Meet my new political crush:
Speaker Pelosi was kind enough to catch this clip of Rep. Michael Capuano (D-MA) simultaneously tearing 8 CEO’s a new asshole during the House Financial Services Committee hearing on TARP accountability. Let’s just jump right in:
Basically, you come to us today on your bicycles, after buying Girl Scout Cookies and helping out Mother Teresa, telling us, ‘we’re sorry…we didn’t mean it…we won’t do it again! Trust us!‘
“Well, I have some people in my constituency that actually rob your banks. And they say the same thing. They’re sorry. They didn’t mean it. They won’t do it again. Just let ’em out.
“Do you understand that this is a little difficult for my constituents to take that you’ve learned your lesson!!!”
And on and on goes Capuano dripping with proper contempt.
Just a side note, but what was up at about one minute into the video with Barney Frank saying, “We need some oral.” I’m just saying.
