In its unceasing campaign to lose market share to Japanese companies that understand the American consumer, GM has rolled out new promotion, the “You're a Great American” car giveaway. And they've hired Sean Hannity as their spokesmodel.
You have to wonder how small the ratio gets between the IQs over there and the MPG ratings of their cars: what sort of genius does it take to identify your (struggling) company with a guy who routinely insults more than half the country? As Think Progress reminds us, this is the guy who,
- said a Democratic victory in the midterm elections could be a “victory for the terrorists”
- said that “making sure Nancy Pelosi doesn’t become the [House] speaker” is “worth … dying for.”
- compared voting for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) to voting for terrorist groups Hamas or Hezbollah.
And GM thinks this will help them sell cars? Short the stock now.
