But America's Chief Ambulance Chaser, John Edwards, the mind-bogglingly wealthy trial lawyer who is much smarter than the rest of us yahoos combined, has gone one better, preaching virtual economic suicide to a cadre of union brothers:
The former North Carolina senator told a forum by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, yesterday he thinks Americans are willing to sacrifice.Wonder if he consulted the UAW before firing off this helpful hint. Ah, who needs Michigan's electoral votes anyway when you've got guys like this backing your candidacy?
Edwards says Americans should be asked to drive more fuel efficient vehicles. He says he would ask them to give up SUVs.
Of course, like the Goracle and everyone else, Edwards' sage advice doesn't apply at the Edwards compound a residence whose square footage is approximately the same as that of Rhode Island. Observing an aerial shot of the compound, what to our wondering eyes does appear?
The circled vehicles in the photo above (click the image for a larger view) are, you guessed it, SUVs, each and every one. But before you go jumping to conclusions, remember, Edwards is a Democrat and is smarter and better than us. So we'd better listen up, and trade our own SUVs for mopeds. John NEEDS his. Besides, he can afford to purchase enough offsetting carbon units to otherwise redeem his sense of virtue.
We hope the electorate is wising up to clueless, politically tone-deaf boobs like this one.
