You know that Kanye verse on “Clique” about former CIA chief George Tenet and his inferior Maybach? ("I’m talking George Tenet, I seen him the other day/ He asked me about my Maybach, think he had the same/ Except mine tinted and his might have been rented.”) The lyric is actually half true: Kanye and George Tenet did run into each randomly in New York a few months ago, according to Tenet’s spokesman, and they did exchange words. None of them were about cars, though, probably because George was embarrassed about his.
