Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s use of Turbo Tax is like Kurt Warner throwing a Nerf football or LeBron James dunking on a Fischer Price hoop.
It’s out of their league and they should be above that amateur format. But not President Obama’s pick for the gatekeeper to the nation’s money.
Can’t Geithner, our Swine of the Week, get some Dartmouth roommate turned accountant to do his taxes for him? Maybe someone he knew when he worked for Henry Kissinger?!
In the Washington-Wall Street marriage, trading favors with buddies is expected because everybody knows Geithner will soon pay those now-Wall Street cronies big bailouts.
