First, Florida in August. Second, collective effort among Republicans. Third, making a "green" effort when you've chosen a time & place that ensure mega-use of a/c. Fourth, Tea Partiers voluntarily getting sweaty to ... what, mitigate their carbon footprint?

This could go on endlessly -- and they're all hilarious.

I'm wondering how many republicans will actually ride the thing:-) Personally, I would love to have one!
