(Newser) – It takes a special sort of politics/media junkie to appreciate a send-up of Politico, they who brought you breathless updates on the laughter that no longer ensues at Robert Gibbs' press briefings. But take a Beltway insider with a little free time, and some basic animation, and you have automatons gathering for a spoof of a Politico editorial meeting. Some highlights from the supposed story budget, courtesy of xtranormal.


  • A Tea Party feature in which they could "compare each 2012 Republican candidate to a different variety of tea leaf. Romney is Earl Grey because he is traditional and dignified."
  • Another reporter "is going to write a White House story about how no one can prove that Joe Biden is not the Zodiac Killer."
