Bicycling: Macho and Patriotic

I was listening to the podcast of Majority Report today, and I came across this tidbit from Rachel Maddow:

We ought to be making riding a bicycle the most macho possible thing you can do right now. It’s the only thing that George Bush is doing right now that I actually support, is riding a bike. Because It’s the most patriotic thing you can do right now is to get our country out of Saudi Arabia’s pants so we can deal with something other than our energy crisis.

Today, I am macho, I am patriotic, and I am helping us to ride out of Saudi Arabia’s stinky britches!
