More Proof The Big Three's Lobbying Efforts Kinda Blow

Robert Reich, America's shortest Secretary of Labor, was on Hardball last night discussing the incoming Obama administration's economic package and plans to Save GM when he fumbled a question from Chris Matthews about the auto industry. The question? Name a domestic, fuel-efficient car you'd like to own. It's a sad state of affairs when someone as truly bright as Reich is either unable to give a straight answer to that question or is completely clueless about which cars are and are not American. He eventually, and hilariously, confesses to owning a Mini Cooper. Matthews then goes on to talk about the "Ford Volt" in perhaps a subtle attempt to point out the automakers haven't made the best case for themselves. [MSNBC]
