I was wrong. In spite of indications to the contrary, the GMC salesman blogger defending your right to suck-up fuel and clog the roadways with oversized trucks didn't have a change of heart about hybrids. In his latest anonymous posting on the Commercial Auto Dealers web site, the same person who warned us about the dangers of hybrids (so quiet we'll all fall asleep behind the wheel) is "irked" about environmentalists who "who think hybrids are God's gift to humankind" because of "Al Gore's half-truths and theories." And he's specifically "annoyed" with those of you who've commented about his views on trucks vs. hybrids. Just to make sure you understand where he's coming from, he states "I'm sticking with my truck and I'm not going to feel guilty about it." Neither should anyone else "feel guilty about going to your local GMC truck dealer and getting the biggest, baddest truck you can find and driving it for no reason at all." Gas prices be damned. After all, "when [hybrid owners] need a tow, the guys with the big trucks are the ones they're going to call first."

    Buying a big truck/SUV right now is dumb for two related reasons: 1. If gas keeps going up, you won't be able to drive it. 2. When gas gets high enough that you can't drive it, it will not be worth anything except as an enormous paperweight. Think about all the American families paying $500 a month for a car they can't drive because they can't put gas in it, and they can't sell because it isn't worth anything since nobody else can afford to drive it either. Even "rich" people aren't immune to it; witness the raft of celebrity mcmansion foreclosures in the news recently...

    I am thankful to GM for paying guys like this. If he and his friends keep it up, I'll be able to get a 4 year old Yukon Denali for $10K pretty soon.

    For the first two comments - I didn't notice a misspelled word in the post in question. Which words were misspelled? I did, however, notice that one of the people criticizing the spelling spelled the word "misspell" wrong.
