This Is the Back of the Ready for Hillary Super PAC Bus

| Tue Jun. 10, 2014 1:25 PM EDT

Hillary Clinton's book tour began today in New York City. The Ready For Hillary Super PAC is following her around. This is the back of that bus.

Texting while driving is bad and stupid and dangerous and, in a lot of places, illegal. Drivers are 23 times as likely to crash while texting than they are not texting. Don't text while you drive.

Correction: An earlier version of this post said it was actually Hillary Clinton's bus. It isn't. It's a super PAC's bus.

"I like you."

"I like you!"

"No, really, I really like you."

"I really really like you!"

"I love you, to be honest."

"Well, I'm in love with you!"

"I want to marry you."

"I want to marry you today!"

"I want to marry you right now!"

"We're on a train. Do people get married on trains?"

"No, but this train is taking us to a plane. Do people get married on planes?"

"No, but that plane is taking us to a lake. Do people get married on—"



"Docks! Yes, people get married on docks. It's true. Let's get married today on the dock! At the lake! The old rickety dock!"

"Uhhh...what about, like, on the beach?"

"No, on the dock! It's genius!"

"Wait, but—"

" don't want to marry me on the dock?"

"No, I do."


"I love you."

"I love you, as I said, but, well, it's rickety."

"My grandfather built that dock."


"I loved you..."



"Ok, yes, I'd love to marry you on the dock."


"Oh my God."

This is funny and sad and awful and true. We have accepted that occasional mass murder is the cost of America.
