I believe they were talking about the possibility of a bailout without a rate cut when Kneale and Griffeth teamed up for these metaphors:
"What they’re doing is kind of like when you reach to give a friend a high-five and then he leaves you hanging." – Kneale
"Yeah, we said earlier it’s a little like showing up to a costume party where you’re the only one dressed up." – Griffeth
I guess it wouldn’t really be a costume party then would it, Bill? I feel sorry for you two nerds, I really do.
There hasn’t been this much embarrassing detail revealed live on CNBC since Erin Burnett described the markets as "a colonic".
