Obama's Director of Speechwriting Getting a Feel for New Job
Jon Favreau is a precocious young lad who has been invited to work in the West Wing of the White House as the Director of Speechwriting for President-elect Barack Obama.
All of 27, Mr. Favreau began his writing career for Senator John Kerry`s presidential campaign. On a happier, more successful note, Favreau was Barack Obama`s chief speechwriter throughout the 2008 campaign. ***
In addition to his many talents, young Favreau is also a "hands on" type, especially when alcohol is available in sufficient quantities as was the case at a recent party attended by prominent Transition Team members.
At that party, young Favreau demonstrated his hands on style and sharp political acumen by groping a dummy looking remarkably like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of State-designate and still United States Senator from New York.
Favreau placed his right hand on the chest of the cardboard cutout while a fellow marauder coaxed a bottle of beer to the lips of the HRC likeness while landing a juicy smooch on the dummy`s head.
Naturally, a disgusting photo of this wild orgy was pinging across the Internet even before Favreau could sober up enough to write a denial.
As a result, Favreau has been made into an instant celebrity and household name, with "Idiot" being the run away favorite among people who drink less than a case of beer a day.
Favreau`s folly has also added to misgivings among liberal extremists who are concerned that the photo proves a bias toward centrists on the part of Team Obama.
As for Hillary Clinton, she is quoted as saying that she is flattered by the young man`s attention and looks forward to working hand-in-hand with Jon Favreau for several years.
