In other news, the Senate has voted to confirm Janet Yellen as next Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve by a margin of 56 to 26. Yellen will be the first woman to serve as the head of the Federal Reserve.
Rand Paul could be overheard muttering inane conspiracy theories as the vote concluded.
Not really but maybe.
Actually Rand Paul tweeted absolute nonsense about the Fed all day long. This one was my favorite.
The Fed's non-stop printing press crashed the economy and buried it under the rubble of endless bailouts and a devalued currency.

According to Monetary Policy Scholar Rand Paul, it wasn’t the subprime mortgage industry and Wall Street that crashed the economy, it was the evil Fed.
