Our early morning IM with a source at Goldman after the jump.

DealBreakerJohn: Dude, did you see Kernen jump?
AnonymousGS: Hahahahaha. I love when they start trying to read off the prompter three seconds after the 8-K hits EDGAR.
DealBreakerJohn: Eh. I can’t make fun of them for instant reactions anymore cuz that’s my job too now.
AnonymousGS: Good luck with that.
DealBreakerJohn: Can we talk about the report for a minute. Looks like two-thirds of the revenue is from the traders. Those guys own you I-Bankers.
AnonymousGS: Look. That’s why we get one president and they a president plus a CEO. Two-to-one ratio. Leadership matches revenues.
DealBreakerJohn: Capitalism. Everyone gets the corporate government they deserve.
