Go Speed Racer…Go!…Go!


Found this picture on Crooks and Liars, and I just couldn’t help myself.  Thought everyone could use a little Friday afternoon amusement — what’s your caption?

For the policy wonks in the audience, Froomkin has a great rundown of El Presidente’s border interview extravaganza in the beautiful, dust-filled border region outside Yuma, AZ.  (fwiw, I got a lovely string of ceramic peppers at a Mexican border town outside of Yuma for a bargain price once.  Muy caliente.  Ooops, am I gonna get thrown out as a citizen now because I used Spanglish?)

As reader twolf1 says:  it’s 13 days until hurricane season — do you know where your levees are?

UPDATE:  Jeralyn got a quote from Rove spokesman Mark Corallo that the Grand Jury did not meet today, so far as he knows.  Just FYI everyone.  (H/T to reader Harry.)
