The Grand Old Plutocrats

The Republicans ride to the defense of Goldman Sachs, via Vox Popoli.

In a just world, Goldman Sachs would be floating belly-up in bankruptcy court.

Actually, in a just world, Goldman Sachs' facilities would be razed to the ground and its principals thrown into the street as their houses are pillaged, in front of their weeping families and mistresses.

But in a just world, would a bankruptcy court even exist?
I think procedures for receivership--the involuntary seizure of assets and orderly liquidation of debts--will always be around.

In any event, I'm sure the officers and employees of GM and Goldman Sachs are thankful that it's not a just world.
