Is there a political component in which Chrysler and GM dealerships are slated to be closed? That's a question bubbling up on the internet, and several bloggers are on the case. Michelle Malkin added a status report Wednesday morning, after she posted Tuesday not to rashly jump to conclusions.
Doug Ross at Journal had the first post on the topic that I saw. He listed several dealerships on the cutting block and their giving to Republicans or Democrats not named Barack Obama.
Obviously, car dealers are important businessmen in their community. Those are the people who are also interested in politics, and established politicians would likely be courting them for donations.
It's something to watch.
