Bankster of the Day
Lots of candidates here, but I think this is the best:
Richard Davis, CEO of U.S. Bancorp (USB), said a proposal to tax bonuses paid to employees of companies that accept government aid wasn't discussed at the meeting, despite widespread public outrage - and administration rhetoric - over the bonuses doled out to executives at American International Group Inc. (AIG).
"We understand there have been some optics that have been very negative. We apologize for that because it's not something that this industry supports or wants," Davis said.
He's apologizing for "bad optics"?!?!??!?!??! To whom?
[Reach me that pitchfork, wouldja hon?]
And if "bad optics" isn't a Versaillogism, I don't know what is...
