ok so no one said boot em bob nardelli s an suv guy

Would someone at Chryslerberus please tell their new jeffe that the ungainly four-door Jeep Commander is almost as much of a goner as his precious Prowler? Boot'em Bob Nardelli doesn't seem to realize it was a dud right out of the chute, and sales are even worse this year– down 15.5 percent. Oblivious to the facts, Nardelli said "the Jeep Commander is doing a great job" while talking to reporters at the Prowler 10th anniversary PR-orgy celebration last week. Detroit News Autos Insider suggests maybe he read the monthly sales chart upside down. It's more likely an indicator of just how little he really knows about the auto industry. Don't say we didn't tell you.

    I can state with complete sincerity that I have seen more Gallardos or F430s in Toronto than I have Jeep Commanders. No joke.

    Frank - I think your idea is brilliant and would serve to remove a small piece of real ugly from the roads. Here goes: Dear Mr. Nardelli - The Jeep Commander is almost as much of a goner as [your] precious [and equally dumb] Prowler. I feel better already...
