Goldman Sachs Gets A Facelift

by Derek Loosvelt | February 22, 2010

It wasn't that long ago that Goldman Sachs was revered as a tight-lipped, no comment, secret society made up of go-getting men and women with pedigree, perfect GPAs and more drive than Richard Petty. Lately, though, the great vampire squid's rep has been severely tarnished, and now it's become so dull that, as the New York Post explains, Big Poppa Blankfein has enlisted an outside PR firm to help improve its image.

Lloyd Blankfein

Speaking of giant blood-sucking head-footed mollusks, the Rolling Stone writer who coined the much-repeated phrase to describe post-bailout Goldman Sachs has just scribed another RS piece about the investment bank that he wants so badly for you to hate, this time calling Goldman the best corporate grifters on the Street and its kingpin "America's pre-eminent Marvel Comics supervillain" (yet another reason for Lex Lloyd to call in the makeup artists and ask for a facelift).
