Rush Leads GOP Media Charge In Favor Of AIG Bonuses

Big Tent Democrat's post here (includes audio from Rush Limbaugh's show).

Digby points out that while some Goopers are trying to pin the AIG bonuses on Democrats (not without merit, it is pretty clear the Obama Administration fought to remove any restrictions on bonuses), Rush and the GOP Media hordes are fighting for the AIG bonuses. Says Rush:

A lynch mob is expanding: the peasants with their pitchforks surrounding the corporate headquarters of AIG, demanding heads. Death threats are pouring in. All of this being ginned up by the Obama administration.

The GOP/Fox pitchmen are singing the same tune. "Republicans in Disarray?" Don't hold your breath for the Politico headline to that effect.
