Last night on The Countdown with Keith Olbermann, John Cleese pretty much lost his shit to one of the only comedy groups funnier than Monty Python… the McCain campaign.
And he introduced me to my new favorite word…

Monty Python's John Cleese gives his thoughts on the new "funniest Palin"…
"It's like a nice looking parrot. Because the parrot speaks beautifully and kinda says, "Aw shucks!" every now and again, but doesn't really have any understanding of the words it's producing, even though it's producing them very accurately…
"I'm sorry, Michael Palin, to say you're not the funniest Palin anymore. But you're not."

Last night, on The Countdown, Keith Olbermann recited a special poem for Sean Hannity that was written by none other than Monthy Python's John Cleese…
Ode to Sean Hannity
by John Cleese
Oozing with vanity
Plump as a manatee
Fox Noise insanity
You're a profanity
You can see Olbermann's reading here on MSNBC's site (at about the 2:40 mark).
You know, it's kinda funny. Just the other day, I wrote a poem for Sean Hannity, too. It just came to me while I was watching Fox News after the last debate…
Poem for Sean Hannity
by Dennis DiClaudio
Hey, Sean Hannity
Mine's got more of a beatnik feel to it.
Cleese's is better.
Update: Your poems are already waaaay better than mine, so I'm gonna open this up. Drop your own Hannity-inspired poems in the comments, and I'll pick out a few of my favorites to post. Thanks.
