Republican with a brain?

Is there such an animal anymore?

Yahoo News wrote:
U.S. Rep. Allen West, a Florida Republican, has never been any great fan of President Barack Obama, but took to Facebook today to answer the question of what, if anything, he could praise about the president. His answer included a complaint that thanks to rising gas prices, it now costs $70 to fill up his 2008 Hummer H3. Is it really a good idea to use your Hummer to argue gas prices are too high?

Not in this case, apparently.

70 $ to fill a Hummer? Fucking hell fuel prices are far too low! It costs me more than that to fill my Audi A3 (45 Liter tank about 11 Gallons)

Definitely lower than over here. Assuming 95 octane gas (petrol), it would cost roughly $180 to fill that thing here.

$120 minimum for that tank with bog-standard fuel here.

WASHINGTON—Saying the now critically endangered species of politician is at high risk for complete extinction within the next 10 years, Beltway-area conservationists announced plans Monday for a new captive breeding program designed to save moderate Republicans.

According to members of the Initiative to Protect the Political Middle (IPPM), centrist Republicans, who once freely roamed the nation calling for both economic deregulation and a return to Reagan-era tax rates on the wealthy, are in dire need of protection, having lost large portions of their natural terrain to the highly territorial Evangelical and Tea Party breeds.
