On The Money

Big Guy returned from his eight-day trip and was none too pleased with what he found here at the White House. Beer stains on the ceiling of the Oval, beer-bottle caps in the chandelier, and the remnants of a potted plant that appeared to have caught fire from someone trying to grill on the portico near the Rose Garden.

During the morning economic briefing, Big O challenged those in the room to come clean. Geithner stuck his hand up, only to claim that Toes had been the one responsible. This was entirely plausible since Rahm hadn't joined us in Europe until we it France, and he was pretty sketchy about what he'd been doing in DC while we were away. "TATUS, you're a [bleeping] snitch," Toes yelled. It goes without saying that Toes was working away with a bucket and sponge by the time that meeting was over.

But TATUS didn't escape Big Guy's ire. He hates a tattler. That 500-point loss the market took while we were overseas got Geithner a week without his car and driver. It's all about carrots and sticks with this administration.

  1. If Nancy Pelosi became the First Dog, would she still be Speaker of the House?

  5. If Fancy Nancy is the White Houses Dog, she certainly seems to be leading Big Guy around by the leash.

  6. "Big Guy ... was none too pleased ..." that he missed out on another economic strategy session.

    From what B.O. & Co. have come up with so far [unless they are intentionally sabotaging the U.S. economy and I wouldn't be surprised], they must be 3 sheets to the wind when they come up with their "plans." Then, D'oh! and TATUS can't even remember them the next day when they're questioned about the budget (..... uh.... we're still workin' on that) or the remaining bailout funds (ONLY $100,000 off, Timmy) or how many states in the Union [57? 60? 62?] or ......
