    Who is John Thain? Well, until today he was head of the portion of Bank of America that used to be Merrill Lynch, where he had been CEO since last January until Merrill Lynch hit an iceberg last fall.

    And with extravagances like the aforementioned office redecoration, you can see why.

    For all you who claim we HAVE TO HAVE THE BAILOUT, enjoy the knowledge that this is where your bailout money goes.

    This guy must be hung on the floor of the NYSE, on pay-per-view.

    I am not exaggerating in the least.

    Disgusting bastard, every bit as awful as any murderer.

    I'd settle for a printer that works.

    As anti-death penalty as I am, sometimes the pissed off side of me thinks China has it right in this one instance.

    I didn't click on the links but I read yesterday that his personal driver made $238,000 last year.

    That is where your bailout money is going.

    You would clean up the majority of the problem.

    I don't care about the office and the driver as much as the $4 billion in bonuses he gave to his executive pals, including $10 million for himself, just before the company reported a $15 billion fourth-quarter hit.
