My favorite vitamin

Quick, someone spot the irony:

President Obama, on the AIG bonuses: "But what's just as important is that we make sure we don't find ourselves in this situation again, where . . .the wealth generated in good times goes to those who are at the very top of the income ladder."

. . .but ALL THE WAY BACK in January, then President-elect Obama got a $500,000 advance to allow the publisher of his book to release a made-for-teens version of his book.

Isn't that like a retention bonus? And how much will that bonus be taxed on next year's returns?

Hypocrisy for breakfast, anyone?
