For your viewing pleasure:

(1) A list of the 18 Republican Senators who voted for the $700 billion bailout for America's banks but against $14 billion to save America's automakers. (Cutting wages and benefits, which was of crucial importance when it came to the Detroit, didn't seem to matter all that much when it came to Wall Street.)

(2) A well-reasoned case by Nobel Laureate (and Mother Jones contributor/interviewee) Joe Stiglitz in favor of letting American automakers go into Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
