I wrote a blog earlier this week about the big three automakers using private jets to fly into Washington DC to ask for bailout money for themselves. The audacity of them spending as much as $20,000 a piece to fly in style while begging poverty was too much for me.
I have to give credit to Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY). He was able to sum up in one sentence what it took a blog for me to say.
"There's a delicious irony in seeing private luxury jets flying into Washington, D.C., and people coming off them with tin cups in their hands,"..."It's almost like seeing a guy show up at the soup kitchen in high-hat and tuxedo."
For these words of wisdom, I give Rep Ackerman the owl
