A few Republican senators seem to maybe have grown a pair:
Emergency aid for the nation’s imperiled auto industry was thrown into jeopardy Wednesday, opposed by Republicans who were revolting against a hard-fought deal between Democrats and the Bush White House to speed $14 billion to ailing carmakers.
Democrats detailed the compromise measure and laid the groundwork for quick votes on it, holding out hope the bailout could be enacted by week’s end. But a growing number of GOP senators declared they would not go along.
Oh please oh please oh please oh please oh please kill this thing. Otherwise, Detroit is doomed.
