Idiot Nation

The decline of the American Empire is right on schedule, and I for one am hopeful that our new Chinese overlords will have show some leniency:

Actor Kal Penn, who is best known for his role in the “Harold and Kumar” movies, has returned for a second round of work in the Obama administration.

Penn is returning to the Office of Public Engagement to work as an associate director, White House spokesman Shin Inouye said in a statement to ABC News. He will “be the point person for those in the Arts, Youth, and Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities,” Inouye said.

The actor, who goes by his given name Kalpen Modi in Washington, has been in and out of the political world in the last few years.

After campaigning on behalf of then-candidate Barack Obama in the 2008 campaign cycle, Penn left the television show “House” in mid-2009 for a similar job in the Office of Public Engagement that began in July of that year.

Penn resigned that post on June 1, 2010, to fulfill his commitment to film the latest, Christmas-themed “Harold and Kumar” film installment, according to CNN. The movie is set for release during holiday season 2011.

Here’s the exit question: What’s more moronic?  Kal Penn working in the Obama administration to begin with returning to the Obama administration, or that there is a third Harold and Kumar film?
