Traffic in Los Angeles is horrible on a good day, but tonight it’s being described with words like “apocalyptic.” The President flew into Los Angeles International Airport tonight from an earlier fundraiser in San Francisco, then brought parts of the city to a screeching halt as he made his way to a fundraiser at the home of former NBA star Magic Johnson. The local media are already posting “traffic warnings” for the rest of Obama’s trip tomorrow.

Maybe there was no way to avoid it, but it would be nice if the White House could have planned this in a way that it didn’t bring the country’s second-largest city to it’s knees.

Drivers, naturally, are unhappy that they can’t get home.
