Dealergate Oooohhhh Dealergate

When you are from Planet Winguttia you have an uncanny ability to cook up random nonsense and then with a whim of unapologetic word vomit you let it loose on America. You fill the airwaves with catch phrases and scream that they the Gubbament is out to get you. With a vile, incessant tone you vomit and vomit again like a disgusting ritualistic fraternity machismo fest only to then high-five one another after appearances on the teevee for sticking it to the Left. The playbook calls on you to bastardize words like freedom, liberty, and justice. Put it on lunchboxes, slap it on kids backpacks and sell it sell it, sell it. It's the Winguttia way. Because on your planet words like corruption only apply to those you hate and hate you do. Consistently with such an odoriferous stank that it muffles the sense of your own hypocrisy. In the words of a G-Dub aide,

'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.'' h/t Orcinus

The words of Winguttia.

It is thus no surprise that something like Chrysler's bankruptcy and the closing of dealerships that purveyors of Winguttia do not pause to reflect on family businesses, the factory workers and engineers who might lose their jobs, but a conjured up laughable conspiracy called "Dealergate." Instead of offering new solutions or possible assistance to the many jobless in America, the focus is how Republican car dealers were victim to an intricate Leftist agenda fueled by Pal Around Terrorist Barack Hussy Lefty Socially Corrupty Magicy Obama. This is Winguttia "journalism" and the bowels of logic. Digging and keep digging to connect Obama, the Left and the cup of Christ...or something. And who above all to blame but the Mainstream Media! The other proprietor of evil within the Left and the liberal biased such as and then some in my country, what have you. Chris Matthews single-handedly defeated any proof of a MSM liberal connection.

Winguttia meet your arch enemy facts.

Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight:

Overall, 88 percent of the contributions from car dealers went to Republican candidates and just 12 percent to Democratic candidates. By comparison, the list of dealers on Doug Ross's list (which I haven't vetted, but I assume is fine) gave 92 percent of their money to Republicans -- not really a significant difference.

There's no conspiracy here, folks -- just some bad math.

It shouldn't be any surprise, by the way, that car dealers tend to vote -- and donate -- Republican. They are usually male, they are usually older (you don't own an auto dealership in your 20s), and they have obvious reasons to be pro-business, pro-tax cut, anti-green energy and anti-labor. Car dealerships need quite a bit of space and will tend to be located in suburban or rural areas. I can't think of too many other occupations that are more natural fits for the Republican Party. Unfortunately, while we are still a nation of drivers, we are not a nation of dealers.
