BREAKING: NEW TREASURY SECRETARY LOOKS NOTHING AT ALL LIKE HIS WALL STREET JOURNAL STIPPLE PORTRAIT
Seriously, is it just us? The one one the right is a like a John Turturro/John Waters-lookin' guy.
Bush's announcement: boring. Though we did learn that the Treasury Secretary has some sort of role in fighting terror. We suppose we shouldn't be surprised, but we do want to know if there's a single job in this administration that doesn't directly involve fighting terror. Cook? First lady?
Anyway, new guy's name is apparently Hank, which is just obnoxious for a public official.
Heck, he's probably a nice guy -- seems to have given a lot of money to conservation groups, and no one who loves trees can be all bad.
Awww, John Snow's making one last half-assed effort to pretend that the President gives a shit about sound economic policy and that Snow had any authority. Treasury: "Key role in the war on terror."
Paulson: does he have a cold or does he always talk like "Macho Man" Randy Savage?
