#rsrh QotD, Mickey Kaus Brings The Pain To GM edition.

And by extension – tanjitthe federal government:

I’d forgotten that in April, 2010 President Obama told the nation (in his weekly radio address)

“It won’t be too long before the stock the Treasury is holding in GM could be sold ….”

Two years later, the Treasury still owns more than 26% of GM. The stock price of the dramatic administration success story is too low to sell without taking gigantic, embarrassing losses.

I know that Mickey Kaus likes being a Democrat, but at some point you simply have to admit that you didn’t leave the party; the party left you.

    Sounds like the same thing we here from the David Frums of the world regarding republicans. There is a lot of money out there for party “mavericks” of all stripes.

    Neither party is notably monolithic, both represent coalitions. Kaus is one of the more rational Dems, Frum is one of the less rational GOPers.
