Republican Chickenhawk "Disinvites" Apprentice Winner

This just in from Mr. Atrios:
July 11, 2005 -- THE Young Republicans have given cocky "Apprentice" punk Kelly Perdew the boot. The brash Perdew, now working for Donald Trump after winning the second season of "The Apprentice," was slated to emcee Saturday's black-tie dinner at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, which closed the Young Republican National Convention. But convention chairman Nathan Taylor got fed up with Perdew's irksome antics and unceremoniously disinvited the former Marine at the last moment. A fired-up Taylor tells PAGE SIX's Fernando Gil: "Who does this guy think he is? Just because he works for Donald Trump doesn't give him the right to demand first-class airfare, limousine rides, and act like a total prima donna. He's been a total nightmare for me!" Since winning "The Apprentice," Perdew has garnered a reputation for being difficult. As we reported in May, he threw a drunken fit aboard an airplane and ranted to dumbfounded fellow passengers, "Do you know who I am?!"

Ah, "fame."

This is not surprising. There are questions about Kelly Perdew's biography that have raised questions.

Sounds like this guy would have been the perfect speaker for the YRC. What's the problem?

Someday, should he begin to lose his faculties, he will be able to yell with impunity "Do I know who I am?"

Existentialism comes slowly to those inured to thought.

Next to him, even Nathan Taylor seems like a Real Man to me.

Ignore what both sides are saying.

There are indications that Perdew may be gay and the YR recoiled at the thought of a gay MC.

Note that Kelly Perdew is still taking every advantage to mention his military background.
