From Countdown Jonathan Turley weighs in on the outrage over the AIG bonuses. Turley believes that it would be much easier to get the money back from AIG rather than the individuals who received the bonuses. He also notes where some the anger over this should be directed:

Turley: And I think part of the anger here really shouldn't be directed at AIG. We all knew what AIG was. The anger, and legitimately can be directed at Congress and both parties. I mean you have these members going around expressing complete shock. But you know when you give billions and billions of dollars to the Pirates of Penzance you can hardly be surprised if they, you know, spend it on women and grog.

Can you help us out?
