    With fanfare today Ford President Mark Fields announced production of the new Ford Hybrid Fusion on MSNBC this A.M. Also proudly reiterated that Ford did not need bailout money.

    First question from Pat Buchanan- " Where will this car be produced? "

    Mark Fields : in our plant in Mexico


    You could just hear all the air suck out of the room.

    No wonder they don't need the bailout money.

    In a few years, after the North American Union is officially formed, it won't matter. Mexico, the U.S. and Canada will all be one country.

    Don't believe me? Ha! Well this link explains it all:

    Giant sucking sound?

    And why not produce this car at the Ford/Mazda plant in Michigan? That's where the Mazda 6 is built, and it is (or was) the same car.

    Bet you 100 ameros it'll never happen.

    And 40 MPG seems a low number for a hybrid, even a U.S.-made one. You can get almost 50 in a VW Jetta diesel, probably pay about the same for one, and probably be 10 times more comfortable.

    Time's running out for the old NAU. It's supposed to be fully in place by 2010.

    The NAU, like the unconstitutionality of the income tax, is on my "wingnut litmus test" list.
