Far-left hypocrisy #25571

Sometimes you see something that looks somewhat odd and think, nah gotta be missing part of the story somewhere. Then the more you look the more you realize that yes it is as absurd as you first imagined.

Today I had a similar experience. In the parking lot of a shopping plaza in one of the "Change and Hope, Hope and Change" kind of neighborhood. Parked next to me was a Volvo XC90. No surprise there. On this XC90 there were several bumper stickers expressing a plethora of anti-Bush, Obama and most prominently, green themes. No surprise there again.

Forget a second about the irony that a supposed environmentalist drives an SUV with an EPA rating of 15 MPG in the city. That is a standard far-left do as I say not as I doism. Again no surprise there. The surprise however came when I noticed the engine was on but there was nobody in the car. Yessir, the owner left the car running in the parking lot while he/she went shopping. I'm guessing this was so the car would stay cool while she/he was in the store. And this was in the parking lot itself, the car wasn't parked on the curb where someone went in to drop off a letter in a mailbox or anything. It was running when I got there, it was running 10 minutes later when I returned to my car. All that emission sent into the atmosphere killing tens if not hundreds of baby seals so the owner could be cool for the 45 seconds it takes a car's A/C to kick in and cool a car down.

For shame liberal, for shame.
