Politically Speaking: Grassley cites "stupid people" in Obama Cabinet

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Is U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley getting more plainspoken? He got wrung
through the national news cycle two weeks ago after suggesting that
AIG execs getting big bonuses should either return them or commit
Japanese style hari kari. And today in a conference call with
reporters, he had a line that was so colorful it bears sharing.
Republican Grassley spoke about concerns that the Inspector General
has the staffing and means by which to oversee if the $700 billion in
financial sector bailout money goes where it is supposed to go.
Yesterday on a Senate Finance Committee hearing, Grassley said he
heard governmental oversight isn't working smoothly.
