Who killed the electric car? - Why it was Barack Obama, in the garage, with a lead pipe.

Driving to work this morning, I heard that the near-bankrupt General Motors was underwriting National Public Radio, but that they were rolling out a new generation of "green" vehicles.  Surely this was pandering to the NPR-style audience and/or Congressional benefactors since GM makes almost all their profit on pickup trucks and SUVs.  Sure enough, even the Obama administration couldn't pretend that GM's heavily-advertised Chevy Volt is a white elephant, uneconomical to the vast majority of Americans.
