If Bernie Madoff did not exist, it would be necessary to create him.

We are awash in lies indeed. The need to believe that Madoff could get his favored investors into 15% returns or better from Secret Default Swaps inside the system overseas is that same need to here sweet loving lies that has been the basis for every con in history. Now does Obama give us the sweet loving speech that we want to here on demand, or what?

To everyone else in prison, he's just a potential bitch.

@Bob: I wouldn't think that an unfit elderly Jewish gentleman's derriere would be a very hot commodity, even for the most romance-starved felons.

BTW, Happy Hanukkah y'all!

There's got to be more than a few guys in there with a burning desire to know what Bernie knows.

Scott said...

Yeah, but who would want to "know" him in the Biblical sense?

Why ain't AlGore sharing a cell?

We need a new kind of prison humor.

Bernie should enjoy his celebrity status while he can. Once the bill for Obama's scams gets totaled up, the Madoff swindle will be strictly little league.

It doesn't appear to be the hardest of hard time. The fellow prisoners don't sound like the type to murder their fellow inmates just to make a point about their precedence in the pecking order. He has reason to feel despair about the past but little cause to be in mortal dread of the future. In that sense he is better off tham many of his investors who are still waiting for another shoe to fall. Madoff knows the worst than can happen; they don't....For a sociopath, he made a pretty good deal. He got to live the important years of his life as a billionaire. As an elderly man, he will live out his days in a place that's no worse than many nursing homes.

Interesting how the jerk contingent on here manages to pull President Obama into everything. You of course will remember that Madoff perfected his schemes during the Bush SEC...you do remember that don't you? Or have you been drinking too much of the Glenn Beck coolaide?

It amazes me that some on here can be so petty and closed minded. Astonishing stupidity many would call it. Shit for brains. Ya'betcha.

Good:

Put all the con artists in prison so they can worship each other.

Hey brainiac, have you by chance looked at the deficient spending and the national debt this past year? And the projected same for the next eight years? Completely dwarfs Madoff. THAT'S how Obama got drug into this.
