Hybrid; worst of both worlds

What is it about hybrid cars that brings out such ignorance and bile??
Some Massachusetts columnist named David Baumann has some fresh new disinformation about hybrid cars. He states that hybrids are just too dang complicated for an American driver, that they actually get 25 mpg, and people are either being tricked into buying them, or buying them as some kind of political statement. I wonder which party I got enrolled in when I bought mine? I should check on that, I might want to vote in the primaries.
I don't mind that he doesn't like them, he's not required to. I do mind that such a bizarre mashup of rumor, misinformation, and dark fantasy can be presented to the public under the guise of being news.
