Start counting your change, Obama's car on e-Bay

Obama's Old Car Selling on eBay for $1 Million
The Chrysler sedan that once belonged to President-elect Obama is being sold on eBay for a cool million. The listing says the car, a blue 2005 Chrysler 300c, can be bought immediately for $1 million or won in an auction. The starting bid is $100,000. Obama owned it from 2004 through 2007 and only put 20,801 miles on it. It's still under the manufacturer's warranty and has an eight-cylinder engine, a sunroof and leather seats...

True American entrepreneurship! You find out you have a hot item and you try to make a buck.

Well now, in the spirit of spreading the wealth around, I think Natasha Brown, the seller, should donate the money to help fight global warming or to defray the cost of the Inauguration or to feed the homeless. I mean it WAS Obama's car.

If the current owner, Natasha Brown, actually gets a million or more for the car she's selling on e-Bay, and keeps it rather than donating it all to an Obama-worthy cause, she'll then be in that nasty wealthy category. She'll find out quickly just how big a cut Uncle Sam takes from her new-found wealth. However, it is good she's selling it now, before Obama potentially implements his tax-the-horrible-capitalists-more-plans.

On a funny note, Natasha Brown said she was surprised Obama drove around in a Dodge Neon, "a little girl's car."
