Naturally, on the day I was out, enviro-loonie Sheryl Crow went insane and started suggesting that people wipe their behinds with a single sheet of toilet paper and wipe their mouths after dinner with their dress sleeves.
Now, you may wonder; how does Crow get by on a single sheet of toilet paper? Well, there’s an obvious answer to that question; she doesn’t. Her nutball suggestion was for people like YOU, not people like her. It’s not different than Al Gore bloviating endlessly about carbon footprints and living in a huge mansion or John Edwards endlessly going on about how unfair it is that some people have more money than others in the “two Americas,” while he has two mansions and gets $400 haircuts.
It’s just more of the same, “this is for thee, not for me” bilge that Barbra Streisand was putting out about clotheslines,
“And don’t forget the time Streisand urged everyone to conserve energy by hanging laundry outside on lines, rather than use electric clothes dryers. But when asked if Streisand herself was using a backyard clothesline, her spokesman said: “She never meant that it necessarily applied to her.”
As Karol noted yesterday in her guest post, we can start paying attention to what Sheryl Crow has to say about environmentalism when she starts getting by on one square of toilet paper per bathroom trip and stops riding around on tour in, “3 tractor trailers, 4 buses and 6 cars.”
