Funny how these things work

Remember, kids: It's beyond the pale of human decency even to consider refusing millions of dollars in bonus money to white-collar AIG workers for no good reason other than that their company would have collapsed into the abyss without hundreds of billions of federal dollars. They had contracts, after all.

On the other hand, it's absolutely mandatory that blue-collar autoworkers, some (but nowhere near all) of whom get six-figure annual compensation including benefits, be forced to renegotiate their pay packages downward for the good of the nation. They had union contracts, after all.
