For years we've been saying the hybrid is the 8-Track of automobiles

We are delighted to report that once again we are right: Hybrid sales are slumping. California, the center of the hubbub and fad of Hybrid Technology, can't sell 'em as easily anymore. Why?

That's the funniest part of all. Once upon a time, you could buy a hybrid here and fly down the carpool lanes. Not anymore. The ceiling of 85,000 such permits has been reached, so that incentive is gone.

Next, there were tax cuts available on the Toyota product, but they're gone. Honda and Ford still have some tax incentives, but they won't last forever.

Sadder still is the story of the first buyers who plunked down enormous sums of money to buy these cars when they were HOT HOT HOT. Now, they're not not not, and the first buyers are finding that they were (PREDICTABLY, I might add) royally reamed.

We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so.
