Drudge: Chicago Traders Revolting

Fucking douchebag of the day:

Drudge: Chicago Traders Revolting

I agree, they’re very revolting.

Drudge is running a siren headline that reads “TRADERS REVOLT: CNBC HOST CALLS FOR NEW ‘TEA PARTY’; CHICAGO FLOOR MOCKS OBAMA PLAN,” featuring a rant by CNBC’s Rick Santelli, egged on by irate traders on the Chicago trading floor. He calls for a “Chicago Tea Party,” to the enthusiastic whistling of the douchebag next to him. Here’s the video:

Now, you tell me: Do you really want to listen to a lecture about paying your mortgage from these guys? With trillions of your money set to bail out the financial industry, do you want to hear them talking about all of your extra bathrooms?

Sure, some people acted irresponsibly, although on a microscopic scale compared to Wall Street, but many people facing foreclosure got there with help from these panicky a-holes. See, we’re all in this together when it comes to saving their sorry asses, but then it’s all about personal responsibility when it comes to a family who can’t pay their bills.

I think Santelli’s on the right track with his “tea party” idea, but maybe it’s his cowboy trader buddies who ought to hoarde the life preservers.
