"Matt Taibbi Now Resorting To Calling Goldman Sachs Fat " (GS)

Half the value of pull-quotes depends on who's doin' the pulling. In this case it's Bess Levin at Dealbreaker:
Defenders of Goldman have been quick to insist that while the bank may have had a few ethical slips here and there, its only real offense was being too good at making money. We now know, unequivocally, that this is bullshit.
Goldman isn’t a pudgy housewife who broke her diet with a few Nilla Wafers between meals — it’s an advanced-stage, 1,100-pound medical emergency who hasn’t left his apartment in six years, and is found by paramedics buried up to his eyes in cupcake wrappers and pizza boxes. [Rolling Stone]
Along with some pretty good headlines (e.g. above) I've done some coffee snorts reading the post-tags.
