AIG Bonuses

We need to remember that this is a very complicated issue and should extend some leeway to the Obama administration. I mean really, can you imagine trying to sort out that contract when you're trying to read it through 632,000 distractions? It has to be the most difficult job in the world.

While it is absolutely no surprise that they are using tax dollars to pay bonuses, it is inconceivable that we are even remotely shocked by this. This pattern of behavior is long established by none other than our own government. That's right, our congress and presidents for more years than I care to think about, have consistently rewarded themselves regardless of how poorly they perform in their job. Yet those same jerkoffs are now scraping the sand from their collective vaginas over these bonuses and who knew what and when. You want to know who knew what and when? They all knew and they have known about the bonuses for quite some time. What they aren't telling us is that just about every entity that is getting bailout money is going to use some of it to pay bonuses. That is a fact.

Will our outrage lose some steam as more and more of these bailout queens do the exact same thing as AIG? I think so. After all, it's hard to stay upset about what has become the "norm".

In case you're wondering what the 632,000 distractions are, that is the amount donated to the Obama campaign by AIG and its executives. What I really want someone to offer me is that same deal. I give you $632,000 and you hand me back $170,000,000. Any takers?

Politicians fail at math.

We should create NPLB (No Politician Left Behind) and deny them money until they can get those scores up.
