General Motors Shoots Foot With Rush Limbaugh Green Ad
File this one under unbelievable. Just when you think General Motors has more than two brain cells rubbing together on working to improve America’s impression of fuel efficiency in auto-making, someone had the clever idea to hire right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh to tout their green initiatives. This is the same guy that revels in owning a Maybach because it has shitty mileage, believes global warming is bogus, and calls environmentalists “wackos”.
It gets better. Not only does Limbaugh praise GM’s commitment to the environment, but he also heaps praise on his Escalade and Suburban SUVs. Now hey, obviously this is a guy that truly enjoys those vehicles — but we just find it incredibly odd that GM would choose to have someone represent them that could not truly care less about the direction they’re trying to head in. Save the planet? Make America more efficient and sustainable? The guy has been battling environmentalism since the early 90s — he couldn’t give a rat’s ass.
