Tim Geithner’s Throne (and more)

June 5, 2009

Geithner's ThroneA wise man once said, “You can judge a man by the company he keeps.” Rocky finds this platitude unsatisfying. Rocky also wants to see the man’s “abode.” Oops, typo. Make that “commode.”

Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geither continues to (unsuccesfully) market his New York suburban home. The listing is now on Zillow. Click here for details and pictures.

Mindful that former Federal Reserve Chairman said that he did his best thinking in the bathtub, the world can now see the room [click here] in which Secretary Geithner dreamed up the TARP. The computer on which he botched his income taxe return [click here.] And most importantly, the room to which he fled, when he learned that Lehman filed for bankruptcy [click here.]
While Mrs. Geithner sits by the phone waiting for a call from the producers at MTV Cribs and House Hunters, Trophy Wife asks, “What’s with those blue bathroom tiles anyway?”

    You’ve got me stumped on this one. I REALLY want to comment but I have no idea what to say. 🙂

    George and LD:
    Rocky just completed a careful study of the blue tile pattern, and is convinced that there is an embedded cypher ala John Nash’s observations in “A Beautiful Mind”


    Here’s what Rocky has de-coded so far:

    “Listen my children and you shall hear,
    Of the midnight ride of diarrhea….”
