Rod: I’m afraid it wouldn’t work. I’d be terrible as an undercover agent.
I’d be like wossname in The Great Escape, who unthinkingly says “Sorry!” to
someone in a railroad carriage full of Germans. I’d get in with the
Berkeley crowd, win their confidence, and be on the point of hearing some
real hat revelations about, say, Carole Moseley-Brown and Kim Jong-il, then
all of a sudden I’d drop something like: “Funny, that’s not how it was
reported on Fox News,” or: “Thank God for people like Rick Santorum!” No,
it wouldn’t work.
