Thanks Jay Leno...
In an exclusive interview with PM, Jay Leno gives us his take on the auto bailout:

I think we should bail them out. To me its like class warfare. The white-collar guys get a bailout and the blue-collar guys dont? Thats crazy. You know, Id rather help a guy with a wrench in his hand than some guy sitting in front of a keyboard.

http://www.popularmechanics.com/blogs/automotive_news/4...

Weve given the banks $700 billion. Does it seem like anything has actually happened with that money? No. But when a factory closes, boy, youll see the effect of that right away. Youll see towns go under and youll see lives ruined. That town will never be a manufacturing center again. At best those old buildings will become a mall or a Wal-Mart.

I look at it this way: I dont necessarily want to loan my brother-in-law money, but hes family. To me, GM, Ford, Chrysler and the suppliers that go along with them are our family.

1. Jay started out life as a Rolls Royce mechanic, I believe.
Not sure of the make of car, but I think it was Rolls Royce. He knows what it's like to have a wrench in his hand.

2. Fuck Jay Leno.
He is a tool and has allowed his program to be a used to promote cults, GOPers and their lies.

I'd rather hear from people who work for a living.

7. Leno
Leno is one of the best celebrity car guys America has.

I prefer Letterman's humor, but Jay deserves recognition for his hard core car guy status.

And he's had both Ashley and John Force on his show!
