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.

    What about The Doors themselves: “Break on through to the other side.”

    Since corruption and congress seem to be on the minds of the DC press corps, why not use one from an already convicted member:

    Trafficant: I’m disgusted, busted, can’t be trusted. Beam me up, doors opening.
