The Dodge Geithner

Over this past weekend, while we watched the NCAA basketball Final Four take shape and Tiger Woods return to the winner’s circle, something most sinister was happening: our government was taking over the management of General Motors and threatening to do the same to Chrysler. Granted, we have loaned these huge corporations billions of dollars and they still havn’t developed a suitable scenario that would put them on the road to recovery. It must have appeared to those newly in charge of our Treasury that GM and Chrysler would continue to bleed billions of dollars in years to come. So they intervened. This arrogant brain trust – high-flying, derivative creating, slum lording, bad-mortgage supporting, no-tax-paying geniuses – that is about to put us in further debt to the tune of $4 trillion dollars, has determined that it can run these companies better than current management. Watch for the new models coming in spring 2010: the Dodge Geithner, the Buick Bernanke and the return of the Oldsmobile in the form of the Obamobile. (This is not the first time a national government has involved itself with the design and production of automobiles: think Volkswagen.)

This government "brain trust" could not run a corner deli.
