Please, Sir, I want… a bit less? I didn’t make this up:
Rumors are circulating that President Obama is planning to appoint Larry Summers to replace Ben Bernanke as head of the Federal Reserve. This would be a terrible mistake…. Join The Nation in imploring President Obama not to appoint Larry Summers.
Much to enjoy here, but I will confine myself one observation: If Obie appoints that cannibal Summers to the Fed, it most certainly won’t be a ‘mistake’. In fact it will be business — and I do mean business — as usual.
