Big Hubris

Over at Bill Geist's blog:

"Seriously. Was there NO ONE in the brain trust at GM or their PR agency saying, ummmm, "hey, Ed...I think someone might challenge your claim that you've paid back all the federal bailout money?"

Or is the culture so toxic there that no one had the nerve to speak up?

...

Yeah...by using other federal funds.

What is it about running something big (a company, the government, etc.) that makes people at the top think everyone else is stoopid?"
