Spit String on Ben Bernanke’s Lips – 60 Minutes Interview with Scott Pelley

Get the man a glass of water, handkerchief , or don’t ask him to talk for long periods of time.  Gross!  I only noticed the spit once.  See screenshot below.  It was evident throughout this 45 second comment…

“Let me give you an analogy, if I might.  If you have a neighbor, who smokes in bed. And he’s a risk to everybody. If suppose he sets fire to his house, and you might say to yourself, you know, ‘I’m not gonna call the fire department. Let his house burn down. It’s fine with me.’ But then, of course, but what if your house is made of wood? And it’s right next door to his house? What if the whole town is made of wood? Well, I think we’d all agree that the right thing to do is put out that fire first, and then say, ‘What punishment is appropriate? How should we change the fire code? What needs to be done to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future? How can we fire proof our houses?’ That’s where we are now. We have a fire going on.”
