Making off with Rich's riches

It's just too delicious, as in: set a thief to rob a thief.

Turns out Bernie Madoff has made off with 10 to 15 million buckaroonies of Marc Rich's stolen booty. How sweet is THAT? And the hedge fund manager who got swindler Rich entangled with swindler with Madoff is named Merkin. The names are unbeatable.

You remember richie Rich, dontcha? He's the slimeball who fled to Switzerland to evade U.S. prosecution for financial crimes, meaning mega-theft, back in 1983. Yup, the same guy whose curvy blonde ex-wife Denise Rich used to fundraise for Bubba Clinton while simultaneously taking care of some of Bill's other prodigious appetites. Which is why the Clintonator disgraced the final days of his administration, again, by awarding Rich a presidential, gag me with a spoon, pardon.

Turds of a feather flock together.

And now we learn that not only was Bernie using his house arrest to ship jillions in jewels to his family and thus evade creditors, but when he was arrested on 11 December he had $173 million in personal checks sitting in his desk drawer made out to his beloved relatives--- kindly holiday bonuses, yes, from the Bad Santa of Wall Street. One minute it's so sweeeeeet to be related to Bernie, the next, so sour.
