I Don't Usually Laud Republicans...

But this is DEFINITELY the headline of the day:

Grassley to AIG Execs: Resign or Commit Suicide
The article goes on to say:
Senator Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, made his comments on the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, radio station WMT on Monday.
"The first thing that would make me feel a little bit better toward them (is) 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," Grassley said.

"And in the case of the Japanese," he added, "they usually commit suicide before they make any apology."
Totally awesome! Maybe there IS some hope the Republicans will come around and start doing good for the American people.

Or, more likely, the Grassley's comments were made to deflect blame FROM the Republicans...

Sorry. I don't applaud people telling other people to commit suicide... no matter how deep the financial scandal. It's a stupid and irresponsible statement.

I THINK it was just an expression... :)

I liked it because it was funny, and in a way, those execs HAVE committed career suicide already.
