    If it looks like a duck, if it …

    Self-conscious we much?

    From reader and blogger C. Dodd Harris, IV, who spotted this vehicle in Louisville, KY:

    Saw this today, seemed like it was up your alley.

    I can relate. I drive a Volvo, wear birkenstocks, am an amateur artist, live part of the year in France and love the “coffee” in Amsterdam. And yet, I am a proud card-carrying member of the VRWC! Go figure!

      I can identify! I have a Subaru (excellent AWD vehicle) and have recently had to wear Birkenstocks because of foot problems.

      However there is a gas guzzling sand dune eating mud covered Jeep in my garage right along side a BMW Z4 which is my answer to class warfare.

    I can relate to this, too – we have a 2005 Prius (proudly dented-now needed for identification in the sea of silver Priuses located here). One of the first in Marin County. We chuckled at the deference we often received in the Whole Foods parking lot back then. My spouse opted for the Prius because he likes stopping for gas less frequently. The unexpected bonus was the carpool sticker made available later that year. We also are old enough to remember the gas station lines in the seventies – so our brains are imprinted with a preference for some degree of gas efficiency.

      A nice, hard-headed Conservative lady of my acquaintance was an early adopter of the Prius. She liked it very much.

      She also owned a 60s era muscle car, a Harley, and a full-sized pick-up.

    Yet another example of how reasoning by bigotry (Prius owner == liberal) doesn’t work. Another popular bigotry (Apple owner == liberal) is pretty funny when you consider Rush is one of the biggest Apple-philes in the nation… 😉
