News, but not the serious kind
We’re supposed to pretend it’s really him?
Blog Guy, sometimes I worry about security for President Obama in this crazy world we live in.
How do other countries deal with protecting their leaders? Does anybody do it better than our own Secret Service?
Yes. France is miles ahead of us in safeguarding President Nicolas Sarkozy, by keeping him under wraps constantly.
Really? But Sarkozy goes out a lot. I’ve seen him.
Hah. No, you haven’t. You’ve seen the Sarkozy 3000, the animatronic computerized version of the president that makes ALL of his public appearances.
It’s still a tad herky-jerky and acts up now and then, but it’s getting better, and it fools most of the French people most of the time.
See these photos? He almost looks live!
Ah. Now that you mention it, I CAN tell the difference. But what about Sarkozy’s wife, former supermodel Carla Bruni? Is she animatronic, too?
Are you stupid? If they could produce a life-like copy of Carla Bruni do you think there would be any problems left in the world?
