Why Can't A Car Have Both Manual AND Automatic?

This brief exchange on the FP has me wondering. Can a car now have both a manual and a an automatic that you could switch from one to the other?

Engineering a mock clutch with some feel that a computer translates to the electronic clutch in a semi-automatic would be a challenge, I think, but we put a man on the moon, dammit. And instead of flappy paddles, you have a stick that could be turned on and off.
