The Accidental Journalist

So Jenna Bush -- the Kim Bauer of the Bush clan -- is joining the Today Show as a special correspondent, proving that, seriously, anyone can get a job on air at NBC.

This is such great stuff that I honestly can't decide which crack to go with. Choose from the following or feel free to come up with one of your own.

A) I guess playing dress up and acting like something you're grossly unqualified to be (fighter pilot, cowboy, president of the United States) runs in the Bush family.

B) Yeah, because that little Tiki Barber experiment worked out real well.

C) Oh, Today Show, really -- I LOVE YOU SO.

D) Well, the good news is that at least Billy is no longer the dumbest Bush in the NBC family.

HAHAHA! You can't get much lower than 'the Kim Bauer of the Bush clan'.

By the way, I'm going with A.

Huh, Tiki Barber was a guest judge on Iron Chef America today. I was tempering my pain over a fellow 26-year-old grabbing the New Yorker gig with food porn all day.

Is it really a job, "a monkey can do" ?
Just reading text scroll thrown at you ?
May I inquire about whether this is true ?

CNN is all the proof I need to see that you don't need to be a journalist to find work as a journalist.
