    One style point for the spray tan one style point for not saying "crock of shit" two style points for the beautiful models -3 points for saying he's the oldest man to pilot military tactical jets. I believe Chuck Yeager beat Maximum Bob by a number of years. Chuck has more of the right stuff in his little finger than Maximum Bob has in his whole body. In fact, Chuck Norris is a third generation clone of Chuck Yeager.

    The most surprising assertion Lutz made last night was that America was in a transition to wage parity with China, India, and such. Quite possibly true, but some harsh medecine nonetheless. It's not so much wage parity as it is wage stratification. The US is way, way ahead of other western nations in approaching a spread and median that mirrors that of developing nation. Forget $100K cars. Destroy the middle class and you won't be selling many cars at $10K. As for the "We can't survive selling $100K cars" admission, well, that's funny coming from a man who seemed to spend his whole career avoiding commodity transit like the plague. Lutz would have been a good choice to run Pontiac or Cadillac, but as a car czar he's a bad choice for a mainstream marque because he's truly not interested in mainstream cars.

    Conslaw:"In fact, Chuck Norris is a third generation clone of Chuck Yeager." I hadn't heard that before! Courtesy of Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding. Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice. There is no chin behind Chuck Norris’ beard. There is only another fist. When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down. Chuck Norris is so fast, he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head. Chuck Norris’ hand is the only hand that can beat a Royal Flush. Chuck Norris can lead a horse to water AND make it drink. Chuck Norris doesn’t wear a watch, HE decides what time it is. Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door. etc... Though, Chuck never said that "Global Warming is a Crock of Shit" Gotta hand that to Max Bob.
