Those wacky Georgians

The country not the state has a new TV spot that's just, well, it's startling. Have you seen it? How'd they know to spoof SportsCenter? How'd they know humor would stand out? It seems so youthful -- the antithesis of what these economic development campaigns always are.

And then I read this in the June Monocle: "When Mikeil Saakashvili assumed Georgia's presidency in 2004...he brought with him a team of young supporters. Three years later, they are runnning the country....the country's young politicians -- the majority of whom were educated in the US and Europe -- have a particular finesse in dealing with the West." I'll say. And the Minister of Economy, whose office seems responsible for the TV spot? He's 29.

I'm such a failure.

What, ruling something with more consonants than vowels in its name? Feh. You’re right where you should be for someone right where you are.

Be happy with that, please.
