Harkonnen on the Hudson

Damn, damn, damn, damn damn... I am not the first person to write that watching a news report of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie riding 100 yards in a car reminded me of Baron Harkonnen from Dune. Damn it all! Yeah, there are no extant gravity repulsors, so Christie has to be chauffeured the final 300 feet after his wasteful helicopter ride:





Man, his ass looks humongous in that video... alternate post title: Bully Got Back.

Takes a Sikorsky to hoist all that.

Or one of those spice-harvester transporting ornithopters!

He could follow in (and deepen) Herbert Hoover's footsteps.

Weren't there enough State Troopers to carry him that last 100 yds. in a sedan chair?

I dunno, M.B., you ever see how those Harkonnens treat the help?

and then he left before the end of the game.

reversing the 100 yard drive, then helicopter routine. During the game.

Nice.

And his speech tomorrow will be about cutting government spending, you betcha!

I assume his people say that the limo was necessary for security reasons. If that is their claim, they ought to tighten up security while the guy gets into and out of conveyances, because right now he makes a pretty damn easy target.

Frankly, I think he should acquire an industrial-sized Hoveround (a Goveround?), which would be economical on account of I see from the TV commercials that people who qualify can get them at little or no cost!! Maybe they've found a way to genetically modify kudzu or something. Now there's a growth industry.

Larkspur, if it's for security reasons, I think he needs a Popemobile.

A modified container forklift?
