Funniest Blog Post Ever

I’m going to nominate James Wolcott’s post over at Vanity Fair for funniest ever. Read the whole thing here. For my money, Wolcott is the most entertaining writer in the blogosphere. In this post, Wolcott describes the implosion of the righty bloggers as they come to grips with the possibility of an Obama presidency. Or, as Wolcott says:

It’s been quite an inglorious spectacle, watching these wracked souls lose their sh*t as they swing from the belfry.

Wolcott later adds:

It’s one of the richer ironies of this election season that the conservative bloggers disparage Obama as a phony lightweight, a glib opportunist, a suave vessel of empty eloquence, yet endow him with the sinister strength to bend America to his socialist will and fog men’s minds.

I encourage you to read the whole thing. There are some R-rated right wing rants regarding Obama that you have to read to believe (Teaser: Beneath Obama’s cool persona lies a megalomaniac…graphic descriptions ensue comparing Obama to Stalin, Saddam, and Pol Pot.)

Priceless.

Wolcott ends the piece with this pithy smack-down:

And to think they called us “sore losers” in 2000! They haven’t even lost yet and they’re already blaming the victor, acting all butch and making with the big talk about stocking up on gold and ammo as they hole up in the shag-carpeted panic room and let their whiskers grow. They can’t face the fact that conservatism has epically failed; this is their way of pouting and refusing to come out and play, leaving everybody else to deal with the ruin left behind.

PS. Honorable mention to an Internet classic “Playing Poker With Dick Cheney.”
