Political Harikiri

It's too bad that these politicians won't recommend "harikiri" for themselves:
"'Mr. Stearns asked Mr. McKay to resign,' Cao said, referring to Rep. Cliff Stearns. 'Well, in the Asian culture we do things differently. During the Samurai days, we just give you a knife and ask you to commit harakiri.' Harikari is a Japanese ritual suicide performed by soldiers or others who have committed a serious offense or brought shame upon themselves. Cao, Vietnamese-American Republican, mentioned the anger among his constituents at BP's response to the Gulf oil disaster."
