“Pimp My Ride” on Steroids
Images of the new limousine which will shuttle soon-to-be President Obama about town have emerged on the Internet, and while it’s not exactly piling up style points, its’ design pretty much guarantees it to be the meanest car on the streets. Almost universally inspiring comparisons to a tank, it’s apparently built to withstand a sustained seige. But lest you think this only to be a bruising hulk of steel (or whatever the space-age alloy/composite,) the inside is a cacoon of luxury that allows the Prez to be in communication with astronauts on Mars, if need be. Drawbacks include poor gas mileage, annoyingly large blind spots and rough handling. I’m sure they’ll have those kinks worked out by the 2012 model.
