Mr. President, I see that Sunday, the New York Times is announcing your “call for increased oversight of ‘executive pay at all banks, Wall Street firms and possibly other companies’ as part of sweeping plan to ‘overhaul financial regulation’.”
Even though I admit I prefer President ZoBama… and even though I am CEO of a very small teeny-tiny company with executive pay in an embarrassingly low percentile with no bonus, alas… [You don’t deserve one.-ed. Okay, okay, but did you have to say that? People have feelings, you know – even on the Internet.]… scarcely worth any effort… Mr. President, I am in – with one proviso:
I want it all out there. Total transparency, including Timothy Geithner’s TurboTax printouts and Christopher Dodd’s Irish real estate holdings. [Doesn’t Dodd remind you of Claude Rains in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”?-ed. Worse.]
In other words, Mr. President, you want “increased oversight,” let’s have it – for everyone! That includes some of your creepy allies. Otherwise, you’re a hypocrite. Stick it.
[You forgot Charlie Rangel!-ed. I forgot a lot of people. Harry Reid and the Vegas connection! That too.]
