Neither a Geithner Nor Lender Be

A huge hat tip to Mike at Mike's Neighborhood for pointing to the clarifying, scarifying interview Bill Moyers conducted with William K. Black--the economics scholar who helped expose the Keating Five (hi, Senator McCain!)--last week. Just go read the whole thing. But here's one of my favorite chunks:

There's a saying that we took great comfort in. It's actually by the Dutch, who were fighting this impossible war for independence against what was then the most powerful nation in the world, Spain. And their motto was, "It is not necessary to hope in order to persevere."

So we learn, once again, perhaps the best journalist in the U.S. is Bill Moyers. And we learn, again, Geithner has got to go.

I'm seeing *no* leadership in the House or the Senate to call again for Geithner's ouster.

I'm calling in a few favors to get a face-to-face with one of my Senators. At least I will have felt like I did something...
