I Sing the Auto Electric

If you purchase a Chevrolet Volt, you know, the electric car made by General Motors, the company you and I bailed out, in order to save union jobs, so that union workers would still make a wage, so that they could continue to pay union dues, so that the union could make huge donations to the Democrat Party, in order to...oh, sorry, where was I?

Oh yea, as it happens, if you purchase a Chevy Volt, it'll take you almost 27 years to save enough on fuel to make up for the difference in price had you simply bought a similar gas-guzzling equivalent instead.

But then the cost savings was never the chief reason for buying an electric car anyway.  Rather, it was so you could wear a little green ribbon on your lapel and feel superior to everyone else.

Some things money just can't buy.
