Executive Outings

Super-duper-secret White House tapes to be released 5 May, 2032:

The President approaches a shirtless Joe Biden, washing his Trans Am on the White House driveway, 'Hey Joe, wanna knock off work and have a burger?'

'Sure Barry!  Whatever you say Chief and Commandante!'

'Secret service?  This is your Messiah.  I want the motorcade ready for a burger run, got it?  None of those 'planning' excuses either!'

'Hey Gibs, get those puppies of yours rounded up, we are going on a road trip to the frontier, let's see what things are like in Hicksville, USA!'

Robert Gibbs, 'May I ask where we are going, your Excellency?'


'Sir, shouldn't we take an airplane to go to Texas?'

'There is an Arlington in, where? Texas?  Fer-reel?'

'Yes Mr. President.'

'No, not that one, we are going to the one in Virginia.'

'Very good Sir, Hicksville USA, Arlington, Virginia.'

'Don't tell your press puppies that I called it that.'


'No, Hicksville,  and get someone from Interior or Commerce or, um, or someone to get one of the Arlingtons to change its name.  This is crazy like having more than one Springfield!'

The motorcade is assembled and the streets between the White House and Ray's Hell Burger are cleared.

The obedient press corps took their scraps of free-to-them meat and reported.  They had no idea that Reason Magazine's own Nick Gillispie has been onto them for a while.  Nick gave the puppy Press Corps a few hours of breathing room and launched this salvo:

Yeah, Silent Cal in a headdress is kind of awesome. Barry O being all condescending about some hamburger is not. Fuck Barack Obama, yo.

Shut the fuck up, Bonnie Cosby.

whom he dismissed as "cheap dates."

That has to be related to RC's Law in some way. I mean, they are cheap dates, they spread their legs for vague promises of HOPEANDCHANGE after all, but I doubt Obama would like people to understand he's not kidding when he points it out.

But lest the liberals get their panties in a wad, this is no different than the 8,000 cut away shots of GWB clearing brush from his "ranch."

The problem isn't that they all do "commonmanisms," it's that the press reports on them with no recognition of how cynical they all are.

The Obamer does burgers? He should have taken his new secretary of Asian affairs to White Castle. After a couple tokes, of course.

OK, who linked to this story? We obviously got picked up by some damn partisan site somewhere. Fess up, now.

Yes a true partisan, John Cole.


If you're up for it, leave a comment there defending Gillespie and see what happens.
