Playing at being green

Recently-elected Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) wanted to promote electric car technology. So he figured out a way to drive an electric car from his district to his swearing-in at the Capitol in D.C. Unfortunately, the 300 mile distance is out of the driving range of the electric car. Hmmm, what to do? Well, Massa had it figured out:

Massa drove one fuel cell car while a hybrid SUV towing an additional SUV followed along. Once he got half way, he switched to new fuel cell car. The empty fuel cell was then towed back by the first SUV. As he continued on his journey, the second SUV followed. Once Massa arrived in DC, the second SUV then towed the second fuel cell car back to NY.

This green wannabe took 4 cars to drive 300 miles. But, you know, he REALLY cares, you know, about the environment . . .

This guy's capacity for theater combined with obliviousness portends for a successful career in politics.

Did you really think that the stoopid was leaving D.C. next week?
