C’mon, people. It’s only $165 million! What’s the big deal?


This is a trifling amount of money when our economy is on fire and when AIG is hemorrhaging billions.


"Now think about it this way – maybe I’m missing something, but the outrage seems to be about ‘M’s – millions of dollars, right? Hundred and sixty five dollars, OK? I would think that it should be looked at as a pretty big positive because when you go from the ‘M’, maybe you should try to go to the ‘B’s – which is the billions of dollars. And maybe that’s going to even enlighten for the ‘T’ – trillions of dollars."

Just One Wingnut:

Sad to say, in the grand scheme of the AIG debacle $165 million is peanuts.

It’s kinda funny being lectured on numerical perspective from the same people that tried to blow up the recovery bill in the midst of the collapse of the global economy because they found 2% of it objectionable, and are as a result of the bill’s passage PROTESTING OBAMA’S SOCIALISM!!11!!!1! by teabagging each other all over the country while encouraging people to ‘Go Galt’ and cheat on their taxes — mostly because the tax rate for the richest 1% of Americans was returned to 1990s levels.

But that’s wingnuts for you.
