Brevity is the soul of sarcasm.

Dan Beebe, in response to the news that the Department of Justice has invited Bill Hancock to come in for a little chat about the BCS:  “It’s good to know that they’ve chased down all of the people who have caused our banking system to have problems.”

    After giving Goldman’s execs big bonuses and waiving taxes on other big companies, there just wasn’t anything else to do.

    The DOJ doesn’t want to expose their own failings in the matter, much easier bully someone else.

    This is the worst part of this whole thing. Its mixing politics and football and its obnoxious.

    I certainly don’t disagree that politicians don’t really have a place in this debate, but I get tired of this idea that politicians can only do one thing at a time. These people have big staffs. They have a lot of communications capabilities that go beyond your Blackberry. They’re capable of tackling more than one issue at a time. It makes me shake my head the same as when I see people talking about how much time George W. spent on the ranch in Crawford or how much time President Obama spends on Air Force One. You can get more accomplished in two hours in the office on AF1 or in the presidential retreat than I can get done in a week.

      What if we don’t want them to “accomplish” anything?


      • Go Dawgs!

        Then vote that way and lobby that way. But that’s not the same thing as bagging on someone for working on something inconsequential like college sports while other tasks haven’t been accomplished. In fact, I’d say it’s the exact opposite.

    Is Beebe comparing the fiasco of Wall Street to the fiasco of the BCS & NCAA? Seems he’s not arguing they haven’t done (or continue to do) anything wrong.

    Predictions on how Bill’s little chat with the DOJ will go after Beebe’s remarks:

    “This won’t end well.”

    “Scrotologist”? Do you mean Cojoneslogia? Or perhaps Noballsatallia?


    • Dog in Fla

      Heck, i have no idea how anyone comes up with what they call themselves. i assumed he named himself that because he thinks he’s board certified in the study of scrotums but i could be wrong

      “Scrotology – The physiological, pathophysiological, anatomical as well as politico-socioeconomic study of the male scrotum”

      But why broadcast that? Of course, if it’s a she rather than a he, then it becomes less repulsive and more of a Nurse Ratched-type of turn on.

    Nurse Ratchet = Noballsatallia. Let’s don’t get started on the subject of Taint. You know the area.

    DOJ has no plans to hunt down the Wall Street criminals that are STILL screwing us. To much money that went and is still going to his bosses re-election campaign. Better to hunt down some good old boy who took clients out for some hand jobs. The nation will be much safer this way.
