This is almost piling on Rush, when he is down. After all, even leading Republican voices have been pounding Rush in the wake of the President's election triumph, calling his regular diatribes against women and minorities a reason why the Republican party is getting crushed among the young, women, and minorities.
Another target for Rush's acid tongue are electric vehicles. Indeed, Rush and other conservative figures have targeted electric vehicles for ridicule, ever since the Prius came on the scene.
Despite the right wing pounding, the electric vehicle rush is gaining momentum, with more and more EV models coming to market. The Tesla Model S is one of the latest, and it just won MotorTrend's Car of the Year. www.wired.com/autopia/2012/11/motortrend-coty-tesla-model-s/. The Tesla Model S is, in fact, piling up the awards. www.autoblog.com/2012/11/01/tesla-model-s-wins-automobile-car-of-the-year-w-video/.

Electric vehicles, biofuels, CNG vehicles, and much more fuel efficient gasoline and diesel vehicles are why America's oil consumption peaked in 2007 and will likely never again match that peak year.
