Where in the world is Chris Dodd?

Yooo-hoooo. Knock-knock. Anybody home? The calls for an investigation into the unscrupulous Democrat borrower friends of Angelo Mozilo (Democrat Sens. Chris Dodd and Kent Conrad, former Obama VP advisor and Democrat insider Jim Johnson, Clinton Democrat officials Donna Shalala, Richard Holbrooke, and Franklin Raines, plus former Bush HUD secretary Alphonso Jackson) are piling up. Conrad at least made a lame and disingenuous attempt to address the issue.

But Sen. Chris Dodd is hiding under the bed:

Unlike his colleague from North Dakota, Sen. Kent Conrad, who spoke at length about the accusations he’d received special bargains on Countrywide Financial Corp. home loans because of his Senate position, Sen. Chris Dodd hasn’t said much about the similar reports about his loans.

Dodd, whose 2003 loans for his homes in DC and Connecticut apparently went through a special “VIP” program set up by Countrywide’s CEO, has denied he knew about it, but he hasn’t said anything further.

You couldn’t get the guy to shut up about unscrupulous lenders until just a few weeks ago.

Funny, that.
