Hot air

In a Comment is Free post today, Polly Toynbee writes:

Apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger drives his own Humvee in San Francisco - but it runs on hyrodrogen - so size may not always matter.

It is nice to see a source, particularly as it makes the debunking that much easier.  According to the Forbes article that Polly refers to:

Hummer's parent, General Motors (nyse: GM - news - people ), owns the H2H

So it's not his own.  Neither does he drive his own three (non-hydrogen) Humvees that often, according to AP:

Since the election, Schwarzenegger has reduced his fleet from seven Hummers to three, and he rarely drives any of them, spokeswoman Terri Carbaugh said.

'My Hummers are now in the garage, because I get driven by the CHP all the time,' the governor said.
