BuzzFeed: This guy proves Newt Gingrich's jabs at electric cars wrong. Probably wouldn't have hit his head on a pickup though.

YouTube Description:

In response to Newt Gingrich's cheap shots at the American designed, American made, and American powered Chevrolet Volt, claiming you couldn't put a gun rack in the back.... I prove he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Newt's ramblings about things he doesn't understand:

Just make sure your ammo is in a fireproof box in your coal-powered, taxpayer-funded, rolling electroturd.


Are you mental in what way does your comment make sense ?

electric from nuclear coal gas or whatever is as tax funded as the oil people put in cars It might even be the case that oil requires and consumes more tax funding if you include military expenses required to keep oil coming.

electric cars specifcaly might be tax funded projects but evan then when you calculate all involved costs I'm sure its negligible or comparable to the tax oil industry receives or other industries have received for RND.


Also why would it be inherently bad for things to be tax funded? even if electric cars are a bag of shit at this point in time and the technology might be debatable, at least if it did work out it would move america away from international dependencies which is what most conservatives, liberationists and liberals want.

Because you haven't made a coherent point your comment is redundant.

In case you hadn't noticed, all American cars are taxpayer funded these days. I can't speak to the Volt, but I've been in a Nissan Leaf with 4 guys and the car was surprisingly powerful. And needless-to-say, the Tesla vehicles do not suffer from any kind of performance deficiency. So go ahead, laugh it up while you're paying $4-5 for a gallon of corn juice that'll carry you about 20 miles or so. Meanwhile, the electric car owners will spend $4-5 on a full charge of a 200 mile battery pack.


[edit] I don't know why, but I was thinking the Volt was all electric. Screw these hybrids, Detroit. Spend some damn R&D money on battery energy density.

I'm very happy we're focusing on these important issues.

Of course trolling Newt is the most important thing.

Quality source you got yourself there. This is most likely bullshit...like the Toyota Prius crap that turned out to be a BUNCH of Fucking lies. I'm waiting until more evidence comes out...but I'm sure sensationalist news sites won't.

Jalopnik is a site of car enthusiasts. That said, way to attack the messenger. Has Tesla disputed this widely known and very harmful claim? Not directly.
