GM/Ford/Chrysler are standing in line with their hands out for their piece of the bailout package. And, in a distinctive AIG move, last month the CEO's of these companies head off to DC to plead tgheir poverty in their luxurious private jets.
Yeah, it makes you scratch your head. But NPR pointed out that flying private is contractural for top CEO's, that it's too much of a terrorist risk to fly commercial. In a way, I can understand that.
Until the companies just blew that theory out of the water by having the Big Kahunas return to DC by car. That's right, road trip. Huh.
I wonder if they're driving those big gas-hog SUV's?
