The Green Life: Limbaugh to be Unlikely Green-Car Contestant on Leno

Limbaugh to be Unlikely Green-Car Contestant on Leno

Rush Limbaugh is an unlikely contestant on Leno's Green Car Challenge

Whether or not you're a regular Leno viewer or not, tonight’s Jay Leno Show should be one to remember; Rush Limbaugh will be driving around in a green car.

The infamous conservative radio host will be Leno’s second contestant for the Green Car Challenge, following Drew Barrymore’s effort last week. Limbaugh will race two laps in Ford’s all-electric Focus, which debuts in 2011, in hopes of beating Barrymore's time. The second lap sports cardboard cutouts of Al Gore and Ed Begley, Jr. that contestants must avoid.

The announcement is surprising because of Limbaugh’s anti-green-car tirade in late March. He claimed no one is buying green cars and that people have “given up their individuality for what they think is a larger cause." He also called politics the killer of the auto industry as manufacturers are forced to produce cars just “to keep the Gestapo off their back."

Whether Limbaugh has had a change of heart about green cars or just wants a change of scenery from his radio office, his reaction to the Focus will be interesting to watch.
