Jon Lovett: Obama Speechwriter, Huffington Impersonator

November 2 was a tough night for the Dems. No matter, though, because exactly one month later, there's victory. Unfortunately, it's not the legislative kind.

As of last night, Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett is officially “The Funniest Celebrity in Washington,” taking top honors at the annual beltway laugh-in.* He was bolstered, surely, by his speaking savvy, youthful charm, and mostly-funny TSA jokes, but it was his impressive Arianna Huffington impression that brought the house down and secured his victory over runner up Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Wash.). Check out Lovett’s winning routine here.

*actually, we hear the crowd was pretty tough.
