We put AIG’s Worst Company in American 2009 award in the mail today. Here is the congratulatory letter that accompanied their prize:
Congratulations to AIG for beating Comcast in this year’s final.
This is it, folks. The Final Deathmatch is here. To reach the final round AIG defeated #32 Target, #17 Peanut Corporation of America, #9 Walmart, and #5 Ticketmaster. Comcast had an equally impressive showing, waltzing past formidable opponents such as #30 DirecTV, #14 Capital One, #11 GM, and finally, last year’s returning champion #2 Bank of America (Countrywide, Merrill Lynch) went down in an upset last night.
A loathed entertainment monopoly? Or an economy-wrecking out-of-control insurance company? Which do you hate more?
Here we go people: It’s the Final Countdown. Let’s hear it for the last four companies standing.

Now here is a match-up! One company is trying to avoid bankruptcy in a tough recession, the other struggles with customer service. Which one makes your blood boil?
A bailed out bank? Or the ticket scalper’s best friend? Who makes your blood boil?
We’re on to the Elite 8 and things are really heating up! There are so many macroeconomic implications in this match-up!

A bittersweet goodbye to an incompetent electronics store? Or a kick in the butt to last years returning champion?
An internet auction giant, payment processor and ticket broker? Or a troubled car company that used your bailout money to buy an ad thanking you for your bailout money? Which do you hate more?
The Chase/WaMu banking monster? Or a soon-to-maybe-be-bankrupt-and-or-bailed-out car company?
A clueless cable giant? Or a fee-happy credit card company? Who shall taste your wrath?
A bailed out bank? Or a struggling wireless company? Who offends you more?
