WAY MORE INFORMATION ABOUT BOB RUBIN THAN YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW: Yves Smith linked to this as her must read of the day, though I can't exactly recommend reading it myself. Some things--like wealthy, entitled economy-destroying political functionaries' "game" with the ladieeeeez--are best left to the imagination. But if you just cover your eyes during those parts, you will be able to appreciate the gist of this writer's point: that Rubin is incompetent, has little interest in the business he's worked in for years, and we are better off if he just goes fishing in the NBA On TNT sense. And if you just can't take any part of it, Rubin-nuzzling depictions or not, here's the gist:

Can this country really afford to appoint bratty teenagers to positions of power and influence when they have already demonstrated to us, over and over again, that they are no more capable of taking responsibility for their actions than bratty teenagers?

 I say, no! Of course not! But that's never stopped us before (either me saying no or there being a host of obvious reasons to say no.)
