Zizek in the Cabinet.

It's old news, but it contains a stroke of genius: put Zizek in the new US cabinet.

But why is this genius?  Zizek is, after all, an insightful critic who rarely makes his position plain (go ahead, Zizekians, and correct me if you like).  This is, however, a valuable voice to have in the halls of power.  Critique from within should not be under-estimated.

But if Obama won't have him, let him move to Australia.

That was a cool letter! I'd welcome Zizek into Aus. (Not that I know anything about him beyond that letter...)
