If this guy is confirmed as Treasury Secretary, I think we can say definitively that President Barack Milhouse Oblahblah and his administration have no respect for the rule of law. Overstating the case, am I? He will be in charge of the IRS. He was advised repeatedly by his then employer, the IMF, to pay the taxes in question. He was busted, but only paid part of the taxes owing, and finally only paid the rest when he was nominated for the position President B. Hubris Obamania now wants him to fill. I love this quote from a member of the Senate Banking Committee: “This is the guy who heads up the IRS,” says the senator who is baffled by Geithner’s situation. “All the taxpayers look to him, and when he says, ‘Gee, I don’t know why’—does that become a defense?”

From Alo Konsen on twitter. I know it's an old nickname, having googled it, but it's new to me, and perfect after that typically empty nothing of a nullity inauguration speech. Perhaps he should have just read a few pages of the phone book, I doubt if any of his unruly acolytes would have noticed! President Bush's speech on returning to Texas, on the other hand, was awesomely awesome - and way funnier!

No, not Philly - although I wouldn't be totally decimated if they did, but I'm rooting for the Cards - the Cedars Junior Boys Eagles Basketball team, who won the John McInnis Junior B Invitational tonight by defeating Nechako Valley (NVSS - Vanderhoof) 50 - 45. Their other 2 games they beat College Heights and John McInnis by 15 or 16 points each. Congratulations, boys!
