Geithner Measured for a Chicago Overcoat

David Plouffe: So, Mr. Axelrod, I hear dat da President has went and tol’ Secretary Geithner dat his job is secure. Whaddaya make a’ dat?

David Axelrod: Why, it’s like dis, Mr. Plouffe. Remember, back in Chicago, when we tol’ a guy, what had made hisself kinda inconvenient, dat we wuz "takin’ him for a ride"?

Plouffe: Yeh, I remember. It’s like ya tell a guy one ting, but ya mean sump’n else, right?

Axelrod: Exactly, Mr. Plouffe. Ya take da edge off sump’n by callin’ it some other ting.

Plouffe: Yeh, yeh, I got it. It’s…Now, what’s dat woid…roomatism?

Axelrod: Moicy me, Mr. Plouffe, youse have went and used another malaplop expression. Da woid is “eufeminism”.

Plouffe: Oh…But what’s dis got to do with skoits, Mr. Axelrod?

Axelrod: It ain’t got nuttin’ to do with skoits. It wouldn't cuz it's a Greek woid, see?

Plouffe: Oh, well, yeh, I can see dat. So, to make a long story short, Geithner’s toast, right?

Axelrod: Boint to a crisp, Mr. Plouffe.

So can Treasury do less damage if it's completely unmanned?

I may have gotten proof this morning that Geithner's a bigger dum-dum than first thought. Will forward the email to you, Paco - I didn't open it, so let us know if I should have!

Retread, at this point, the White House would do less damaged completely unmanned!

I agree, JeffS, but I don't think we get The Won to resign.

BTW, the market is up, way up, on hearing some details about the public/private partnership. Don't let Congressmen be the only ones who make a pile of money on this, if you have nerves of steel that is.
