The president of the United States, wearing a beat-up work coat, jeans, cowboy boots and a baseball cap pulled down over his face, left his ranch Wednesday night and climbed into an unmarked car with tinted windows. p> He then secretly commuted to a Texas airport, impeded for the first time in three years by traffic lights and stop signs.

This was an awesome and dargerous mission, but it brought with it utter success and great morale-boosting. And that British Airways story WAS true after all! Sounds like maybe this Washington Times reporter was along for the ride?

At that point, a photographer said to a skeptical colleague, "Do you believe it now?"

"We looked like a normal couple," Mr. Bush said. This comment might get the sleazy liberals a little pissed. G.W. sounding like he gave not a thought that Condi and he would "look like a normal couple". Beautiful!

The president's pilot, Col. Mark Tillman, responded, "Gulf Stream Five" ? referring
to a much smaller plane.
"Oh," replied the British pilot, perhaps catching on, perhaps unaware.
That British Airways pilot couldn't be that stupid. I suspect there is a line or two
redacted from the total story that would probably reveal that the Brits
really are first class stand-up guys.
Not the sorts who'd flunk the eye-chart exam!

"The airport was blackened and Air Force One, once on the ground, could not be seen. The motorcade traveled to the mess hall full of troops with lights out on most vehicles."
No runway lights? I mean, you can fly a full ILS right down to the ground but the left-seater still has a decision height and it IS nice to see the ground, even though the system tells you it's right under your gear. Anyone know what ILS there is at Dadhbagg?
