Brilliant article in the Financial Times today. Dripping with sarcasm and wit. Alas its a bit technical and you'll enjoy it immensely if you have a bit of background in finance, but even otherwise its a good read.
For those not in touch with American politics or high finance -

He got defeated in the election in 2010, by Chris Christie who is the current Governor of New Jersey.
