Motor trend magazine sticks it to Limbaugh

The Chevrolet Volt has been voted Motor Trend magazine's 'car of the year'.  This is pissed off Rush Limbaugh no end.  In his world, the more gas a caar uses the better it is.   Throw in how pissed he is that the bailout saved Chev and he's been ranting about the Volt for some time now.

He embarrassed himself by saying, “[O]f all the cars in the world, the Chevrolet Volt is the Car of the Year? Motor Trend magazine, that's the end of them. How in the world do they have any credibility? Not one has been sold [and] the Volt is the Car of the Year.”    Rush is beyond embarrassment but the reason none have been sold yet is because they aren't on the market yet.

Motor Trend's editor Todd Lassa nailed the fat drug abusing fuck with the followoing:

So, Mr. Limbaugh; you didn’t enjoy your drive of our 2011 Car of the Year, the Chevrolet Volt? Assuming you’ve been anywhere near the biggest automotive technological breakthrough since … I don’t know, maybe the self-starter, could you even find your way to the front seat? Or are you happy attacking a car that you’ve never even seen in person? [...]
All the shouting from you or from electric car purists on the left can’t distort the fact that the Chevy Volt is, indeed, a technological breakthrough. And it’s more. It’s a technological breakthrough that many American families can use for gas-free daily commutes and well-planned vacation drives. It’s expensive for a Chevy, but many of those families will find the gasoline saved worth it. If you can stop shilling for your favorite political party long enough to go for a drive, you might really enjoy the Chevy Volt. I’m sure GM would be happy to lend you one for the weekend. Just remember: driving and Oxycontin don’t mix.
