Watching the Goldman Sachs hearing, you had to wonder — is it taking place in the Senate or South Park?
While grilling David Sparks, the former head of Goldman’s mortgage department, Sen. Carl Levin (D., Mich.), quoted, paraphrased and practically freestyle rapped Goldman e-mails that involved the words “sh**ty deal.”
“Boy, that Timberwolf was one sh**tty deal,” Levin said, reciting an email about a deal involving subprime mortgages.
“How much of that sh**ty deal did you sell to your clients?” he asked Sparks.
“You knew it was a sh**y deal!” Levin exclaimed, hammering away at Sparks — and that “sh**y deal” phrase.
Levin fired off “sh**y deal” a whopping TEN — I’m sorry, ELEVEN — TIMES, sounding more like South Park’s resident ranter Eric Cartman than a U.S. senator.
“I don’t recall,” said Sparks, with a perplexed look on his face like Kenny, the character they kill off in every South Park episode.
Only, if it were a South Park episode, he could end it by simply saying, “Shut up, Cartman!”
