I Drink Your Milkshake, Auto Industry!

What a perfect day for Obama to pull the Edwards endorsement out of the hat. Totally blunted Hillary's 'big win' (pfffft) in West Virginia.

This isn't the entire endorsement but it is Obama introducing Edwards in Michigan last night. Edwards is played on stage to Bruce's The Rising.

O. is going to be the coolest effing President ever!


Screw the whiney ass titty baby American Auto Rulers. Crying in this article how any type of governmental change will put serious strain on the auto makers. Good! I just had an American made car with only 55k miles blow up on the side of the road.

They better change and change fast or bye-bye industry.

Fuel economy standards could obliterate the auto industry - May. 14, 2008:

It is unusual for a single individual to hold the fate of an entire industry in his hand - but that will be the case for the next president of the United States.

He or she will have the power to enact unbearably strict fuel economy standards on the cars and trucks sold in half the country. By so doing, he could render vast swaths of the current car and truck lineup obsolete and doom their manufacturers to the scrapyard."

Now THIS is what I'm talking about! 7 years without ever seeing a gas station.

Running on Empty: Cars That Never Need Gas; Sierra Club:

"Dickey says the Rav4EV is the best car he's ever owned. 'My wife commutes in it 40 miles a day, five days a week. We drive it for our weekend outings and it does errands that are too far or too bulky for the bicycle. It has never been tuned up, and I've spent about $50 total on it for maintenance. My wife has not been to a gasoline station in seven years and 70,000 commute miles—not once!'"


I drink your milkshake. (If you haven't seen the movie you need to. Should have won best picture last year).

Are you insane? You would vote for a man with practically no experience who is more left than left?

Crazy beyond explanation.

Insane in the membrane.

I just loves me some of that 30 year in D.C. experience. Smells a little elitist, no?

No you can't, but Yes I Can.

One street at a time, binky. One street at a time.
