Jan 21, 2009 at 12:17 PM

Chose this photo because the idea of Borat in a lime-green, one-piece thong running with the Baywatch Babes is the only pic out there more ridiculous than our government's current obsession with saving the amalgam of toxicity which we call banks.  With Treasury Secretary Nominee, Tim Geithner, testifying before the Senate this morning, there are bailout stories breaking all over the place.  We're happy to see Tall Paul Volcker make an appearance.  Hey Obama: why wasn't Volcker your pick from the start?

Take an afternoon click ride and see where your children's future tax payments are headed.
