Ron Paul and Alan Grayson question whether "Bernanke is fit to serve" and ask Senate to postpone his confirmation

Oddly enough, this news has not been reported by any major channel or media yet. The Huffington Post has published a report.

The letter goes by:
Dear Chairman Dodd and members of the Banking Committee,

We are writing to ask you to postpone the confirmation of Ben Bernanke until the Federal Reserve releases documentation that will allow the public and the Senate to have a full understanding of the commitments that the Federal Reserve has made on our behalf.

Ron Paul and Alan Grayson
The 3-page letter is definitely worth reading (available from the Huffington Post link).
