Catch the excitement.Drat that Sky News, with their lack of embed function on their videos! Anyway, here is the most exciting thing you will see all day: President Obama’s driver trying to execute a three-point turn in front of the British Prime Minister’s house. A lady fixes her hair while a man directs the car into its parking spot! It is pretty goddamn thrilling compared to pretty much anything else that’s going on today. [Times Online]

  1. Is that his ΔΤΧ Death Car? Did they put the steering wheel on the other side? Also, did they give him one of those drivers who says everything in rhyming slang and you can’t figure out if he’s taking you the long way around, so you give him a shitty tip, and he says “fucking wanker”? Probably not.

  2. yeah, SKS, London Riots = Electrifying AND the Republicans are unveiling their Budget! That deserves some EXCLAMATION POINTS due to its excitement level!!!!!

  3. No, no, no. You tricked me into watching a plane landing for a minute and 15 seconds. You’re not going to get me again.
    How about some sexy photos of Liz Kucinich in the “Dancing With Cleveland” competition?

  4. The £250,000 Beast is equipped with rocket-propelled grenades, a night-vision camera and pump-action shotguns. Built from titanium, it is capapble of withstanding a chemical attack, and its 5 inch glass windows are rocket-proof.


  5. This typefies exactly what’s wrong with the Obama administration. George Bush woulda just gotten out of the car, walked into the house across the street and waited for everyone else to show up. Accommodating your allies? Now they’ll think we’re just weak.

  6. Highlight of my day so far involved looking out of the office window and seeing the beast, the back-up beast and about 10 other Barry-related cars stuck in a traffic jam as they tried to turn into Trafalgar Square.

  7. “It is pretty goddamn thrilling compared to pretty much anything else that’s going on today”

    Errrrrr, I’m assuming you haven’t read about the GATES OF HELL being blown wide open on the streets of London?!

  8. [re=278448]SayItWithWookies[/re]: No no. Barry just told the driver to take it slow so he could finish the rest of his bacon butty.

  9. I was hoping the hair-fixing lady in the foreground would strip ala the PETA chick. But no!


    [re=278433]jagorev[/re]: Let us know who was burned in effigy.

  10. [re=278456]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: The BBC’s Ben Brown said there had been an “increasingly ugly mood” in Threadneedle Street after protesters smashed RBS windows with missiles, OMG, MISSLES!!1, oh, wait.. including coins and computer keyboards, fuckin’ Brits.

  11. [re=278469]freakishlystrong[/re]: I thought they meant for realsies missiles too, but then I realized that kind of thing only happens in the best cartoons.

  12. Sometimes I forget how popular Obama is. Then I realize that videos of his limo being parked exist and are considered news items, and then I remember again.

  13. From the link: Obama’s limo is nicknamed ‘The Beast’, and it seems it was designed for wide American roads.

    Yeah, well, in ‘murica we like our roads like we like our asses, nice and wide!

  14. [re=278477]freakishlystrong[/re]: As though it wasn’t confusing enough, they even said that some of the protesters “launched missiles.” I mean, come on. Are the Brits just too elitist to say “threw”?

  15. The President is an example to all Americans. Everyone should drive a hybrid car like he tells us to so that he may attain an arsenal of tank-Cadillacs.

  16. [re=278481]Zadig[/re]: Soccer-playin’ Brits don’t know how to throw. Watch a cricket match sometime for confirmation.

    [re=278445]DC Hates Me[/re]: CNN would have teleported Anderson Cooper into Hopey-space.

  17. [re=278481]Zadig[/re]: [re=278469]freakishlystrong[/re]: [re=278470]Gallowglass[/re]: …yeah, when I saw the term “missile” the first thing I thought of was a “TOW Missle”! Those motherfukkers play for keeps over there!

  18. [re=278478]the lady MS.Sheila Dixon[/re]: I see Jerry Bruckheimer project. A newly elected African-American president is attending a major conference of world leaders to talk about some dire global threat…biological weapons? Anarchists (see what Alan Rickman is up to…too old?) execute a well-planned (ironic…work the humor in that) attack on London streets. Big Ben, babies in prams, double-decker buses, tube stations under siege. This young and handsome president (see what Will and Denzel are up to) is at pressure at home (yahoos, corrupt CEOs). With the London streets in turmoil (he grew up tough in Chicago, so he knows urban warfare), he can’t stand just sitting in meetings. Leaving behind his tough assistant (maybe Jewish guy?), he slips away from 10 Downing St, straps into The Beast, his state of the art limo, and they race to the scene of the riots. Oh, and his wife (Halle?), who was supposed to give some kind of goodwill speech for orphans or whatever, gets in there too somehow. He and his secret service posse discover features of the Beast they never knew about…blast the hell out of the anarchists. Jewish assistant meanwhile strong-arms the bad guys at the summit. President returns, cheering crowds, signs a new accord. Fox-type news back home has to kill their negative coverage; CU of evil fat cats and pols, grimacing. Pres and wife disembark at Andrews Air Force Base…crowd goes wild. Blong TV-reporter/nemesis is won over. President’s 2 adorable kids run up to him and hug him. Wrap.

  19. What? The limo doesn’t blare ‘hope,hope,hope…’ at 120 db when it backs up? What about the children?

    I want to see more riot coverage.

  20. Did you all see the “G20 Spouses” slide show on that Times Online page? all sorts of ladies in various glamorous shots, then finally a photo of Michelle (the only one with skin darker than beige) wielding a pitchfork in the dirt. i mean, sure, she’s made an effort to be earthy, but it’s a bit undignified for them to choose that particular shot, no?

  21. But did The Beast pay the congestion charge or are they continuing the Bush tradition of claiming diplomatic immunity or some such?

    If Boris Johnson didn’t beat Livingston, The Beast would be looking at 50 quid a day charge for its engine size
