    If Malibu Ken here, is such a Titan of Business, how is it possible that he DIDN'T know that GM was going to be releasing its annual report today?

    And if his finger is on the pulse of Big Business, how is it possible that he didn't have a pretty decent idea of what that report was going to, well, report?

    So, he decides to preempt matters by producing an op-ed that has the same result as *issing on the third rail?

    I've long believed that rMoney had the same level of stick-to-it-ness as his hair spay, but I didn't know he was Teh Stoopidz until now.

      ...has been wildly overstated by his supporters.

      There is, after all, a good reason why we have had no detailed discussion of his successes at Bain. In short, there really aren't any successes to talk about.

      Sure, they made a lot of money, but most of it came from slick manuevering and opportunistic speculation. It fills the bank account up quite nicely, but doesn't look especially attractive on the campaign trail.
