Pundit Brawl by ayarane Pundit Brawl by ayarane
When the guest list for the 2009 White House Correspondents Dinner was released, the mention of both Keith Olbermann and Bill O'Reilly, well... let's just say that it gave my motivation to draw a gigantic shot in the arm.

Now, you know my thing about how in a perfect world, all major conflicts (including the long-standing feud between Olbermann and O'Reilly) would be solved with some Super Smash Bros. And up until that last minute note about Sarah Palin dropping out of the dinner, there TOTALLY could have been Obama v. Palin rematch action. Nonetheless, in my extremely weird imagination, President Obama lends the Oval Office and use of his Wii so that this pundit pithiness can be settled in EPIC BRAWL!

And, just because, some special guests from not only our government, but also MSNBC and Fox News as part of the cheer squads for Team Keith and Team Bill-O. (I make no excuses or apologies as to who I favor here, but you knew that already.)

Let's assume, again, that this is a 2vs2 stock match.

Team Keith:
- President Obama as Keith's partner, though unfortunately he got eliminated but still finds the whole thing wildly amusing.
- Sec. Hillary Clinton, Chris Matthews and VP Joe Biden laugh it up. It's all in good fun!

Team Bill-O:
- Gov. Sarah Palin as Bill-O's partner, she also got eliminated. "C'mon Bill, you can still take him!"
- Glenn Beck, however, foresees the end of the world if his side loses. This is even enough to spook Hannity in the corner over there.

Just like with the previous Senator Brawl, I leave things like character selection and such to your imagination. Yes, very weird considering that this is supposed to be about people playing Super Smash Bros., but it is much more fun this way, and also I don't have to deal with being called out over my picks.

...well, except one. Keith would totally pick up Kirby. >_>;

This is so funny! Obama looks like he's crapping his pants.

I would beat these two in Call of Duty, and Super Smash Bros. Beat their asses as Link.

I would outlive them in COD: Zombies.

Just revisited this piece. Sarah Palin on the Fox guys' team was actually a very prophetic movie.

Love your pundit work! MSNBC LOVE!

...oh yeah, I didn't even think about that until now. Haha!

I still have Episode 5 to do (New Super Mario Bros. Wii, except this time everyone is literally inside the game with Dan Patrick and Keith as Mario and Luigi and Bill-O as one of the Toads that Keith's about to throw). Maybe Palin would make a good Peach... albeit unaware of Rachel Maddow sneaking up behind her... >:3

Not gonna lie, I love Glenn's face. That is priceless. XD

LMAO! Awesome artwork. Love the idea of political pundits settling their issues through SSBB. With the way most pundits act (both MSNBC and FOX), it would make sense to settle childish disputs through childish games.

Especially love the expressions on Beck and Hannity's face. And way to make Palin look smexy.

Keep up the good work. ;)
abnerdwight Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2009
what he says (Palin is smexy)
CodyMacArthurFett Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2009
Makes sense that Mr. O wouldn't be doing too well at SSBB. After all, the FNC crew are X-Box guys. (Seriously, you can even see an X-Box 360 as part of their studio equipment every time The Live Desk is on.) Pop some Halo in there and then we'll see who cleans who's clock.

I did not know that. Interesting.

Using the Wii for Pundit Games gives me a lot more flexibility in hilarity, though. There's only so much you can do with a 360 or PS3 controller aside from smacking someone with it, hehe.

Awesome. Awww, political pundits are so adorable.

Why, that could well be a photorealistic Chris Matthews!

He's defined by that laugh. XD-face forever!
XxAlmightyStanxX Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2009
This makes my heart smile! <3

You are a totally wonderful and amazing person for drawing this. Especially how you kept the ';pundit politics' light-hearted and fun for both sides. You deserve a metal for this. You made my day. :D

also "Beck, however, foresees the end of the world if his side loses" <---LMFAO!
ayarane Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm normally REALLY averse to air my political views (being a naughty liberal and all) but... sometimes I can't help it. Pundit Brawl and my other recent political arts have made me really like drawing political people being silly.

this is amazing!
SpearHawk Featured By Owner May 13, 2009
Now that's funny! *big LOL at Becky going ballistic*
