TEA PARTY
: “One o the key psychological characteristics o the Tea Party is its oxymoronic loveo authority fgures coupled with a narcissistic celebration o its own ‘revolutionary’ defance.”
SARAH PALIN
: “Being in the building with Palin that night was a transorma-tive and oddly unsettling experience. It’s a little like having live cave-level accessor the ripping-the-heart-out-with-the-bare-hands scene in Indiana Jones andthe Temple o Doom. A scary-as-hell situation: thousands o pudgy Midwesternconservatives worshipping at the Altar o the Economic Producer, led by a charis-matic arch-priestess letting loose a grade-A war cry.”
MICHELLE BACHMAN
: “Minnesota congresswoman who thought the movieAladdin promoted witchcrat and insisted global warming wasn’t a threat because ‘carbon dioxideis natural.’”
BARACK OBAMA
: “Proved to America that his government couldn’t even winback the right to truly regulate this massive industry, even with a historic mandate at hisback and ater giving away everything he had to trade, conceding even the power totax.”
RAHM EMANUEL
: “An overconfdent and immensely unlikable neo-Svengali, who resembles Karl Rove, only more driven, and with better hair.” CNBC: “more orless openly a propaganda organ or rapacious Wall Street banks, unded by ad revenue rom thefnancial services industry.” Rick Santelli: “basically a hal-baked PR stooge shoveling propagandacoal or bloodsucking transnational behemoths like JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs.”
DAVID BROOKS
: “the archpriest o American conventional wisdom.”
GOLDMAN SACHS
: “No one ever just reerenced “Goldman”; they wouldsay, “those motheruckers” or “those cocksuckers”or “those motheruckingcocksucking assholes at Goldman Sachs.”
GEITHNER, BERNAKE, PAULSON, LARRY SUMMERS, ET AL
:“Scrambled to fnd ways to use taxpayer money to subsidize megamergers that let the banking sectoreven more concentrated than beore.”
SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUNDS
: “Imagine the biggest and most aggressive hedge und on Wall Street, then imagine that that same und is fty or sixty times bigger and outside the reacho any major regulatory authority, and you’ve got a pretty good idea o what an SWF is.”
BEN NELSON
: “One o the all- time leaders in insurance company largesse—noother industry has given him more money in his career, a total that currently stands atover $1.2 million.”
HORIZON BLUE CROSS
: “Operates like a Mafa gang that insists on its protection money.”
BILLY TAUZIN
: “The principal author o the Bush-era prescription drugbeneft bill o 2003—a massive giveaway to the pharmaceutical industry that barredthe government rom negotiating bulk rates or Medicare purchases o drugs.”
ALAN GREENSPAN
: “The biggest asshole in the universe.”
