Peace and Money

Mild error about Clinton’s record of peace aside, Chris Rock is obviously a better grade of celebrity. Via the bethrothed, who is more incisive than even Chris Rock when she writes:

This would be a better country if the new administrator of our public goods jurisdiction were ushered into office with all the fanfare of a shift change at Target.

That said, I’d like to appoint Chris Rock Official Enumerator of the President’s Responsibilities:

CNN: What are you hoping Barack Obama does for this country? What do you think is his most important task?

Rock: You know, if you’re the president you only have two jobs: peace and money. That’s it. I mean, it’s like, what did Clinton do? We were at peace and we had a budget surplus. That’s it. That’s the gig. The closer you get us to those two goals, you know, that’s pretty much the gig. Is that too much to ask for?

Too much because too little.
