ARF! ARF! The diary of a conservative dog in the White House
Big Journalism ^ | 1-6-2010 | Robert "Bo" Ferrigno

Bow-wow. You can call me Bo. I’m President Shoutout’s family mutt, a Portuguese water dog with curly black hair. My real name isn’t Bo, but I’m not telling you my real one. Bo is fine. It’ll do anyway. Took the White House brain trust four months to come up with it — you wouldn’t believe the names they actually considered. Let’s just say that “Alinsky” was a contender until Axelrod said “why don’t you just name it ‘Arafat’ and kiss off flyover country for 2012?” Yeah, he called me “it.” Axelrod’s a real sweetheart. Barry’s chief political advisor, which means he spent the whole presidential campaign sending candygrams to the press corps so they wouldn’t do their job. He could have accomplished the same thing with a Hershey bar stolen from an orphan’s Halloween bag. I got his number. Axelrod smells like cabbage and tries to kick me when Barry’s not looking.

Hilarious.

Peggy… she smells good, like mahogany and oranges, but she’s confusing. One minute she’s in a fugue state about Barry’s cool elegance, like he’s Fred Astaire with the nuclear football, the next she’s all weepy about teenagers who don’t know who Ronald Reagan was, and how just yesterday she was talking to an old friend about the delicious chocolate macaroons they served at this little shop on Third Avenue back when Republicans didn’t raise their voices, or nominate trailer trash for high office. You get the idea. Just another loony old broad with a column. Maureen Dowd without the desperation....

Axelrod’s approach to the media is to hold up a chew-toy so they’ll walk on their hind legs. Offer them an exclusive interview with Barry and they’ll lick themselves with delight. Rahm prefers to smack their snouts with a rolled-up newspaper.

This was so funny!

Let’s hope we hear lots more from Bo!

First...it’s nice to see Ferrigno can do fun writing as well as the serious stuff.

Second, did the White House do a video with Bo for the holidays? If not...why the heck not? I mean, I know how they’re all about how great they are and how crap Dubya was, but seriously...if Axelrod didn’t think the Barneycam videos were (a) fun and (b) worth carrying over, he’s not as smart as advertised.
