If Selected, I Will Serve!


In light of the news that Robert Gates will step down in 2011, I would like to announce my candidacy for the position of Secretary of Defense of the United States of America.  A non-exhaustive list of my qualifications:

  1. Attended a CNAS Christmas party.
  2. Can stand for several hours.
  3. Got lost once near the Pentagon parking lot.
  4. Knew a guy who worked in a defense related field, although we kind of lost touch a few years back.  I could probably still find his e-mail, though.
  5. Can list the names of every battleship since USS South Carolina from memory, as long as you don’t count the ones that were never built.
  6. Have watched Red Dawn 19 times,  Top Gun 26 times, and Hunt for Red October 45 times.

Now to make plane and hotel reservations for the Senate confirmation hearings…
