Los Angeles - The fast track program in motoring skills saw Nevada Senator Harry Reid graduate magna cum laude to take the School's Top Gun prize aides said today.
Reports this morning claim the course 'may have saved his life' following a multi-car pile-up on the northbound carriageway of Interstate 15.
Reid was behind the wheel of what Political Ticking Time Bomb News Illustrated has described as 'a caravan' - possibly a souped-up Airstream.
Witnesses said it's a similar vehicle to one that Reid drove when graduating from Kerry Kennedy's advanced driving course for edge-of-reality Capitol Hill drivers.
The School has been going strong for over 40 years as a family tribute to Uncle Ted Kennedy.
The late Senator from Massachusetts honed his personal navigation techniques back in '69 during a test drive of a submersible land/sea vehicle at Martha's Vineyard's Chappaquiddick Island.
His 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 subsequently became the inspiration behind the creation of the Rinspeed sQuba land/sea limo that debuted in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Shagged Me.
This morning a spokesperson for the Kerry Kennedy School of Advanced Driving Skills denied reports that the college's new fleet of luxury 'hybrid' cars runs on a revolutionary 'green' mixture of ethanol and industrial grade Zolpidem - the chief constituent in 'Ambien' sleeping pills.
Officially the six-car pile-up is Harry Reid's first.
