This might not be quite as funny as the Iowahawk video on the Pelosi GTxi SS/RT, but it’s a close call. In any event, this is extremely clever, makes an important philosophical point, and deserves to be shared widely.

And since we’re on the topic of mooching car companies, here’s another very good parody, featuring the sleek new Obummer from Government Motors.

Editor's note: We've include the Pelosi GTxi SS/RT below in a rare display of fair play.

GM’s Future: The Pelosi GTxi SS/RT

Since everybody outside of Washington already seems to understand that government-run car companies are doomed to fail, I will spare you a dull treatise on why the GM bailout is a bad idea. Instead, how about an advance look at GM’s 2012 top-selling car…

The video is funny, but the joke may be on us. A few of you old timers may remember the Trabant of East Germany. How long before our masters in Washington start forcing us to drive similar pieces of junk?
