"Goldman Sachs is a giant vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money."

Best quote ever!

He'd be the first press secretary to ask some idiot RW hit man pseudo-journalist, "What kind of fucking question is that? Fucking idiot. Next!"

although, he would probably be more "british" with his insult. The best english language insults are always done by the brits.

No, that's French. Anything in French sounds polite.


It's got to be word choice and position. Reading Jane Austin will teach one how to insult while being polite.

All the Chucktodds would have to start actually working to knowledgeably keep up. Because with Taibbi's gift for clearly
& entertainingly explaining reality...the public would be better informed than the lazy MSM.

Win win

Bernie is the most completely honest person I've seen in politics in my lifetime. I tend to be blunt like Bernie and it's not always a likable trait. A lot of people really don't want to hear the truth. But, to me honesty is far more important than polish. Put enough layers of polish on something and it stiffens up and looks artificial and acts artificial...and it's real soul dies inside a little more with each layer of polish, because it can't breath any more.

Bernie is like a breath of fresh air.
