RADICAL CHIC: “Mercedes-Benz Uses Communist Madman Che Guevara to Sell Luxury Cars,” Mike Gonzalez writes at the Heritage Foundation, linking to a CBS article that opens with this quote:

“Some colleagues still think that car-sharing borders on communism,” Mercedes-Benz Chairman of the Board of Management Dieter Zetsche said onstage at CES today, speaking about Mercedes’ new CarTogether initiative. “But if that’s the case, viva la revolucion!”

The Baader Meinhof Complex comes full circle.

(Again.)

UPDATE: From David Kopel at the Volokh Conspiracy: “Mercedes-Benz: The car for people who admire mass-murdering racist totalitarian thugs.”
