Friday Porn: Chrystia Freeland Edition


Now that's what we call a stimulus package!

Chrystia Freeland, US managing editor of the Financial Times, a pink (never pinko) British newspaper devoted to quaint terms like "sport," "pint," and "Tony Blair," has an adjustable rate The Darn News would like to fix. With recession bearing down on the US, who better to explain the current swales of the American stock market than a Canadian-born Ukrainian who writes for a broadsheet with its headquarters in London?

When regular economic forecasts don't have us dusting off our barrel-comically-attached-to-suspenders outfit and ducking inside the nearest Hooverville, Team DN enjoys Freeland's lucid take on the complex domestic monetary issues so essential to Paul Krugman's shrill career. Plus, in her TV appearances, she's usually wearing something plunging and/or leather.

"The future is now." "The world is flat." "Lead, follow or get out of the way." "He who smelt it, dealt it." It truly is a financial jungle out there, folks, but, luckily, there's hot broads like Chrystia Freeland to make sense of it all. Securitized mortgages may be opaque babble; hedge fund exchange-rate maneuverings a mystery to you and me; but, as long as attractive women continue to talk about the state of the market, we'll watch. Just that it has to air on network TV -- we're too fucking poor to pay next month's cable bill.

Smart broads with dark hair and flashing eyes, hard to find that unattractive.

"He who smelt it, dealt it."
Now that brings back memories.

Saw that ho debating Pat Buchanan on TV one time, tried real hard to beat off but the sight of ol' Pat kept killing my vibe.
