From Lord of the Rings Wiki:

“One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.”
—Boromir at the Council of Elrond

According to PoorlyDressed.com:

One Does Not Simply Ride the Bus Into Mordor

One also has to make several transfers, one of them lasting 25 minutes between buses. It’s suicide!

Bzzzzzt, wrooooong! Here’s proof from the Obama campaign:

BBC News: Obama’s battle bus no symbol of hope

Obama's Battle Bus to Mordor

In British elections we’re used to what we call “battle buses”, cheerfully painted wagons, festooned with party slogans and colours.

US President Barack Obama has embarked on his first bus tour in office.

But his vehicle for the trip through the rural parts of three Midwestern states looks like it really is heading for a battle.

Big, blocky, black, with painted-out windows, it looks more like a police mortuary van than a symbol of hope arriving on your street.
[…]
Neither inspirational nor angry enough, he needs something fresher – and to find another mode of transport than the battle bus from Mordor.

Read it all.

Political campaign FAIL:

The Blaze: Obama’s bus tour ‘Greyhound One’ made in Canada

Greyhound One

Now I have nothing against purchasing equipment made in Canada, even though the folks at The Blaze seem to be somewhat upset about this. That said, we do need to make major changes to the US tax and regulatory structure, so as to remove the incentives that cause manufacturers to locate everywhere but in the US.
