Timmy and Ben get "grilled" by Congress back in March.

The government "watchdog" report to Congress on the AIG bailout has been released by Special Inspector Neil Barofsky. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, while acting as head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has been fingered as costing the taxpayers 85 billions of dollars in the initial bailout in September of 2008 while he directed the Panic Express Money Pinata courtesy of the pliable Congress and an oh so reluctant and now repentant President Bush to the worthy executives of Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street firms, substantially to ensure that bonuses would be paid. Can anyone have any doubt at this time that the Federal Reserve cares not a whit for the public interest or that it is at all affiliated with the interests of the Federal Government as a manifestation of a Democratic People? I am sure Geithner misrepresented on paper or electronic document what he was actually doing in his reports to the rump Congress when he was costermongering AIG. If so, that is a felony under federal law.
The first (rhetorical) question that comes to mind is how could Obama select such a man to run Treasury?
Geithner should be immediately fired and charged so that we may enjoy the sight of him and his cronies making an orange-suited perpetrator walk. I dream, I dream.
But the truth is: after a few moments of appropriate outrage the entire incident will be swept under that lumpy lumpy rug.
Yes, yes this is boring the shit out of you. I know. Me too. Go back to sleep.
