Fuck Michigan, They Don't Vote For Us Anyway

I'm not especially surprised that the Republican senators oppose a Big Auto bailout, though I am a bit surprised at the harshness of the rhetoric.

WASHINGTON — Top Republican senators said Sunday they will oppose a Democratic plan to bail out Detroit automakers, calling the U.S. industry a “dinosaur” whose “day of reckoning” is coming. Their opposition raises serious doubts about whether the plan will pass in this week’s postelection session.

Democratic leaders want to use $25 billion of the $700 billion financial industry bailout to help General Motors, Ford Motor and Chrysler.
