Just some stupid kids doing burn outs. Lamer than drifting, just for show.

Sad that actual "drag racing" gets a bad name as a result. Not that street racing hasn't already done it....

I saw the video on CNN. It was an actual dragster car. Not just some idiot kid in the middle of some floats. It looked like it was actually set up by some idiot who didn't think of potential dangers.

The driver should have refused to do it. Complete moron.

I heard it was also billed as some kid's event. Sorry, sad sack mofos should go to the joint.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
