Good morning on this W

This car in this picture has lithium ion batteries in it. Similar to the batteries we will use in our cars, but ours are better. The batteries in this car cost the owner $186.00 per battery. There are 102 batteries in it. He took his car to Sacramento to get it converted. Ours will cost a fraction of what he paid, making ours conversions much more affordable than his.
I got some good news this morning. One of the big grants I applied to from the Department of Energy is now being processed in its second step. We passed the first test and now on to the second step. I am confident we will pass this one too so we may get this grant yet this month.
Time to tell you some things about Idiot America. This a book by Charlie Pierce I read about a month ago. A fellow liberal like me there is much in this book to admire and like.Some good examples of Idiots in America are:
1) how the Republicans reacted to Terri Shivo.
2) W taking us to war in Iraq.
3) Republican attitude toward global warning.
4) Republican attitude toward the fact of evolution.
5) In Missouri, there is a Creation Museum showing dinosaurs with saddles so kids can ride them, representing real life. Of course those kooks believe the world is only six thousand years old so humans lived with dinosaurs. What a crock. Don't get me on a rant on this topic. Suffice to say, dinosaurs lived for 125 million years, ending about 65 million years ago. We came upon the scene in some form or another about 3 million years ago.
6) Here is what Charlie Pierce says about Sarah Palin: "Palin's nomination was an act of faith by Idiot America almost unsurpassed in political history. Her speech at the Republican convention was a long sneer…She claims foreign policy experience because Alaska is so close to Russia.”
Why don't you think of some other examples of Idiot America? I can come up with one from last weekend. One of the opponents of health care reform got in to a fight with a supporter. The supporter bit off the finger of the opponent. They took the opponent to the hospital where Medicare paid for reattaching the finger. This guy is the latest example of an idiot in America.
