— Ace Before I get into the Top Ten, let me mention a few honorable mentions.
This post is still one of my favorites, because it both makes fun of an easy, soft target -- Joshua Micah Mellencamp Marshall -- and because it's the first appearance of Geoffrey the Duck, who appears in the "Never Waste a Good Premise" update. In fact, that's really the part of the post that's worth reading.
In the funny and true department, this post, "Andrew Sullivan: I Only Watch PBS," explores liberals' kneejerk insistence that they almost never watch TV, and yet seem to do little but natter on about Sex & the City constantly. Andrew slams Ann Coulter for saying "everyone should watch more TV," and I slam him back. Idiot.
This is a love-it-or-hate-it post. I love it. a Special Guest Editorial from Rich "Psycho" Giamboni, titled If You Touch My Hoagie One More Time, I Will Fucking Kill You.
I always meant to do more with Psycho. I wanted to do a Vote For Bush Or I Will Key Your Fucking Camaro piece, but it just seemed to be the same thing all over again. Oh, well. One-trick pony.
My favorite Michael Moore hit-piece: Michael Moore Goes on a Mid-Manhattan Lunchtime Death-Spree.
And my second favorite: The Case of the Missing WMD's: A Michael Moore Mystery (TM).
I've attacked Wonkette a lot, pretty much because she's overrated, overexposed, and underfunny. Here Wonkette announces her new "Morning Zoo" format.
Here Nick Denton attempts to launch a Muslim-friendly Wonkette-style gossip site, titled Jihadette, with tragic results.
For a while -- maybe she still does it; I don't read her -- Wonkette did little but traffic in gay rumors. So I decided to compete with her -- as "Wankette" -- and start trafficking in my own gay rumors du jour.
And my favorite Wonkette hit-piece -- a verbatim transcript of her first and only appearance at Open Mike Night at the Dupont Circle Laff-Shack. It's like the birth of a young, somewhat-attractive faux-mo Lenny Bruce.
And, just to show that I'm not obsessed with Wonkette (although, I guess, I really am), here's an aperitif, a wholly gratuitous attack on Michael Totten, the only independent in America with the balls to tell you how superior he is for not being a member of a political party.
Well, that's enough for now. More as the day goes on.
Update: Eh, this one's okay, too. Playing off a real story that the intelligence community was eyeing blogs for fast-breaking information, I got hold of a CIA memo digesting what had been recently learned from Wonkette, Instapundit, Oliver Willis, and Drudge.

I'm trying to keep it a mystery. You know, like you're never sure if a classic-rock station's top 100 weekend is going to end with Stairway to Heaven.
I mean, I'm always on pins and needles wondering if, for the billionth time, Stairway to Heaven is going to be Number One.
I'm keeping you in a similar state of anticipation.

He was slightly more versatile than Johnny Coldcuts, who wasn't a one-trick pony so much as a no-trick pony. Although Senator Pundit LOVES him-- but I think it's mainly because of that awesome picture of him (which I had nothing to do with, of course).

What other ones are you thinking of? I can't think of any off the top of my head except "Lightning bolt, lightning bolt!"
