This is not a terribly credible conspiracy theory.
I was about to make a comment after reading the first paragraph, but then I saw that someone beat me to it several paragraphs down:

A more likely explanation is simply the fact that more Chrysler dealers in general are likely to be Republican contributors, which would mean more of the closed dealers would be seen to be GOP supporters than Democrat supporters: "My hypothesis is that Chrysler dealers, being small businessmen, are more likely to donate to Republicans than Democrats, for predictable reasons. Like any small businessmen, car dealers want lower taxes, a lower minimum wage, fewer regulations, etc."

Also, I didn't see any evidence anywhere that showed the government, and not the Chrysler board of directors, picking which dealerships should be closed.

Re: This is not a terribly credible conspiracy theory.
Yep, like I said in the subject, total coincidence. I'm sure there is a really good reason the criteria for closings hasn't been released. Also, after deposing Chrysler execs, Atty. Bellavia said...

"It became clear to us that Chrysler does not see the wisdom of terminating 25 percent of its dealers. It really wasn't Chrysler's decision. They are under enormous pressure from the President's automotive task force."

But I did link to this article and not other ones in order to include the opposing viewpoint.
