Two clips from last night’s competition, to which Washington journalists and political apparatchiks flock annually for the purpose of kinda sorta amusing each other. Righty blogosphere fave Mary Katharine Ham was one of the judges and proved she’s a gamer by trying her own hand at stand-up, albeit briefly, to warm up the crowd. That’s the first clip, via the good folks at Eyeblast. The second clip is of the winner, Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett, who’s actually not half-bad for an amateur. The dig at Politico should be a crowd pleaser with HA readers, and his Arianna Huffington impersonation is so good that if you close your eyes and concentrate you just might think you’re watching an especially lively episode of “Morning Joe.” Look out for the Palin joke, though. Or rather, “joke.”
