You can’t make this crap up. Kal Penn, best known for his role as a stoner, along with John Cho, in the Harold and Kumar movie series, is hosting the Democrat National Convention online at BarackObama.com.
I guess Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong weren’t available?
Forget how this cheapens the entire affair, including the Office of the Presidency itself, it’s a sure sign Team Obama is desperate to get people to watch the convention.
I also comes off as a lead in to a comedy show.
Then again, there will be plenty of comedy as the democrats try to sell Americans on 4 more years of the worst president in the history of, well, history.
Why Kal Penn though?
Our favorite residents of Boystown in Chicago, the guys over at HillBuzz, have their theories, backed up with some interesting evidence dating back to Barack Obama’s college days.
It’s interesting to think about why Kal Penn left the enormously popular House television show to go to work in some mystery job at the White House, only to just as mysteriously vanish from that job.
No idea if Obama is really “on the down low” or not, but having Kumar host the DNC for Obama’s official website is certainly breaking new ground.
