Kerry's Other Gas Guzzler

Today I learned that friend of the environment, John Waffles Kerry, has more than just the fleet of gas guzzling SUVs at his disposal. MSNBC has a story about Kerry's 42 foot powerboat, Scaramouche. Here is an excerpt:
Something else that might confound his political image is the Scaramouche’s fuel efficiency. Speedboats are gas hogs. The ... the Scaramouche probably gets less than one [mpg] (The Scaramouche, according to the Boston Herald, is a Hinckley powerboat. A 44-foot version, according to, has a fuel capacity of 500 gallons, and a range of 340 nautical miles, or .68 MPG. Hinckley no longer makes the 42-foot boat.)

Kerry is a strong advocate of energy independence and raising the corporate average fuel economy standards (CAFÉ) for cars. According to the Associated Press, Kerry supports increasing existing fuel economy standards to 36 mpg by 2015 in order to reduce the nation's dependence on foreign oil supplies. But there’s nothing comparable to CAFÉ for boats, no "boat fuel economy rules."
Full Story
So we are all supposed to pitch in to help the environment, right? But apparently this doesn't apply to a certain wealthy Senators from Massachusetts who rides around in a convoy of SUVs and a $700,000.00 speed boat that gets less than a mile per gallon.
