My new favorite senator

March 17, 2009

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a Republican. Why? This, in response to AIG lavishing executives with million dollar bonuses while suckling at the federal teat: “Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley suggested that AIG executives should take a Japanese approach toward
accepting responsibility for the collapse of the insurance giant by
resigning or killing themselves.”

And he elaborates: “I suggest, you know, obviously, maybe they ought to be removed. But I would suggest the first thing that would make me
feel a little bit better toward them if they’d follow the Japanese
example and come before the American people and take that deep bow and
say, I’m sorry, and then either do one of two things: resign or go
commit suicide. And in the case of the Japanese, they usually commit suicide

Got that, AIG asshats? Chuck Grassley will only like you when you’re fucking dead. So get on that.
