Obama and Kumar Go To White House

Behold, the newest member of the Obama administration. You know him best as "Kumar" of that crazy duo, Harold and Kumar: Kal Penn

I have nothing personal against Mr. Penn - he was terrific in "24", which I think is the only work of his that I've seen.

Some of Mr. Penn's achievements from his illustrious career:
  • MTV Movie Award nominee in two categories - Best Musical Performance, Best On-Screen Team
  • Screen Actors Guild Award nominee
  • Teen Choice Award nominee

What for? Why does the White House need an Office of Public Liaison? Doesn't the entire "art" community already worship Obama? This sounds like a big, nasty corporation that is trying to do damage control (think big tobacco) through public outreach.

Glad it wasn't Sean Penn. Kal at least is likable.
