Here In My Car Part 2
More from the Deseret News article on public officials and their cars. Dell Loy Hansen: His explanation was the most ridiculous of them all. He bought a Benz so he could fit into SLC where people "wear their wealth". Riiiiight. Move over Vegas, here comes gaudy SLC. Sounds like Hansen has a bit of lingering guilt over his obscene wealth. "I just wanted to fit in". You can't buy class, man. Senator Orrin Hatch: "Um, I've been looking, actually, for, um, a hybrid, yeah. I was going to trade in my Cadillac next week. It's true, I promise." Governor Jon Huntsman Jr.: A "flexible- fuel" suburban? When was the last time his driver filled it with ethanol. That's what I thought. Carolyn Tanner Irish: A Subaru Outback. Let me fill out her profile: Avenues resident, loves dogs. Stereotypes are fun! Senate President John Valentine: This one took me by complete surprise. U President Michael Young: "My wife made me buy it". Classic.
