A joke the other night that was vintage Leno:
Last week, President Obama gave a speech in New York City about his plan to reform these rules on Wall Street, you know? And one embarrassing moment. When the head of Goldman Sachs was going through security, he was asked to empty his pockets and five Republican senators fell out.
It was also vintage bull patties. The Democrat Party long ago became the party of the wealthy. And it is also the party of Wall St. The reality is that Goldman Sachs was the second largest contributer to Obama's election campaign. And billionaire hedge fund manager, John Paulson, the man at the center of the SEC complaint against Goldman Sachs, also appears to have favored Democrats with his largesse. He gave $30,400 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in June, qualifying him as a major Democratic donor. Leno's joke, though quite funny, was playing to a narrative, not reality.
