Criquet – Cenk Uygur


CTGirl – Ron Fournier


Daisydem – Any BuzzFeed Person


Desertflower – Boehner

“Where’s the wine? I know it’s early, but it’s 5 o’ clock SOMEWHERE! If I start early, that means that by 10am, when I start work (HA! We CALL it work, but it’s just playtime…how hard is it to be saying no all the time and act like an ass?) I’ll be a buzzed dick already! Nancy gets so pissed because she’s all about work and getting stuff done… “Doing the people’s business!”….But until I get that phone call from my Bros…..so I know what the hell I’m gonna say NO to today, well….I just sit back in my office and smoke my smokes and chug some grapes. I get PAID for this shit! Ain’t America great!!!”


DonnaDem4 – Ron Paul

“So what if I’m a dried up old fart y’all still want to Reclaim the Republic & Restore the Constitution don’t cha?.

And..And..For a donation of $10 or more a month, you will become a member of our Patriot Giving Club! Give it up chumps…give it up.”


Dotster – Rand Paul

“Wikipedia, here I come, have a speech to give at that bastion of superb higher learning, Liberty University – Jerry Falwell was So Cute and SMART! Need to start assembling my death panels for short, fat and dumb people – so I can scare the dummies at my speech that they will soon be going POOF!”

Hopefruit – Chuck Todd

“Hey John Boehner, Chuck Todd here, and the great news is that you can drink, smoke and tan all day, because the polls are in the Republicans’ favor – it appears, just by looking at the soaring level of enthusiasm for Republicans right now. People I’ve spoken to on the Republican side of the aisle tell me that they have NEVER been so fired up, it’s as if someone just lit a HUGE gasoline tank beneath them….

More on that later.”


HZ – Eric Cantor

“Eric Cantor here: Mr. President, we will never get out of debt if you keep this habit of giving away more government candy to little children. This teaches them that they can just come to the White House and get candy every year on the last day in Oct. Please Mr. President, this just cannot continue to occur. These kids need jobs. Where are the jobs, Mr. President? Where are the jobs, Mr. President?”


Isonprize – Tweety


J O’Boomer – Joan Walsh Andrea Greenspan Mitchell

“Somehow last night I traded via Arapaho and volunteered to be Andrea Mitchell. And I’m quite ready, if I do say so myself.”


Jackie 4 Obama – Chris Christie

“I have mastered the art of lying with a straight face. The secret is my bravado. People think I walk on water but the truth is that fat floats. It is all smoke and mirrors. I figure I will stay as Governor just long enough before my constituents figure out how I have screwed them and then resign to run for President.”


Jackiegrumbacher – Ann Coulter

“Watched reruns of that marvelous Sebelius’ hearing last night. I just love to see Liberal women abused by our guys–and didn’t they look so cute with all that spittle on their mouths. Wish she had cried though. Bummer. Slept in late today–the crypt was so comfy after the long night of hearing replays. I’m going to make an appearance at some TOAD site today, so told Igor to get the black dress ready–I hate it when he complains about the shine on the seat. He doesn’t realize how men drool over that e…l…o…n…g…a…t…e….d look of mine. I see the way they stare, especially at my neck. And the women are always so in awe of my looks, their jaws drop. Eat your hearts out, Beyotches. I’ve always said that Liberal women are ugly, so imagine the reaction to my loveliness from those Toad men. I’ll have to scoop them off the floor. Just a little touch up on the roots and I’ll be good to go. Vlad called to say our dinner will be late tonight; I can’t wait. If there’s one man who does look longingly at my neck, it’s Vlad. Ta.”


Japa21 – Wolf Blitzer

“Wolf Blitzer here to report on the latest ACA (AKA Obamacare) fiasco. We have been informed by very reliable sources that the cause of the ACA problems is a man, reported to be of dark skin coloration, whereabouts currently unknown (What do you mean it might be caused by GOP resisting setting up state exchanges, I can’t say that on the air). Excuse me, I was just informed that the suspect has been noticed being driven around in a large vehicle called “The Beast”. We are working hard to get more identification of this individual. (I told you I can’t say anything bad about the GOP on the air so stop pestering me). Excuse the interruption, my producer was trying to pass on information to me but it is not verified so I cannot and will not give you information that has not been verified to an absolute degree. After all, I am an important journalist.

I will be back in a moment to discuss the really important news of the day and answer the all important question: What will Miley Cyrus do next to cause her father to recoil in shame?”

“….. well if that’s the way it is…but don’t take my word as gospel…it might need to be corrected in another minute or two…I mean this is what I know now but what I know now may not be what I know ten minutes from now…but I can definitely report that I don’t know what the Hell I am talking about. That certainty should not change anytime soon.”


JER – Chris Hayes’ bike

Bike: [Talking to self] Of all the bicycles in all the towns in all the world, he chooses me.

Chrissy: You know, Bike, I have many a friend in this town, but somehow, just because you despise me, you are the only one I trust.

Chrissy: What kind of man is POTUS?

Bike: Oh, he’s just like any other man, only so much more so.

Bike: Might as well be frank, Chrissy, it would take a miracle to get you high ratings on MSNBC, and the GOP baggers have outlawed miracles.

Chrissy: Well, they don’t know me.

Bike: Things are never so bad they that can’t be made worse. Just look at your show. You owe the public better than that.

Chrissy: That’s your opinion. The only thing that I owe the public is a good performance.

Bike: A week old hot dog in the garbage can is better than your show.

Chrissy: I take offense… Remember, you are only made out of metal.

Bike: Here’s looking at you kid. I’m outta here.

Chrissy: Okay. Don’t leave. We can work this out.

“Welcome to “Up With Chris”, with me, uber-geeky-cute Chris Hayes. On today’s show: Glenn Greenwald (my favorite Man in Rio) is on to discuss how President Obama personally reads every sext he sends to his husband throughout the day. For the second segment, we stay with Glenn as we discuss how President Obama’s ultimate goal is to replace every US soldier (who are not heroes) with drones which will hover over Glenn’s condo and take pictures as he and his husband canoodle. For the final segment, Joan Walsh will join Glenn and I to discuss how African Americans just don’t know what’s good for them. Coming right up!”

swbluega – Van Jones

“Van Jones checking in…

You know, I love this president and I respect this president…

…but I gotta say, there’s some leadership in Congress that’s gonna make the 2016 Presidential elections a serious contest.

For instance…Rand Paul. Now, he’s a civil rights villain, I’ll admit. But when it comes to civil liberties? Now that’s where he’s a champion. That 13 hour filibuster he did about using aerial drones to kill Americans citizen on U.S. soil…a thing of beauty. He asked the tough questions that Liberals should be asking. Yes sir, that Rand Paul used the filibuster the way it was supposed to be used. Don’t know how much of it was plagiarized from Wikipedia, but hey, that’s not the point.

And Ted Cruz? Man oh man! Now there’s something I admire about that guy. He took bold action for something he believed in. Shutting down the government!?!?!?!?!? Can you say AUDACITY? Every person I admire and consider to be a hero is willing to take bold action, just like Senator Cruz did. That guy was able to rally congressmen IN THE OTHER CHAMBER! He was able to stall a vote by reading “Green Eggs and Ham!” That’s leadership! So what if it cost 24 billion dollars? So what if he is calling it Obama’s shutdown? Not every leader takes credit for their work!

Yeah, 2016 is going to be very interesting. If either of these guys win the Republican primary, they are going to give the Democratic challenger a run for their money.

Keep it GREEN!”

You know what? I’m just going to get on my Bush Is The President Ever plane and go down to Ohio to count the votes myself. Barack Obama did not win Ohio. What kind of funky math is this? What kind of witchcraft is this? The votes are still being counted.

Why are you calling Ohio for Barack Obama? WHY ARE YOU CALLING OHIO FOR BARACK OBAMA? Megyn? Stop that. Megyn, stop calling Ohio for Pres. Obama.

Why is Barack Obama having a second inauguration? Ohio is still counting votes for Mitt Romney. OMG….what is happening? Ohio is still being counted. Mitt Romney is winning!!!! Stop swearing in Barack Obama.

Oh God…..I need a lollipop.”

    Break the bottle of champagne….. a new TOD tradition has been born! A little advice for your non TOD friends/family 🙂

    It’s Halloween, and you’re probably hours away from going out and having a blast in a costume of your choice. And we hope you have fun. After all, Halloween is the one time of the year when adults have blanket permission to act out in public — playing pranks, eating candy, wearing costumes and generally letting their inner kid-id run wild — without fear of being treated like they’re total idiots.

    Unless, of course, they’re actually being total idiots. Which is what happens when Pumpkin Day revelers do the dress-up thing terribly, terribly wrong, and turn a ritual that should be about flying your fanboy/fangirl colors at full mast into a horrifying, offensive, racist mess.

      Saw some tweet the other day that speculated that your (Ezra’s) White House contacts left after the first term, which might explain your recent hounding of our President for a transitional problem, not a governing or policy challenge.

      No doubt your ego was massively stroked by this short video, which names you as one of POTUS’ faves. (But as I responded to HF2 yesterday, I think @TVietor08 and @JonFavs were referring to the first term POTUS, not his current favs):

    Just days after expressing outrage over reports of widespread surveillance of foreign leaders by the National Security Agency, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) pushed through the Senate Intelligence Committee on an 11-4 vote a bill that enshrines the bulk collection of Americans’ phone call records into law, and expands the agency’s authority to track foreign nationals who enter the United States.

      Hello Mr. Kos, As an MSNBC contributor, I lurk on your site and read all the great diaries on the rec list – specifically the ones which address the problems of the current administration, the lack of enthusiasm, and the plummeting approval numbers of this President. I hope to have you on for an exclusive interview to let us know what exactly about this administration that bothers the American people, and why there is such a stubborn enthusiasm gap that won’t go away.

      Chuck Todd.

      • 35 57andfemale
        October 31, 2013 at 5:40 pm

        I await your invitation. Unenthusiastically, of course, because I am overwhelmed with unenthusiasm. If only PBO would do exactly what I say the world would be a Perfect Place.

        Just say yes to peace instead of war and all will be well. Until, of course PBO gets Syria to dismantle their chemical weapons without a shot but that wasn’t soon enough or….something. After all, we can’t let progress be the enemy of principle, of can we?

        Besides, I heard from the street singer 7 1/2 blocks from the White House who knew the landscaper whose best friend is the Assistant to the ….someone that PBO hesitated for about thirty seconds before formulating Syrian policy. How unengaged he is. Okay, he may have stirred his coffee and taken a swig, but that’s no excuse.

        So let’s get together, Chuck, and discuss the gross failings of this President, for whom I have no enthusiasm, just like all the American people.

    • October 31, 2013 at 5:44 pm

      Hey Markos…Van Jones here…

      About those drones…we really need to be concerned about the government being able to use drones to kill U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. I don’t think THIS president would abuse that kind of authority (cause I love this president and I respect this president). But the NEXT president might. So we’ve got to be vigilant and StandWithRand. Cause he’s the champion of civil liberties.

      Keep it GREEN!

              Well, I’ve got fantastic news for you Mr. President. David Gregory announced that you will be on his Sunday “I heart the GOP” show, otherwise known as Meet the Press. I’m not lying, Mr. President -governor.

    Waaaaaaaaaaa….Hopefruit…No costume for me??? Ok…I will just be one of those random pundits they drag from under the rock to bring on TV and blame Obama for everything! (No disrespect for my President, but that’s how the classify him ALL.THE.TIME)!

  21. October 31, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I wasn’t assigned a character to be for the TOD Halloween party either, so I’ll be a famous person from my state – Chuckles Grassley! Then I get to say things like “I’m in WARSHINGTON” and “death panels for Grandma” and “hey, I hit a deer” and “court packing”.

    Karl Rove here. Would just like to say a big thank you to Glenn Greenwald for being a friend of the Bushes and the Kochs. You’re doing fantastic, friend.

    Also, I will soon finish counting all the votes in Ohio, just in time for Mitt Romney to be sworn in as POTUS in 20200000000.

    This is Chuck Todd, live reporting from the WH Halloween trick or treat.

    Mrs Obama and First Grandma are dressed up for the event, but President Obama isn’t. I’m not sure what that means, but it can’t be anything good. In fact, senior WH officials I’ve spoken to tell me that the President doesn’t care about anything these days. It speaks to the lack of enthusiasm that I’ve been referencing since way back in 2011. I will have an update on the event later!

    Wolf Blitzer here again. We have breaking news, although I have to tell you I am skeptical about this, but what the Hell, they write, I read.

    In Northwest Suburban Chicago there is a house where, despite Trick or Treating hours having been in effect almost 2 hours, not one kid has shown up yet.

    I may have to send my friend Mark Knoller over there to count how much candy is left, assuming he doesn’t eat it all.

DONATE….. I need to keep on the web cause no one will have me on cable.

    Wolf Blitzer with a Special Report from the Situation Room. Some in Washington (we believe it originated with O’Reilly at Fox, but it may have been Glenn Beck, both of whom are reliable sources) suggest that the WH celebration of Halloween is heavily tilted toward the satanic costumery. Suggestions have been made that this is just the opening salvo in the year’s War on Christmas and the attempt to wipe out Christianity in this country. Now again, this is just something that has been mentioned, and we will let the viewer determine the credibility of this. But as you do, remember this is CNN The Most Trusted Name in News would we lie to you?

      Wolf, this is going to be a huge, HUGE problem for this administration. In fact, WH officials I’ve spoken to tell me that the President will spend the better half of next year defending the costumes and sacrilegious imagery, and this is really not something he wants to be doing over the next few months, when he has to worry about immigration reform, Obamacare, and the government shutdown deadline.

      This could really impact his polling, and the enthusiasm for the Democrats in midterms. Thanks for bringing this exclusive to us, and we will have some updates later!

      How are the workouts coming along Mr. Ryan? We hope to do an MSNBC special feature about you, titled “Keeping Fit with Paul Ryan.” I guarantee you, it will blow Michelle Obama’s “let’s move” campaign out of the water. We will then have some polling data to share with everyone.

    [Straight from the horse’s mouth (or his twitter feed), I think he forgot to count each. Also, didn’t I tell you earlier he was peeved he didn’t get any treats from yesterday’s harvest. I was right. 😉 ]

    (InaneKnoller) WH Treats tonight for Trick-or-Treaters will include: Box of WH M&Ms, Beans, WH Sweet Dough Butter Cookies; Dried Fruit.
    Even the dried fruit better than a head of cabbage or kale from the vegetable garden, harvested yesterday.

    Now if only PBO could listen and take care of the civil liberties and not be like Bush – by using this celebration these days of trick and treating to “collect the information” on the kids he has invited;

    HRC would certainly have done better
