Yesterday the CEOs of the Big 3 Automakers appeared before Congress to request a bailout. The media exposed how these men had flown to Washington on private jets at a cost of $20,000 round trip. I'm thinking, "Bad PR move, guys."
But here's what got me: Congress then wanted to beat these guys up over this. They had them on the hot seat -- continuously questioning them about this. Was it a big blunder? Yes. Should it be addressed? Yes. But by Congress -- the greatest wasteful spenders anywhere? Spare me the utter hypocrisy.
