Obama on Boston Drivers
Barack Obama, in Berlin, on the perils of an inter-connected world:

Wow. Now how am I supposed to sleep at night?
I suppose "drivers in Oklahoma City" wouldn't have the same alliterative appeal. But picking on a dense, transit-rich city seems like a cheap shot - and provokes the suspicion that we simply topped the list of "recognizable B-cities in reliably blue states."
