"Screw you guys, I'm going home." A phrase made famous by Cartman from South Park but one that we find so apt for news coming out of General Motors this afternoon. Royally irked over the ending of alliance talks with Renault/Nissan, billionaire investor Kirk Kerkorian has announced that he won't buy an additional 12 million shares of GM stock as he said he would, and that his advisor/muscle Jerry York has resigned his seat from the board of General Motors. The additional 12 million shares would've pumped Kerkorian's share of GM from 9.9 percent to around 12 percent. What will Kerkorian do now after his move to manhandle GM management has failed? Who knows, as this guy has been anything but predictable.
