    Corzine’s parachute

    Corzine’s parachute

    As it has been widely reported, Jon Corzine will get a golden parachute valued at $12.1 mn after driving MF Global into the ground. Fair enough. After all, it wasn’t paid for with taxpayer money and the firm failed by making some appallingly bad bets.

    My only wish is that Corzine takes this parachute as a cease and desist from working. He is the embodiment of Murphy’s Law & the Dunning-Kruger effect. I don’t think America can afford for him to have another office, but this may at least stymie his efforts to help get Wall Street donations for the Obama campaign.

    A cease and desist from working? We can do better than that. Here’s a few jobs he could have:

    Chairman of the Democratic National Committee
    Chairman of Obama for President 2012
    President of the Teamsters
    President of the AFL-CIO
    Special Advisor to the President on Czars
    CEO of
    CEO of ThinkProgress

    I’m sure there are other jobs he’d be great for – anyone else?

    Write him a check. Watch it bounce. Laugh. Tell him to get in line behind the clients who lost millions. Make him wear his nametag while in line. Call an ambulance.

    Looks like that parachute will be dropping him in court and possible the Federal pen (assuming he gets it and doesn’t just freefall).

    You can count the fact that he didn’t go to jail after nearly ruining New Jersey as well.

    Real liberals are never successful at running an honest business. However, they ARE great schemers, liars and beneficiaries though…
