Add Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to the list of incompetent Bush appointees. He can join such stalwarts as the hapless "Brownie", would be Supreme Court Justice Harriet Miers, AG Anthony Gonzales, US Attorney Johnnie Sutton, Homeland Security honcho Michael Chertoff and CIA chief George Tenant. Bernanke's chief failing seems to be that he is an academic, insulated and naive about the real world. He demonstrated this early on by his loose lips at a cocktail party when he apparently lost his bearings while in conversation with Maria Bartoroma, but Wall Street and the financial media cut him some slack. In retrospect, she would have done us all a giant favor if she had had the effect on his career she did on that Citibank guy. Bernanke seems now to be auditioning for a new nickname. I can understand wanting to ditch the "helicopter" appellation, but do we really want a central bank chief whose new nick is "Bankruptcy?"
