THOSE EVIL DEMOCRATS WITH THEIR PARTISAN OPPOSITION TO DEATH AND INJURY IN CAR ACCIDENTS
At Commentary's blog, J.G. Thayer seems to acknowledge what you've probably long suspected: Democrats are in favor of auto safety, so Republicans are against it. Emphasis mine below:
Wagoner's head is most likely the first demand from the Obama administration. It's not hard to see future demands GM may face:
• The death of SUVs.
• More development resources into hybrid, electric, hydrogen, and other alternative-fuel vehicles.
• More concessions to the UAW and other unions.
• GM changing its tune on a host of issues, such as fuel efficiency standards, tightening emissions, and safety regulations.
In other words, GM will be used to pay off various Democratic interests and constituencies.
That's right -- according to Thayer, people who don't want to die or be seriously injured in unsafe vehicles are a Democratic interest and/or constituency. Republicans, one can only infer, are pro-auto injury and pro-auto fatality.
Glad to have that cleared up.
