Hank for Congress? Maybe not yet.
So I was at the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper River Revival tonight - a fine event, if you missed it - and I saw something that disturbed me. That something was a Ford Excursion wearing a Hank Johnson logo (on the door) parked in the lot. Let me repeat that: An Excursion, destroyer of worlds, parked at one of the year's larger gatherings of environmental activists, sporting the logo of someone who claims to support "clean air, clean water, and green space protection". This is a congressional campaign, not the irony olympics, all right? Morton Brilliant has already won that gold medal anyway.

I'll say this plainly: Hank, you're a Democrat. You support (?) environmental causes. Why did you think having a genuine AEV (Anti Evnironment Vehicle) would be the right way to sell your campaign?

I've said it before: I'm glad I don't live in the 4th district. Hank, why don't you just lose the Excursion and quit forking American dollars into foreign oil?

P.S. Both Hank and Cynthia's websites leave a bit to be desired...

Nothing wrong with a Ford. Doesn't the YDG platform say this country was "built on the backs of labor?" I'm glad Hank buys American and supports our union workers. Sign me up. I bet Mr. Johnson would try to save our Hapeville Ford plant.

Nobody is saying there. I have a Ford Focus as a matter of fact that gets pretty decent gas mileage. I think Benson's point is buy American cars that have better gas mileage if you care anything at all about the environment. Or about this Mr. Johnson can buy the Ford hybrid escape if he wants a SUV and buy Amercian. There that is almost compromise isn't?
