Hail to the chief?
Blog Guy, I see President-elect Obama is vacationing in Hawaii. Do taxpayers have to pay to fly a bunch of limousines over there to drive him around?
The president-elect rides in a cab?
Well, I’m pretty sure he gets to expense the cost, as long as he gets a receipt:
“Okay pal, we’re here. That’ll be an extra buck for your suitcase. ”
“Actually, driver, it’s not a suitcase, it’s the nuclear football, in case I have to nuke some country.”
“Hey sport, call it whatever you want, but it’s gonna be another dollar…”
