Auto bailout last gasp of compasionate conservatism

Tracy Mehan in the American Spectator disects the bailout and how it represents the last pitiful act of Bush’s failed compasionate conservatism. My favorite line: “What are the odds that (a) GM, Chrysler, thousands of auto dealerships and the UAW will achieve viability by March, and (b) the next administration will actually call in the loan if they don’t? Somewhere between zip and zero, I would guess.”
