Come for the Politics, Stay for the Pathologies

Dancing Cheek to Cheek

Meet the two clowns from the political class who, due to a combination of idiocy and corruption, are at least as responsible for the financial meltdown of 2008-09 as anyone on Wall Street.  Here they are stepping up to the mic at the White House today to tell us how their new joint financial reform bill is going to fix the mess that got started in their respective committees. Of course, they don’t think they had a hand in the mess at all. They’ve said it so often and pointed the finger at the capitalist pigs on Wall Street so frequently that they actually believe it now.

Delusion: it’s an occupational hazard in this town full of occupational hazards.

Debit, on the left, and Credit, on the uh, other left.

Debit and Credit’s routine:

Debit: “Hey, Credit!”

Credit: “Yeah, what is it Debit?”

Debit: “Wanna swap?”

Debit and Credit: "bwaahahaha!”

Debit and Credit: So intellectually bankrupt they can’t buy a clue.
