That was snappy, wasn't it? AIG already has its hands on $28bn of that bridge loan (Fed release here). No points for wondering if this is a bridge of the Alaskan variety.

Total withdrawals via the Fed disount window were over 5 times last week's. Just don't ask to see the collateral.

    Since we taxpayers own the company, and since it is managed by our 535 congress critters; AIG did not tap into our savings, we tapped into our savings!

    Welcome to socialism!
