Representative Shelley Moore Capito, R-West Virginia, lacking any desire to make a contribution to the not-so-Big Three hearings, decided to inject some levity into the proceedings by naming all of the vehicles her family's owned including a Chrysler station wagon named "Chick Magnet" but then quickly apologized. Why?

The committee's Chairman, Barney Frank, the first openly gay member of Congress, not surprisingly suggested he'd rather have nothing to do with such a vehicle. We imagine "Leroy," "Big Blue," or "Bear" would be more his speed.
