Roland Burris and AIG to America: drop dead

Remember all the three-day outrage over Illinois Senator Roland Burris' admission that, yes, he had been solicited for campaign contributions from former governor Rod Blagojevich, despite previous denials?  Well, Burris ain't goin' anywhere and nobody is pushing him out.

Now - it seems to me - AIG is adopting the same "pound sand" attitude.  George Will said it best on Sunday's edition of "This Week": the federal government deemed AIG "too big to fail" so now what are we going to do?  Where's the government's leverage?  Instead, you're going to watch AIG grab their bonuses and, if you don't like it, go suck an egg.

It's called an employment contract. You have to declare bankruptcy to break them.
