I don't see why this is so embarrassing. At least he is doing something positive for once. Fair enough to slam politicans when they f*ck about, but I don't see how providing 1/6 of the required mosquito nets is embarrassing?
Ok, so in the UK we do not expect politicians to appear on trashy tv programmes but unfortunately that is one of the only ways to get through to a lot of Americans.
oooops edited to add an apology, I didn't realise this was in the NAAFI. I'll give myself a good talking to for being so sensible.
