Where’s Obama’s Obama outfit?

January 12, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m very worried about security for Inauguration Day. With those huge crowds, how will they keep track of the Obamas?

All the Obamas are wearing super-sophisticated computer laser holographic microchip high-security credentials from now through Inauguration Day, as you can see in these photos.

Super-sophisticated? I could print out those signs on my Hewlett Packard!

Is that right? Then you can expect a Secret Service visit, Mr. Smarty-Pants!

Whatever. Is it just me, or do those folks not look much like the Obamas I remember?

Well, they’re not still wearing the fancy Hollywood make-up they wore during the campaign, of course. You think they’re gonna keep spending two hours every day getting made up?

So, we’ll never see that ultra-glamorous Obama couple again?

Sure you will. Come back in 2012.

Didn’t you know? Those outfits are how they evade the Secret Service! Highly effective too!

Haven’t you played Metal Gear Solid 4? That’s the first public evidence of real life OctoCamo! You saw it here first.

Where’s the humour, really lame non story.

And you’ll see them again in 2012, I think just wishful thinking on the writer’s part.

I would bet both the Army and Navy people will be on to bigger and better things by then. As for the Obama’s who is to say where they will be going on 2012.

Well, the Mayan’s calendar ends in December of 2012; I guess Obama leaving office triggers the end of the world :-) lol.
