That damned Edsel

What's Mallard raving about today?

Chevy Volt

Not sure why the Pentagon's decision to by Chevy Volts makes the car a failure on par with the Edsel, that logic escapes me.

That said, while the Chevy Volt has appeared as a "punchline" in Mallard Fillmore multiple times, it is going much too far to suggest that in any of those cases there was a joke...at least not as commonly understood by human beings.

Me, I find jokes are at their best when there's no context, set-up, shared experience, or pay-off to them. Masterpiece.

Uh, Mallard? It doesn't count if you're making up all the jokes yourself.

Being a Republican, he can waive the requirement that a joke must be funny, as long as it contains a nasty slam at somebody the teller does not like; in this case, the automaker who got help.

Why the GOP wants to concede the electric car market to foreigners I don't know ...

...unless, after Citizens United, they recognize that foreigners will run our elections.
