Who Should Drive the Car?

After a few weeks worth of President Obama’s endless “who would you rather have behind the wheel of the car” metaphors, this fits in fairly nicely:

Unlike most of the motorcade’s rides across the island during the president’s vacation, which were choreographed to perfection by Secret Service agents and state police officers, the trip hit a snag when the grouping of about a dozen vehicles appeared to miss the turn onto Pohogonot Road, where the beach was located.

In the middle of Edgartown-West Tisbury Road, the motorcade, consisting of several SUVs, an ambulance and a half-dozen state police motorcycles, executed a U-turn and headed down to Oyster Pond Road , where they apparently headed to the beach.

The snafu caused a roadblock for a couple of minutes while the large number of vehicles turned around.

There are so many reasons the Democrats should just let the driving metaphor go, and this only adds to the pile.

From the same story, D-Lo at WZ caught what might be the feelgood line of the day, at least as applied to some of the liberal activists disguised as journalists who spent the better part of 2008 and 2009 humping the leg of Hope & Change like pubescent puppies on Spanish Fly:

Members of the press did not have access to the beach outing today and were kept on a bus in Friedman’s driveway, according to White House press pool reports.

Spending the day trapped on a bus in somebody’s driveway while the Richie Rich’s you helped get there frolic about must make Crawford, Texas seem not quite so bad after all.
