The Chevrolet Volt is only a short time away from having a home at dealerships across the country, but like many media outlets, Motor Trend has been thoroughly testing GM's halo car for some time. In fact, MT has been so impressed with the Volt that it just recently name the extended range EV its Car of the Year. That's a big deal for General Motors and its newest darling, but not everyone is happy with the magazine's choice. In fact, outspoken radio show host Rush Limbaugh recently weighed in with not only a bit of criticism for this decision.

This isn't the first time Limbaugh has been less than favorable in his opinion of the Volt. As you may recall, he first lashed out on the electrified sedan back in July. This time, however, Limbaugh questioned Motor Trend's credibility, and in order to make sure both sides of the argument are well-represented, MT's Todd Lassa has issued a rebuttal. Here, Lassa's main point was to reinforce why the Volt won this award, though a few shots at Limbaugh were made, as well. Lassa called the Volt "the biggest automotive technological breakthrough since... I don't know, maybe the self-starter," and then went on to hammer Limbaugh and fellow political pundit George Will for not understanding what makes the Volt so significant. The sleeves are rolled and the claws are out, folks. Head over to MT to read the response for yourself.
