I wonder how you getÂ chosenÂ to be the President-elect’s stand in?
Ten-year-old Damon Weaver, of Florida, was just issued his inaugural press credential by the Inaugural Committee. With that set, all young Mr. Weaver needs is an interview with President-Elect Obama. Because HuffPo has been giving Damon a lot of attention, there is a possibility that he could eventually score an interview. (Many HuffPo readers have been emailing around for him, giving him support, etc. Also, he has Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat issuing a video of support.) It’s kind of nice to see young kids getting involved — a nice thing for the fifth-grader to put on his college application in seven years, right?
To get a sense of Weaver’s reporting style, check out his incredibly adorable interview with VP-Elect Joe Biden from late October:
Is the economy getting you down? The thought of Madoff’s Ponzi scheme nauseating you? Still irked that the auto bailout didn’t pass? Don’t worry, Joe Biden and his adorable puppy are here to cheer you up!
“It seems President-elect Barack Obama’s children were not the only ones promised a dog after the presidential election. Biden’s wife, Jill, made the same assurance to her husband if he and Obama, his running mate, won the election.” (Chester County’s Daily Local News)
A U-M professor has created microscopic Barack Obama faces from nanotubes.
“Each of the millions of hollow carbon cylinders that make up the incoming presidentâ€™s image is tens of thousands times smaller than a human hair, but stronger than steel â€” tiny stuff once of science fiction but now of Nobel prize-winning scientists.”
Nanobiden’s are forthcoming.
Checking my classy yahoo.com email account (YES, Nathaniel, I still have that stupid avatar) oft leads me to stumble over some cheesy articles, but this, despite lack of academic or rhetorical merit, was actually marginally interesting. It lists the code names the Secret Service has selected for the President Obama and his family, yet perhaps even more interestingly, doesn’t discuss the selections or the process by which they were chosen. Barack Obama will be referred to as “Renegade” and if anyone else is as cool as me, keeping a dictionary at hand at all times, after an initial double check and cross reference, he or she will realize that the definition of this word is a person who abandons his or her principles, faith, cause, or country without reason. Thoughts?
PS – Michelle will be called “Renaissance”, Malia “Radiance” and Sasha “Rosebud” (a name shared by Maureen Reagan), the Bidens will be known as “Celtic” and “Capri”
Here are some other code names of past:
JFK – Lancer
Jackie Kennedy – Junior
Jimmy Carter – Deacon or Lock Master
Reagan – Rawhide
Nancy Reagan – Rainbow
Barbara Bush – Snowbank or Tranquility
Hillary Clinton – Evergreen
Al Gore – Sawhorse or Sundance
Ted Kennedy – Sunburn
Um yeah… I think someone is adding this to their audition tape for Fox News.Â
(Left to Right) Josh Strazanac, Sonya Suter, and Scott Launius getting busy.
Last night at the Ford School the College Democrats and the College Republicans faced off in a debate. Many multi-cultural student organizations were inÂ attendance. For the Dems, the charge was led by Josh, Sonya and Scott. I’m a little biased but I think they kicked ass. Full story here.
