Irascible chair-flinging corporate tyrant Steve Ballmer could be in the running for a top government job, it was revealed last week. Presidential hopeful John McCain, speaking at the D: All Things Digital conference, announced plans to co-opt various tech industry luminaries in the event of reaching the White House. According …
Vive le Ballmer!
I'm thinking Ballmer would be the perfect Emperor - err, I mean embassador - to China.. His communist operating system will work well there..
Oh wait, he called Linux communist!
You know, communist - the fact everything has to be closed off, limited, and forbidden. You have to do everything ONE way.
For FUD's sake!
A cunning plan
Either the man (John McCain) is totally stark raving mad, or it's a cunning plan, worthy of Baldrick, to send the renowned furniture-throwing potty-mouth somewhere where he just might disappear.
Come to think of it, we could appoint Prescott as ambassador to Uzbekistan.....
Hey why are we tyrannising a person who likes to act normal!
If only you could scream and below at work - kick chairs around, smash up everything - it would be ace.
Hang on - why do I feel like doing that at work.
Oh yeah - because my PC keeps doing things I don't want it to do - or stupid users think the moon can be delivered on a stick in 5 different flavours because they read marketing literature that promises the earth and delivers nothing!
So yeah 'communism' is the nu cool comrade!
Former Soviet Republic of Ubuntu
Please, Ambassador Ballmer I am not sure you understand, we simply can't launch an arial assult on Ubuntu.
I feel World War III coming...
More noise from McCain
Luckily John McCain, invented war-hero, who is spinning faster than an Iranian centrifuge and driving on the right of the Pretzel President has absolutely zero chance of getting into the White House
(...whereby I make the sign of the cross twice and throw a hare's paw around for good measure)
Ballmer would only be in China for a couple of months until a nuclear exchange over Taiwan would take place.
John McCain, a man whose temper tantrums are legendary is looking for a fellow playmate.
If he's elected I'd give the world 20 minutes before a 'developers! developers! developers!' chair-chucking tantrum went nuclear.
I think North Korea would suit his personality better...
As the Vulcans say...
"Only Ballmer could go to China..."
You don't suppose McCain could be fishing for campaign contributions...
