patriotic drivers

Who would those be? Those who drive smaller cars that use less gas and therefore put less of a strain on our need for oil? Or those who drive a vehicle that gets 11 miles a gallon? Apparently the latter:
“‘When I turn on the TV, I see wall-to-wall Humvees, and I’m proud,’ said Sam Bernstein, a 51-year-old antiquities dealer who lives in Marin County, Calif., and drives a Hummer H2, an S.U.V. sibling of the military Humvee.”
And the war?
“‘It definitely helps,’said Clotaire Rapaille, a consumer research consultant for G.M. and other automakers. ‘I told them in Detroit, `Put four stars on the shoulder of the Hummer and it will sell better.’ The Hummer is a car in uniform. Right now we are in a time of uncertainty, and people like strong brands with basic emotions.'”

    Oh my god, those guys sound like morons. I can’t stand those stupid oafish humvees. 11 mpg should be against the law.

    The environment will be grateful. Thank God for American patriots.
