Congressional Motors announces the GTxi Pelosi

Don't miss the full version of this from IowaHawk:

It's in the way you dress. The way you boogie down. It's that special feeling of a zero-emissions wind at your back and a road ahead meandering with possibilities. The kind of feeling you get behind the wheel of the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition from Congressional Motors.

All new for 2012, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the mandatory American car so advanced it took $100 billion and an entire Congress to design it. We've subsidized the features you want and taxed away the rest. With its advanced Al Gore-designed V-3 under the hood pumping out 22.5 thumping, carbon-neutral ponies of Detroit muscle, you'll never be late for the Disco or the Day Labor Shelter.

Sporty mag-style hubcaps and an all-new aggressive wedge shape designed by CM's Chief Stylist Ted Kennedy slices through the wind like an omnibus spending bill.

A special high capacity hatchback holds up to 300 aluminum cans, meaning fewer trips to the redemption center. And the standard 3 speaker Fairness ActoPhonic FM low-band sound system means you'll never miss a segment of NPR again.

Best of all, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt is made right here in the U.S.A. by fully card-checked unionized workers and Detroit's famous visionary jet-set managers. Even if you don't own one, you can enjoy the patriotic satisfaction that you're supporting the high wages, good benefits, and generous political donations that are once again making the American car industry the envy of the world.

But why not buy one anyway? With an MSRP starting at only $629,999.99, it's affordable too. Don't forget to ask about dealer incentives, rebates, tax credits, and wealth redistribution plans for customers from dozens of qualifying special interest groups. Plus easy-pay financing programs from Fannie Mae.

So take the bus to your local CM dealer today and find out why the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the only car endorsed by President Barack Obama. One test drive will convince you that you'd choose it over the import brands. Even if they were still legal.

you probably didn't notice that I edited out about 40% of the original article, and encouraged readers to read the whole thing.

This is closer to the truth than you think, if you look at a real world example of a car produced in 1989 in a state owned and operated industry:

As I understand it, the public is very much against a bailout. Let's hope it doesn't happen. The world definitely doesn't need another Trabant. Nor a Pelosi.

well i had told you an hour and a half ago, payrolls would come in at -533 with downward revisions going back.....would you have figured bonds would be selling off now.....think this highlights 2 things. 1. how unplayable and dangerous these markets remain...keep risk low/zero. 2. or maybe some signs the bond markets running out of steam? who knows!

I think the explanation is simple: the market has been priced to a depression for some time now. Even today's news doesn't put us in a depression. We lost more jobs in the last recession (which was very mild) than we have lost so far in this one.
