Fighting Stupid With Stupid

God help us when Boris Johnson -- the British equivalent of William F. Buckley crossed with Spicoli -- threatens to become the political savior of the American left.

...he is famously disorganised and once explained the lateness of his work by claiming that "Dark forces dragged me away from the keyboard, swirling forces of irresistible intensity and power", as well as getting his own name wrong on [British current events/game show] Have I Got News For You, and successfully getting locked out of his own home in front of reporters (having just told them his family would definitely forgive his affair). Twice his mobile telephone has gone off while he was on the BBC -- once on Have I Got News For You, the other while being interviewed on BBC Radio 2 by Richard Allinson, who was unafraid to scold him for it.
