Tax Cheat Tells Tax Cheat He’ll Crack Down on Tax Cheats

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:16 pm



If I told you that Tim Geithner told Charlie Rangel he plans to crack down on tax cheats, you’d say that’s the punch line to a bad Republican joke. Well, sometimes reality is funnier than Republicans.

  1. Heh.

    I’ve been really busy. How many trillion have we spent today?

  2. Do you mean for legitimate governmental purposes, or for sliming Rush?

  3. Trillion is so yesterday. Googillion is the new budget.

  4. Actually, it’s sad. I thought Geithner might teach at the Learning Annex. Something affordable, for us middle class folks. How To Cheat… and Not Get Caught.

  5. there’s no way they can catch all the cheaters:
    there are only so many Cabinet posts to appoint people to.

  6. The sad thing that as funny as this plot is (tax cheat tells tax cheat, etc.) it will never wind up on a Saturday Night Live skit. But they will still go after Sarah Palin.

  7. You know what’s really funny about all these tax-paying problems?

    If it were Republicans, the entire blogosphere and MSM would be alight with the calls for “frog-marching” offenders from the White House.

    But, in this case, it’s simply mistakes.

    As I’ve said before, I doubt the IRS would be so kind if I made a mistake.

  8. Do you mean for legitimate governmental purposes, or for sliming Rush?

    Both, and The One’s entertainment expenses (courtside seats! Weekend Getaways! Redecoration!), and then the cost of destroying capitalism.

  9. All that takes too many zero’s.

  10. and yet there will be no mistake when the cap and trade fiasco jacks your cost of living up, regardless of income level, nor will there be any when “dire necessity” requires Ear Leader to raise taxes on those who make less than the abhorrent $250K/year limit previously espoused.

  11. The Irony Administration…

  12. This is priceless…continually referring to Geithner as a tax cheat is going to take it’s toll…throw in the offer Rush made to Obama that he can’t accept, and this Administration is going to be quickly made into a Carteresque laughing stock…

    Chicken suits anyone?

  13. All that’s left is Obama being attacked by a killer rabbit.

  14. Then he’ll admit to having lusted in his heart.

  15. Do ya think he’ll start wearing a sweater?

  16. Horatio asked:

    Do ya think he’ll start wearing a sweater?

    Not with the thermostat cranked up to 82º, he won’t.

  17. It’s even funnier than it looks at first glance. Tax EVADER Geithner tells tax EVADER Rangel that he’s going to crack down on tax AVOIDERS.

    The difference between tax evasion and tax avoidance is, of course, five years per count. Avoidance is perfectly legal, whereas evasion is criminal.

    Unless, of course, you’re one of the favored like Geithner or Rangel, and then you don’t even pay the interest when you get caught.

  18. It’s bad enough when The Onion reflects reality, but when reality reads like The Onion ….
