HuffPost plans expedition to flyover country

Yeah, good luck with that:
Having made its name as a home for liberals and the blog posts of coastal elites, the recently renamed HuffPost is seeking to reinforce its new, less partisan image with a seven-week bus tour through Middle America to “listen and learn what it means to be American today"...
And, in the great tradition of fake news, Paco World News Daily (PWND) already has a few photos of these intrepid explorers, as they plunge into darkest Middle America.

Typical Middle-American slips inside OODA Loop of inattentive HuffPost reporters.

"Sorry, Jason. It's just that he was babbling aggressively about some group called 'Seventh Day Adventists', and I didn't feel that I could afford to take any chances".

"Well, I ain't never heard a' nothin' called lapin au vin, but if you're hungry, right over there's a What-A-Burger".

This is why I read Paco.
Bloody funny.
Nobody does snark like Paco.

Maureen Dowd is no Maureenn O'Sulllivan.

Thankee, Mike.

And, no, she isn't.

Why do I have a feeling this is how the Huffpoers imagine their arrival in flyover country?

The Twitter feed is hilarious over at Twitchy. I kind of think it will be like that, too, because asking PuffHost reporters to be objective is like asking a leopard to change its spots.
