The end of 2012 is upon us, and while the world hasn’t ended, there’s little doubt this senator wished this interview would have ended a lot sooner than later.

Watch as Maria Bartiromo of MSNBC does what undoubtedly so many millions of Americans wish more in the mainstream would do: Mercilessly hold a Senator’s feet to the fire on an issue as important as the Fiscal Cliff. The senator, with his proverbial tail between his legs, tries to quell the Fire of Pwnage from Bartiromo, but he simply can’t take the heat. Enjoy the verbal tongue lashing as the fiery-mouthed Mrs. Bartiromo rhetorically asks, “Are you guys just incompetent or what?”.

You bet it is. After Jay Leno stole the Tonight Show after a week of Conan being on it Jimmy Kimmel came on the 10 at 10 to make a statement. Jay ran away with his chin between his legs. We are bending the rules from politics, to office politics, to tv politics but… observe the pwns and the entertainment factor they provide. Kimmel for president???
