In the ongoing battle between good and evil, we’re pretty sure Elizabeth Warren is one of the good ones. A Harvard professor who sticks up for the middle class, she’s a popular pick to lead the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She’d be expected to fight for average consumers against the banks, the system, the man, and anything else that goes bump in the night.
But Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner hasn’t seemed very excited about her prospects, reportedly opposing her nomination. Of course, he hasn’t gone on the record saying that. But the good folks at Funny Or Die have a contraption that translated his thoughts from a recent interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
Good news, FOD — Geithner’s department no longer controls the heavily armed Secret Service. But they still run the IRS, so enjoy your upcoming audit.
