Oh, the poor Prius. The world's best-selling hybrid vehicle just can't catch a break. The green icon was used by Tom Buffenbarger, president of the machinists' union (aka the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers) and Hillary Clinton supporter, in an attack on Barack Obama and his supporters.

As MSNBC's video (available after the jump, the quote starts at around minute 9) shows, Buffenbarger said, "Give me a break! I've got news for all the latte-drinking, Prius- driving, Birkenstock-wearing, trust fund babies crowding in to hear him speak! This guy won't last a round against the Republican attack machine. He's a poet, not a fighter." Guess he's got the number of all of us "cashed up greenies." What do Hillary and McCain supporters drive, I wonder?
