Moron Washington Politics

This is the kind of political idiocy that will bite you on the bum every time:

Hastert and other members of Congress drove off in the Hydrogen-Fueled cars only to switch to their official cars to drive ... the few block[s] back to the U.S. Capitol.

UPDATE: Ian of Expose the Left has the video of Brit Hume's FOX News report, which exposes even more gas-guzzling hypocrisy, mostly from the Democrats.
After gathering at a Capitol Hill gas station yesterday to condemn President Bush for rising gas prices — some Democratic senators hopped into cars for the one-block trip back to their offices. According to The Washington Post, California's Barbara Boxer got into a Chrysler LHS, and New York's Chuck Schumer hopped into a Hyundai Elantra.

Similarly after voting on the Senate floor yesterday — Democrats Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Evan Bayh of Indiana, and Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts all got into cars for the trip back to their offices — across the street.

(With apologies to Brainster for the title.)
