This quote from this article cracks me up:
Lawmakers with automakers in their districts led the fight to defeat Waxman’s proposal, arguing it was backdoor way to require U.S. mini-vans, sport utility vehicles and pick-up trucks to improve their fuel efficiency.
It just blows my mind that as oil prices rise and we spend billions going to war to protect our oil interests that these dumb fucks still blatantly and explicitly pander to the auto industry. How dare we try to improve fuel efficiency — fucking commies.
I don’t get how these losers can keep their jobs. They are bought and paid for by the auto and oil industries. It is shameful.
