Anybody who bought the Prius should be exterminated.
Why? the Prius is an incredibly economical car. It's probably the best car you can buy regarding fuel economy, and its a very safe car too!
For the average american who doesn't do any driving other then to and from work, or drive their kids around, you really can't beat the Prius. With gas prices going up and up, it makes perfect sense to get a car that gets you the most miles out of your precious petroleum. It may not be the most exciting car you can buy, and i would much rather get something sportier, however i completely respect anyone's decision to get one.
Don't bash the prius dude, not cool...
