When photo-ops attack, Part 2

Photo from Washington Post photog Ricky Carioti

House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert took a ride (supposedly back to his office) in a hydrogen vehicle to demonstrate his "commitment" (and I use that term loosely) to alternative energy sources. The problem is that he only went about a block before he got out of the enviro-friendly vehicle and stepped into his pre-positioned (and armored... and gas-guzzling) SUV to take him the rest of the way to his office.

I'm sure other Congressional types (including Democrats) did the same thing, there just isn't photgraphic proof (by a LOT of photographers) of them doing it.

Wonder how Hastert and his people will spin this one?
