Absolutely everyone wants to be an MC

Someone please enlighten me: just what…in the hell…is this?
As the Washington Post blog tells us:

Rove, well aware that these affairs are overly produced, became part of the headline entertainment at last night’s annual Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association dinner. He was cajoled on stage by the comedians from the ABC show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” And he flubbed his first line.
The improv skit quickly turned from random and uncomfortably weird to riotous when Mochrie and Sherwood led Rove in a rap song in which Rove played a rapper — “M.C. Rove” — and danced and hopped around on stage. He got really into it, at one point pulling out his cell phone and blackberry, taking multi-tasking to new heights.

USA Today has their take on it, complete with the priceless call-and-response:
“What’s your name?”
“I’m M.C. Rove.”
You’ll just have to see the video.

  1. what i’d like to know is who the african american gentleman in the background is and why he’s dancing and smiling instead of reeling in shock and horror.

  2. He’s smiling because he’s thinking “Now no one will ever take the Rebpublicans seriously ever again! And also, that was some great acid.”

  3. Oh, great. Yet another reason to be embarassed (“mortified” might be a better term) by the Bush administration. Will someone please lock Karl Rove in a closet until after the next election?

  4. The first thing I said when I saw this last night was “gee, shouldn’t they have blackface on? Because that would really underscore how un-self-aware they are and how creepy this is.”
