'Wait, Wait...' It's David Axelrod!

President OBAMA's Senior Advisor DAVID AXELROD will submit to the infamous "Not My Job" grilling when he guests on NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO and CHICAGO PUBLIC RADIO's "WAIT, WAIT... DON'T TELL ME!" this weekend.
AXELROD will be featured on the segment, in which someone is asked questions about something they know nothing about, in a special episode of the panel show being taped TODAY (5/14) at GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY's LISNER AUDITORIUM and airing over the weekend. President OBAMA, as a Senator, did the "Not My Job" segment in 2005 and aced the test with three correct answers to questions about WADE BOGGS.
"Many people compare Mr. AXELROD to KARL ROVE, but we think that ROVE was smarter, as evidenced by the fact that ROVE never agreed to come on our show," said host PETER SAGAL. "We've got lots of questions for AXELROD, but all of them involve finding out how and where the President is sneaking his cigarettes."
This week's panel includes the WASHINGTON POST's ROXANNE ROBERTS and comics MO ROCCA and PAULA POUNDSTONE.
