We’re all familiar with the “travesty” of AIG executives receiving retention bonuses at a time when the failing insurance giant is receiving an enormous lifeline, courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers. During the wildly overdone uproar last month, vile hypocrite Bawney Fwank was all-too-happy to grill embattled AIG CEO Edward Liddy over the payment of the bonuses, and Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa went as far as suggesting that AIG execs should do the honorable thing and kill themselves. That’s great. It’s so nice to see all of this indignation from a body (the U.S. Congress) that is embarrassingly replete with tax cheats, liars, and all-around dirtbags; chutzpah can be a wonderful thing, I suppose, if you’re arrogant enough to express it and those around you haven’t enough spine to call you out. As for me, I'm waiting to see if any of these esteemed members of congress will be tossing themselves from a tall building in the wake of the lynching given the American taxpayer atop Mount Porkulus.
