(User Submitted) – Rush Limbaugh ridiculed GM's new electric car, the Chevy Volt, as just an expensive way of showing "you care" for the environment and "how much better you are than everybody else." Referring to the planned $7,500 tax credit on the Volt's $41,000 price tag, Rush said it proved that "nobody wants it," and he called on Obama and those at "Obama Motors" to let market factors decide if people really wanted the car.

He also disclosed that he canceled a lucrative advertising contract with GM in anticipation of the Volt's release."I'm not going to recommend people go buy an electric car that gets 40 miles to a charge," Rush said. "That would shoot my credibility.” Read the full article at Politico.

Rush Limbaugh will not be buying a Chevy Volt anytime soon.
