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..

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.

Hey why are we tyrannising a person who likes to act normal!

Ballmer would only be in China for a couple of months until a nuclear exchange over Taiwan would take place.

Seems fitting

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.

Fishing expedition?

You don't suppose McCain could be fishing for campaign contributions...
