Um, Excuse Me, I'm With YOUR Government...

Okay, so this is awkward. During a congressional hearing at the end of last week, Florida Representative Curt Clawson addressed two senior US government officials as if they were representing the government of India.

The officials, from the State Department, are Americans with names that sound sub-continental – Nisah Biswal and Arun Kumar.

Clawson – who’s new to the House, having replaced another congressman who had to resign after being convicted of cocaine possession – asked Biswal and Kumar to get their government to lighten up on restrictions of investment of US capital in India.

The silence lasted for what seemed minutes. Okay, maybe not, but it sure felt like it. And Biswal let Clawson off the hook, saying, “I think your question is to the Indian government. We certainly share your sentiment.”

I don’t think I would have been that kind. I probably would have asked the chairman of the committee to slap the Gentleman from Florida upside  the head.
