How Many Times Did Sen. Levin Say 'Sh**ty Deal'?
| April 27, 2010 | 12:53 PM EDT

Watching the Goldman Sachs hearing, you had to wonder — is it taking place in the Senate or South Park ?

While grilling David Sparks, the former head of Goldman’s mortgage department, Sen. Carl Levin (D., Mich.), quoted, paraphrased and practically freestyle rapped Goldman e-mails that involved the words “sh**ty deal.”

"Boy, that Timberwolf was one sh**tty deal," Levin said, reciting an email about a deal involving subprime mortgages.

"How much of that sh**ty deal did you sell to your clients?" he asked Sparks.

“You knew it was a sh**y deal!" Levin exclaimed, hammering away at Sparks — and that “sh**y deal” phrase.

Levin fired off “sh**y deal” a whopping TEN — I'm sorry, ELEVEN — TIMES, sounding more like South Park's resident ranter Eric Cartman than a U.S. senator.

“I don’t recall,” said Sparks, with a perplexed look on his face like Kenny, the character they kill off in every South Park episode.

Only, if it were a South Park episode, he could end it by simply saying, "Shut up, Cartman!"
