Jay Leno Weighs in on the Detroit Bailout

This is actually funnier than most of his jokes:

“I can’t believe they give these sleazeball financial guys a bailout and not people who actually make a product,” he said. “It’s amazing to me.”

Anyone who follows Leno knows he’s a devoted car guy. If any celebrity outside of Detroit is going to say something positive about the domestic auto industry, it’s him.

“They have great products in the pipeline,” said Leno. “The Volt is a terrific concept that will surpass the Prius.”

He also rattled off the new Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford F-150 as examples of what Detroit is doing right.

The F-150 I can see, but the Camaro and Challenger?
