A perennial solution to security?
Blog Guy, last month you said that in case extremists get into the White House grounds and overpower the Secret Service, the Obamas have been trained to hide behind trees and shrubs.
You said they even carry bundles of foliage when they cross an open area. You had a photo of Michelle Obama carrying protective bundles of herbs.
Yes, I did say that.Why?
Because I think it’s total hogwash.
Hogwash? That school Harry Potter went to?
No, that’s Hogwarts, you dimwit. I’m talking about balderdash. Drivel. Hokum. Poppycock.
Fine, believe what you like, but you’ll sing a different tune when you see this photo showing President Obama going through a shrub drill at the White House.
A shrub drill?
Yes. The protective shrubs come up without warning, and he has to run a maze. As you can see, he’s quite nimble. I guess you could call shrubs, um, a hedge against terrorism.
Of course it isn’t just shrubs. Whole tree limbs can appear out of nowhere for his protection.
Now see, that’s just total crap. I’ve never heard about this protective tree thing before.
What? You’ve never heard of the Executive Branch?
