Chat Room for the Chattering Class


Welcome to! Please join us at 9 p.m. tonight when we take our blog live, in a first-ever HuffingtonPost chat! With us online will be regular contributors Walter Cronkite, David Mamet, Larry David, Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, Norman Mailer, Sen. Gary Hart, David Geffen ....

AriannaHuff: ... So, like I was saying, how can we trust a president whose greatest achievement is making Al Gore and John Kerry actually look appealing? I mean, have things gotten this bad?

WalterCronkite: Hello? Hello? Is anybody there? What does the “Esc” key do? And what’s the difference between “Reply” and “Reply All”?


AriannaHuff: We need to take action. This president is dangerous! Anyone agree?

TheMailerMan: As he sat waiting for an idea to emerge, Ted thought of all those suckers in cyberspace eagerly anticipating his words, like puppies clamoring for the teat of their bitch mother....

DianeK: But you have to admit, Arianna, that he’s sexy in a way. OK, dumb-cowboy sexy. But at our age, we can’t be choosy, right?

LarryYadaYada: Why do they call this thing a “mouse,” anyway? Because it’s small? Because it has a tail? Lots of things are small and have a tail -- rats, ferrets, my cousin Seymour. Maybe they should call this thing a “Seymour” ....

AriannaHuff: Speak for yourself, Diane. I’m still in my 40s.

DianeK: LOL! And I’m still dating Woody!

LarryYadaYada: Then again, maybe Seymour’s not such a hot name, either. “Hey, my Seymour just broke!”

WalterCronkite: Can anybody read this?

WalterCronkite: Can anybody read this?

WarrenBaby: Hey, everybody. Here to talk. Hi, Diane. What are you wearing?

#%&Mamet;!!: So this is it? This is a blog? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? You are kidding me. Big friggin’ deal.

DianeK: Grow up, Warren. :)

WalterCronkite: I think I may have sent that twice.

WalterCronkite: I think I may have sent that twice.

TheMailerMan: Ted hated them. Hated them for their weakness, their conformity, their pathetic neediness ....


LarryYadaYada: And what’s the deal with spam? Why call it “spam”? If actual lunch meat started coming out of my computer, I’d think I’d kind of like that.

Sen.MonkeyBiz: Hello, group. Is Warren here yet?

WarrenBaby: Right here, Gary.

$Geff$: Hi, all. Sorry I can’t join u tonite. Scouting locations in Fiji for “Jurassic 4.” Waves and cabana boys galore -- yowza! [Sent wirelessly via BlackBerry from T-Mobile.]

Sen.MonkeyBiz: Anybody good yet, Warren?

LarryYadaYada: I mean, if you’re going to come up with a name for something you don’t want, don’t call it “spam.” Call it something you wouldn’t want. Like “vomit.”

WarrenBaby: Just Diane, Gary.

AriannaHuff: Doesn’t anybody want to talk about politics?

#%&Mamet;!!: What a bunch of whiners. Big baby whiners. You’re all a bunch of -- [BLOGMEMBER “#%&Mamet;!!” terminated by system operator for use of profanity.]

WalterCronkite: Uh, I just pushed a button and now I’m someplace called “Naughty” What am I supposed to do?

TheMailerMan: He imagined their heads split open, the blood gushing forth. But Ted saw nothing. A black void. A cold, hard, deadness....


WarrenBaby: Click “Gallery,” Walter. You can use my password: “Shampoo75.”

AriannaHuff: Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea....
