That Would Have Been Symbolic

Filed under: Politics — The Professor @ 8:40 pm

I am in DC today and tomorrow.  Was walking to dinner, crossing Connecticut at M/Rhode Island (just a couple blocks north of the White House), when I was almost run over by what I am sure was Obama’s motorcade–5 motorcycle cops (with sidecars) with sirens wailing and lights flashing, several limos, several big SUVs, inc. a couple with antennas/comm gear that doesn’t come standard from the factory, followed by a couple more motorcycle cops.  

Thinking about the “stimulus” bill always makes me feel like I’m about to be run over, so I had a sense of deja vu watching this assemblage blow by.  

And if you suggest it wasn’t Obama’s motorcade–that’s my story and I’m sticking to it’-)
