When in Rome ... Go to Ray's Hell Burger
President Obama treated Russian president Dmitry Medvedev to a traditional American lunch at the Arlington eatery Thursday before returning to the White House for a joint news conference.
Obama ate a traditional cheeseburger, while Medvedev added jalepenos, mushrooms and onions to his. The pair shared an order of fries, according to the White House. No word on which superpower paid for the meal. (Update, 1:47 p.m.: It was Obama's treat.)
Yeah, and the aforementioned Secret Service detail was our treat.
Seriously, I don't know if this place delivers, but even if they normally don't, I'm sure they would have made an exception after getting a phone order from the White House.

"It's like Goebbels," referring to Hitler's notorious Minister of Propaganda. "Goebbels invented this kind of propaganda. He took control of the whole world. She wants to be president. That's her ambition, the first woman president. That's what this is all about."Now, I don't claim to bed a professional historian or anything, but I don't remember when exactly it was that Goebbels "took control of the whole world."
Oh, and of course, the comments comparing Whitman to an infamous Nazi were "taken out of context." Yeah.

With all due respect to colleagues, these things aren't happening to Obama. They are happening to the world. Obama's vaunted "good luck" was in campaign politics, a far smaller and more manageable stage than he's playing on today. There has never been a time in world history when stuff wasn't happening.Um, are you sure you want to go there? Oh, who the fuck am I kidding?
