Delicious Irony

Delicious Irony

 

Great coverage in The Washington Post of an ironic aspect to the auto industry's poverty plea for a government bail-out this week.

 

The three execs from GM, Ford, and Chrysler each took a separate private jet from Detroit to DC for the Congressional hearings for the occasion. 

 

I'm not a fan of Congressional hearing grandstanding and think most members of congress are asses when they do things like this, but not this time.  These guys had it coming and clearly don't have a clue about symbolism (either the importance of it or the art of it). 

 

The details are rich.  Read them here.  Thanks to my colleague Stephanie Miller for pointing this one out.  Yeesh.
