Maintaining the Myth

Maintaining the myth of Obama the good, the noble and prince of peace is getting tougher for Madison Avenue now that Goldman Sachs' golden boy has been caught with his pants down so many times on Wall Street. But Nobel prizes and other trappings of phony philanthropia aren't enough for the bankers' buddy to bamboozle us any more. Soon, as former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown remarked, they'll have to get the Pope to make him a saint.

Grande Finale

Hearst Newspapers (San Francisco Chronicle) launched its cover for Obama and Wall Street today by suggesting his appearance at the conference end signals a "happy ending to the climate finale".

Naturally, the Bamababies will fall all over themselves swooning to more empty promises and false hope from Goldman Sachs golden boy.
