That’s too bad, he’s good for comic relief as Press Secretary.

He’s already had the PC twit role in the MacIntosh commercial. Maybe he’ll do a reprise. The Apple bigots will get all jittery at the thought and scream like little girls.

I used to use Apple....until I met some guys who used to work for Apple. The whole green Jeep thing & worship. Vvvvvvv. Creeped me out.

Selling woman's lingerie seem like the only thing he might have expertise in.

Might be the only place to find a job after his boss gets done.

Fat, dumb & stupid is no way to go through life. But hey! You can always say that you were White House Press Secretary for the worst administration in history. Looks good on that resume!

A pit bull??? Give me a break. More like a gay poodle at a Village People's concert.

I didn’t realize the market was that big for dufuses. Maybe he’d be better off to present himself as a buffoon; he might have a better chance that way.
