A car in every garage
Everyone in the world has already linked to this story about McCain’s 13 cars (Obama has one — a hybrid Ford Escape), but I just can’t get over the humor of this sentence: "The McCains also own three 2000 NEV Gem electric vehicles, which are bubble-shaped cars popular in retirement communities."
I think the hypocrisy game is silly and have denounced it at length when aimed at Al Gore, so I won’t be a hypocrite myself — I could give a crap how many cars McCain has. I’m far more interested in the fact that he’s proposing a $5,000 tax credit for purchasers of zero-emissions cars (yay!) and the fact that, well, that’s about it for his plan for reducing transportation oil use (boo!). That and the goofy battery prize.
