Vice President, Joe "Choo-choo" Biden is in the news and talking trains again:
Biden Vows to Jump Canyon by Amtrak
GRAND CANYON, AZ - Standing on the rim of the gaping two-mile wide chasm of the Grand Canyon in a star-spangled jumpsuit, Joe Biden today announced a new $53 billion federal high speed rail program that will include funding for "SkyTrain X-2," a new experimental locomotive that, if successful, will make him the first known U.S. Vice President to jump the Grand Canyon by rail.
"This is a big fu%#ing deal - a big fu%#ing deal," explained Biden. "And I wouldn't have volunteered for this mission if I didn't have complete confidence in Amtrak, my good buddy [US Transportation Secretary] Ray LaHood, and Four Loko - the official energy drink of SkyTrain X-2."
Biden, joined by LaHood at the canyon-side press conference, said the dramatic jump attempt was planned to publicize America's return to world rail prominence.

Outside of P.J. O'Rourke, we can't think of a political satirist/humourist who splits our sides as consistently as does Iowahawk.
