A flock of small jets took flight from Washington Thursday, each carrying a Democratic presidential candidate to South Carolina for the first debate of the political season. . . . No one jet pooled, no one took commercial flights to save money, fuel or emissions.

All but Biden, who flew on a private jet, chartered their flights — a campaign expense of between $7,500 and $9,000.

Couldn’t they have “jet pooled” to cut down on carbon emissions? Or, you know, flown commercial with the hoi polloi? (Via Newsbusters).

UPDATE: John McGinnis thinks it would have been smart to fly commercial: “Every jet flying the
friendly skies is filled with — Voters.”
