How about that.
Kal Penn, the actor who was a remarkably diligent, oddly well-informed campaigner for Obama, killed his character on "House" last night so the actor could take a White House job, EW.com reports.
I was incredibly honored a couple of months ago to get the opportunity to go work in the White House. I got to know the president and some of the staff during the campaign and had expressed interest in working there, so I'm going to be the associate director in the White House office of public liaison. They do outreach with the American public and with different organizations. They're basically the front door of the White House. They take out all of the red tape that falls between the general public and the White House. It's similar to what I was doing on the campaign.
Sounds like Peter Orszag will no longer be the biggest celebrity in EEOB.
Kal Penn campaigns for Obama in Jan. 2008:
Zero has to put an “Indian” face out there, lest the public get used to seeing Bobby Jindal.
Farce? That movie is pretty damn funny.
Maybe Penn has a sense of appropriate gift giving at the national level ... ;)
Who is Kal Penn?
Seems The Great Eared One already had time to meet with Brad Pitt the day after he met with, but didn't have time for, Gordon Brown.
IIRC, Penn was the son of a terrorist on 24.
A farce is a funny play or movie. It’s not a pejorative term, except in politics.
What, a case of White Castles for every national leader?
“IIRC, Penn was the son of a terrorist on 24.”
Zero is appealling to his younger fan base. They love terrorists too. Real ones and fictional ones.
“What, a case of White Castles for every national leader?”
Yep, and a custom bong and white widow weed ...
He also identifies himself as being of Gujarati—or Northwestern Indian, primarily Muslim and culturally akin to Pakistani—descent.
