Hypocrisy alert — Carl Levin on Big Three

Michgan Sen Carl Levin says Big Three CEOs should resign in order for their companies to get government bailout loans.

And will you be joining them, Carl? And taking brother Sander? And Reps. John Dingell and Dale Kildee, among others? And Sen. Granholm, Gov. Stabenow and yet more?

Along with that, how about UAW Prez Carl Gettelfinger? Will Michael Moore resign from documentary filmmaking since he failed to look at all of these angles in “Roger and Me”?

To be fair, a Detroit Free Press columnist says it’s not fair for today’s Big Three to be tainted by past mistakes.

Agreed — at least for the sake of argument.

But, Detroit has plenty of current-day mistakes as well.

Ford had a 65-mpg diesel hybrid at auto shows two years ago. Where is it?

Why wasn’t the Volt ready years earlier, instead of GM going for do-nothing greenwash with hydrogen cars?
