Well, if you look real close, you can already see the signs.
After all, as we all know, the last words Jesus said dying on the cross were not
forgive them Father, they know not what they do but were actually Remember my children, no new taxes....
Or was that Ronnie Rayguns? I get the two mixed up, and I think the Republicans do as well.

Yes, we have finally scoped it down to the truly critical issue facing America, the economy and the future of the Republic:
Senate Republicans brake rush to tax AIG bonuses

Or more correctly, the AIG Financial Services Derivative Traders.
Ok, folks, WHAT is the difference in context, between what the RR supplicants in Congress did over Terry Schaivo, and using the US Tax code as a weapon to quell the outrage, which, come on, these senators could give a Rat's Patootie about except their phones are ringing off the hook and the media is in a feeding frenzy.

Well it's been a pretty bleak day, but once again I am reminded why, no matter what, we are better off with Obama as President then McCain/Palin
One more small comment, after the jump...

Ok folks, I have said my piece about the misplaced outrage here, but clearly, if there is a smoking gun that shows Timmy Boy pushed the Oly Snowe clause out of the Stim bill that would have short-circuited this bonus outrage, He needs to step down.
But, at 81 years old, can we call on Paul Volker to step into the firestorm?

Played for suckers...Again!
What the hell is going on, what is wrong with people?
All this outrage at the AIG financial services group, over what, .02 percent of the bail-out money?
For goodness sakes haven't you seen this before, doesn't it look familiar?

Come on, you know it's coming. He's not going to wait for the vote of no-confidence, he's going to volunteer to step down For the Good of the Party...To spend more time with his family....to pursue other opportunities in the private sector. Hell, this crap almost writes itself.

It's hard to know where to begin with your daily rage these days, but this one really makes me want to go V for Vendetta all over these Masters of the Universe.
Of course, there is no surprise here. Clearly, these guys refused to accept that the existent corporate environment, one that had always deeply rewarded those higher-ups involved in a merger/acquisition, had changed. In the midst of a colossal storm, these big swinging dicks acted as if it was still the middle of summer on the sunniest of sunny days.
