OK. So that's not exactly what Rep. Joesph Cao (R-LA) said, but it's pretty close.
While addressing BP America President Lamar McKay during a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing Tuesday, Rep. Cao suggested that instead of resigning, McKay should consider doing himself in by committing hara-kiri, a ritual suicide by disembowelment!
"Well, in the Asian culture, we do things differently. During the Samurai days, we'd just give you the knife and ask you to commit hara-kiri," said Cao, who is Vietnamese-American. "My constituents are still debating on what they want me to ask you to do."
