Big Brother will be -driving- your car by 2020.

Old and busted: mass speed control of cars. New sweetness: COMPLETE control of cars.

A Pennsylvania congressman caught a cutting-edge ride to the airport on Wednesday.

Rep. Bill Shuster, a Republican from Altoona, made a 33-mile trip from Cranberry Township to Pittsburgh International Airport at about 11 a.m. in a computer-operated car.

Wow, how high tech! Kinda gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "computer crash" don't it? 

But hey, that's just me. What did Bill Shuster, Republican from Altoona have to say about it?

Shuster said he can now imagine a future where such vehicles enter the mainstream, potentially reducing accidents, fatalities and congestion on roads. But there's also a military angle.

"It's going to be great for our military to able to send vehicles into combat without people in them," Shuster said.

The comments are awesome, as you might imagine.

I like how he immediately talks about using it in war.

I can hardly wait until Obozo's sons get their hands on one. The first fully automated drive-by shooting is one step closer!

 I want a "road rage" option on the control menu of my automatic car.
 Wow...A congressman just sitting there not doing anything. Imagine that.

 That's a great Idea. Now Al Qaeda can hack into the control system and kill us all conveniently on our morning commute.

Personally I think this will be a great thing for law enforcement.  Cops will be able to have your own car trap you, taser you unconscious and drive you to the police station without the arresting officer ever leaving the donut shop.
