Is there a Cliff's Notes for Charles Pierce's column?

http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/

I finally figured out today that "Dancing Dave's Disco Dance Party" is "Meet the Press"

Dancin' Master - David Gregory
Zombie-eyed Granny Starver - Paul Ryan

For some reason, no mention of Massachusetts is complete without mention that it is a Commonwealth that requires blesing.

I'm still giggling that he can say boogedy-boogedy in a column with a straight face.

3. Other tropes

The Republican presidential candidates got these:

Every time Santorum is mentioned, it is followed by "and have I mentioned recently what a colossal dick he is?"

Newt Gingrich is "Definer of Civilization's Rules and Leader (perhaps) of the Civilizing Forces" - a reference to this

Michele Bachmann is "The Girl with the Faraway Eyes"

On Sunday morning programs, Bob Schieffer is given a new post each week as a reporter from centuries ago, like "Commerce Correspondent for the Hanseatic League" etc. George Stephanopoulos is "the Clinton Assistant Who Was Horrified By Blow Jobs". The programs themselves get a new metaphor each week, along the lines of "what <famous composer> would have produced if writing Symphony for <unholy unmusical noise-producing thing>".

4. I see what you mean

Welcome back to our weekly survey of the state of Our National Dialogue which, as you know, is what Haydn would have come up with, had he written the Duck Call Concerto N. 3 In A Flat, or, for that matter, in a small semi-detached outside Wensleydale.
