Grand Slam

This not-so-handsome fellow gave one of the greatest quotes of all time.  Can you even recognize him?

Well, here is one of the all time greatest quotes about Tim Geithner:

“The audacity of that p—k in front of the American people announcing he was deciding whether or not a firm of this stature and this whatever was good enough to get a loan,” he said. “Like he was the determining factor, and it’s like a flea on his back, floating down underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, getting a h–d-on, saying, ‘Raise the bridge.’ This guy thinks he’s got a big d–k. He’s got nothing, except maybe a boyfriend. I’m not a good enemy. I’m a very bad enemy. But certain things really—that bothered me plenty. It’s just that for some clerk to make a decision based on what, your own personal feeling about whether or not they’re a good credit? Who the f–k asked you? You’re not an elected officer. You’re a clerk. Believe me, you’re a clerk. I want to open up on this f—-r, that’s all I can tell you.”

It is terrible and beautiful to behold even after all of these years.  It is the ultimate Grand Slam.

  1. Hint: a bridge playing CEO, hence the term ‘grand slam’. The initials of the company he piloted were BS as in Bear Stearns. That’s right its Jimmy Cayne who played bridge while Rome burned.
