:27:14) Wonkette: but that may be shortest yet!

(4:27:20) Wonkette: i think we are winning

(4:27:34) "Eason Jordan": someone should start a deathwatch

(4:27:43) "Eason Jordan": not since Take Five has there been a more illconsidered show

(4:27:43) Wonkette: a whole blog report blog

(4:27:47) Wonkette: yes yes indeed

(4:27:53) Wonkette: didn't take five have shaky cam?

(4:27:57) "Joe Klein": it did

(4:28:04) "Eason Jordan": no

(4:28:12) "Joe Klein": unfortunately the yellow highlighting technology hadn't been developed yet back then

(4:28:27) "Eason Jordan": that was among its many many problems
