If there was any doubt that Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT) is a complete idiot, his gratuitous comments about the big banks today puts the issues to rest.

This guy deserves censure, but for some reason the people of CT keep sending him back to Washington.  The White House had to make a statement to try — emphasis try — to deflect Dodd’s remarks.

As Jim Crammer just said on CNBC: “Geithner has vannished.”
