Wiener of the Week

When I read something like this, I literally feel like my head is going to explode.

A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000.

You're telling me that, in the midst of a financial downturn in which millions of Americans have lost their jobs, our government is loaning that lard ass fraud Al Gorebells over a half billion dollars to create a car that only the very wealthy can afford? And the car will be built in Finland, NOT the USA?

Words fail me. At least, words that aren't of the four-letter variety.

DOE, for loaning money to a multi-millionaire to create a product for the ultra-wealthy built in a country other than the US in the midst of an economic downturn, you're the Wiener of the Week.
