Wrong Hole George, Please Let This Be A Joke

When I first read this article I thought, well actually hoped it was some sort of belated April Fool's gag. Maybe this was a piece from the Onion that the Detroit News accidentally picked up. I still don't know and I still hold out hope that the POTUS isn't this big of an idiot. That being said I still tremble at the stories that came out of Shrub's trip to the Catepillar plant.

With George's rather colorful past, one wonders how he didn't learn that you don't just shove it into any hole that is available. We may now have an explanation for that uncomfortable smile Laura wears.

Plug it in, fire it up, Mr. President
The Detroit News
Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation.

Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened to prevent President Bush from plugging an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of Ford's hydrogen-electric plug-in hybrid at the White House last week. Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Chief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle, so the automaker arranged for an electrical outlet to be installed on the South Lawn and ran a charging cord to the hybrid. However, as Mulally followed Bush out to the car, he noticed someone had left the cord lying at the rear of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

"I just thought, 'Oh my goodness!' So, I started walking faster, and the President walked faster and he got to the cord before I did. I violated all the protocols. I touched the President. I grabbed his arm and I moved him up to the front," Mulally said. "I wanted the president to make sure he plugged into the electricity, not into the hydrogen This is all off the record, right?"
