And to think, some people went nuts when Iowa Senator Charles Grassley said the AIG execs should do like the Japanese and commit suicide to apologize for their mistakes. Here’s his comment, in case you may have forgotten.
Do those comments compare to what’s going on in California? Let’s not even mention the possible $24 billion dollar shortfall that state faces right now (that deficit alone is about four times what Iowa state government spends in a year). Governor Ah-nuld reportedly sent a pair of bull testicles to the state senate president. They were in response to a package the Governator received that contained mushrooms and a note that used them as a metaphor for his “hallucinatory” budget plan that raised taxes. Now that’s politics.
