I'm not sure he's much smarter than Robert Gibbs, but he'd sure be a lot more entertaining:
Jake Tapper: In the name of the transparency that you and the president herald so much, is there any way we could get the copies of the waivers that the OMB issues, to allow certain cabinet posts or deputy posts to be free of the ethics contraints you put up? And also, the disclosure forms that your nominees put out that go to the Office of Government Ethics, that somehow they're not able to e-mail or put on the Web. Is there any way we can get copies of those?
Julio: OHHHH, GRACIOUS GOD, THANK YOU FOR ASKING ME THAT!!! [hyperventilates] I do not know what that means at all but I am so proud to represent Obama who is the president! The fact that I am doing this job that I am doing and answering your question is the answer I will give to that! [jumps up and down, whooping and waving baseball hat]
America: Awwww, cute!
It would be awesome. See, you can be as dumb as you want, as long as you worship Obama. Don't ask him anything that might make him look bad, and everybody will love you. You might even get some special oral attention from Keith Olbermann.
But whatever you do, don't go into the plumbing business.
P.S. Dear SNL: When you steal this idea, I'm thinking Sudekis would make a good Tapper. Can't decide between Armisen or Samberg for Julio, though.Posted by Jim Treacher at February 12, 2009 01:55 PM
