The wrath of Chucky
I just heard about this on WSUI: yesterday, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley suggested that executives of AIG should either quit or kill themselves.
From the AP:
"I suggest, you know, obviously, maybe they ought to be removed," Grassley said. "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 before they make any apology."
Awesome. Pure art. Of course he backtracked a bit today — Grassley's spokesman did some pathetic damage control and said he wasn't calling for anyone to kill themselves (really?) — but I hope a few people take his advice.
