Colin Powell has appointed James Brown as our nation's "Secretary of Soul and Foreign Minister of Funk."

Now they just have to give Bootsy a position in NASA.

Powell is now one of the coolest Mo-Fo's ever in the White House.

If it wasn't for George Clinton's recent cocanie possession charges, I would say appoint him as Domestic Secretary of da Funk and Commander In Chief of the Mothership. Snoop Dogg can be his assistant.

Bootsy gets to be Prime Minister of Stanky Bass Lines.

And looks like Isaac Hayes got an Ambassador position.

"Isaac Hayes, Justin Timberlake, B.B. King and Scotty Moore have been appointed by the Memphis Mayor, Willie W. Herenton, to serve as Musical Ambassadors, leading the yearlong celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Rock 'n' Roll. "

That makes me feel good. Seriously, though, this actually makes me like the government down there better. Now, if only Canada could get Wayne Gretzky to some post. No wait, isn't he already a member of the Order of Canada?

Hell, if Gretzky ran for PM in the spring, he'd win for certain.

Maybe the government can force him by national law to take over the Maple Leafs.

Funny as I thought there might actually be some rock musicians on that committee.

He was cool back in the Army, too. In his autobiography, it details a story during his service with the Queen's Bucs in Korea, where he helped calm a black soldier who'd gone loco and was swinging a pool cue at everybody into a crying kid who wailed, "Nobody understands me!"

Powell defused the situation, put the guy on light restriction, and everything turned out A-OK. A couple of weeks later, the soldier passed Powell, threw him a snappy salute and said, "Colonel Powell, how you doin', sir." He then turned to his fellow black soldiers and said, "That's Bro P, Brother Powell, he's all right."

And that's how Powell got the nickname "Bro P" for the rest of his Korean tour. Awesome.

(Another plug for the book: it also talks about his kid, Michael, who was a lieutentant in the Army, suffered an accident in Germany, and had to learn to walk all over again. Yes, that Michael Powell...the head of the FCC.)

So where the hell is the Cabinet position for Richard Roundtree? Kick out Ashcroft and put Shaft in charge, baby.
