In which I reveal that I am a foul sexist

Janet Yellen it is and Hurrah!.

And I realise that I’m looking at a picture of her and thinking, well, you know, when she was younger, I bet she was really rather hot, a babe in fact. Bone structure doesn’t lie over things like that.

And of course this is grossly sexist. For I never did think that about Larry Summers.

I’m not sure whether to apologise or just top myself toot sweet.

  1. One fun game you can play if you feel like making yourself depressed is to look at young people (male or female, no sexism required) and guess what they’re going to look like when old. After a while it’s quite easy to mentally do the expected morphing in your mind’s eye. And then find oneself overwhelmed by the tragedy of the human condition.

    Anyhoo, it’s strange that somehow they’ve appointed someone who isn’t a Goldman Poddie. Though I see she’s an enthusiastic low interest rater, so that’ll be another ruinous false boom then, yay.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    The world’s economies are on the brink of possible disaster – except of course as far as a default goes as that is just Barack Obama trying to get around the Constitution – and Barry goes for an Affirmative Action appointment?

    I wouldn’t celebrate that if I were you. Look how pathetic all his other AA appointments have turned out. His token Black, Eric Holder, has been appalling. But the litany of failure that is pretty much every appointment of a woman suggests Barry can’t pick ’em.

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    Perhaps it is time to link two TW articles together and ask if those two BA stewardesses could do a better job?

    You know, I think they might. It is worth a try anyway. How much worse could they do? And they may be looking for work soon so they are available.

  4. Don’t beat yourself up about being sexist.

    For the record, I don’t think of Larry Summers as being remotely attractive, either.

  5. A gel in the Tel refers to her as a “former graduate” of Brown. That implies either that Yellen has relinquished her degree, or that Brown has seized it back. Or, of course, that the gel is tin-eared.
