Ideal Transportation Secretary Found for Obama

Since the Moonbat Messiah's pick for Secretary of Transportation, fellow Illinois pol Ray LaHood, has no qualifications other than a cozy relationship with the Teamster's Union, The One might want to consider going instead with the truly visionary Alfie Carrington — aka, the moon man:
The Macomb County [Michigan] moon man stood next to his forlorn flying saucer, which sat perched on milk crates in a weedy patch along Interstate 94. He railed against corporate conspirators and misinformed scientists.
According to the moon man, a nefarious cabal has blocked him from laying his hands on the necessary money to complete his perpetual flying machine — a machine he says, that could reach Mars in a mere two weeks.
"Bankers promise calls they never return," said Alfie Carrington, who when not working in his laboratory makes ends meet as a part-time construction worker. "The governor's office told my mother no. And these so called scientific experts who have never seen it, say it won't work."
And so the earthbound saucer sits north of 14 Mile, smothered in a blanket of bird-dung and snow.
"I say 'Is saucer aircraft technology in somebody's college?'" he asked. "There's no MIT for this. There's no Berkeley for this. They say 'Where did you get your saucer information from.' Nowhere. Because the saucer information is in here."
And with that, he knowingly tapped his temple with his forefinger. …
Carrington said he accepts disdain as the price of genius. And although he has no formal scientific training, Carrington does hold an associate's degree in psychology. …
He claims he's spent 30 years and $60,000 of his own money building the flying saucer, which he insists will replace the automobile and render the combustion engine and gasoline irrelevant.
Carrington's imaginative approach to transportation would dovetail nicely with the views of moonbats like Steven Chu and Carol Browner, who seem to think our economy can run without the use of fossil fuels or nuclear energy.
Yes we can, moon man!
