A Sitcom Star Is Born?

Will Duncan become a television star?
Los Angeles - The celebrity news website TMZ is reporting that former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan was spotted at cable and satellite television network TLC corporate headquarters.

After handing in his resignation to President Obama earlier today, Arne Duncan then flew to L.A. and met with several Hollywood bigwigs.

Reportedly Mr. Duncan is in negotiations with producers for his own prime time program.

Several sources have confirmed that the show will likely be a sitcom that pokes fun of Arne's penchant for misspeaking. Possible titles being bandied about include:
  • That's So Arne
  • Sons of Inanity
  • The Clumsy and the Clueless
  • IArne
  • Curb Your Enigmatic Spasms
  • That Darn Arne
  • Oops I Did It Again, and
  • Arne the Quagmired Mansplainer

"I'm not saying it's a sure thing," cautioned TLC producer Tampa Talla. "But given Arne Duncan's ability to both infuriate and bemuse... well let's just say he's got an unusual talent."

  1. You have quite a writing gift. It is combining the poor state our country is in-where those who are least knowledgeable of what teaching involves are making powerful decisions--with irony. Unfortunately, it is a sad state of affairs.
