Prius-driving among the Republicans at the Reagan Library

Sheryl and I attended the Republican Jewish Coalition dinner at the Reagan Library last night.  The speeches at these events are usually pretty dreary but they had three good ones by Steve Poizner, Dennis Prager and the very youthful Josh Mandel – an ex-Marine now Ohio politician who is a coming super star for the Republicans. Kudos to their California head honcho Larry Greenfield.

Not surprisingly, however, our Prius was the only hybrid I could see in the parking lot for the event (attended by 600 people).  Still a lot of Lexus SUVs (not the hybrid type) among the upscale Republican crowd.  Well, tough cheese for them.  I got 57 mpg on my way home! (It’s about 30 miles from the library to my house.)
