It Was That Kind of a Day

Yesterday Democrat Paul  Kanjorski blasted Tim Geithner and the excuse mongering at the White House:

I’m sick and tired of hearing the administration and the secretary of the Treasury say, “I just found out about it.” That’s not true, and if he did just find out about it on Thursday or Wednesday then he better get to this mail department and to his telephone people because we communicated with the Treasury at least six or seven times.

Apparently, he doesn’t realize we are in the best of hands and that not since Alexander Hamilton has the Treasury Secretary had it so tough. But, then again, the good congressman from Pennsylvania voted for the stimulus bill with the Chris Dodd bonus protection provision in there. Without reading it of course, because who had time?
