The other night, Lou Dobbs fired the opening salvo in what might be the best rumble since the legendary Biff-McFly smackdown. Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein had apparently been complaining to CNN honcho Jonathan Klein about what a windbag Dobbs is, and so Dobbs decided he’d offer the little guy a chance to prove exactly what a big man he was.
“Perhaps Lloyd would like to come on here and show me the error of my ways and educate me perhaps from his lofty Wall Street perch on how millions of Americans are faring and what their prospects are,”
Biff Dobbs huffed on air. “Lloyd, you certainly… I would love to have you do it. I would love to have you come on and talk to my face, not to my back, partner. I know it’s not the way you do it on Wall Street there, hotshot, but try it here. Come on down. Open invitation.”
Um. We actually can’t even add anything more to this because it is pretty much the best thing ever.
