Behind the mock outrage, the truth comes to the surface.

For all of you outraged at the AIG executive bonuses, please turn your anger towards the Democrat who wrote those bonuses into the stimulus bill. Here is a hint, its the same guy who took 103,000 in political contributions from AIG in the last election.

In a dramatic reversal Wednesday, Sen. Chris Dodd confessed to adding language to a spending cap in the stimulus bill last month that specifically excluded executive bonuses included in contracts signed before the bill's passage. Dodd, D-Conn., told FOX News that Treasury officials forced him to make the change. "As many know, the administration was, among others, not happy with the language. They wanted some modifications to it," he said. "They came to us, our staff, and asked for changes, and the changes at the time did not seem that obnoxious or onerous."

Now aint' that a coincidence? His phone number in DC is (202) 224-2823, give him a call and explain why maybe he should be taxed at 90% for the AIG "bonus" he took.

Boy, I can almost feel the Hope and Change.
