Chevy Volt Follows Stupid 2012 with Stupider 2013

A related and humerous anecdote, which I have reported, repeatedly. A Ford ad, with an imaginary press crew and a new buyer of a Ford 150, actors all. 'Why did you pick a Ford?, asks a pretend news-person. 'Because they didn't take a bailout!' I laughed and laughed. It aired exactly one day, to my knowledge. My next truck will be a Ford, and I have no affiliation with any dealer or the company. Too funny. If this Government is involved, look for corruption, cronyism and a spendaholic community organizer.

I swore off Ford's when I discovered that Henry Ford was a big fan of a certain German Dictator before WW2, and even kept doing business with him after it became illegal to do so.

Another sad case of ODR it seems. They do have meds for that you know.

After a year that can only be described as “stupid,” the Chevy Volt is gearing up to make 2013 even stupider still.

I know, I know.

You find it hard to believe that a mostly-owned subsidiary of the United States government and the Obama administration- like GM is- could get any stupider than say Fannie Mae, or Federal Reserve Bank.

Yes, that’s tough competition, but in the “idiocy” category GM seems to be the ruling champion.  

Not only have they lost substantial amounts of taxpayer dollars, they have managed to do it while generating record profits...
