All I can say is, bravo Mr. Cuomo! Someone in the political establishment finally understands that the situation is dire and people need (deep down in their atavistic souls, they NEED) to see a few heads on stakes outside the city gate.

Rattner is perfect as the first scapegoat: that NAME, those connections, the obscene wealth, and the HUBRIS of a guy who wants to take credit for “saving” GM on a weekend fly-in.

Q: What do you call Rattner’s head on a stake by the banks of the East River?
A: A start.
