Why are we using a picture of Lord Monckton?Washington! “Goldman Sachs is launching an aggressive response to its political and legal challenges with an unlikely ally at its side — President Barack Obama’s former White House counsel, Gregory Craig. The beleaguered Wall Street bank hired Craig — now in private practice at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom — in recent weeks to help in navigate the halls of power in Washington, a source familiar with the firm told POLITICO.”

When he was forced out a few months ago, you kind of had to feel sorry for him (well, very very slightly sympathetic, let’s say) (okay, you didn’t have to feel shit for him, and no one did), having to take the blame for all of the problems getting Gitmo closed. Is this his revenge now? No, someone is just paying him well. Much like the super-populist union-friendly man of the people Dick Gephardt, who is now of course a demonic mega-lobbyist for the big banks.

How do any of these people sleep at night? Xanax? CHILD’S PLAY. Let’s go with either morphine or dead Michael Jackson’s harvested blood stream. Or Dragon Scales, but those are a bitch to find.

Congratulations on securing your first lobbyist ever, Goldman Sachs!
