Watch Republicans try valiantly to be funny by mocking Chevy Volt
Aw, look, they’re trying to make jokes! I’m going to print this right out and hang it on the fridge in a frame that says My First Satire.
Leaving the humor value (or “humor” “value”) thing aside, I’m actually kind of stunned that a right-wing group is willing to go this negative on the U.S. auto industry — you know, the one it used to be all patriotic to support. I guess all they need is a mild indication that something might be attempting environmental friendliness, and they’ll immediately repudiate it. They’d probably throw their own grandmother under a bus if they heard she was recycling.
