It's The Honorable Thing To Do

Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley suggested that AIG executives should take a Japanese approach toward accepting responsibility for the collapse of the insurance giant by resigning or killing themselves.
I suggest, you know, obviously, maybe they ought to be removed," Grassley said. "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.
Going by his standards, if AIG execs should resign or commit Seppuku because of the way their spending OUR tax dollars then so should most of Congress. Including Sen. Grassley himself.

So, Sir, here is your Tanto. Get to work.
