WOW! Is this guy lucky or what?

The LA Times reports this morning:

A nine-car motorcade took him to a nearby Starbucks early in the morning, where he ordered a large cappuccino.

Christ, I make my own latte using one of those little old-fashioned Italian stovetop things because I can't afford one of those pricey machines. Meantime, HisPOWness gets a 9-car motorcade?

I know Starbuck's is expensive but this is ridiculous.

Uh, YourPOWness, is that campaign funds you're using to pay for that motorcade? Just wondering.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
