This Is What Passes

Hmmm. What are we to make of this?


YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS UP [John J. Miller]
If you were a novelist writing a political thriller set in Washington, and you decided to name create a character who was an African leader seeking a meeting in the Oval Office, and you named this character "President Bongo," you would risk being called a racist.

Today, in the NYT, there is a story about the chief executive of Gabon meeting Bush in the White House last year. His name? President Bongo.

I don't think the writer would get accused of racism....any publisher would have already binned the book long ago for having a completely unrealistic presidential character who looks like a monkey, spouts crap like "Free societies will be allies against these hateful few who have no conscience, who kill at the whim of a hat" and has difficulty eating wheat-based snacks. Just not realistic man...

I once worked for an architect (he was a douchebag) who wanted me to call a bunch of other douchebags...er, I mean architects, to invite them to a symposium. One of the architects was called...I do not shit you...Eva Braun. Nobody listened to any of my poster ideas...I wonder why...

Looking through a bunch of documents at work here, just turned up a person with the surname Bozo.

Fucking hell.
