We just watched Al Gore, former Veep and teller of inconvenient truths, talking some truth to power today in front of Congress, where he had a very important message for the politicos: "Don't single out cars and trucks...it's only a slice of the problem." He then made clear he thinks we shouldn't expect automakers alone to be expected to solve global warming. Gore then walked out and hopped into his Cadillac Escalade with baby seal-hide interior...yes, the one with performance suede inserts, side-seat bolstering and runs on straight crude oil. OK maybe not, but it's a helluva lot more funny than him jumping into a Prius. Although, to tell you the truth, that'd be pretty funny, because he's a pretty big guy.
