Breck Girl: Give Up Your SUVs

Such an absurd suggestion from a clown living in a 28,000-square-foot mansion.

But when you pander for a living, you'll say the dumbest things.

Edwards: Americans should give up their SUVs
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards told a labor group Tuesday that he would ask Americans to make a big sacrifice: their sport utility vehicles.

“I think Americans are actually willing to sacrifice,” Edwards said during a forum held by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. “One of the things they should be asked to do is drive more fuel efficient vehicles.”

The former North Carolina senator was asked specifically if he would tell them to give up their SUVS, he said, “Yes.”
So what would everyone do with their vehicles after he tells them to get rid of them? What will he tell us to drive? What about those with large families who can't afford two vehicles in order to get around?

What will he tell us to do then?

I guess back in in 2001, he didn't have any problem with people driving SUVs.
Back in spring 2001, when I spent two days in an SUV with Edwards driving the back roads of his state and going to town meetings, he was already honing his populist I’m-the-son-of-a-millworker speech.
I'd like to know how he gets around these days.

UPDATE: Damn, didn't take long for this one to blow up in his face.
