Notes from Amman

posted by on July 22 at 12:50 PM

Via Ben Smith:

One of the features of this trip seems to be foreign leaders offering Obama assistance with his politics — clearly in Iraq, but also in Great Britain and, apparently, Jordan, where Carrie Budoff Brown reports that the King “drove Obama—literally, the King was behind the wheel of a Mercedes—to his campaign plane on the tarmac in Amman at 9:15 pm.”

Speaking of which, can I get a ride to the airport Friday? Thanks.

I'd drive Obama anywhere. Actually, I don't have a car, so we would have to car jack one but after that, I'd drive him anywhere!

I always prefer having the Queen drive me - she's more accustomed to driving on the correct side of the road.

King Abdullah is actually always pretty low pomp and circumstance for a king. He's apparently rather practical and doesn't do the many different cars and drivers etc that his father did. And his wife is a smokin' hot palestinian chick.

@5, you and your pathetic faction should hire a writer.

@6 Don't you know Republicans don't write anything? They just steal from Democrats.

Is there a problem with having no balls? Some of my best friends don't have any and I've even had sex with some people with no balls. Balls ain't everything.
