The Black Obama Bus-- Would an American Flag Be Too Much to Ask? It Is? Well, How About a Bumper Strip Then?

Here's the Tour America Sarah Palin bus:


First found in"Not for Hire:" Sarah Palin's Ride Photographed This Evening in Portsmouth, NH @ AMERICAN DIGEST

Here's the Tour America bus of the person who is currently passing himself off as the President of the United States of America:


Perhaps the Secret Service feels that anything identifying the bus as carrying the president might make it stick out too much. Hence, the only bus on the planet that looks like Darth Vedar is aboard. And, well, perhaps he is.

No, Vader wasn't this incompetent.

I assume that would be one of three identical busses that must always travel together, so potential assassins cannot tell which one is Greyhound One (the one containing the One). Remember, taxed once is not enough!

O's bus looks like something a gangsta-rap or speed-metal group would take on tour. The *Thugification* of Western culture continues apace....

No, but Vader had a better theme song, as Hail to the Chief seems wasted on this youngling.

Perhaps a fitting display on the O bus would be Jiminy Cricket singing, When You Wish Upon A Star with lyrics posted but only slightly changed.

You realize, don't you, Husky, that Pinocchio killed the cricket with a mallet at the beginning of Chapter Four? Pinocchio couldn't take listening to the cricket's dire warnings, and silenced him.
Wishing upon stars is how our betters are governing, now, as it is.

Ask yourself this: what kind of fucking political freak would drive across the country in a solid black bus?

It's positively ill.

Try Darth Fader is on board.

Is it white on the inside?

Perhaps it isn't so wise to insult Darth Vader in this manner.

I understand that the thing was made in Canada.

Wonder how many people he's gonna throw under it before it is all over?

I understand he's on Martha's Vineyard right now, is it too much to hope that he will let a Kennedy take the wheel.
Chappaquiddick...hint, hint, hint. THUD!

Actually, the bus company insisted on the anonymous finish. They didn't want to be responsible for fixing all the brick dents, birdshot pocks and paintball smears...

Why is Obama's bus so black?
Why won't some other color do?
Why is Obama's bus so black?
Why not purple, pink, or blue?

Why is Obama's bus so black?
Why it ain't some other hue,
Spots or dots or technicolor?
Why won't some other color do?
