Dear Elon… nice work on the model S. I’ve ridden in two and I have to say it’s an outstanding car. I wish I could say the same about your lobbying efforts in Texas, but it’s just not possible. You’ve been outspent 40:1 which is pretty bad, but it’s not really what killed you… the dealers can only do so much damage. No, the real problem is that your folks didn’t sell this right to a Lege which is dominated by teabaggers who are best persuaded from the grassroots up. Instead, you ran it from the lobbying level and the battle was lost before it even began.
Anyway, I’ll look forward to buying a Chevy Volt. I know it’s not as nice, but at least I can buy one in Texas.
