DEAN YELL, III

Even the State of the Union hasn’t shut this one down. They had a brilliant spoof of the Dean post-Iowa speech on Don Imus this morning modeled after the Bud Lite commericals. “Mister Third Place Democratic Finisher Whack Job.” Heh.

And Tim Blair has this:

And you know something? You know something? Not only are we going to Noosa Heads, we’re going to Andamooka and Werribee and the Bungle Bungles and Shepparton and Yass! We’re going to Camperdown and Kiama and Naracoorte! And we’re going to Wallaroo and Tennant Creek and Ulla Dulla and Albury! And then we’re going to Canberra. To take back Parliament House! YEEEAAARGH!!

He invites people to compose similar regional satires in his comments section. Among the submissions so far:

You know something, European Union? You know something? Not only are we going to Belgium, but we’re going to France and Germany!! We’re going to Sweden and Finland and Spain!! And then we’re going to The Hague!! To take back the International Court of Justice!! YEEEAAARGH!!!!

and

And you know something? You know something? Not only are we going to Kabul, we’re going to Kandahar and Islamabad and the Teheran and Bagdhad and Tikrit! We’re going to Basra and Mosul and Damascus! And we’re going to Cairo and Jerusalem and Beirut and Mecca! And then we’re going to Ryiadh. To take back the Holy Land! YEEEAAARGH!!

This one has legs.
