While the Big Three Bailout gets underway a second time in Washington, Silicon Valley's got a better idea for the future of commuting.

No, we're not talking about Tesla and its hopes for a bailout of its own--or even the Fisker Karma. It's this golf cart powered by batteries and owned by the CEO of Facebook.

A sharp blogger near TCC's palatial Palo Alto headquarters sent us this shot with a warning: "I only have one blog, so this is the only place I can put things up," he says. if you're Republican, you might want to get the smelling salts.

While Wagoner, Mulally, and Nardelli drove to D.C. in hybrids, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg carts around the Facebook campus in this golf cart, close to but not actually on the campus of Stanford U.

"Notice the license plate that says 'FB Poke,'" our contact says. Poke back!
