  • Eugene Mirman Unveils His Tea Party Slogans at Bonnaroo

    From the CC Insider

    From "Don't Tread on Me" to "No Taxation Without Representation," the original Tea Partiers had some strong slogans for their era, but they lack the pizazz and punch to catch on in today's political landscape. Luckily for fringe conservatives, Eugene Mirman is more than happy to contribute some new slogans fit for Generation-Sext.

    You can see more videos from the webcast on the CC Live @Bonnaroo Comedy Tent site.

  • Eugene Mirman's Liveblog: Americans Are Furious, But Also Indifferent

    11:59pm EST

    It's been a long, very predictable night. Some people lost, some people won. In the end, I think we all know that there are new people to make fun of and old people to also make fun of. Some folks might think that my blogging was liberal, but if there was a candidate who was a Democrat who got nominated by a Coffee themed party, maybe a Juan Valdez inspired green movement, I would have gladly teased them. Here is hoping that next election there are people so left of center claiming they aren't Mages that I can stick it to them and appease the center-right (hard core neo-cons LOVE Mages – it's their big weakness). Also, I guess I was wrong about Nevada. I guess that's the price I pay for guessing with nothing but polls to guide me. Also, without being mean, Sharron Angle was a pretty extreme candidate, according to rape victims and people who appreciate America's separation of church and laundry. I mean state. I always forget what America separates and it's church and state. I still can't believe that a state that condones prostitution and gambling wouldn't elect the most conservative lady running for office in America. Weird. Maybe next time?

    11:38pm EST

    I have always wondered how libertarians compromise and I will soon find out. Maybe they will get to rename roads "Taxways?" Also, I hope they get rid of the EPA and change it to the "Department of Uh-oh, oops spill."

    11:22pm EST

    The good news from this election is that C-SPAN will probably be fun to watch. It will be like a straight-to-cable Steven Seagal movie. Except instead of some weird form of karate, we will get to see people using the some weird form of the Constitution to kick ass.

    10:44pm EST

    It's too bad that this election is ending without anyone claiming Carl Paladino was a tranny. I guess this is what it feels like to put all your energy into something and see it disappear.

    10:32 EST

    Taking this election as a mandate is a lot like a drunk guy taking making out with a drunk lady at a bar at closing time as a mandate. It is, but just for an hour or so.

    10:13pm EST

    Hopefully after the election, neither party will pass laws and will instead pass pledges. Whoever passes the best pledge will get to pledge again in 2012!

    10:08pm EST

    I will now call the most watched election of this year: Nevada. Obviously it is insane to compare any modern US politician to Hitler, especially if they’ve been falsely accused of being a Scientologist and show no obvious signs of wanting to eradicate Jews or take over Europe. However, it is worth pointing out that when Hitler came to power, Germany had a 30% unemployment rate. Since Nevada has a 15% unemployment rate, it is then fair to say that Sharron Angle is not Hitler, she is simply 50% Hitler. Enjoy your new Senator, Nevada.

    9:50pm EST

    Democrats still have a chance if they can go back in time and make the same mistakes again.

    9:48pm EST

    I hope at least one candidate who wins, be it Democrat or Republican, for their speech has the courage to admit, "Haha! I tricked you! Go fuck yourselves!"

    9:33pm EST

    Congratulations to Marco Rubio on being America's sexiest new senator (I am assuming John Edwards is not allowed to just come back and start passing laws).

    9:28pm EST

    Every midterm election the party in control looses seats and every time people on television go apeshit. That is the true sign of a healthy democracy! Also, the limited number of stabbings at polling stations. Those two things are the signs of a healthy democracy.

    9:25pm EST

    Republicans take control of the House! Sadly for them, their first act will be to disband the House, leaving control of legislature in the hands of VH1 executives. Get ready for a new and naughty government!

  • Eugene Mirman's LiveBlog: Predictions!

    8:59pm EST

    I bet most people today don’t remember when Dan Rather had to hand paint a map of the US to show us which way a district voted.

    8:47pm EST

    I hope Michael Steele’s mustache runs for president in 2012.

    8:21pm EST

    I promise not to “slut-shame” anyone, except possibly Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino — whose dick is so “flippity-floppity” (who am I quoting?), that some orthodox rabbis aren’t sure where Carl would stand on this Provincetown Halloween party:

    Also, I will now call the New York Governortorialajdfdisojfoas election. The winner is Andrew Cuomooo (that would have been a fun costume idea — a cow version of our future governor?)

    8:03pm EST

    The irony of the Delaware senate race is that Chris Coons is a warlock. That’s the secret of politics: do it, but never deny it.

    7:48pm EST

    Breaking news! John King is probably a different person from Anderson Cooper. Look!

    7:46pm EST

    If you turn on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit right now, not-surprisingly, tonight’s victim is the Democrats.

    7:26pm EST

    I would like to make one thing clear — I am not claiming these are my projected winners — I am claiming they have won. How? Well, mostly, I don’t mind being wrong. But I am not using the same complicated analysis that Wolf Blitzer and his clean-shaven friend are. I am using old-fashioned America “Super Guessing.” And “Super Guessing” is never wrong. Here are a few more predictions:

    New Mexico — Ben Ray Lujan! Congrats! I’ve always said it takes three names to win, and Ben Ray Lujan proves it. Sorry, Tom Mullins. You ran a good campaign (probably).

    Wisconsin — A surprise write-in winner! It’s Adrian Brody! (That’s not true, the winner is Ron Johnson).

    Washington — Patty Murray! Ha ha! More of the same, suckers!

    7:04pm EST

    Hello fellow Americans (and sneaky, bored Canadians)!
    It’s time to analyze the midterm election! As the night continues, you’ll quickly realize I don’t have a degree in political science, nor can I read, and my writing is often limited to 23 of the 26 letters of our wonderful alphabet.

    Even though I do not have endless television monitors, researchers, mustacheod middle-aged colleagues, and green screened backdrop of the capitol — I do have one thing that Fox, MSNBC, CNN and the major networks don’t have — a gun bottle full of tequila.

    So, with that bottle and the confidence to guesstimate, before polls have closed, I will call the following elections before any of my colleagues do:

    Kentucky — Rand Paul wins!!!! Do more Department of Education! Yey! No school tomorrow!

    California — Barbra Boxer!

    Florida — Marco Rubio!

    New York City Comptroller is… Harry Wilson!

    Okay. I will be calling elections tonight either way before they happen, or so far after the fact that it will seem like I do not understand how time works.
