S&P Analyst: CDOs Are ‘Burning Down the House’

Is it possible that the Credit analysts who rated subprime junk as AAA at S&P are even more odious, more corrupt, more execrable than I previously imagined?

As this email from the government’s complaint (via Dealbook) shows us, yes!


[S&P analyst]: With apologies to David Byrne…here’s my version of “Burning Down the House“.

Watch out
Housing market went softer
Cooling down
Strong market is now much weaker
Subprime is boi-ling o-ver
Bringing down the house

Hold tight
CDO biz — has a bother
Hold tight
Leveraged CDOs they were after
Going — all the way down, with
Subprime mortgages

Own it
Hey you need a downgrade now
Huge delinquencies hit it now
Bringing down the house.
