Supporting the Navy is one thing, but a climate change denier? And you call yourself a Prius.

"A year and a half ago, I gave a talk at Stanford University at a conferenced aimed at donors sponsored by the Hoover Institution, and there, before my talk, I had the privilege of listening to John B. Taylor – who mentioned in passing that he had briefed Sarah Palin when she was the Republican vice-presidential nominee and that he had found her a quick study. My bet is that she has a kitchen cabinet of sorts and that John Taylor is a member. If so, quietly in the background while no one was paying attention, Governor Palin has been filling in the considerable gaps in her education. I suspect that we have not heard the last of the lady."

I love the GlobalClimateScam sticker on a Prius. People think that if you don't believe in global warming you are anti-environment or pro-pollution. It is absolutely unheard of that someone could believe in preserving the environment without buying into all the 'Green Propaganda.'
Hey, I drove a Prius, and don't subscribe to the scam as well. I just don't have the habit of putting my political view on my bumpers.
People buys these sorts of thing for one of two reasons … smug or gadget
This poor soul is going for the gadget
Prius is an excellent car. It is sadly overpriced in its class, but if you value convenience and practicality, then why the heck not. People buy overpriced cars all the time, in all categories.
