    Tim GITE-ner shows off his talons he sharpened on the Brooklyn Bridge on his way to school where he became the 'talonted one' who one day would be called on to fight to keep the mighty Yankee Dollar afloat!

    Fixing this economy shouldn't be too hard–when in doubt just rely on the old Magic 8 Ball!

    Seemingly unphased by the latest in the AIG saga, Geithner charms a tough audience with his favorite rendition of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider".

    First, you get $787 billion in Federal Stimulus money. Then you mix it in a little taxpayer disbelief and in 5-10 years, you get a recovery.

    Don't worry – AIG will pay for our suits from the next Stimulus Bill. Dodd has added the amendment behind closed doors.
