Though I must say, I was amused when Bernanke said yesterday that his job as chairman of the Federal Reserve wasn't to bail out risk-taking and mistaken major Wall Street investors. I'm sorry, Mr Bernanke, you obviously haven't read your job description. Because that's exactly what you're paid so handsomely to do. You muppet.
