The tiny *expletive* man

Of course, this is round #N in their training manual of media-aided kabuki. Confuse the main issues (defend the horribly un-thought-through recovery plan and focus on the long-term regulatory requirements), reframe the debate (concerns about not having strong regulations expressed by the people who implement them are now suddenly due to ‘turf wars between regulatory authorities’) and make the whole thing public before the other party does.

Bravo, Geithner. Looks like you learnt from the best in the business: your boss!

Me, I’m just grateful we have people like Elizabeth Warren and Sheila Bair still willing to work around this half-brained nutjob.
