Would you post a picture of expired food on a product shot that you were trying to sell to the masses? I’ll stop beating around the Bush and start talking about him and his BlackBerry instead. Reports came out earlier this week that former Florida governor Jeb Bush demanded his BlackBerry be included in his gubernatorial portrait – what appears to be a BlackBerry 7250. Why not the Pearl, Jeb? Get with the times!

Now, the Globe and Mail reports that RIM’s Co-CEO has been alerted of the BlackBerry boasting, and what did he have to say?

Here’s what Balsillie had to say in a brief email exchange with the National Post’s Emily Mathieu:

“We’re certainly honored that Governor Bush chose to include BlackBerry in his portrait. He
has done a lot for the state of Florida. The US government is RIM’s biggest customer and BlackBerry is being embraced across all levels in the US as a key platform to allow government to operate more effectively.

All the best,

Jim”

What a nice guy. I wonder if I can get on his mailing list for my birthday.
