Obama regime has NEVs!

Disclaimer: Video not up to Blue Gal standards

And now we present another mystery pretty much solved, which is what we do for a living here at Fried Green al-Qaedas.

If you're like me (and I'm assuming that you are), you probably couldn't wait to visit House Minority Whip Eric Cantor's web site to check out his new "fun, short" victory video. While it doesn't measure up to my admittedly high standard of "fun", it does quite successfully meet the international standard for "short". I'm guessing that we can thank the lavish expense of licensing an Aerosmith song for that blessing. ('Back in the Saddle', doncha know, cause that's the image the GOP is going to run with, and if you don't believe it, they'll tell you again.)

Stimulus bill, let's see... Unprecedented wasteful spending, check... Written in secret, check... GOP fought for you, check... Millions for golf carts, check? Okay, that last one left me a little confused.

Thankfully, for every head-scratching Republican factoid, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation at, which took a real close look at page 96 of the stimulus bill.

For capital expenditures and necessary expenses of acquiring motor vehicles with higher fuel economy, including: hybrid vehicles; neighborhood electric vehicles; electric vehicles; and commercially-available, plug-in hybrid vehicles, $300,000,000.

"The Democrats thought they could fool you," Town Hall explains, by using the innocuous term 'neighborhood electrical vehicles', refusing to even use the industry standard acronym NEVs. And much as Soylent Green is people, NEVs is golf carts!

There you go. Glad to clear that up for you. A lot of golf in the Dems' future. Things really are worse than you ever could have imagined, but at least you have the GOP back in the saddle, fighting for you.
