"Whereas the Corvette is truly a symbol of American pride"

What the motherfucking hell is our government up to down there?

The House yesterday designated (by voice vote) this coming Monday as National Corvette Day, introduced by Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill).
"H. Res. 970

In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

June 26, 2008.
Whereas the Chevrolet Corvette is America's first sports car;

Whereas the first production Corvette rolled off a Flint, Michigan, assembly line on June 30, 1953;

Whereas the Corvette is now manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky;

Whereas the Corvette is the most widely respected production sports car in United States history;

Whereas the Corvette is truly a symbol of American pride;

Whereas General Motors is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2008; and

Whereas the 30th of June would be an appropriate day to designate as `National Corvette Day': Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the United States House of Representatives supports the designation of a `National Corvette Day' to honor the Chevrolet Corvette."
I'm sure GM will be celebrating this on Monday, what with their stock at 53-year lows.
