Not Getting It

Saw a bumber sticker this past week on a Prius. It said: "Al Qaeda Hates This Car". As if buying a car that uses less petroleum products fuels the terrorists' desire to kill us.

Here's a clue, bud. Al Qaeda doesn't hate the car, they hate the driver. For no other reason than the fact that you're free to buy and drive a Prius if that's your choice. But they don't hate you any more than the driver in the car next to you just because yours happens to be a hybrid.

Well, considering the number of cars they blow up, maybe they do hate cars.

"He must hate bottles! Stay away from the bottles!" -- to paraphrase Steve Martin in The Jerk . .

Or rather, -- that should be "stay away from the cans!"

Well shouldn't we be doing things to make the terrorists hate us less? I thought the liberal meme was that it was our fault the terrorists hate us.

If it's Priuses (Prii?) they hate then I don't mind throwing them all in the sea. And we can bring back 1957 Chevies!
