They definitely got Obama’s back.

With over a million people showing up to wish Obama well in DC yesterday, you had to figure that there might have been one or two that wished him harm, right? It’s almost hard to believe that there weren’t any security issues. For instance, what would have happened if someone would have rushed the Obama’s limo during the parade? Well, let me give you a hint.

It’s a Yukon with some special modifications courtesy of the Secret Service. Think of it as a Millenium Falcon-type gun turret combined with the gun that Gov. Ventura carried with him in in ‘Predator.’  Namely, the Dillon M134D Gatling Gun, a six barreled, electrically driven machine gun chambered in 7.62mm, capable of firing 4,000 rounds per minute.  And get this, the bullets are laced with poison.  And the poison is high in calories.  These guys aren’t messin’ around.

By the way, Obama’s caddy is pretty sweet, too. Click here for a better and bigger view.


Other highlights:

• It can withstand rocket impacts and it’s perfectly sealed against biochemical attacks.
• Petrol tank: Can withstand a direct hit thanks to a special foam and armor-plating.
• Bodywork: made of dual hardness steel, aluminum, titanium, and ceramics to “break up posible projectiles”.
• Tyres: Kevlar-reinforced with steel rims underneath so it can run away no matter what.
• Accessories include: Night vision cameras, pump-action shotguns, tear gas cannons.
• Comes with bottles of blood compatible with the President’s blood.

The only thing I don’t get is this: It has a ten-CD changer. A CD changer? What is this? 1994?

  1. So, Obama’s car is very much like the car Edward bought Bella before their wedding while she was still a fragile human. Cool.
