You know that unhip, unhot, unhappening vehicle all the gazillionaire left-wing celebs think we should drive instead of our SUVs? Yes, the Prius. Well, it turns out the Prius may be “nice” to the environment, but it’s not so nice to humans. The hybrid car is under investigation by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, which got a whopping 33 reports of the car stalling at speeds of up to 65 miles per hour. Now I know what they meant by, “Oh, what a feeling to drive Toyota!” Well, if Cameron Diaz, Larry and Laurie David, and Arianna Huffington want to risk their lives, we won’t stop them. But as for us, let’s stick to the SUVs, and explore ANWR so we can get the oil we need and not rely on the Saudis.
