Evil evil bicyclists

2010-08-04 22:46:30.223811+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Colorado gubernatorial candidate front-runner Dan Maes thinks bicycling is a UN plot:

Maes said in a later interview that he once thought the mayor's efforts to promote cycling and other environmental initiatives were harmless and well-meaning. Now he realizes "that's exactly the attitude they want you to have."

"This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said.

He added: "These aren't just warm, fuzzy ideas from the mayor. These are very specific strategies that are dictated to us by this United Nations program that mayors have signed on to."

When did politics turn into a sad parody of wacko AM talk radio?

Probably about the time the second politician got into politics, since with just one, there's no opponent to need smearing.

I heard that Larry Page likes to ride his bicycle from Moffat Field to Google HQ after landing the Google 767. There's proof that Google's gone evil.
