    Keep in mind that Steve Rattner (the "Car Czar") was an investment banker and founding partner of a private-equity firm, as well as an investor in Cerberus, before being appointed. So it's not like he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    Are you expecting some large influx of Rick Wagoner apologists?

    Many executives at large companies are unqualified to run them and their connections are in large part responsible for their cushy jobs. More at 11.

    GM execs also have their cars cleaned every day by a team of people hired only for that, or at least they used to. There was a story in the book "All Corvettes are Red" about a GM exec who drove a Ferrari to work every day, and the detailer people would bitch about having to wash and wax it despite the car not being from GM. :rofl:

    GM apologists, really. Particularly of the variety that would back up Wagoner's assertion that GM's failings are due to the UAW, yen-dollar exchange, etc.
