CNN: "Chapottymouth" on Wolfowitz

Sepoy, of Chapti Mystery, was referenced on CNN yesterday. See the transcript here. It was on the air, so the reporter probably said something like "Chuh-potty," which comes out as "Chapotty" on the transcript:

The other one, kind of more humorous, over at Chapotty Mystery (ph). And they're talking about -- they call it as the Wolfowitz turns. And they're talking about the "L.A. Times" nomination of Bono, the U2 frontman, as the head of the World Bank. In their eyes, he would be a good choice. And they said that would have the White House scared. And what they're saying is that Bono would have forgiven all loans to Africa or something. And in Wolfowitz, they found someone who won't just raise the interest rate, but he'll invade Africa.

Here's Sepoy's original post on the subject.

[Wait -- CNN is reading Chapati Mystery...? Someone should start a blog called "Tipu Sultan: Tiger of Mysore" just to get CNN reporters to pronounce "Tipu" and "Mysore":

"Tipu" --> "Typo"
"Mysore" --> "Eyesore" ]

I also liked Jon Stewart's quip yesterday that, given Wolfowitz's complete lack of qualifications for the presidency of the World Bank, the Bush administration seems to be essentially picking these guys alphabetically (Wolfenson--> Wolfowitz).

Dude, Jon Stewart is the best thing to happen to television in years, except for America's Next Top Model.
