Al Gore JR's speeding antics prove great publicity for Prius

Comments (1)

al%20gore%20arrest%20prius.JPGCynics everywhere were rubbing their hands with glee when Al Gore's son was caught speeding at over 100 mph with a cocktail of drugs on board, as they hoped to tarnish Gore's whiter-than-white (or should that be greener than green?) reputation.

But by far the biggest response to the story has not been "let's get at Al Gore", but rather "A Prius can go THAT fast?" Gore III, 24, was driving a Toyota Prius at the time of the incident, and it has since become clear that public perception of hybrid vehicles was in a head-on collision with the truth about just how powerful and speedy they can be.
