I know it's just so hard to believe President Chimpster couldn't quite figure out the whole plugging-in-an-electric-cord thing, but the Detroit News is reporting George Bush almost blew himself and half the White House up when he was being shown an electric car by the CEO of Ford:
Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation.
Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened to prevent President Bush from plugging an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of Ford's hydrogen-electric plug-in hybrid at the White House last week. Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Chief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle, so the automaker arranged for an electrical outlet to be installed on the South Lawn and ran a charging cord to the hybrid.
"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?"
With Boy George at the helm, how the country's economy, foreign policy and the city of New Orleans have been destroyed is a real mystery, huh?
