Seppuku for AIG Execs

I have no love for the AIG execs that hold a good deal of responsibility for our current economic crisis, but I would never call for them to commit suicide. Not so conservative Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, he thinks they need to do some belly cutting.
"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".

Someone needs to investigate why we continue to elect people like Grassley to represent us in the US Senate.

Sounds to me like we need to elect MORE people like Grassley to the Senate. Any company that begs for billions of dollars in bailout money that WE have to pay and then uses it to pay out bonuses to FAILED executives?

They SHOULD commit Seppuku!

So let me get this straight. Are these the same guys that Grassley, and other conservatives, claim needed tax breaks during the Bush years....and continue to claim need tax breaks? And, it they do commit suicide, they shouldn't owe any "death taxes". Sorry, but I don't follow the logic.
