The Attorney General will now be driven around in a Honda Civic hybrid.
According to the article, Dick Blumenthal claims that he asked DAS for a hybrid a number of times, but DAS says that never happened. Regardless, he will now be ditching the Crown Vic.
Blumenthal modestly pointed out that "Of all the distinctions that I have as a constitutional officer, the first to drive a hybrid will be a noteworthy one."
Indeed it will. Blumenthal is a skinny man but he leaves a gigantic carbon butt-print. He apparently clocks in 7,000 miles per month. As we all know, when he isn't driving to court, he is hoofing it all over the state to congratulate garden clubs and award Cub Scouts their wolf badges. Those miles build up.
And now, he will drive an automobile commensurate with the dignity he commands... a NyQuil cup with tires.
Should the vehicle need a lube job, Blumenthal can save the state further funds by rubbing his slickered scalp all over the car's engine block.
