Eco-phony Arnold tools around in gas-guzzling Mercedes SLS AMG

According to the Daily Mail:

“He has been seen enjoying a number of dates with a mystery blonde in recent weeks but on Thursday Arnold Schwarzenegger was indulging in his first love — his cars. 

“The 65-year-old was seen taking his Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG for a spin with a friend in Brentford, Los Angeles.” [They mean Brentwood.]

What an eco-phony. As governor, Arnold strapped on the state the jobs-killing AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.

And SB 375, which Arnold signed in 2008, forces people into tiny high-rise apartments and onto public transportation.

Yet he’s tooling around town in an SLS AMG! And he lives in the massive “Arnold Compound” in Brentwood. While his recently divorced wife, Maria, herself an eco-fanatic, lives in another massive compound somewhere.

The Mercedes SLS AMG gets gas mileage of 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.

Compare that to a Prius Plug-In, which gets 50 mpg city and 90 mpg highway — 4.5 times as much per gallon.

If Arnold were not a hypocrite as massive as his steroid-ballooned biceps once were, he would drive a Prius, not an SLS AMG. Better yet, he would follow his own SB 375 edict and take public transportation — or walk.
