- A Perfect Liberal Story
With the possible exception of a government subsidy, this story has everything that liberals love. The technology was totally fictitious but no more so than an America powered solely by windmills and solar panels. And that's no reason not to love the tale. For liberals, as you know, things don't have to be realistic or economically feasible as much as they have to be "bold visions of the future". Think of this as an early effort in "green technology".
And don't doubt for a minute that had Jerry Dean Michael had launched his automotive effort in 2009 (along with a sizable Democrat campaign contribution) he'd have gotten a Billion dollar subsidy from the energy department.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you a tale from the 70's that even I had never heard of (compliments of an obscure mention in The Corner):
The New 70 mpg DALE.
