Jackass of the day

I was reading BikePortland.org this morning and came across this gem:

WA legislator: "Cyclists' increased respiration" leads to air pollutionorcuttlead

"A high-ranking Washington legislator has added insult to injury in his support for a bike tax by claiming that bicycling is not environmentally friendly because people who ride bikes pollute the air when they breathe."

Wow.  Well, hey if we're tackling emissions, we should probably start taking a closer look at a child and puppy tax... Horses too, they've got big lungs.

Congratulations, Rep. Ed Orcutt, I can't imagine I'll come across a bigger jackass today, so you win.
