Republican New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg blamed the SEC for the nation's financial crisis yesterday, shortly after the Boston native was done pretending to care about the Jets.

In response to Barack Obama's plan to limit the size and scope of the financial institutions that single-handedly crippled the nation's economy with unchecked idiotic risk-taking—a plan that even British Tories support—Mayor-for-Life Mike said: "Trying to interfere with capitalism always leads to some unintended consequences."

Right. We'd better not spook our sensitive (but wise and benevolent!) bank overlords! Because we wouldn't want unintended consequences. Those sound bad!
