It's got no official model name, so they simply call it "The Beast." I'm talking of course about President Obama's new ride, an armored missile bunker with an international communication system cleverly disguised as a Cadillac. (photo from General Motors)

Other reports say it has 5-inch thick ballistic glass, Kevlar mats, a closed circuit ventilation system, night vision cameras, shot-guns, tear gas launchers and a 10 disc CD player with a leather interior.See a picture of all the features here.
This has some doctors scratching their collective heads. After all, would the President ever be so far from a hospital that he needs his Secret Service dudes to start a transfusion? Also, donated blood only lasts for a short while, so unless Obama is making monthly trips to the blood bank the stuff would have to come from others as well.
But maybe it's not for him, perhaps they keep it on hand to use as a decoy in the face of a vampire attack? Or maybe it's there to feed the blood thirsty media once the Honeymoon Period is over?
