Tell Bernie Sanders, "thanks for looking out!"

Bernie Sanders has used a bit of Senate finesse to block the renomination of Ben Bernanke to head the Federal Reserve. Chris Bowers over at Closed Left explains what's happening, but what it all boils down to is that Sanders has managed to hold up the renomination of one of Bush's creatures to a hugely important office. Obama and Wall Street want Bernanke to stay and keep fucking up the economy. Sanders is looking like one of the only senators willing to go on record and try to stop this from happening.

So please click the link above and thank Bernie for looking out for us. And while you're at it, use the Senate phone directory to call your own senator and demand a filibuster of Bernanke's renomination. We need someone in there who will actually represent the public interest.

I noticed this today, too. I LOVE Bernie Sanders, one of the only congresscritters to stand up and call a spade a spade. I only wish......................................but then, I'm a progressive and I loath Rahmie! It's this unelected pig that is DLCing more PUKIES, pushing his own agenda with 'bipartisonshit', and Afganistan/Pakestan, too, and on and on and on, ..........................................GAG He'll torpedo Kuchinich again, Feingold from Wis., Grayson will get his first slap-down, etc. My Q is how do we rid ourselves of a creature worse than Rove???????
