Bailout Watch 331: Bill Ford Waits for the World to Implode
January 11th, 2009 6:30 PM Share
Fans of English royalty will both recognize the seminal moment in the courtship of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. During an official interview with David “I’m not a Dickens character either” Dimbleby, the obsequious reporter dared ask Charlie Boy and Lady Di if they were in lerve. “Of course,” the future Mrs. Windsor replied. To which Charlie famously added “Whatever love is.” The story reminds me of today’s pronouncement by Ford scion, ex-Ford CEO, current Ford Chairman of the Board Bill Ford when asked if FoMoCo will join GM and Chrysler by lining-up for a mega-suckle on Uncle Sugar’s tit. “Only if the world implodes as we know it.” Whatever “implodes” means. Maybe we should ask Barney Frank.

You gotta remember this guy is the brains behind the Detroit Lions.
"bluecon : You gotta remember this guy is the brains behind the Detroit Lions".- Actually that would be his father, Bill Ford Sr.
We could ask Senator Frank, but would we understand the answer? Could we even concentrate on his bad speech without becoming hypnotized by his slobbery? How many seconds would it take before we weren't sure what he said, but were relatively sure it was a crock?
