Benny Bernanke is bored as hell as he listens to Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Gary Gensler.

Bernanke: “This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

Looking up, Benny ponders what he’s going to have for dinner and when he’s going to have time to watch all of the Breaking Bad episodes from season three so he can watch season 4 as it airs on TV with his wife. “What would Wall Street think if I suddenly got cancer and shaved my head and beard off? I might finally get some respect. Jamie Dimon wouldn’t think of trying to make me look bad, question me.”

And it again reflects upon why he took this job and if he’ll be in the history books as the man who saved the financial system from falling into another Great Depression. “I God damn should be. People don’t realize how close we were to falling apart completely.”

“I should be on a coin god damn it when this is all over,” he says a bit too loudly to himself.

Tim Geithner eavesdrops and hears this and this reaffirms his belief that Bernanke is on the verge of losing it if this debit limit stuff isn’t worked out soon. Just a few weeks ago Geithner caught Bernanke talking into his beard, or that’s what it looked like. He doesn’t think Bernanke can maintain his cool demeanor much longer.
