Darrell Issa Is Hip To John Paulson's Tricks

In 2007, John Paulson's hedge fund donated $15 million to the Center for Responsible Lending. The money was used "exclusively to provide legal assistance to people facing foreclosure to help them stay in their homes." Charity, helping those less fortunate, etc is something rich people sometimes do, either to help their image or because they're not total dicks and would like to give back. Representative Darrell Issa, the greatest mind Washington and Wall Street has ever seen, however, knows better. Oh, he's got this Paulson guy's number. Issa knows that this was not an act of kindness but rather yet another Machiavellian trick by Paulson to inflate the housing bubble as big as he could before popping that shit like he did to the 40 virgins you just know he's got out back, and maniacally laughing his way to the bank.

You know what the American people also have a right to know? Starts with a 'What a' ends with a 'smug, intellectually dishonest little punk you are.' Since we all know this is a baseless attempt to vilify hedge funds in general and Paulon & Co in particular, why don't you back the shit off and devote the time saved to a more admirable pet cause, like personally going under cover to nail those patronizing prostitutes? Oh, you don't know what I'm talking about? That's funny, because I've got the tapes right here.
