Summers’ romance

Mon dieu (via):

Power coupling? Our spies in Cambridge, Mass., where Larry Summers reigns as president of Harvard University, encountered the recently separated second-term Clinton administration treasury secretary jogging Sunday morning with an attractive blonde looking suspiciously like arch-conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. We hear that Summers and Ingraham have been an item for a while now, and that the physically fit Ingraham has been instrumental in the 47-year-old economist’s new diet and fitness regimen that has already relieved him of 20 pounds.

This was ten years ago, but it’s permanently disqualifying in my book. No trial, no jury, straight to execution.

    LOL. I’m not commenting on Summer’s for Fed bit, but I do have to laugh at this being disqualifying for anything…lol. Didn’t Bill Maher used to date Ann Coulter and yet people still like him…lol.

    Still, I don’t hate many people, but man I can’t stand Laura Ingraham. The trifecta of conserv women I can’t stand to see, stands at Da Grifat from Wasilia, Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham/Hasselbach/usual blond-bot on Faux News.

    I don’t care who he fucks, but some of the quotes down at the bottom of the NSFW piece certainly entitle Summers to a good beating, if not execution.

    Between Summers and Ingraham I count four assholes. So multiply, don’t add.

    The right wing economic blogs are all freaking out about Summers because he is not only a Keynesian who wants to facilitate higher deficits with his QE policies and virtually identical to Yellen policy wise, but he also prefers and advocates stimulus (big gubmint spending y’all!!) and has close ties with the DNC!!

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could get those guys to post here just to create a sort of anti Summers super collider?

    that’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen on this blog. I bet if he could he’d buy up every copy of those shows. Not quite as funny as David Letterman having been roped in to a musical number on a Mary Tyler Moore variety show

    and in case anyone missed this:

    Conservative radio host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham attacked the speakers at the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech, at one point using the sound of a gunshot to cut off a sound bite of civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) — a man whose skull was infamously fractured by a state trooper on “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, AL, in 1965. Ingraham used the speech’s anniversary to race-bait about black-on-white crime statistics and hosted Pat Buchanan to bemoan the idea that minorities face any higher level of adversity in America 50 years later

    Vaguely remember Ingraham got in trouble for putting a garden hose through the mail slot of an ex-boyfriend’s door. There’s maturity for you.

    If she wanted to do that to Larry Summers, I would not object.

    @MikeJ: I’d like O-man to make some history here with Yellin, since there’s about a dime’s worth of difference between her and Summers. Him being a general douchenozzle isn’t zesty either.

    Y’know, the real answer to why Summers and Ingraham may be as simple as “neither of them could do any better.”

    Not that I care. I had plenty of reasons to not want Summers as Fed chair before a school of red herring swam into the picture.

    Comrade Jake says:

    I’m not a fan of Summers or his taste in shrews, but what I find comical is the notion that Yellen would represent something radically different from Summers policy-wise. Mostly it seems to me that people like Yellen because they can’t stand Summers.

    AnnieB says:

    Seriously you guys? I’m no Larry Summers fan, I’ve had a personal unpleasant interaction with him, and I have my fingers crossed that he will not be appointed to the Fed. In my opinion, he epitomizes someone who has been failing upward for quite some time. That being said, why the heck are you talking about him and Laura Ingraham in 2013? Since 2005, he’s been in a second marriage with an English professor. You’ve never dated someone you later (deeply) regreted? This conversation is ancient history and reminds me of the kind of scuttlebut that Tea Partiers apparently like to indulge in. Please return to something more interesting/important/meaningful/ or generally entertaining (e.g., how is Steve the cat doing today?)
