Rhonda's Political Week In Review 12-26-2021


According to Vice News - Of Course Joe Manchin Drives a Maserati

The moderate West Virginia Democrat was caught in the luxury vehicle while surrounded by climate change activists Thursday morning, according to Politico. Reminder: He hails from a state where 16 percent of the population is impoverished and the average household earns far less each year than what a Maserati is worth.

    Well, IMHO, Joe deserves a Maserati...
    just Google 'complaints about Maserati'. Apparently, nobody buys a SECOND Maserati..
    As a car fanatic, I had never been impressed by any Maserati's looks...
    The first one I had ever viewed in person was the one owned by some deceased Vegas star, and was now in an 'auto museum' Las Vegas.
    I was totally confused, as all the bodywork and styling cues reminded me of ANY 2000's era 4 door BUICK, right down to the 'holes in the fender'...
    Why buy such a car? Paying a PREMIUM PRICE for a PSEUDO-BUICK?
    Perhaps that is the intent of the 'scam'--- as many of Manchins' constituents are so dirt-poor and poorly educated, they merely see the car as a 'Buick'- as made in the USA, therefore, he is 'one of us'--NOT!
    A working-class friend of mine, bought an early Porsche 911 Targa with inheritance money, and whenever he took his car to 'the wrong side of the tracks', all the girls would rag him about his 'funny little foreign car'. OTOH, when over in the 'tony' part of town, the girls would 'come a runnin'...
