You know how the TV version of situations everyone’s always younger* than they really would be in real life? For instance a 22-year-old Nicole Kidman playing a neurologist in Days of Thunder. Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist in The World is Not Enough. Meg Ryan as a helicopter pilot in Courage Under Fire. And of course all politicians always in every movie or TV show ever in the history of everything. This video just made me laugh. Who is this guy and how old is he**?
* Trouble is they’re supposed to be prettier too. I’ll leave it there so as not to hurt anyone’s feelings***.
** You can tell I haven’t seen very many press briefings since, well, Bush’s first term, really (I miss Ari). Anyway, this guy is actually 46 years old and I can only assume a midlife crisis made him put on what looks like his big brother’s wedding suit for this briefing.
*** Cuz you know the WH is keeping close tabs on this blog.
