Helicopter Ben

Even if you think he's awesome and brilliant, based solely on the simple "occasionally people in leadership positions should be accountable for what happens on their watch" principle, it was completely ridiculous that Obama renominated him. Hopefully he does go down. Perhaps we could also start appointing actual liberals to some of these positions (top finance, military, law enforcement, intelligence) that seem to be earmarked for GOP Daddies.

But, more than that, Bernanke sucks. He presided over this disaster, did nothing to prevent it, and now thinks minuscule inflation is a bigger concern than jobs, and gutting social security is more important than increasing tax revenues by helping people to get employed.

Don't let the door hit you, wanker.
