Interview with iOwn the World

Pundit Press is proud to present its first interview in a new interview series. We're interviewing BigFurHat of the excellent site iOwn the World. Please check out the site and make sure to bookmark!

1. When and why did you start iOwn the World?

One day, in early 2007, I got a call from my friend telling me
about this hilarious site called We instantly became huge fans. Then one day the same friend called to say that he did a parody of Audacity of Hope and that Oleg (the owner) published it. So, I did a parody ad called the Chevy Bill Ayers. He published that. Then another friend did a parody ad of a Ted Kennedy 6ft Monster Doll. He published that. So we started submitting regularly, so much so that he gave the three of us (Irony Curtain, Hippie Critic and myself) our own section called the KG3. While this was happening we had another friend who kept saying that we should have our own website and that she had a domain name - I Own The World. We liked the idea. So she worked hard to get the site ready for a launch date of January 22nd, the day Obama was inaugurated.
There were the 5 of us - Admin Girl (the owner), Mr. Pinko, Hippie Critic, Irony Curtain and myself. Then we added Snark and Boobs (Lori Ziganto) and illustr8r. We are committed to smashing the myth that the right isn't creative, as well as defeating progressivism.<
2. What has been President Obama's best moment in office? Worst?

I feel Obama's best moments are when he does roasts. He's actually got a pretty good sense of timing and delivery. His smugness actually pays off in that arena. His worst moment was trying to get into the White House through the window. Seeing him standing there like an imbecile was the first moment that people, who previously felt he was too cool and was going to be impervious to criticism, sat up and said, "uh oh."
3. You use photoshopped pictures a lot. Do you have a favorite?

My personal favorite is the Elena Kagan as Sergeant Schultz. Pamela Geller called at about 3am and didn't say anything but, "I need a picture of Kagan as a Nazi." I hung up and immediately thought of Schultz. I wasn't sure that the comedic overtone was what she wanted but I did it anyway. It almost shopped itself. I did it in 10 minutes. I e-mailed it and just got a laughing smiley icon back in the inbox. The thing I like most about it is that it is classic agitprop; it's just mean and intended to humiliate. That, and the fact that Rachel Maddow had the image on her show as a piece that was "beyond the pale!" The image was used for a breaking story when Kagan's college thesis was published. In it she admirably sources the work of a known Nazi sympathizer.

4. Any favorite for 2012 yet?
I actually want someone to step forward late in the game that is not a very recognized nationally known name and just capture the spirit of what is needed - a fairly young, vibrant, smart, energetic, positive CONSERVATIVE. Nikki Haley would be a good choice.

5. What's the best part about running your site?

The commenters. They are smarter than we are and their input leads to a lot of material.

6. What do you think should happen to Harry Reid?

Maybe he should be bitten in the ass by a rattlesnake while campaigning back in Searchlight. It would be a dicey situation. I'm pretty sure people in that region are done putting their mouths on his ass.
