At Least One Person Would Like To See Tim Geithner Do Porn

Earlier today on CNBC, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus pitched a new TV series. “Take Timothy Geithner and put him in a new reality show," Marcus told Squawk Box. "It’s called 'Timothy Geithner Does Small Business', something like 'Debbie Does Dallas', and it ends up the same way,” he said. ”Basically, what they [the government] is doing to small business is very similar in this case [to what ‘Debbie’ did to Dallas.]”

Marcus felt this was the best way to illustrate what he feels is "how out of touch Democrats' policies are with the private sector." Unfortunately, he didn't get into any specifics with regard to the format of the show, in detail, scene by scene, etc. Does it start out with Tim Geithner going online or opening up the yellow pages and finding a small business that tickles his fancy? Does he then get in his van (you know the kind), drive over there, walk down the aisle of, for instance, the local hardware store, unbuckle and drop trou among the cans of varnish, do what he came to do and nonchalantly walk out? Does he talk to anyone before he leaves? These are the things we need answers to.

Make what you will of this somewhat bizarre story but our takeaway is that the Treasury Secretary's FIL would make a great party guest and/or Benihana tablemate. Food critic Albert Sonnenfeld, whose daughter, Carole, is wed to the country’s top money man, stunned strangers at Bar Boulud Thursday night when he claimed President Obama’s nomination of Dartmouth College president Dr. Jim Yong Kim to head the World Bank was part of a plan to allow Geithner to take over the Ivy League school’s top post...“That’s why Obama nominated [Kim] for the World Bank — so that there’d be an opening,” Sonnenfeld claimed to a dinner companion at the eatery’s communal table. Seated with five other couples he didn’t know, Sonnenfeld indiscreetly claimed Geithner has since changed his mind. “They offered him the presidency of Dartmouth. But now he doesn’t want it,” said the gabby granddad. “He wants something else...Sonnenfeld also let slip that Carole Geithner “can’t wait to get out” of DC because “she has to hold her nose and entertain all these Republicans.” Sonnenfeld added, according to the witness, “Some of them she actually liked, like Jim Bunning from Kentucky. But now he’s gone. Can you imagine having to entertain John Boehner and his wife, with his fake tan?” Geithner spokesman Anthony Coley told us, “Interesting theory about Dartmouth, but to paraphrase Kissinger: ‘It has the disadvantage of being made up.'"
