Looking for new Voice

Local blogger K Street Blues has a hysterical take on the search for the new voice of the Metro.

So what if Metro got some politicos and famous-for-D.C. types to do their announcements? Some examples could be…

Bill Clinton: “I did not stand in the way of those doors, on the Metro train.”

George H.W. Bush: “Read my lips: Stand clear of the doors.”

James Carville: “It’s the closing doors, stupid.”

Howard Dean: “Yyyyyaaaaarrrrrrgggghhhh! Stand clear!” (Or, alternatively, “The doors are gonna close at Dupont Circle, and Woodley Park, and Cleveland Park! They’re gonna close at Farragut West! And King Street! And Wheaton!”)

JFK: Ask not what what the Doors can do for you, ask what you can do for the Doors.

Dan Snyder: Stop thinking about the doors or I’ll trade you.

Nixon: I am not a door-blocker.

Oliver North: I don’t think there is another person in America that wants to close these doors as much as I do.

Oh this is just fun. Contribute your own in the comments.
