Which Is It?

Does it take no brains or bigger balls to be Senator Chris Dodd (D-CON)?

Dodd wants to tax AIG bonus recipients in an effort for the government get back some of the $450 million paid out.

Sounds great until you realize that Dodd...

added an executive-compensation restriction to the bill. That amendment provides an “exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009,” which exempts the very AIG bonuses Dodd and others are seeking to tax.


Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100, according to opensecrets.org.


One of AIG Financial Products’ largest offices is based in Connecticut.

It's what you've come to expect from the man who helped bring us Countrywide Financial, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Here's a little tidbit for St. Patty's Day...

This guy should go the way of the Dodo bird and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Talk about someone who should be committing Harakiri.

For the record I think he has more balls than brains.
