Spare Me

Listening to Chuck Schumer on the radio railing about the AIG bonuses was a bit much.

I mean, Schumer personally carried the water for the hedge fund plutocrats when someone threatened to actually make them pay taxes on their billions in income. They made money during the Wall Street feeding frenzy that made the AIG bonuses pale in comparison yet paid taxes at rates lower than their secretaries due to their abuse of the tax code.

Schumer, Senator from Wall Street and recipient of massive contributions from same made sure their gilded status was protected from the evil tax collectors. And now he's up in arms about the AIG bonuses.

Just because he's a Democrat doesn't mean he's not a hypocrite, opportunist, band- wagoniste wanker.
