His plan is fairly simple: "put Lloyd Blankfein in pound-me-in-the-ass prison."
Naturally he shared this idea with Matt Taibbi, a journalist known for, among other things, lashing out at people in violent ways when he doesn't agree with them, "on a dreary, snowy night in Washington this past month."
"You put Lloyd Blankfein in pound-me-in-the-ass prison for one six-month term, and all this bullshit would stop, all over Wall Street," says a former congressional aide. "That's all it would take. Just once."
This hasn't happened, Taibbi notes, "because the entire system set up to monitor and regulate Wall Street is fucked up." Suspending reality for a moment so that we don't even have to touch on the notion that that is the reason this hasn't happened, and if not for that one reason it would've, I'd like to propose a deal, on Blankfein's half, who I think will be game. LB will take one for Team Sanity and grant Taibbi and his anonymous source their wish, if in exchange, we get to pick a scenario they must submit to. Ideas that come to mind-which have been admittedly ripped off- include Blankfein getting to throw scalding hot coffee in MT's face or smashing a pie filled with horse semen in his mug.
