AIG CEO: Bonus Uproar 'Just as Bad' as Racist Lynch Mob

re: #1 Shiplord Kirel

I have to say, though, that he might be on firmer ground if he had invoked the Paris mob and the guillotine.

And really, how do you get to a post as CEO if you’re either so tone-deaf or so bad at expressing coherent thought to say something like this in an interview?

To be really, really charitable: parallels can be drawn with regards to how both these things (tend to) involve, and I’m taking the more hard-line anti-any-kind-of-investment-banking crowd here, thoughtless participation in a kind of mob mentality, “us versus them” thinking, smearing the other parties’ reputation and all that seemingly aimed at increasing coherence (for lack of a better term, sorry) within the own group.
I can see a bit of a point there.
Holy mother of batman scale/severity discrepancy, though…
