Government Motors And The Russian Revolution

Government MotorsRemember Brian Deese? He quit law school last year to join the presidential campaign of Mrs. Billy Bubba Slime. The day she faded, he signed up with Mr. Also Known As. With the inauguration of affirmative action pretend President Big Ears, he entered the White House. Nicholas was the only Czar in Imperial Russia. Imperial America is overrun with them. Also Known As named Brian Deputy car czar.

His job was to dismantle General Motors and “rewrite the rules of American capitalism.” Brian Deese probably can drive a car but when he was crowned he had yet to set foot even once in a car plant. He probably can shave himself but he is all of 31 years old. Not bad for his first government job. Deputy car czar Brian has helped decide what happens to thousands of auto workers and investors. Such fun, eh, Brian? Even better than Legos!

I remind you of Brian because now here comes the man Also Known As has named to put together General Motors after Brian has dismantled it. He is Edward E. Whitacre, Jr. Ed is a wholesome sixty seven and built AT&T Inc. into the biggest U.S. provider of telephone service over a 43-year-career. The trouble is that Ed Whitacre says he knows nothing about the auto industry.
