Austin Bay is soliciting serious nominations to who should succeed the depressed Kofi Annan as Secretary General of the United Nations. I was about to make my own nominations when I noticed that darn word “serious.”
So there’s the newest Wizbang contest — nominate the next Secretary General. Be sure to give your nominee’s qualifications, as well. And with luck, I’ll announce the winners on Thursday.
Here’s a few examples to get you started:
Yassir Arafat: they loved him so much when he was alive, let them deal with his rotting corpse.
Scott Peterson: not only would running the UN be, most likely, a fate worse than death, but the former fertilizer salesman is used to to dealing with that kind of BS.
Bobcat Goldthwait: Not only would sending a comedian to the UN send exactly the right message, they’d have to hire yet more translators to understand what he was telling them.
