Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Turbo Tax Timmeh consulting the experts on the economy

We often chastize President Kick#ss and his Merry Band of Hapless Meat Sticks for not consulting with true, actual experts when it comes to solving real world problems.  It is only fair that we give them their due when they do consult experts.  And by “experts”, I clearly mean…Jon F’ing Kerry Stewart.

Wait, what?  Seriously?

Yeah.  Seriously:

In the midst of debates on financial regulation and China’s currency in April, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner sat down to discuss the U.S. economy — with comedian Jon Stewart.

Geithner and Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” held an off-the-record meeting at Stewart’s office in New York on April 2, according to Geithner’s appointments calendar, updated through August on Treasury’s website.

Geithner didn’t stay for a television interview with Stewart although other administration officials — most notably President Barack Obama last week — have turned up for on-camera chats.

“Jon Stewart is influential in America, so we took the opportunity for the two to meet and to discuss the economy,” Treasury spokesman Steve Adamske said in an e-mail yesterday. Stewart’s program has poked fun at Geithner, including a segment last year about the Treasury secretary’s trouble selling his New York home.

What’s next?  Sending Hillary to meet with Cedric the Entertainer for diplomacy advice on China?

Wow. Inspires confidence, no?

  1. I *knew* the very second that President Obama was fucked – it was when Jon Stewart, formerly quite a fan, went on a rant about him. Someone wise must be consulting with the administration for PR.

  2. PR. The current administration needs people like Jon Stewart to sell the nation. President Obama was clearly in trouble when Jon Stewart started getting angry.

  4. I try not to censor, Marla, unless it is a mindless vulgar tirade that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Be yourself, ma’am. 🙂
