John Kerry Is No Bluto
By Wyatt Earp | March 8, 2009
Although I would much rather John Belushi at the helm of our economic recovery than that horse-faced jackass. The good folks at Bloomberg allowed Mr. Ed to write a piece on the bailouts. My guess is that they thought the end result would be comedy gold.
They were right:
Last week, when American taxpayers learned that a bank receiving Troubled Asset Relief Program funds had thrown a lavish bash and spared no expense to celebrate with the bands Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire, I introduced legislation based on a simple concept: if a company accepts bailout funds from the taxpayer, it can’t waste money on lavish parties, expensive dinners and Tiffany trinkets.
The reaction in some quarters suggests that I had attempted — like a modern-day Dean Wormer in “Animal House” — to ban fun of any kind, or that the wheels of commerce and marketing would grind to a halt.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Normal marketing and travel wouldn’t be affected one iota. (H/T - Bloomberg)
My only response (besides bulls**t) is posted below the fold:
Yeah, it’s obvious, but come on: You laughed a little.
