I hope there are no sharp objects in the Oval Office.

What would Bush do if there were no concerned citizens standing around to make sure he doesn't blow himself up?

Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation.

Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Chief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle [a hydrogen-electric hybrid car], 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 [CEO Alan] 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?"

This MIGHT explain why he keeps disappearing for a few days, and then re-emerging with his face all cut up.

Or maybe not.

Hmmm. could also be attributed to the hidden bottle of tequila.

Cheny would have been blown up, too. We were that close to President Pelosi.

Ford sucks!
