Post Just say no thanks to thank-you ads

Hey, big-shot auto execs! Remember how you went to Washington and found out that everybody outside ZIP codes beginning with 480 hates us because back in the 1970s they bought a Pinto or a Chevette or a Cordoba? Then you had to grovel and beg and plead and give up your corporate jets just so you could meet payroll for the next 10 weeks?

Good. We thought you might.

So let’s try to avoid causing the rest of the country to rain down pain and humiliation on us again, OK? Because, so far, you don’t seem to get it.

Insider is speaking of the full-page ads Chrysler LLC-R.I.P. just took out in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, thanking the citizens of this fair land for “investing” in the troubled carmaker.

Although Insider applauds spending money for any newspaper ads, we need to point out that most of the Americans you’re thanking still don’t think carmakers should get any taxpayer-backed bailout loans. Those folks may get even more cheesed-off seeing you write six-figure checks for their money to buy ads thanking them for something they don’t think you deserve and didn’t want to give you in the first place.

So, auto execs, knock it off with the over-priced thank-yous. And yes, that means canceling those 305,491,874 Fruit-of-the-Month club subscriptions, too.
