Rush Limbaugh just admitted on the air that he thought the runaway Toyota driver story was fishy, but “didn’t have the guts” to say so.

Now, even the lamestream media have paused in their Toyota-fever to wonder if Prius hostage Jim Sikes just wanted to be on TV.

You heard it here first.

FORSMARK: Does anyone else smell a rat here?  Aren’t there just a few TOO many “defects” to be believable.  Do some people want to join a must-be-coming lawsuit?

Over at National Review, Walter Olson has a great article that dissects the whole phenomenon, and finds some glaring statistics that ought to give the media pause:

OLSON: You know those unseen and undetectable gremlins that hide in Toyota’s electronic throttle controls? Turns out they have it in for elderly drivers. The Los Angeles Times has compiled a list of 56 fatal incidents over 19 years purportedly involving unintended Toyota acceleration, … That median age turns out to be 60 — that is to say, half the drivers were that old or older. By contrast, only 16 percent of general auto fatalities in 2008 occurred with a driver 60 or older behind the wheel. Whatever is causing Avalons, Highlanders, and Tundras to misbehave is largely bypassing drivers in their twenties and thirties and instead homing in on drivers old enough to remember the Eisenhower era.

I smell a John Stossel investigative report in the works…
