If this isn't instructive of how seriously the Republicans take the "War on Terror"™ and the horrible economic situation that their policies have put us in, I don't know what does. The RK blog found this lovely gem. On Friday's Fourth of July parade in Scottsville, VA, Democratic congressional nominee Tom Perriello threw candies at bystanders while riding in a trailer pulled by a bio-diesel fueled tractor.
That's right, he rode in a Hummer H3:
The average price of gas in Virginia is $4.02. Tom Perriello has come out advocating that this country needs to be energy independent within a generation. Congressman Goode talks a lot about alternative energy. What were the Republicans in the Scottsville parade driving?
That looks like a Hummer H3. An H3 gets about 13 miles per gallon in city driving. Rep Goode also walked around followed by a red PT Cruiser.
It's easy to talk about gas prices and alternative energy, but the Scottsville Parade showed who is serious about the price of gas, and who doesn't seem to get it.
