Um, didja look at that 7-page application form? You got any "controversial" posts? As long as we're filling out forms, what's the MOST controversial thing you think you've ever "said" online?

Daniel

Forms are for "the little people." I'm a DONOR, Sue. Try to get that through your thick skull, you commie.

As per your question: Great leaders don't fear controversy. Gotta break eggs to make omelets, right? But I have compiled this list, for use in my "vetting process" (which is stupid on its face, since their own Army records show that I've been a vet ever since 1988):

No. 10: "Dave Winer? He's a big pussy!" (March 5, 2006)

No. 9: "Enough weenie-talk! Everybody needs to admit, right now, that Don Rumsfeld is RIGHT!" (July 14, 2003)

No. 8: "I know more about football that Bill Belichick, no matter how he spells his name." (Dec. 5, 2005)

No. 7: "Sarah Palin? Rhymes with 'Failin'' TAKE THAT AND CHOKE ON IT, GOP!"

No. 6: "Mmmm... Mylie Cyrus" (April 21, 2008)

No. 5. "If I were Lisa, I'd be, you know, a little worried about Ed spending so much time with this Luna person. And I mean like hire-a-private-detective worried, if you get my meaning." (Oct. 17, 2007)

No. 4. "You know what Santa Claus can do with that North Pole of his? (Dec. 26, 2007)

No. 3. "Janet keeps telling everyone she 'had' Robert Scoble in her car. Whoa." (Oct. 20, 2008)

No. 2: "Face it, Professor Sloop: You, sir, are a DOODYHEAD." (Nov. 14, 2008)

No. 1. REMOVED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.

Received this Tweet:

"rth @xarker You can have your Washington job. Give me an ambassadorship to, say, the Marshall Islands. Think about it: DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY. "

Reprobate.

Hilarious.

Doodyhead? I'm using that one. TOMORROW.

Jeff Tompkins

Absolutely hilarious. Thanks for the much needed laughs this morning.

"I am those people." Priceless.

CRUCIAL UPDATE: Writer and sex blogger Susie Bright has ALSO PUT IN FOR MY HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES APPOINTMENT.

Or, rather, Laura Flanders put her in for it in The Nation.

Obama's not making the big policy appointments yet. But what if he did? Bush put an affirmative action opponent--the former dean of the Pat Robertson School of Government in charge of The White House Office of Personnel Management. At the Administration For Children and Families, Bush named a man who spent a decade fighting domestic violence and child custody laws. To head up the Advisory Committee for Reproductive Health Drugs at FDA, Bush named a physician who refused to discuss contraception with unwed women.

To come close to any of that, Obama would have to name sex radical Susie Bright for Health and Human Services, tree-sitter Julia Butterfly Hill for EPA. Dennis Kucinich for Secretary of State. Treasury? Jamie Galbraith. Defense? Trumping the criminal warmongering of Donald Rumsfeld would take a pacifist lawbreaker way to the extreme of Cindy Sheehan.

Ms. Bright is a fine human being, an excellent writer, and yes, she did send me a free copy of her new book, X: The Erotic Treasury after I included her in the Xark banner. And yes, I'm planning to get around to writing about this book, which is a collection of very hot short stories about .... well, it's just a very good book...

But friendship and admiration aside, this is business. So BACK OFF, BRIGHT! I put in for HHS FIRST.

Daniel

OK, Tom Daschle gets HHS.

My feelings are a little hurt, but you know, the guy needs work. I'm cool with it. Serenity now, serenity now...
