Fannie Mae should get a C, not an AA+

That's my reaction, anyway. I never got a double A+ for doing stuff that foolish. The student loan bubble has yet to pop... Probably lots of these other agencies getting downgraded are also severely compromised. No one wants to admit it for fear of causing our house of cards to topple all at once...

Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services on Monday downgraded the credit ratings of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and other agencies linked to long-term U.S. debt.

The agency also lowered the ratings for: farm lenders; long-term U.S. government-backed debt issued by 32 banks and credit unions; and three major clearinghouses, which are used to execute trades of stocks, bonds and options.

All the downgrades were from AAA to AA+.
