Newsday.com: 2008 Candidates Rely on Private Jets
WASHINGTON — A flock of small jets took flight from Washington Thursday, each carrying a Democratic presidential candidate to South Carolina for the first debate of the political season.
For Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, Chris Dodd and Joe Biden, it was wheels up shortly after they voted in favor of legislation requiring that U.S. troops begin returning home from Iraq in the fall.
No one jet pooled, no one took commercial flights to save money, fuel or emissions.
All but Biden, who flew on a private jet, chartered their flights — a campaign expense of between $7,500 and $9,000.
Just in case you were wondering if any of these sycophantic hypocrites were remotely serious about making lifestyle changes to combat global warming.
No, they only want you to make lifestyle changes. They are far too important people to make any concessions to combat the “greatest threat to human civilization”. But as long as you listen to their pontifications, then the world will be a better place.
