Best Mob in the World



(aka "Olbermanga Daioh")

I think the last time I did a mob scene this big was... En Masse? Though, this time everyone is in varying states of super-deformity (e.g. chibified), which surely made coloring a lot easier.

SO! It's been established that I like MSNBC way, WAY too much than should be legal. I long crossed that line when I drew Keith Olbermann pwning Bill O'Reilly in Super Smash Bros., and Rachel Maddow wiping the floor with Gretchen Carlson in Mario Kart Wii (and, trust me, there is plenty more to come in Pundit Games!)... and this is ignoring the gateway piece of Keith, Rachel and Chris Matthews stealing the presidential limo for a joyride. Oh man. Now we have not just those three and new BFF Ed Schultz, they decided to bring just about all their friends and pile into what I call the "Nondescript Imaginary White Room" that MSNBC uses for their commercials for a gigantic group shot. If they host a show, or appear often enough that they might as well, they're in here.

...and this note is already too long as is. :P

I would think everyone is recognizable enough! (Oh, the amount of profile/Twitter-diving I did to pull up reference photos for color-matching.) Nonetheless, time to do some name-dropping!

Back (from right, the rows are kind of in an arc): Willie Geist, Dylan Ratigan, Contessa Brewer, Christina Brown, Pat Buchanan, Lawrence O'Donnell
Middle: Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, Ed Schultz, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Kent Jones
Front: Andrea Mitchell, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, David Shuster, Tamron Hall

...ooh, a kitty!

As for that "Olbermanga Daioh" alt title... let me put it this way: the present absurdity of the political pundit scene would lend itself PERFECTLY to a parody of Azumanga Daioh. Think about this one!

Re: paper bag--
in a particular sector of Olbermann fandom, this is somewhat of an accidental meme... thing; I made a gag about how David Shuster should wear a paper bag with Keith Olbermann's face cheaply drawn on it when guest-hosting for Countdown. And it kinda stuck XD That's not to say that it wouldn't be the best thing EVER if it really did happen... nope...
