The CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association looks every bit as freakishly alien as his job description. At least this confirms something we at Exiled Online always believed: no human being–or any placental mammal for that matter–could possibly devote its life worming its way up to the top slot in a boring, sleazy trade association like the MBA, whose product was at the center of the global meltdown. Nope, only a prawn could manage something that horrible.
The prawn pictured here goes by the human name of John Courson, and this John Courson is calling on the US government to adopt a decidedly hostile-alien program: to overhaul Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by “streamlining” them and shoring them up even further with taxpayer dollars in order to offer explicit guarantees on all the mortgages that the two bankrupt entities back. In placental-mammal terms, what this means is, “Give us your fucking money earthlings, or we’ll blow you all to smithereens.”
