Cash for Clunkers

Cash for Clunkers is (was) a success.

CNN.com reports that:

"The most popular car being purchased under the program, according to the White House? The Ford Focus, which boasts up to 35 mpg."
While our clunker-upgraded ride doesn't get quite that high combined MPG, I'm glad that people are choosing to take fuel efficiency more seriously, despite the guy in the article who got a "crew-cab Silverado, four-door" under the program.

It's interesting that the reporter chose to lead off with a counter-example (fuel-guzzling truck) to the government presented data. Seems like a sign of conservative bias rather than left-wing bias.
