Below is a quote from a commenter on the conservative? site Pajamas Media.  He is responding to a dumb post suggesting cyclists put out more CO2 by breathing than do cars driving.  His comment has little to do with the cycling breathing post but rather is a response to the mention of  the transportation secretary Lahood? and his encouragement for people to ride bikes more.   The reasons for the original post don't really matter.  What fascinates me is how you could substitute the name Lahood and put in any democratic leaders name and it is the same critique the right gives over and over and over.  It is about as shallow of a critique as calling the new shy pretty girl at school a stuck up bitch. 

"Lahood is a perfect example of this administration. He is a radical ideologue with almost zero real-world experience, an overweening arrogance about his own self-perceived brilliance, a need for adulation from the cloistered academic “enlightened elite’”- and a boundless contempt, bordering on actual hatred, for the American people, or even the human race generally."

Link to the article.  The pic is what I am guessing the commenter looks like.
