A column in this morning’s Washington Post makes the common mistake of thinking that something must be true if you want it to be badly enough — in this case, that SUVs are the mark of vanity, ego, dilettantism, etc. Debunking statistics included from the Census Bureau.
I am not a fan of George Bush, but I have finally had it with the bullshit blind hatred on the Left.
