Simple question from Glenn Beck today to the crusading Connecticut Attorney General still on his anti-AIG witch hunt:

Under what law are you going after the AIG bonuses?

Blumenthal hemmed and hawed for a painful six minutes before coming up with this:

“Because they are undeserving of it.”

Remember those six chilling words:

“Because they are undeserving of it.”

After blubbering that the law doesn’t require that AIG pay the bonuses, Blumenthal then sputtered that it was bad public policy.

Blumenthal also explained that while he didn’t have the authority to go after corruptocrat Sen. Chris Dodd because he was a federal official, he did feel it right, just, and necessary as state AG to do something more about federal tax money spent on AIG.

Finally, he muttered something about the State Wage Act, tucked his tail between his legs, and slunk off the set — no doubt to go wield his legal powers against other targets (Congress exempted!) that he has deemed “undeserving” of their pay.

Blumenthal gives new meaning to AIG:

Asshats In Government.
