in a huff(ington)
If you drive an SUV, you support terrorists. So says Arianna Huffington. She's on the Sean Hannity radio show right now, basically calling Hannity a terrorist.
Hannity is asking her questions about her lifestyle, how many times she has flown on private jets, what kind of fuel consumption her home needs.
She has avoided every question so far.
Hannity has a point. He said to Huffington, lead by example. Get a smaller house that does not need so much heat.
She keeps talking about inspiring people to change the way they live. Hannity asks her about changing the way she lives.
She answers his questions with questions. She avoids answering. She accuses SUV users of supporting terrorism, she says we should get different cars. When Hannity asks her if she is going to stop taking private jets, she changes her tune and says we should get rid of our SUVs because we put our children in danger when we drive them around in one.
I drive an SUV. I do not support terrorism. The two are not mutually inclusive.
You want us to stop depending on foreign oil? Fine. Oh, but you don't want us to drill in Alaska.
Don't tell me how to live, what kind of lifestyle I should have unless you live naked out in the woods, eating nuts and berries and eschewing every single comfort of modern day life. Oil is not just used to run cars, you know.
I just love when rich people tell us how to live. They sit out there in their humungous houses, get picked up limos, heat their enormous swimming pools and then turn around and tell us to scrap our Explorers. Please.
Put up or shut up.
