Once again, here's Digby, doing it better than most could even hope.
Really, read it. She is one of the best bloggers around.
Word. I thought she handled the ridiculous Clinton supporters well who still to this day, won't deal with the obvious race-baiting Hil pulled in MI and PA. The McTeleprompter campaign pulled this outta her playbook, with the idiotic "race card" bullshit.
What kind of car should George W Bush drive?
Answer: an electric (of course), but one with lithium-ion batteries in the hope that some of the lithium would work its way into George's cranium and have a tranquilizing affect. :^)
And another thing:
The current state-of-the-art automotive battery, the Ni-mh, were installed in Toyota Rav-4, the GM's EV-1 (not hybrids), and were lasting over 100,000 miles of use. In other words, this battery is ready to go NOW, and we shoudn't have to wait for Lithium-ion which are as yet unperfected for use in cars.
Lithium-ion weigh less than Ni-mh, but the weight should be considered an advantage rather than a drawback. The battery weight can lower center-of-gravity to improve stability and handling, a perfect safety feature especially applicable to top-heavy roll-prone SUVs and any car.
You know what's funny? Chevron Corp owns the patents to automotive Ni-mh battery technology.
