Beats Wankin'

Posted By on Mon, May 14, 2007 at 8:30 PM

It's well-known that Beltway media elites and the Bush administration are extraordinarily chummy (see the sickening display that was MC Rove, for instance), but who knew they rocked together as well?

Tonight, in an historic first, the pampered dandies of the networks, represented by CBS' Bob Schieffer, and his Honkytonk Confidential outfit, will take on administration spokesfucker Tony Snow and Beats Workin' in a battle of the bands that will likely focus more on the audience's (and indeed, the bands') endurance than on songcraft or charisma.

The National Press Club is hosting the event, and tickets are a mere $50 for members and $60 for non-members.

The real reason for this post, however, is to mock the pitiful skills of Beats Workin's Web designer (undoubtedly one of the chumps in the band). Check out the obsessive use of "And More!" on Beats Workin's "Songs Lists" page (a theme you'll find repeated on the Honky Tonk Confidential home page [scroll down to the red (!) typeface under the second photo]). Beats Workin' also misapprehend the lyrics to "All Along The Watchtower" on their "Contact Us" page, thus creating an alternate reality where the wildcat does not, in fact, growl, making the whole scene a lot less menacing.
