Obama Visits Mexico City

I find it kind of weird that Obama visits Mexico City and the angle the LA Times decides to play up is…people are inconvenienced. Doesn’t that happen anytime el presidente goes anywhere? Evidently Obama is staying in a fancy hotel (of course) in Polanco. The news coverage makes me happy that I didn’t pursue my dreams of world domination. Presidential travel sounds pretty lame. I bet he doesn’t even get to eat any real tacos…

    Food presentation for POTUS is orchestrated through the Secret Service. Providers are vetted by a level of logistical paranoia that must require nightly administered antidotes of lithium and Thorazine. There are royal food tasters. And suits running around with Halliburton cases packed with chemicals and electronics to detect unfriendly things approaching his royal highness.

    And to think people have this crazy notion that POTUS got to see any part of México.

    World domination may be over-rated, but I haven’t completely ruled it out.

    I do appreciate the difficulty of getting that good of a picture picture through that much glass,reportedly 5 to 6 inches thick, that is not easy.
