Auto Dealers in Revolt Over Choice of The Pantsuit as Convention Speaker: ‘The hair on my back just sticks up’

That’s funny, the same thing happens to be at the thought of her becoming president.

The powerful National Automobile Dealers Association is facing a backlash over its choice of Hillary Rodham Clinton as the keynote speaker for its big annual convention.

At least a dozen dealers are raising objections about the former secretary of state and possible 2016 Democratic presidential contender as the keynoter at the NADA convention in January. One dealer says he’s not only going to boycott the confab in New Orleans, but is canceling his membership, Automotive News reports.

When I see the announcement that the ‘Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton’ will be giving the keynote address, the hair on my back just sticks up,” the News quotes Jon Lind, general manager of a Ford-Lincoln dealership in Burlington, Colo., as saying.

Naturally she’s getting paid, but won’t say how much, of course. Transparency!

Her speaking fee was not disclosed.

    I’m surprised there’s any car dealers left that aren’t Friends of Bill, after Government Motors pulled dealerships away from guys that weren’t so well-connected.

    Anyone tried to reach Mack McLarty for comment about this?
