Similar to the real
stress tests, Secretary Geithner, here played by SNL
cast member Will Forte, has decided to evaluate banks on a pass/pass
basis–after consulting with his old Wall Street colleagues, of course.
In spite of the low standards for the written exam and the fact that
“taxpayer bailout” was the answer to thirty of the fifty questions, the
banks still gave many wildly inaccurate responses. Geithner reviews some
commonly missed questions and singles out Citigroup for being “a bunch
of smart ass punks.”
