Quite a ways into John Heilemann’s looooong New York magazine article about Obama, Geithner and Wall Street, there’s this quote I could have done without:

Indeed, the president’s support for his Treasury secretary has been unwavering. (Axelrod would laugh at rumors that Geithner was about to get the boot: “Don’t these people realize they have a man-crush on each other?”) And Obama’s loyalty has been repaid with results.

I don’t think I want to know what those “results” are, because they’re certainly not a revitalized economy.

Oh sure, it’s a “man crush” in a purely metrosexual way and probably has never devolved into a tickle fight or shopping for shoes together, but still, I like my presidents to have just a tad more testosterone.

    Where’s “Don’t ask,don’t tell” when you need it?

    Having a tad more testosterone also helps with US diplomacy too. Look what Zero has wrought upon us with his pansy assed apology tour.

    As for the Obama/Geitner man love – cheaters never prosper. Geeze and they call us "teabaggers".

    Maybe limp wristed Yo' Momma can get Pelosi to help… Drapes and Grapes!

    Just looking at the pic of Obama hanging drapes, why is there an exit sign above a window?
