What, it was like a secretary? Clearly, the administration flunky or whoever asked you to do this, dude, is not going to stand up and name him- or herself. “Yeah, it was me, my bad, I’m positively eager to take responsibility and become the most hated person in America right now, whoopsie daisy, sorry ’bout that.” Clearly that is not going to happen, so who was it? TALK.
I also reiterate my point of earlier today that once we started bailing out these people, knowing they were fuckups, we really had no right to begin expecting them not to be fuckups anymore, because that’s not how the world works. I’m not defending the bonuses; I am saying hey, this is why the club of the most of us looked at the bailouts in the first place and said “… the fuck?”
Most of us have seen first hand the excesses of corporate America for years, and having seen my own not-so-benevolent overlord squander 12 K on “summer drinks” while telling me I couldn’t have 10 K for journalism, I find myself with a surprise deficit. I expected this. In fact, I expected it to be worse. It’s why my response to the bailouts was oh, fuck you, you won’t bail out NOLA or the auto companies or the pressmen’s union but you’ll bail out these dickheads, don’t they have some bling they could sell?
It’s nice that you’re going to replace Liddy as the most hated man in America for the next ten minutes, Chris, and while we’re talking, don’t open your mouth about anything of consequence to Wolf Blitzer ever again. You’ll only frighten the poor dear.
Also, as long as we’re castigating people in public who wrote shitty memos that cost us lots of money, Doug Feith continues to be employed, and his memos had the added special bonus of making lots of people DEAD, so don’t come at me all, “WHAR IS UR GOD NOW” because you cannot pay me to care.
