    No, it’s worse. At least taxpayers weren’t on the hook for the Edsel. The Volt, an expensive toy electric car for greeniacs, actors and assorted poseurs, has been recalled. I guess there won’t be any campaign commercials about how wonderful electric cars are going to end our dependence on foreign oil.

      James Hoffa Jr’s union made junk is never purchased by us SOB’s. I get a kick out of seeing a global warming chiclet brain stuck on the side of the road in one of these during a rain or snow storm.

      Should be easy peasy to effectuate this ‘recall’ given that 5000 of the roughly 7500 Volts sold in the first year are in the hands of the Obama administration, anyway.

      Wasn’t GE going to buy 50,000 of these to get the administration off the hook?

      Which brings up a point – what if Republicans win and actually had some testicular fortitude? PBS, NPR, NEA, NEH – gone. GE – what government contracts?
