And a current and former Fed chair discuss legacies over IM.

GaldalFed: oof
GaldalFed: brutal
Maestro69: what?
GaldalFed: re: Krugman…
Maestro69: hold
GaldalFed: the post…about your FT thing
GaldalFed: k
Maestro69: no idea what you’re talking about
Maestro69: was the guttersnipe trying to blame me for that contracted period of economic dislocation? he needs new material
GaldalFed: it was in response to your FT op-ed saying we should repeal Dodd-Frank
GaldalFed: http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/30/the-exceptional-mr-greenspan/?smid=tw-NytimesKrugman&seid=auto
GaldalFed: “Alan Greenspan continues his efforts to cement his reputation as the worst ex-Fed chairman in history”
GaldalFed: ouch
GaldalFed: not that we care what he thinks :)
Maestro69: is that a joke? you think I actually might? the only time that bearded fruit even registers on my radar is when I’m trying not to blow my load too fast and picture his face. he was of particular help the weekend I spent last summer at Buffett’s bunny ranch.
GaldalFed: ha
GaldalFed: you the man
GaldalFed: it’s kind of funny tho…
GaldelFed: how things have changed
Maestro69: sec
GaldelFed: k
Maestro69: back
Maestro69: what’s kind of funny
GaldelFed: oh just you know how when you were in office you had 3 staffers clipping all your glowing press or as you like to call them “HJ’s without clean up”
Maestro69: yes I remember that
GaldelFed: and now people are saying stuff about you like krugman
GaldalFed: and they’re saying I’m going to be remembered for saving the economy
GaldalFed: and that you’re an out of touch old man and it’s only a matter of time before you’re complete irrelevant?
Maestro69: lol Benji
Maestro69: first off, do you even know what the point of the FT op-ed was? it’s a little game I’ve been playing for the last couple years called:
Maestro69: FUCKING
Maestro69: WITH
Maestro69: PEOPLE
Maestro69: think about it, professor
Maestro69: what’s the true test of a baller? burning down the house and then not only not saying you’re sorry, but loitering in the rubble, inserting your two cents about how the rebuilding effort is a joke, pissing in their faces etc.
GandelFed: okay…
Maestro69: as for so-called “relevance”? you know how relevance is defined? In cheddar. Coin. Bills. And I don’t have enough g-strings to stuff mine.
Maestro69: I always have and always will own every bitch’s ass in corporate america
Maestro69: the paulson consulting isn’t the only gig I’ve got going, to say nothing of the 300 large I pocket every September for giving a 5 minute speech and sipping pina coladas headlining UBS conference’s in the Maldives
Maestro69: you know what’s in store for you when you finish your measly second term, which you only got because i said “give the kid a break”?
Maestro69: jack shit
Maestro69: no cushy gigs on the other side
Maestro69: you’ll be back to playing D&D with your fellow academics
GaldalFed: that’s not true
Maestro69: oh but it is, Gilligan
GaldalFed: you’re a jerk
Maestro69: preacha tellin’ the truth and it hurts!
Maestro69: as for the lack of love from the mainstream media?
Maestro69: I’m okay with your boy from Princeton maligning me in his little blog
Maestro69: Considering to this day I could submit an excerpt of my forthcoming memoir “If I Did It” or a play by play of me choking out the EIC of the FT and they’d print it, no questions asked. Not to mention the 12-page retrospective they’re planning for my jubilee entitled Project “Best Fed Chair Eva”
Maestro69: remember that when you’re scrounging around for loose change, or for a writeup of your autobiography.
GandelFed: I hate you.
Maestro69 has signed off

    Your locked in a cell with Krugman dressed up in black leather with heels and Greenspan in a tight catwoman outfit. You have a baby pool full of KY and a gun with 1 bullet – what do you do?

    Is this a real transcript of their conversation?

  18. Posted by Gust | March 30, 2011 at 6:51 PM

    I hate to be on Krugman’s side in any way whatsoever but to be fair the quote is: “cement his reputation as the worst ex-Fed chairman” – hes calling him the worst EX chairman. Theres a subtle but important difference there. Other than that I have no concerns?

  19. Posted by Guest | March 30, 2011 at 6:51 PM

    is this something you actually thought was funny enough to type out and post?

  20. Posted by Guest | March 30, 2011 at 6:53 PM

    that’s exactly what the headline says, so, yeah, you shouldn’t ahve any concerns.

    Choking out the EIC of the FT before nutting in his eye is def the NKI

  29. Posted by JR | March 30, 2011 at 9:02 PM

    No, just that old had from NBC news. Nevertheless, considering he makes Mr. Magoo look like Favio, not a bad catch for him.

    By the way, “the only time that bearded fruit even registers on my radar is when I’m trying not to blow my load too fast and picture his face.” was my favorite.
