What does a Politician’s Hot Air do to the environment?

Does anyone think before they spout these days?

A lawmaker in Washington State was responding to a local bike store owner who was upset about a proposal that some new bicycle purchases would be subject to a new tax.
In his response, Rep. Ed Orcutt claimed “the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider.” It seems that those damn bikers contribute to climate change with their heavy breathing.

Next on the agenda? A new fee on all Drive-In Theater patrons.
