Standing Athwart The Bailout

It looks like South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint has joined John Ensign and Jeff Sessions in threatening to filibuster the Democrats' proposed auto bailout bill. I wish there were more Republican voices speaking out strongly in favor of free markets and against nationalizing American businesses, but I suppose we've got to start somewhere.

This latest idea of government appointed "Auto Czar" is mind numbingly stupid. One wonders where such a person has been while the Big Three were floundering away. The idea that one individual, selected by the incompetents in the US Congress, can solve all of Detroit's problems should have been laughed out of the Capitol building.
