So far those on Team "I'm here for the gang bang" include PIMCO, BlackRock, MetLife, TCW Group and the NY Fed but there is always room for one more. Surely someone else out there is feeling incensed about some stuff that went down at Countrywide and is looking to take action.
In related news, I know this must seem like bad news for Bank of America and maybe it is. But let's focus on the positive-- it's great news for someone and that someone is [drum-roll please]...ANGELO MOZILO, PROVEN ORACLE!

So he's got to be feeling prettay prettay prettay good right now.
