Outrage of the day

Presidential candidate John Edwards spoke today about environmental issues. He thinks Americans should be willing to make "sacrifices." Quote: "Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards told a labor group that he would ask Americans to make a big sacrifice: their sport utility vehicles. "I think Americans are actually willing to sacrifice," Edwards said Tuesday 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."

Excellent, Senator! first. How about that 28,000 square foot, BTU-guzzling house of yours? Willing to sacrifice that? "I have no apologies whatsoever for what I've done with my life," Edwards said when asked about his mansion.

Exactly right, Senator. Many Americans have no apologies to make for their lives, either. And they don't need you lecturing them about their lives, especially when you're not willing to "sacrifice", either.
