What a tool

When I was younger I had a stock response when someone complimented me, I usually said, 'Yeah, that and my wit, charm and boyish good looks are my best features. Well, those and my humility."
Why bring that up? Well, Obama had an interview with Oz's ABC
United States president Barack Obama says he and Prime Minister Kevin Rudd share several personality traits - one of which is humility.

What a tool.
While he has ample reason to feel excess humility, I have yet to see him exhibit it.
Via Tim Blair who notes that other shared traits are "awesomeness, heroism and a killer sense of humour".

Like Kryptonite to American Power

I'm finding it harder and harder to imagine a way someone would intentionally weaken the United States more than Obama has.

Return to White Castle

Is he really leaving for Hollywood, has he been thrown under the bus, or are rats leaving the sinking ship?  I think it's probably too much to hope that after a year, he's realized that Obama's not going to do anything notable regarding gay rights, lest allegations of coked-out rides in limos resurface.

Kal Penn, best known as the latter half of stoner duo "Harold and Kumar," is reportedly leaving his White House post as associate director of public engagement to make a return to the Silver Screen.
While I was stuck lying on the couch a couple of weeks ago nomming Flexeril like they were candy, I re-watched season 5 of House, and found myself contemplating how far Kutner had come, from having a role on a critically acclaimed, nationally syndicated show with 12 million viewers to being the sad guy sitting on a stool in a bar in DC*, sucking down drinks and hitting on guys by asking them, "Hey, wanna see my stethoscope?" or maybe trying to use his job in the White House as a tool to impress, except now that there are eleventy billion czars and he's not one of them, it's not quite so impressive.

At least his suicide made for fun TV.  I thought it was going to be Taub lying on the floor in a pool of blood, myself.
*Sorry, but I wasn't going back through 34,896 of Vinty's twattling to find the relevant twit.  Maybe he can find it.
