I told her that it was intended to be a compliment à la you're the Money Honey but powerful and in leather and carrying a whip but I don't think it helped much. MDubs did concede, however, that "it could be worse" and that her mother "loves" the moniker which really? Is all we're after here: the mom endorsement. Unfortunately Vikram Pandit was not present at the party last night for Andrew Ross Sorkin's new book, Too Big To Fail, as a demo on the spreader and truss bar would've been nice but maybe next time. John Mack was there, though not offering himself up for an impromptu primer. JM held court in the back room for most of the evening, where he told us that contrary to popular belief he is "not retiring" but merely shedding the CEO title. Being Chairman of Morgan Stanley is a full-time job, and he will be in the office everyday come January, for those of you thinking he'd be taking it easy in North Carolina. No Lloyd Blankfein, which stung, but his loss, right? We don't need that guy and his blood sucking ways. Jamie Dimon did his part repping for the "hot piece of ass" CEO contingent and fresh off an afternoon set at the Laugh Factory was Bill Ackman, on a roll with the prison warden jokes. Also working the room:


A fit looking Ken Griffin (he's been working out), yogi-cum-triathlete Dan Loeb, Ron Perelman, retired Car Czar Steve Rattner, Barry Diller, Maria Bartiromo, Becky Quick, Carl Quintanilla, Rob Kindler, Jeff Zucker, producer Brian Grazer, who cornered Mack and who fingers crossed will have the vision to cast GOB* in whatever he comes up with for a possible crisis flick (though I'm not sure in which role so feel free to throw out some ideas), and Jack Welch, disease free!
Missed: Ken Lewis, Dick Fuld. The former absence is understandable-- he was probably throwing his own kegger. But what is Dick's excuse?
*Grazer produced Arrested Development.

Pesky Shareholder Asks John Mack if He Actually Used Foul Language

We couldn’t help notice that some clueless shareholder had the audacity to ask John Mack whether he really told Tim Geithner to go fuck himself in the midst of the financial crisis. Mack has admitted several times that Andrew Ross Sorkin’s account of him in the book “Too Big To Fail” was accurate. Mack’s actual words, according to the book, were, “tell him to get fucked,” or something along those lines.
