Last week ‘The Onion’ said I was going to become a male stripper. … ‘The Onion’ is probably more accurate than Tom Friedman.
Education secretary Arne Duncan • Responding to Thomas Friedman’s bizarre column suggesting Duncan was the perfect candidate to become the next Secretary of State — by citing the second most surprising thing written about him recently. Duncan wins on the sense-of-humor front.

If it were up to me, I’d put Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, in charge of American policy in the Arab-Muslim world.
Thomas Friedman has actually been on the Arne Duncan-as-unexpected-foreign-policy-genius tip for a couple of months, based on this October piece, which suggests Duncan should be leading our Middle East policy for some reason. At least he doesn’t think Andrew WK is a rapper like someone else at the New York Times does.

So, after reading this bizarre column from Thomas Friedman, I went to Arne Duncan's Wikipedia page and searched for the entry on foreign policy. Nothing showed up. Hey Tommy, can you admit you were phoning it in this week? It's OK, we won't judge.

Obama meets Jeb Bush: Not as successful as it could’ve been
As surreal moments go, Obama chillin’ with Jeb Bush in Miami on the education tip could have been a pretty cool one. We think he probably wins some points with the moderates for being willing to give a Bush – and not the unpopular one – the time of day. Unfortunately, it was a moment with flaws – the meeting itself was a tad awkward. And a speech he gave afterwards (in which he mentioned the meeting) actually drew boos for the bipartisanship attempt. It was a calculated political move, yeah, but you have to give the man credit for trying. He’s had relatively little luck pushing through the right side of the aisle, and he made an effort yesterday. source
