Nigel Farage for President?

farageThis fantastic New Yorker story about European Parliament member Nigel Farage is more than enough for me to like him on Facebook. How so? Here’s how so:

In one speech, addressing Herman Van Rompuy, the newly chosen (rather than elected) president of the E.U. and former Prime Minister of Belgium (“pretty much a noncountry”), Farage said, “I don’t want to be rude, but, you know, really, you have the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk.” Later, pressured to make an apology, Farage offered one—to bank clerks.


But Farage had come not so much to flatter supply-side sympathies as to embroider his contention that the euro is toast. “I’m not anti-European at all. I’m married to a German, for goodness’ sake, so I know the dangers of a German-dominated household.”

More still:

…[Angela] Merkel (who, he said, “outside of the public glare, is a completely different person from the one you see on the TV: she is even more miserable in private”)…

God bless Nigel Farage!

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
