Does This Look Like an $80 Haircut to You?

Maybe it shouldn't be such a surprise that Geithner has cut such bad deals that favor Wall Street firms. He can't even negotiate a decent price for a haircut (or get a decent haircut).

Andrew Ross Sorkin in his new book, Too Big To Fail, reports that the normally frugal Treasury Secretary splurges for his haircuts and pays $80 for them.

    It's not about the haircut itself. It's about the way his barber talks to him and takes his stress away and makes him feel like everything is going to be okay. Such a wise barber. He makes Timmy feel so pretty inside.

    "Timmy my boy, you're special, don't ever let anyone tell you differently!"

    (Timmy gives one of his patented evil smirks as he sits thoughtfully, pondering the barbers words.)

    "Yeah, I guess you're right, I am special. Thanks, Hank, for helping me remember that when I am feeling like the world and the markets are against me. See you next week!"
