Uh, no, you must mean the other bald guy who's always around: desk traders on the Street are cracking up over this faux-pas by Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur during an exchange with Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke:

Marcy Kaptur, D Ohio :Seeing how you were the former CEO of Goldman Sachs ….

Bernanke: No.. no..no..You are confusing me with the Treasury Secretary!

Kaptur: I got the wrong firm? Oh, uh, where were you sir?

Bernanke: I was the CEO of the Princeton economics department.

Kaptur: Oh, I'm sorry, I got you confused with the other one. I'm sorry. I'm glad you clarified that for the record.
