On a radio show I tuned into a while back, I heard the ballyhooed Chevy Volt electric car described as “the world’s first coal-powered car.” Love that line. Even Henry Ford wasn’t dumb enough to engineer this lemon.
That’s what cracks me up about these green weenies. Guys like Ed Begley Jr. and other Hollywood dummies line up for the electric car. But they, being leftists, oppose clean nuclear power. So where do they think the energy (especially in LA) comes from to power up their glorified golf carts?
No matter. Turns out that, despite all the buzz, GM sold exactly … hold your breath … 281 Chevy Volts in February.
How did our nimble foreign competitors do? Nissan sold 61 of their “green” electric Leaf models.
Even Dale Earnhart Jr. knows better than to completely swallow this sour gobstopper.
