Wasn’t it the Regime’s good friend Al Franken aka Stuart Smalley who once wrote that denial is not just a river in Egypt? Perhaps he should mention that to Government Motors. They are flummoxed because there aren’t enough silly self-important libs willing to pay $40,000 to proclaim their desire to save Mother Earth from evil fossil fuel pollution. They expected to sell 45,000 Volts, but they fell a teensy weensy bit short of that, as in 43,374. It’s not that no one wants their green machines. It’s the media’s fault.
GM blamed the lack of sales in January on “exaggerated” media reports and the federal government’s investigation into Volt batteries catching fire, which officially began in November and ended Jan. 21,” the Ann Arbor (Mich.) News reported.
When you start blaming the media, Guys, you have lost the argument.
