Video: Anchorman, HamNation style

She told me she wanted to be a vlogger but I thought she was kidding. I even wrote it down in my diary: “Mary Katharine had a very funny joke today.” I laughed at it later that night.

Yet here she is.

She’s like a miniature Buddha covered with hair. Click the image to watch.

She’s cute but she needs to speak just a tad slower and work on her diction.

Labamigo on March 16, 2007 at 12:23 PM

Love the pouty/serious look at the end of the first bit.
Never realized how much the Uberdouch looks like the muppet at the end though.

Dang, a couple months ago, everyone was telling me to speed up. Heh. I think I’ll just go back and forth between takes.

marykatharine on March 16, 2007 at 12:30 PM

. I even wrote it down in my diary: “Mary Katharine had a very funny joke today.”

This is sad on sooo many levels :P

lorien1973 on March 16, 2007 at 12:38 PM

Thanks, I needed a laugh!
I think Gonzo’s after your job..

Wyrd on March 16, 2007 at 12:40 PM

That was probably a bit “hard hitting” for the Dems.

duff65 on March 16, 2007 at 12:40 PM

Allah i dont know whether you have seen this at Instapundit or not but Kos endorsed Fred Thompson yesterday. Seriously. You need to read his post. Well the Update anyway.

amish on March 16, 2007 at 12:41 PM

Hmmm… she could be on to somthing…

Kermit is the epitome of a Green commentator.

Big Bird?? Just as Yellow as the Dems in Congress…

But you have to get rid of Miss Piggy, CAIR will be all over ya if ya don’t….

Romeo13 on March 16, 2007 at 12:44 PM

I hope Miss Piggy isn’t fired for what she said. I would repeat it but I dont want to be banned.

infidel on March 16, 2007 at 12:46 PM

I’ll take this screencap on HA’s main page over The Rosie Trapper Keeper any day of the week!!!!

Dave Shay on March 16, 2007 at 12:47 PM

“For Townhall dot com… I’m Mary Katherine Ham?”

Wha–? Who put a question mark in the teleprompter?!

ScottMcC on March 16, 2007 at 12:49 PM

I can forive MKH for not having “animal” in there. If there is ever a chris matthews, clone its animal.

lorien1973 on March 16, 2007 at 12:49 PM

She’s like a miniature Buddha covered with hair.

Can I rub her belly for good luck?

saint kansas on March 16, 2007 at 12:53 PM

I thought there would finally be a story without Rosie O’ddonel, but there she was, claiming marrocas are holey.

oakpack on March 16, 2007 at 12:58 PM

Mary Katherine, you have to enunciate. Speak from the diaphram (head out of gutter, please). You tend to sound a bit weak at times, you need just a bit more force in your voice, ala American Idol. Other than that, you were spot-on.

stonemeister on March 16, 2007 at 1:12 PM

She’s cute but she needs to speak just a tad slower and work on her diction.

MKH, forget this jerk! Your hotness indicator condinues to rise. Keep up the good work!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on March 16, 2007 at 1:12 PM

You defintely screwed up on that one!

Love the early 80′s look of the intro, and in general, the semi-subtle sarcasm that permeates the whole thing.

I don’t get the miniature Bhudda comment though, and I suspect that if you two ever meet in person she’s going to take a swing at you …

thirteen28 on March 16, 2007 at 1:12 PM

Covered?

wilkeson on March 16, 2007 at 1:15 PM

When exactly did MKH become hot? No – seriously.

Maybe I just have a thing for local news anchors.

And yes – her diction was just fine. The cut-away shots and the hyper-serious head turns were classic.

Professor Blather on March 16, 2007 at 1:19 PM

Dang, a couple months ago, everyone was telling me to speed up. Heh. I think I’ll just go back and forth between takes.

marykatharine on March 16, 2007 at 12:30 PM

For what it’s worth, I didn’t think you were speaking too fast at all.

However, I don’t think your team is nearly as fair as they claim to be. “How does it feel to be back in front of the camera?” That implies that the person was, at some point, NOT in front of the camera. As if you were implying that, at some point, the Democrats were out of power or were not relevant.

I don’t know how you can ask hard (& clearly biased) questions like that and still consider yourself fair & balanced!

JadeNYU on March 16, 2007 at 1:25 PM

You all have no idea how much fun we had putting this together. Getting paid to look up YouTube clips of the Muppets and laugh with Mary Katharine in Barnes and Noble is really the way to live.

KatieFavazza on March 16, 2007 at 1:28 PM

Attention conservo-groupies: That was me on the Simmons electronic tom rolls on the theme song.

And I thought the enunciation was perfect: She did say Commie Central, right? Sounds dead on to me.

When exactly did MKH become hot?

White. Hot. There’s your global warming right there.

UH, MARY KAT…F**K YEAH!

saint kansas on March 16, 2007 at 1:30 PM

I don’t get the miniature Bhudda comment though, and I suspect that if you two ever meet in person she’s going to take a swing at you …

It’s from Anchorman–Will Ferrell tells his dog he’s like a miniature buddha covered with hair. This is after the dog has advised Will on his love life in Spanish.

ThanksMo on March 16, 2007 at 1:33 PM

Excuse me gentlemen but show some repect for MKH! Maybe a little less drool. GOOD JOB MKH!!!

ChrisIansNana on March 16, 2007 at 2:21 PM

Looked like fun. Makes us want to get back in the game.

realVerse on March 16, 2007 at 2:39 PM

Beauty so unsurpassed,
only a blessing God could cast.

Beauty so beyond belief,
so surprisingly like a thief.

Beauty so bright,
much like the city at night.

Beauty so beyond compare…

Tim Burton on March 16, 2007 at 3:13 PM

That girl is just the best. She’s got the funny down pat. Once she gets quality mpeg conversions and slick production look out Dan Rather.

Griz on March 16, 2007 at 3:16 PM

I’m reminded of this:

Eh, wouldn’t take my link. Here’s the cut-and-paste version:

Blacklake on March 16, 2007 at 3:17 PM

Excuse me gentlemen but show some repect for MKH! Maybe a little less drool.

In my culture, drool is the ultimate sign of respect.

Funny and conservative? My drool cup runneth over.

saint kansas on March 16, 2007 at 3:25 PM

bbz123 on March 16, 2007 at 12:30 PM

There we go.

Lawrence on March 16, 2007 at 3:35 PM

Your hotness indicator condinues to rise. Keep up the good work!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on March 16, 2007 at 1:12 PM

It’s her lips.

Lawrence on March 16, 2007 at 3:38 PM

MK-Congrats on your Golden Dot Award!

Keep up the good work.

KelliD on March 16, 2007 at 3:57 PM

I was sort-of-smirking until Lambchop showed up. Then I laughed out loud.

Allahpundit, I think we all would be very happy if you dropped your Kirsten Powers fetish and took up an obsession with MKH instead.

When exactly did MKH become hot? No – seriously.

Professor Blather on March 16, 2007 at 1:19 PM

I’m worried about you, Blather. Have you not been paying attention?

Anton on March 16, 2007 at 4:04 PM

Ya done good, Mary Katharine!

Looking forward to more Dem~friendly, fluffy and flaky News Reports!

Jack.

Jack Deth on March 16, 2007 at 4:40 PM

Allahpundit, I think we all would be very happy if you dropped your Kirsten Powers fetish and took up an obsession with MKH instead.

Pointless in both cases.

Allahpundit on March 16, 2007 at 4:44 PM

MK – you’re one of the smartest culture warriors out there, and we love you. Bravo, and keep it up.

Halley on March 16, 2007 at 4:55 PM

Pointless in both cases.

Allahpundit on March 16, 2007 at 4:44 PM

Ouch.

You have my sympathy, sir.

Anton on March 16, 2007 at 5:34 PM

Stay classy, San Diego!

Centerfire on March 16, 2007 at 5:45 PM

Man, MK, Ignore the critics. Do what you do best. Speak normally and just keep on lookin’ good :)

Compared to my podcasts, you’re freakin’ awesome.

(A secret Admirer)

Damn it.. no one told me my name would appear on this message!

Rick Donaldson on March 16, 2007 at 7:05 PM

Kirsten Powers AND MKH!! Why choose?

unamused on March 16, 2007 at 8:11 PM

O, Mary Katharine, how do I love thee? I will build for you a shooting range, and there we shall happily reside until the end of our days. Or, until my wife finds out. Look, I can even spell “Katharine”. Please be my barntendress?

Barntender on March 16, 2007 at 8:22 PM

That was good. Yeah, slow down a little MKH. The sound was little fuzzy also. I obviously don’t know much about the technical aspects of making a vlog. Fuzzy is technical term as far as I’m concerned. That early 80′s intro was good. Were the 80′s really that tacky, I think so.

Yeah, RealVerse, get back in the game. I need a Bethany fix.

vcferlita on March 16, 2007 at 9:24 PM

Mary Katharine Ham is hot.

Tzetzes on March 16, 2007 at 11:22 PM

MKH

Nice, conservative, hoping she gets more exposure, otherwise, she’s jumping the shark
