The Lyrics

Hey, hey, Paulson, you are a scary dude.
Hey, hey Paulson, your head glistens like oil, crude.
You waited so long, one more tool and screw-
up in Dubya's all-appalling crew.

What gall. You want given to you
Power, all, to blow nearly a trillion. Whew!
If I recall you, a Goldman Sachs shill.
Now you want our bucks? Get real!
Sly shmuck, sly putz.

Screwups have damaged the system, dude,
And you're one of them, you of head nude.
Screwups chosen by the goonish loon,
Nitwit with no aptitude.
Why us?! Why us?!

Hey, hey Paulson, there will be grateful dudes
On Wall Street, once the rest of us you've screwed.
True love means scamming gold parachutes
For your old Goldman Sachs prostitutes.
True love means raiding the taxpayers soon,
Wishing we paid all to you.
Sly shmuck, sly putz.

There's plenty more blame to go around than just Wall Street, including administrations from Clinton's back to Woodrow Wilson, but handing a blank check from the taxpayers to this guy (or anyone) isn't the answer and isn't fair. Super title switch and execution on a fave oldie to a knave old-y. I vote $555,000,000,000.

I agree with my fellow MBA that it is hard to tell who is more at fault - the bankers who made bad loans or the federal government that concocted a Community Reinvestment Act and other superflous legislation that went out of control. Well spoofed, John, particularly the "parachutes/prostitutes" couplet.

John Jenkins, the CRA, and especially the Clinton Administration's forced rape of time-tested lending criteria (CCC), was *exactly* what I was referring to in saying that the blame went from Clinton back to the creation of the paper-money-printing Fed in the first place.
