By now, everyone knows that the US Senate confirmed Ben Bernanke for a second four-year term by a cloture vote of 77-23 (the “actual” vote was a sham, I’ll talk about later). The vote really wasn’t so much about Bernanke as it was a very basic intelligence test of our elected officials. They failed miserably. Anyone who supported Bernanke may as well have gotten “I have no idea what the fuck just happened” tattooed across their forehead. Hey, it’s your forehead, babe.
More importantly though, you’ve proved beyond any doubt, that you’re unfit to lead. Healthcare reform? Hahaha. No thanks, not from you numbskulls. Financial reform??? Get bent, seriously. Please confine your activities to spitball fights until replacements can be found.
