It took two whole days for Funny or Die to spoof the amazing campaign ad of Dale Peterson, American hero and candidate for agriculture commissioner in Alabama. (God, we love that the Internet exists. Can you imagine how tragic it would have been if this ad came out in 1994 and nobody knew about it except for some people in Alabama who didn’t even find it funny? Anyway.) Obviously this is some low-hanging fruit, and the original ad is already so ridiculous that it almost doesn’t even need to be spoofed, but we’re not complaining. Couldn’t you picture an entire movie like this, starring Danny McBride as Peterson and Will Ferrell as his campaign manager, which ends up being only so-so overall but is periodically hilarious?

Cindy McCain, who endorsed Biden during the campaign, is reportedly his pick for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. World Food Programme
President JOE BIDEN is preparing to name Republican CINDY MCCAIN to a coveted ambassador post in Western Europe in what would be his administration’s first Republican appointee to a Senate-confirmed position.
McCain is undergoing vetting to be nominated for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. World Food Programme, a mission based in Rome, according to two sources with knowledge of the matter. This comes after the administration declined to install at least one member from the opposing party in a Cabinet position — a practice of three consecutive presidents (BILL CLINTON, GEORGE W. BUSH and BARACK OBAMA) before DONALD TRUMP broke the streak.
… As chair of the McCain Institute board of trustees, McCain has worked on curbing world hunger and human trafficking. During the 2008 campaign, she traveled to Georgia with the U.N.’s World Food Programme to visit wounded soldiers after a Russian invasion and also monitored the program’s work in Southeast Asia and Africa.
