    Car looks/sounds great…Too bad GM’s involved. The company that stole your tax dollars to appease unions with a sweetheart crony corporatism deal could screw up a one-car funeral. And why not? If you can screw up and your smarmy friends in powerful government positions bail you out, no questions asked… Well, we all know how that works, don’t we–grab your ankles, everybody. After a while, you’ll hardly feel it.
