But, but....Government Motors produces Cadillac..
I agree, to some extent, with their decrying of the emphasis on “stuff.” There is nothing particularly conservative about conspicuous consumption or materialism.
Never have understood why they encourage Mexicans or Mongolians to express pride in their country and heritage but denounce Americans for doing so.

The Marxists are who and what they are. You cannot expect them to change.
So now we aren’t supposed to make fun of the French? Wow. I’ll have to ask my liberal friends.
Look at the difference between the builders of the great tax-exempt "charitable" foundations and the people who wield them now. It was Rockefeller who sponsored Kinsey. It has been Ford and Carnegie who have wrecked the education system. The Packard Foundation, the Pews, and Ted Turner's money fund the environmental move-mint. Believe me, none of those activities are directed for anything other than profit without work; in fact, they despise it.
This is how the consequences filter back through the culture, and in some respects it is why.
"Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
A few years back, I could see Denis Leary doing that commercial.
Would have been a hoot.
I noticed in the commercial that he unplugged the ELR before getting in.
I haven’t kept up on Cadillacs (thanks to Obama, owning a new Cadillac is about as likely as owning a new Rolls), but it appears the ELR is a plug in hybrid.
Shouldn’t the HP loons be swooning about it’s green-nes?
I will never buy another GM, but this is an awesome ad.
The fact that it’s advertising a technological advance that will speed the day when the barbarians have no use for their oil other than to make camel lube is the cherry on the sundae.
This commercial is just manipulative crap. The target demographic gets its buttons pushed and loves it. Honestly, you’d think conservatives endlessly yelping about the free market would be a bit more savvy about how the free market works.
I hope to see GM crash and burn in to the ash heap of history. This is a government owned company that had their cronies in the US government STEAL from millions of Americans to feed their UAW trough. Pathetic excuse for a company.
Huffington Post is just upset because “Cadillac” is a term reserved for berating evyil rich 1%rs. If this same vehicle used a Prius they’d be wiping the slobber off their chins.
First time I’ve even heard about it.
I didn’t watch the Super Bowl.
I was working.
