Don't Know

Mickey, noting that one of the executives in the Opel acquisition talks has been "linked" (WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE) with Bill Clinton:

Will her relationship with Bill hurt her or help her?--ed Don't know. But it's likely to be one or the other!

[Is this a perfect distillation of Mickey's complete brainlessness or an attempt by Mickey to paper over an obviously weak item with slight self-deprecation? -- ed. It's likely to be one or the other!]

Of course, the ideal story for Mickey wouldn't be Magna winning the bid by exploiting personal connections -- for Mickey, crony capitalism is only problematic when unions are the crony -- but Fiat winning the bid. That outcome would, naturally, imply that Hillary killed Magna's bid (and presumably boiled it along with Belinda's pet rabbit while laughing maniacally) because Bill went all homina homina homina on Belinda. Hillary's bitchy and Bill's horny! Get it?

So of course Magna won the bid, leaving a despondent Mickey to take a sad little swipe at Chrysler. Can't win 'em all.

But don't despair, Mickey! Hey, maybe it'll all come out that Bill was *actually* sexing this guy, too!

Here's a hint: ask around at Cafe Milano!
