Matt Taibbi's Response To Jake/Jason DeSantis

Matt Taibbi's thorough and absolute destruction of Jake/Jason DeSantis is such a masterpiece that I will not excerpt even a single sylabble, just go read the whole thing!


  1. In the words of John Cole, Matt Taibbi is an American Hero.

    I was never impressed with DeSantis' letter. It smacked of grandstanding and outrageous entitlement. By what standard did he "earn" $700K in bonuses?

    What we're finding out in this financial crisis is how fungible the word "earn" really is.

  2. All over the Net there is a passionate debate between those favouring Mr DeSantis and those refusing his letter. Mr Taibbi stirred and sublimated this discussion to a higher level. Even thought I don't always agree with the outcome of his writings, it must be said that he and his articles are needed in these times when people forget to think for themselves.

    Take care,


Come Hard Or Not At All!
