Punditry: a profession only a mother can kind of, sort of love

The video of a mother calling into a roundtable news show to verbally beatdown her argumentative sons is the closest real life comes to the awkward squirmy humor of Ricky Gervais. Joy, the mother of political pundits Brad and Dallas Woodhouse, surprises the boys during an episode of Washington Journal on C-SPAN.

"Oh God, it's Mom," says Dallas Woodhouse, covering his face with his hand.

"I was very glad," said Mrs. Woodhouse, "that this Thanksgiving was the year that you two were supposed to go to your in-laws. And I'm hoping you'll have some of this out of your system when you come here for Christmas. I would really like a peaceful Christmas, and I love you both."

Mrs. Woodhouse makes a finer point that most of the blabber coming from pundits. Let's have a peaceful Christmas. I love y'all.
