    At least he didn't sit on his ass and collect welfare.

    An interesting follow up would be for NPR to ask both candidates what their response will be to GM's next bail out request. Far more informative about both men and GM then this article's wiener mobile schtick...

    Next bailout request is right, because you just KNOW it's coming. The question then is, how many times do you bail something out?

    Good question. Wouldn't it be more interesting though, if the American media asked it from both candidates? Would Marty Padgett ask? Does a news media subsidized by the Federal Government ask tough questions of a candidate it supports? Well, maybe a follow up article to the wiener thing could be amusing...

    I certainly would. I've tried via Twitter to ask more on the bailouts--no administration official, ex or current, will comment on how the bankruptcy deals were structured or if breakups were ever contemplated. And they don't have to--the beauty of steamrolling through a conventional, legal, ethical process. I've also tried in the past to ask Gore about the iffier parts of his Earth in the Balance. Unless you're part of the WHPC, you're almost invisible--unless you're Entertainment Tonight, I suppose.

    Interesting, but SO?

    Trying to link Paul Ryan to helping the auto industry with TARP is moronic, he's on record stating he only followed party lines by voting as a robot and regrets that decision so much it made him sick (that from a magazine interview last year recently brought up on a Sunday news/talk show)
