Talking the talk

Silly rabbit, energy conservation is for teh proles:

To mark Earth Day, President Obama traveled to Iowa Wednesday to visit a plant that manufactures the towers for wind turbines. Mr. Obama touted the need for energy independence and warned, "All of us will have to use energy more wisely."

But a reporter with CBS calculated that the president's flights on Air Force One and Marine One consumed at least 9,116 gallons of fuel, which he could have been saved by giving his Earth Day speech at the White House. Of course, there aren't any wind turbines at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

That's okay, though, because I'm sure the carbon pumped into Mother Earth's fragile atmosphere by Obama's photo op was offset by his pure, radiant goodness. And pollution-eating unicorns. Yeah.
