    From the MSN money page, Kim Peterson:

    Congress wants to crack down on CEO mega-salaries for banks participating in the bailout. And while the politicians argue how best to do that, Alan Fishman of Washington Mutual is headed for the doors with $19 million in his pocket.

    If that wasn't outrageous enough, consider this: Fishman started the job three weeks ago. I never saw the employment ad Fishman answered, but it must have read something like this:

    WANTED: Top executive for train-wreck bank about to be seized by federal regulators. Must be able to look busy while FDIC sells business from under you. Previous experience with angry shareholders sitting on worthless stock a plus. Perks: $7.5 million hiring bonus and $11.6 million cash severance.

    Fishman got the best temp gig in history.

    It think it is complete bullshit that these CEO's get anything.. They should have to forfiet 99% of there severance.. im down for giving them temp money to find a new job to scam over.. but I read something that one guy is supposed to get $65 Million package when the bill goes through.. WTF is this shit. If I was working at a local coffee shop and it was gonna fall under to Starbucks bought it so they could change the name and keep the equipment all i would get is a swift kick in the ass and shown the door we should do the same to thse assholes
