Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Vice President for Communications Peter Reid emailed me the most fantastic suggestion.
After seeing my post about US soldiers in Afghanistan doing their Lady Gaga stuff, he sent me another YouTube link of US Air Force Academy cadets playing up Kesha’s Tik Tok. Coolio.
And then he said, we should start a competition “America’s Military Has Talent!”
The winner would appear at next year’s White House Correspondents Association dinner.
Of course, the White House Correspondents Association has no connection to any of this yet — but we think that they should call Peter and me and put us in charge.
There is no doubt that these folks have talent, which I think could be deployed better than in the various military surges we have going right now — but still, that have talent.
