Mike DeBonis over at the City Paper took this photo at this weekend's Capital Pride Parade:
No front tag? This Hummer had better been licensed in Delaware or Pennsylvania
Yes, that's right, Fenty was sporting a huge Hummer decked out with FENTY signs. I don't know if Fenty was trying to be humorous here, with the whole Hummer double entendre... But I do find it an amusing vehicle of choice. I suppose there must be a law that would prevent him from using his Smartcar, since this is obviously a campaign event. But a Hummer? Really? Oh the irony of the "green" Fenty signs all over this thing.
Wouldn't it have been better to have ridden the bicycle instead? You know, since you're one of the 25 fittest men in the
United States world and all.
The rest of the City Paper piece demonstrating the politicking of the Pride Parade is pretty interesting. It is a highly visible event, and it's no surprise that the politicans are present. Marion "I voted for gay marriage before I voted against it" Barry (D-Ward 8) was not present.
