Everyone’s favorite missing, bankrupt, and possibly insane Lehman Brothers CEO made his first public appearance today for testimony on Capitol Hill.
Looks like we were wrong to say he was locked in a room somewhere acting like a reclusive Howard Hughes. He actually cleaned up rather nicely and look at that sweet blue and white polka dot tie — how delightfully whimsical!
Rep. Henry Waxman wouldn’t let him off the hook though, so watch Dick spend a cringe-inducing 5 minutes trying to avoid saying "Sorry I made so much money while screwing everyone over.":
Honestly can we really hold these CEOs responsible for wanting to earn more money? Show me a Wall Street executive out there whose compensation package isn’t questionable. Either way, Fuld is just too pompous to ignore in this case.
