[tuesday laugh] today's comic lines

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!

Oh this is absolutely classic:

Meredith Whitney lifts Wall Street after urging clients to buy Goldman Sachs

Ms Pretty urges all those who lost out to buy the [alleged] profiteer's and [alleged] in-trader's stocks to do what? To buoy the market? Ah, I see - the new, post-crisis Goldman Sachs market.

How many billion people can see through this? The best part though is that the Telegraph reports it as "Goldman Buoys Markets", i.e. a fait accompli, already done, over with.

Here's another one to have you rolling on the floor:

Sotomayor vows impartiality if confirmed to the court.

"Honestly, I'll take back all [alleged] racist remarks and never do it again, truly ruly, please believe me [flutters eyes beguilingly]."

James, Meredith made it quite clear that GS has profit lines not available to other "banks".

The market rally was orchestrated, and yes, on the back of GS/Meredith, aided and abetted by nonsense algorithms of rocket scientist traders, BUT, it was to destroy the value of options that expire this friday.

You have to hand it to GS/Morgan et al - they do it well.

So we now expect a drop after this week?

Let's wait and see.

...she'll take back all the racists remarks, then perhaps add 'payasos' under her breath ('clowns', meaning fools).
