It's Bernanke

A new man has been chosen by President Bush for the position of most-powerful-man-in-the-world, Ben Bernanke.

My question is, how long will it be till: a) charges of "cronyism" are spread all over the internet by perfidious Democrats (or will they avoid that in this case because he's a man, one with the requisite elitist credentials?), and b) he is character-assassinated by countless bloggers who have no particular knowledge of him or his background but who believe that they worked hard for Bush's nomination and are therefore entitled to overrule Bush on this matter?

Shall we start a betting pool?

Are they out there yet?

The markets seem to like the guy.

Two things going for him: MIT and Princeton.

Maybe he will be Ivyleague enough for the folks who seem to think these nominations are too important to be left to jack legged elected officials and should instead be made the people who "know best".

I did hear some people were saying he was not conservative enough. really.

Who the hell do these bloggers think they are anyway? What a bunch of opinionated loud mouths.

Damn straight, flenser, damn straight!

Bernanke is obviously totally incompetent and was picked on the basis of his belonging to a secret society at Princeton with links to Skull & Bones. Plus he probably summers in Maine.

I pick 6:15 Pacific and claim the prize based on my comment.

How much was it again?

Thank God, you have seen the light.

I was getting worried about you.
