Pundit Kitchen, a new site from the folks who brought you Icanhascheezburger, is an LOLcat site, except for politicians instead of cats and other animals. PunditKitchen.com

When I wrote this morning about an LOLcat contest in which Icanhascheezburger.com users would be contending to create one of five bottle labels for a soda company, I mused that it would also be nice to have a politics-LOLcat mashup.

Wait no more. In fact, even as I wrote it, the nice folks at Icanhascheezburger hopped in their time machine, went back 24 hours, and launched the exact site I wanted yesterday.

Well, OK, maybe there was no metaphysics involved. But either way, on Monday, Icanhascheezburger launched Pundit Kitchen, a site for LOLcats, except with politicians.

The same folks on Monday also launched another site, GraphJam, that is effectively LOLgraphs.

So now, if you want to take any photo of a politician and append a silly phrase to it, these guys have got your back.

The user submissions on Pundit Kitchen lampoon politicians on both sides of the ideological and partisan divide. PunditKitchen.com

The effect is pretty much the same as on the main Icanhascheezburger site. Except that, perhaps, the tone is a little bit meaner. One thing that it got me thinking as I waded through the submissions, is just how far will the site's administrators go in poking fun at politicians and the people who, er, love them.

The answer to that remains to be seen. But, with a stock of Pundit Kitchen submissions that already lampoons both sides of the political spectrum, I dare say the 2008 election season is finally underway.

Aren't you glad you don't have to wait anymore?
