Chevy Volt Fails To Complete Very Short Circuit In New York

Chevy Volt--Not Moving

The Chevy Volt shockingly (per Fox News) ran out of electrons to move it in pretty short order under city driving. Watt’s more, the intrepid test drivers couldn’t find a filling station to replenish them. The real shock seems more the fact that Fox thought this worth reporting…anyone who doesn’t know the Volt is a lefty propaganda exercise imposed upon Government Motors by the Obama Administration has been asleep the last hundred years inside a castle surrounded by impervious thorns. It’s also no secret that the damn’ thing runs on its battery about as long as a Fourth of July sparkler stays lit. It would likely do better replacing the battery with a really long power cord. Fox Tests Volt; Runs Out of Juice in the Lincoln Tunnel is informative if you wish to know more.

What makes this report fun is the equally curious lefty reaction; they attacked Fox for all sorts of asserted evils in making this old news public, mostly is seems, because it doesn’t make the lefty green scene (by implication) look intelligent and dignified. I’d say the lefties got suckered by Fox on this one. They ignore stuff like throwing out habeas corpus and due process while putting the army in charge of civilian policing (Defense Authorization Act, Sec. 1031) and go loudly nuts over a toy car. Go figure…

Meantime, GM has plenty of Volts it hasn’t sold yet, in case you haven’t bought yours.
