Just to be clear: when you repeatedly insist that $37,500 is a totally absurd, spit-out-your-drink MSRP for the Bolt - a price that completely invalidates any further discussion or interest - you are aware that it won multiple Car of the Year awards at that price?

I don’t see why the MSRP - not the price it’s selling for, but just the MSRP - is that important. Even if you go to the website, the default Build & Price is $29,390 including destination.

You’re almost there! The real insight is, “Democrats are never going to be behind someone like Bernie because his frequently stated goal is to defeat the longtime leaders they respect.” Do you think “We need to get people like Jim Clyburn out of office” is a winning message in SC? Read more

Keep in mind that our second-most-recently appointed Supreme Court Justice wrote an opinion supporting the idea that a trucking company was justified in firing a driver for choosing not to freeze to death while waiting for roadside assistance in sub-zero temperatures with no working heater.
