I've burnished my Green credentials

If Obama is right, one day this vehicle will be powered by unicorn farts.
Regular Flares readers may recall that, since the 2010 elections, I am a member of the Green Party. I joined the party because I noticed that environmentalist muckity-mucks like Al Gore got to live in huge houses while the proles were destined to a life in hovels, biking to work and dining on gruel. Since that doesn't appeal to me, I decided that discretion was the better part of valor and joined the Greens so's I can cash in on the sweet life. 

It has occurred to me that now that I am a mover and shaker in the Green Party I probably ought to burnish my Green credentials a little. Thus, when the Flares Mobile started getting long in the tooth I decided to Go Green. That's it above, with its spiffy new Green paint job and renamed the Flares Eco-Mobile.  

I repainted the car a few weeks ago and then, as Solyndra unfolded, I realized I was still but a newbie to this Eco scam business. If I had been on my toes surely I could have tapped into 10 or 20 million dollars of stimulus money to do some testing of my new Eco-Mobile. 

Hmmm... I wonder if it is too late to drop Van Jones an email?
