The WSJ reports “Outside Pressure Grows for GM to Oust Wagoner” as part of any bailout deal. Great idea. GM’s Chair and CEO certainly shares of much of the blame for the company’s collapse.

But I agree with SolveClimate and DeSmogblog, that Bob Lutz should also go. He is GM’s greenwasher and global warming denier (see “GM is full of crocks” and “GM’s Lutz is nuts“). And, of course, he is Vice Chair of Global Product Development (and was chair of GM North America from 2001 to 2005) — so he must have something to do with people not wanting GM products.

Probably the worst of all worlds would be oust Wagoner and promote Lutz. That’d be like impeaching and convicting President Bush. Hmm. Maybe Lutz is Wagoner’s job protection plan …
