(Apologies in advance for the profanity and general shrillness.)
Douchebags (and the Nerds Who Love them). Okay, so I get that the Administration has decided that it would be counterproductive to alienate Wall Street completely. And I don’t necessarily disagree with that. But this sort of stuff really fucking pisses me off. Who the fuck do these Wall Street douchebags think they are? Basically, they really appear to have adopted the position of the action-movie villain, summarized nicely on This American Life by Simon Johnson thusly: “That sure is a nice global economy you’ve got. Be a shame if anything happened to it.” Time to bring down the hammer, Barry.
Assholes. Nino Scalia is a fucking homophobe. That is not news. But good on Barney Frank for saying so. It’s about time we start treating him and the rest of his nutjob fellow-travelers with the respect they deserve.
Retards. Since Fire Joe Morgan went on permanent hiatus, I’ve had to go out and actually seek out really retarded baseball commentary on my own, and as a result, it’s been quite a while since I’ve read something this eye-poppingly stupid. Kudos, “ETVal.” (whoever that is! omglol!!!!!!!111)
