AIG bonuses–yawn

I’m not “outraged” at the bonuses, I’m amused that politicians are pandering by pretending to be outraged. The politicians got us in this mess by not putting strings on the TARP money.

At first I thought he was just scoping out the girl’s ass, as would be typical of most guys his age. But the chick and her (rather hot) dog left, he kept his attention directed on the dog shit instead of the chick. I was too shocked to be protective of my  next meal. Continue reading
